Welcome back after half term to a very busy but informative week. I hope you have been able to meet with your child’s class teacher and gain an insight into how your child is getting on at Astbury School.
I have a few things that I would like to draw your attention to.
This is an opportunity to give your personal views about how well you think the school is doing in meeting the needs of your children. Many of you signed up for the service before the OFSTED inspection but there will be year 1 and Reception parents who have never been on. It is totally anonymous but really important that you give your views. Parents who have already got accounts need to do it again as it is updated each year and your views may well have changed since the last time you were asked. Can I please urge every one of you to visit the website and have your say? It is also important to say here that every adult has the opportunity to contribute, not just one survey per family. Many thanks in advance for taking the time to do this.
The church community, who are responsible for the grounds of the rectory until it is sold, have asked that you do not park on the grass area around the rectory as it is causing damage which is then costing money to repair. The church very kindly give us permission to use this extra space, so please show courtesy back. Thank you.
Reception, Year 1 and 2
This is a reminder for parents that children in these year groups get free fruit every day for their snacks and therefore do not need to bring anything to school. This sits well with our Healthy school status and I encourage you to let us feed your children at break free of charge!!
World book day- 5th March
Please can you make sure your child is dressed as a book character on this day and that they have their favourite book with them? (name inside please in case we have multiple copies)
And finally….. Please see holiday dates for 2015/2016 later on in the newsletter
