Notices and Reminders
It is beginning to feel very autumnal with the colder weather and darker nights drawing in. I especially enjoy this time of year when you see all the bright colours of the leaves and we get to celebrate harvest time.
It was lovely to see so many parents, grandparents, friends and relatives in the church on Wednesday for our Harvest Festival. The children's singing, poetry and artwork were brilliant and the whole event was very uplifting. Many thanks for all your generous donations to DENS and Kings Road Church.
Individual School Photos-Tuesday 11 October
Please ensure your child is dressed smartly in full school uniform on Tuesday next week as the school photographer is coming to take individual/sibling group photos. This includes those who have PE on Tuesday and would normally come dressed in PE kit. These children should bring their PE kits with them.
Parent consultations are being held on Tuesday 18 October from 4.30 to 7.00 and Wednesday 19 October from 3.30 to 6.00, Nursery have an additional date of Thursday 20 October. These will be face to face and the online booking letter has been sent out for you to book a slot.
Lunchboxes and Snacks
As we pride ourselves in being a healthy school, please could the food in your child’s lunch box or snack not include sweets. We also have had a situation where a child kindly gave one of their items of food to another child. Although this was done with good intentions, we will be reminding children in school about not sharing snacks because of allergies.
