Wednesday 8th January 2014

Dear Parents and Friends,

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone connected with the school a very happy and prosperous 2014!  Many thanks for your generosity in the collections at the Christmas shows and Gift Boxes which were sent. A total of £752 was raised for the Shine charity!

Reception and P1 Starts for 2014/15

Please remember that application forms should be sent to Mrs Brown along with the child’s original birth certificate by no later than 12 noon on Friday 10th January 2014.

Pupil Details

In order to update our records, I would ask that all parents complete the reply slip at the end of this letter to inform us of pupils’ travel arrangements. I do appreciate that normal arrangements can change, but would ask that if this should happen, Dawn is informed in the school office on the day of any change. If a child attends 223 Club, he/she will go home as normally indicated. If a child attends Good News Club, he/she will go home by car. There is also an additional form to update us of any medical conditions your child has. Should there be any change in the future, please let us know. Please send both reply slips back by Friday 17th January 2014. If anyone’s contact numbers have changed, please give Dawn a note of the new number(s).

 Parent Governors

A short Parents’ Meeting to elect two Parent Governors to our reconstituted Board of Governors will take place on Monday 20th January 2014 at 5.00pm in the school Assembly Hall.

Term Datescalendar

Dunseverick Primary School will be used as a polling station on Thursday 22nd May 2014 which means school will be closed for pupils on this date. In light of this, the Exceptional Closure originally scheduled for Tuesday 27th May 2014 will now be taken on Friday 23rd May 2014 and the Bank Holiday remains on Monday 26th May 2014. Pupils will return to school on Tuesday 27th May 2014. Click here for the updated term dates.

 

223 Club

 

I would ask that any money for 223 Club is sent with your child on a Monday morning, with the days clearly noted on the yellow envelope. It would also be appreciated that any bookings are made by lunchtime on the day that your child is attending.

 

PE Kits

 

I would like to remind parents to send a full change of PE kit, including footwear, on the days P4-7 pupils are having PE in Afternoon Classes. P6 and P7 pupils are on a Monday afternoon, P5 pupils on a Tuesday afternoon and P4 on a Thursday afternoon.

School Items

 

It has come to my attention that some pupils’ personal belongings have been misplaced. Please ensure that all items are named belonging to your children, especially sweatshirts. It is also important that pupils bring enough pencils and rubbers that are required for the school day. Please ensure these items are named as well.

 

School Policies

 

School policies for Safeguarding (Child Protection) and Administration of Prescribed Medication have been updated and are available on the school website www.dunseverickprimaryschool.co.uk Should any parent wish to have a paper copy, please ask Dawn in the office.

 

P6 Transfer Information

 

P6 parents will find an advice booklet about Transfer along with today’s letter.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

M McCullough
