7th September 2018

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

Welcome back to the start of a new school year and I hope you all enjoyed the amazingly good weather throughout the summer holidays.

We welcome a new member of staff to our team as Mr Robinson joins our KS1 team.  We also welcome Mrs Clark to her new role as Deputy Headteacher.

Our other new additions have been the 5 ducklings that Year One children incubated in the summer term.  They are now fully grown runner ducks and are enjoying life in their new house.  We look forward to using the duck eggs in our cookery classes in the near future!

The children have all settled well into the new term and are enthusiastically enjoying their new classes.

Arrival at School

Please ensure that we keep all our children safe by parking safely at the beginning and the end of the school day.

If your child is absent please telephone the school office on each day of absence to advise office staff.  We are required to register children as ‘missing from education’ if we do not have contact from yourselves when a child is absent from school.

Family Learning

Family Learning has become so popular that we will be offering two alternative sessions this year.

The sessions will be 9am – 11am every Tuesday and every Friday.  Family Learning is a time to enjoy light refreshments, have an opportunity to meet with other parents and have a chance to work alongside your own child.  Miss Hiley, Mrs Keary and Mrs Wilson will lead our sessions this year and as always a crèche is available.  Sessions commence Tuesday 11th September and Friday 14th September.

Music

Within our ‘Creative Curriculum’ we will build on the success of our Year 2 Opera last year, as this year we will be using our musical/drama talents to create a KS1 ‘Creative Jigsaw’ production based on our town of Filey.  Music, dance, drama, poetry, song and art will culminate in an exciting production.

Sponsored Walk

Our Annual Sponsored Walk along Filey Beach will be held on Friday 28th September at 1pm.  We hope to see you joining us on this family occasion.

Uniform

Uniform is available through Price & Buckland at www.pbparentsonline.co.uk/fileyschool online or Identity on (01723) 513703.  Please ensure all items of uniform are named including PE kits and coats.
