ANTI-BULLYING/ODD SOCKS/CHILDREN IN NEED

On Monday we begin to take part in the national Anti-Bullying week which has a theme this year of ‘choose respect’. To celebrate our diversity we are having an Odd Socks Day on Monday 12th November.

On Friday 16th November we are going ‘absolutely quackers’ and dressing up for Children in Need. You can dress as something duck-related, something spotty, something wacky or wear whatever you like! We ask that donations of at least £1 are made for this. We are also holding a duck fashion parade in the hall (50p to enter) where you can dress up a plastic duck or design one of your own. You could even win a prize!

KS2 DISCO

Remember to return slips for the KS2 disco next Thursday, 15th November!

10 QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR CHILD

We sent a document home with the newsletter this week, which lists 10 questions  you can ask your child about their day at school. Please try some of them out at home – we’d love to hear about what the children say! You can find the document below.

CO-OP LOCAL COMMUNITY FUND

PTA Guestling Bradshaw Primary School has been chosen for the next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund. The funding round will start from Sunday, 28 October 2018. From this date, Co-op Members can choose our cause to give their 1% to when they spend on selected own-brand products and services. The funding period will run for 12 months until the 26 October 2019. If you are a Co- op member, please help us earn money towards our Outdoor Learning Classroom by choosing our school to give your 1% to.

MEDICINES

Just a reminder that, as per our policy regarding medicines, any medicines required in school time (prescription and non-prescription, including cough sweets, Strepsils etc) must be brought into school in original packaging with child’s name, and a form must be completed by parents (available in the Office). Medicines must also be handed to the Office where they can be stored safely. Thank you.

ALLERGIES

Due to severe allergies we ask that children do not bring oranges or anything similar i.e. satsumas, mandarins etc. to school (even peeled ones).

YOUNG MUSIC MAKERS

The East Sussex Music Service is offering Saturday morning sessions for children aged 3 to 7. Please see the flyer below for details. 

SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT PRIORITIES

This year, all of our School Development Priorities are based on our ‘Inner Space to Outer Space’ theme:
 

Inner Space = Increased levels of resilience and mental well-being evidenced by pupils and staff
Outer Space = Further development of broad-balanced curriculum using outdoor learning and child-led learning opportunities. Increased attainment results, especially in reading and progress measures, especially for boys.

 

We have attached a copy of our Home-School Agreement with this newsletter for you to discuss as a family.

SIERRA LEONE FUNDRAISING

In order to support our link school (Maynard School, Kossoh Town) in Sierra Leone, we are raising money for tables and chairs as there are not enough for every child and the existing ones are in poor condition. If you would like to purchase a gift certificate for a table (£10) or chair (£5), please see Miss Godley or Mrs Rew.

ANY ISSUES OR CONCERNS?

Please raise any issues or concerns that you have about the school via Mr Cline, Mrs Rew, class teachers or the school office so that the matter can be dealt with. We ask that you do not talk about pupils on social media sites (e.g. Facebook). Thanks for your support with this.

UNIFORM

Please make sure your child comes to school wearing smart school uniform every day. We ask that hairbands, clips and bows are small and not multi-coloured and that nail varnish is not worn to school. Please also ensure that socks are plain and not striped or patterned. We have attached the School Uniform policy for your information. Thanks for your co-operation.
