welcome back to everyone, it has been super to see all of you and your children again after the Summer break. I hope you all had a good Summer, what a shame that the weather has only just arrived.
You will see by the heading that I am Acting Head for a while longer. As soon as there is any news I will let you know. We continue to work with Shine Academies, we are all committed to improving the children’s learning and achievements.
I have been really pleased to see that the children have returned in their new uniforms: our uniform requirements are on the web but just in case; blue and white dresses, black/grey trousers and white/blue polo shirts (with or without our logo,)grey skirts or pinafores, navy blue sweatshirt or cardigan with or without our logo and black, flat shoes. Our PE uniform is very similar with black/navy shorts, white T shirt and/or black/navy jogging bottoms with trainers. Please let us know if you are finding it difficult to buy uniform, come and talk to us – we can help.
Our jewelry policy is also available on the web: earrings should be studs and removed for PE, no other jewelry but a watch, which is named, can be worn but your child will be responsible for it. The watch should not have the ability to send or receive messages.
I am very proud of our uniform and the children look extremely smart in it.
We pride ourselves in promoting a healthy lifestyle and eating healthily is part of our curriculum. We would really appreciate your help, if your child brings a snack to school it should be fruit, raisins, vegetables and/or a healthy bar. All of Beech, Elm and Chestnut classes have access to fruit at break times. Our school policy is for all children to have a water bottle in school with their name on it. They can refill with water throughout the day. Thank you for your support.
Two other reminders are as follows:
You should not drive into the car park unless you have a registered disability – there is a parking space for disabled drivers on site. The car park is extremely busy throughout the day with deliveries and staff coming to school and is not suitable for children to be walking across. Please drop off and collect your child via walking through the main gate.
I am extremely pleased to see more children cycling or using a scooter to get to and from school wearing their helmets. Once you and your child are at the outside school gate cycles and scooters should be pushed and parked in the designated cycle structures. We have a lot of adults and children and some very small children on our play-ground, cycling and scooting is dangerous on a crowded play-ground. I hope you can support us with this and everyone will be much safer.
Goodness, I seem to have had to add rather a lot of reminders but at least we will start as we mean to go on. If you have any questions or concerns, please ask – my door is open and the team at Crowmoor are willing to help. You can contact us/me in the usual way via a visit to the office, telephone or email.
I hope you have a super weekend, “Always Proud to be Crowmoor.”
P.S. Are there any of you with “green” fingers out there? We desperately need some help weeding The Late Queen’s Memorial Garden which is at the front of the school. There honestly are some beautiful roses, lavender and other plants in amongst Jack’s Beanstalk! Please let me know if you can help… Thank you.
