Newsletter Issue 14
Friday 12th December 2014
Well, the weather has definitely taken a turn for the worse this week, which is typical given that the school office is now detached from the school whilst the new one is being built! Never mind, as with all aspects of the building process, we are taking the temporary changes in good spirit and ensuring that they don’t affect any aspect of our provision.
Reception have given two fabulous performances today to launch the start of our Christmas celebrations and I am very excited to see the rest of the school getting into the Christmas spirit next week.
It was lovely to see the KS1 children’s faces coming back from the Carriageworks theatre this week, having thoroughly enjoyed their pantomime visit to see “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves”.
Please remember to ask your child to include full names and classes on the envelopes of Christmas cards.
I will be announcing at the start of every performance that there are a small number of children in each year group whose parents have not allowed for their children to be photographed during the productions. In order to safeguard these children and respect the wishes of the families, our policy is that no filming or photographs can be taken during the performance but we certainly will allow time at the end of the performance for families to take photos of their children with friends and class teachers will be responsible for ensuring that those children without authorisation are not included in these photographs. Under no circumstances should photos containing other people’s children be posted on social networking sites or You Tube. This is in line with other Leeds schools. Thank you for your cooperation.
New look newslettersFrom the beginning of the Spring Term, there will be slight changes to the way we share news with parents. You will still receive a weekly newsletter, however this will be an A5 sheet with information regarding the phase highlights of the week, information about what your child will be learning the following week, how you can support them at home in this learning, key reminders and a section for Headteacher items which are relevant to the whole school. In addition to this, we are aiming to provide you with a glossy school “round up”, which shows in pictures and text the significant and brilliant learning and events that take place at Robin Hood retrospectively at the end of each term.
TicketsPlease, please, please don’t forget your tickets for the productions that you are attending. If you do, we will need to ask that you wait to the side until everyone is in so that we can check that the allocated seats are available. Apologies if this sounds pedantic but otherwise it makes a mockery of the ticketing system being in place in the first place!
Sickness and diarroheaPlease observe our policy on sickness and diarrhoea by keeping your child off school for 48 hours in the event of sickness and/or diarrhoea. Thank you.
