Newsletter - 4th September 2017

Please remember that all payments to school, such as school dinners or breakfast club, need to be done online.  Please speak with a member of the office staff if you need help with this. 

I would like to welcome Mr Joseph Harris and Miss Roisin Smiddy to the Nightingale team.  Mr Harris will be teaching year 2 and Miss Smiddy will be teaching in the nursery. 

Can you please ensure that your contact details are accurate.  If you have moved house or it you have a new phone number, please let the office staff know.

 We still have vacancies in our school nursery.  If you know of anyone looking for a nursery place, please ask them to contact the office.

It’s good to see all the children in their uniforms.  Please make sure that they are wearing the correct uniform for school.  All children need to wear darks trousers or skirt, white shirt and a red school jumper.  It is expected that children in year 4, 5 and 6 wear a school tie.  This should be worn with a school shirt, not a polo shirt.

Children also need to wear black school shoes.

Muslim girls should wear a black or grey hijab if they wish to.

Children should also have a white t-shirt and black shorts for PE.

Welcome back to another academic year at Nightingale.  I hope that you have had a good break and that, like me, you are looking forward to the challenges that this year will bring.

The whole staff have been very busy over the last two days making sure that the school is ready for children. 

Our main focus this year will be a smooth transition to academy status.  We are hopeful that this will happen on the 1st November 2017.

The staff are also focused on challenging all children to do more, to push themselves harder to make greater progress in their learning.  You can help us do this by making sure your child reads every night, practices their maths facts and learns their weekly spellings.
