Happy New Year and welcome back to the start of a new term and 2023. It is wonderful seeing all the children back and hearing stories of their Christmases. Don't forget that you can check the curriculum pages of our website to see what your children will be learning over the next few weeks and rest of the year. You can also keep up with all the news from your child's class by visiting their class blog.
Later this week, I will be sending out a questionnaire designed to assess demand for an out-of-hours club to run after school each day - please look out for this and fill it in to let us know if you would use this service.
Many families are finding it hard to manage in today's economic climate. Checking if your child is eligible for free school meals is quick and simple and results in an instant decision. You can apply through the Devon Citizen Portal. This is worth doing even if your child is in KS1 and receiving universal infant free school meals, as all eligible children receive additional funding which can help to pay for extracurricular activities and trips.
Just a reminder please to ensure that your child has their PE kit in school each day (white t-shirt and black/navy shorts and that all lunches are booked through school gateway before 8am each morning.
With a lot of illness at the end of last term, our whole school attendance is currently below our target of 96%. Please help us and your child by prioritising their attendance. If your child is too unwell to attend school, please email or ring the school office before 9am to let us know.
