After all the excitement of the ‘Talent Show’ and ‘Red Nose Day’ (for which we raised an amazing £676)in school last week it has been a relatively quiet this week although a lot of the classes have been on school visits this week. Trips, as the children call them, certainly help to make school life a lot more interesting. The spring term is flying by and I cannot believe that in two weeks it will be Good Friday.
I have to say that this week did not get off to a good start because we had an accident occur as the children were coming into school on Monday morning. There was such a surge as all the children rushed to get through the gates that some smaller children were knocked to the ground and one child had to go to hospital to have stitches to a cut in his head. Although it is great that the children are eager to get into school we do not want them getting injured in the process and we are now ensuring the children walk as they enter the school. It would be good if you could reinforce this for us at home as well. One accident is still one too many.
I have had to go to a lot of meetings this week and as I have been leaving or returning to the school I have noticed that there are still some people who are parking on the zig-zag lines to drop off or collect their children. As I have said many times it is against the law to park on these lines between 8.00am – 5.00pm and if you are caught by the police you will incur a fine. More importantly though it makes the area in front of the school dangerous for the pedestrians who are following the rules and this is not acceptable. Please leave enough time to park your car away from the school and then walk your child into school.
All that is left for me to do is hope that you all have a lovely weekend – the warm weather is not quite with us but let us hope we see some sunshine.
