POINTS OF Dear All,
Thank you to our members of PPF who were able to join us for our meeting this
School Closed Monday. We talked about 'transition' particularly which is what we call the work
Monday 7th that we do to prepare Yr2 children joining us in September and those leaving us
May—Bank in July to begin their secondary career.
Holiday It was a really helpful meeting where we gathered lots of new ways to make
children feel ready to join and leave us! Something new for this year is that we are
NSPCC Non going to schedule a 'welcome' meeting in July for Year 3. Also children and parents
Uniform Day will be given a sort of pen portrait template to fill out so we know as much as we
Friday 18th possibly can about their children.
May & Royal
Like last year several visits will be made by myself and my team to the Infant Schools where the children
Wedding are coming from. I run assemblies and my team meet up with teachers from the Infant school to find out
celebrations about the children.
School Closed At the other end of the school, our 'outgoing' children get similar treatment in terms of us liaising closely
Friday 25th with our secondary colleagues. We meet with them throughout the term to make sure children feel as
May - inset ready as they can for September.
Have a lovely long weekend, I hear the weather is going to be great :-)
Blessings, Mrs Norton
