Key Learning Dates 2018/19

Our recent parent working group on the topic of holidays and attendance suggested Green Top publish our key dates for parents. Phase teams will send home details of celebration events and family learning etc but the dates below are what we have already planned into the calendar and which are crucial dates for the school.

To help you enjoy valuable family time we have also arranged our school calendar to help families plan holidays and long weekends together. These dates are: Friday 28th September and Monday 1st October and Friday 28th June and Monday 1st July.

As you know we are have planned a two week half term in the Autumn term, beginning Monday 22nd October. This should allow parents to find cheaper holidays for their families.

ATTENDANCE CHALLENGE RELAUNCH

We have relaunched our Attendance Challenge this half term rather than giving a £100 to the class with the best each term we are now giving £10 to the class with the best attendance each week (if there is a tie the matching winning classes will get £5). This has been a huge hit with the children.

So far class 3 and class 12 have won £10 to spend as they choose. Both classes are saving their money for a bigger reward. Watch the class blogs to see how they choose to spend their money!
