Cluster Fun Run!
Well done to all of the Cluster Fun Run competitors and a huge thank you to FOGS for helping to organise such a fantastic event in a spectacular setting.
Particular congratulations must go to Hattie, Isla, Oliver and Jett who all finished in 3rd place in their respective races.
October's School Value is fairness. On Friday of last week, Jude and Cooper were presented with their Values Champions certificates for resolving an argument during a football game by themselves and making sure the game was fair.
The school are planning a Christmas trip to the theatre! A provisional booking has been made for Years 1-6 to see The Jungle Book a the Derngate Theatre on Thursday 7th December. Reception are also planning their own trip - more details to follow soon.
Wraparound Care Update
On Tuesday of this week, the PCC responded to school with details of Church Room hire charges and availability. This information will now be considered alongside the original parental consultation so that a sessional cost can be calculated.
The school is working closely with Woodleys Day Nurseries and, following further discussion with them over the next few days, a letter detailing the wraparound care offer will be shared with you. Any offer, however, will be subject to gaining the relevant childcare registration from Ofsted.
In the past week, the school has been made aware of two safeguarding incidents in Great Doddington.
On both occasions a man, driving a white, high top transit van, approached a lone child, asking them if they wanted a lift. The first incident took place at 6.20pm and involved a Year 5 girl, the second took place a few days later at 3.20pm and involved a secondary aged girl. In each case, the girls declined a lift and the van drove off.
Police are aware of the incidents and have issued a description of the van driver:
Please be vigilant and take some time to remind your children of 'stranger danger'.
There are still several Pupil Profiles outstanding. This working document is very important for us to have in school to help us support your child's work and it is vital that your child's Pupil Profile is returned to school or replaced. Separate letters will be sent out with children whose Pupil Profiles we have not received, detailing replacement costs of lost Pupil Profiles.
Quote of the Week
Not a day goes past without a child saying something that makes us laugh. A pupil in our youngest class was engrossed in a role play, taking the part of 'mum' and with her doll cradled lovingly in her arms. When she was asked by her teacher to read to her, she said: 'Ok, is it alright if a carry on breastfeeding my baby while I read?'
