Parent Governor Election

I would like to say a huge thank you to our parent governor candidates - Peter Handcock, Gemma Broadhead and Lucy Swales. All three were prepared to commit time and effort to support the school at a strategic level in the important role of parent governor and I am very grateful that they all stood for election. 

Voting concluded at lunchtime today, votes have been counted and candidates have been informed of the outcome. Congratulations go to Lucy Swales, the winning candidate.

Thank you to everyone who voted - approximately 36% of the parent body returned ballot papers.

Director Of Public Health - Letter To Parents

Schools have been asked to share a letter from the Director Of Public Health. The letter offers general reminders and guidance on minimising risk of Covid infection in response to a significant increase in cases locally and includes actions for families to take both during and after the half term break.

Diwali Preparations

Cedar Class pupils are busy preparing for their Diwali celebrations just after half term. Helping them today with Indian drumming were members of Kanaiya's immediate and extended family! So generous of them to offer their time the school to support the children.

As we head into the second half of the Autumn Term, I would like to share a gentle reminder that our morning session begins at 8.55am. The number of lates recorded over this half term is higher than normal and this is something we would like to address.

Registration is taken promptly at 8.55am and, from there, children move quickly into whole school assembly or begin work. A pupil arriving late to school is disprutive to their class - children also generally hate coming into school after all of their friends are settled and have started their day. 

Thank you in advance of your cooperation and support with this.  

Reminder: FOGS AGM - Tuesday 9th November At 7pm In school
