Inspire Dear Parents/Carers
Thank you for all the support you gave us this week in attending our Parents Evenings. We had the
biggest turn out, EVER!
It is so important that you are with us to support your children. Staff were kept busy but are
thankful for your engagement and commitment. It was great to see so many children here too. We
hope that by joining us for Parents Evening you as parents feel valued and respected when you
come to our school. We hope too, that you feel involved in your children’s learning and
development. We are pleased that many parents felt that they could use the experience to be able
to share information about their children because it helps us enormously to understand better the
children and families in our setting and use this information to make learning more enjoyable and
rewarding for all children.
Having chatted to some of the children who attended the evenings, they say they like to be involved
and feel like they are more clear about the expectations on them.
On another note this week has seen an assembly on T4U Christmas boxes. One of our children has
two wonderful Grandparents who lead an initiative to create Christmas boxes using a show box. If
you would like to be involved this year then please see the information further in the Bulletin. The
date for the boxes filled with gifts, to be brought to school is Monday 14th November, so you have
plenty of time over half term to collect gifts to pack up! It is a wonderful initiative and we are going
to make up some boxes as a school to so see the list of things you can send in if you want to
contribute, if you can 't manage a whole box. All donations gladly received.
Thanks again, for all you do, to help make this school great :-)
