Friends of Clavering
The Friends of Clavering have been very busy organising events for Christmas. The Christmas Fayre is taking place today and on Monday 15th December there will be the Christmas Shopping morning for the children.
Parent Consultations and Tray Day
Parent Consultations took place last week and Tray Day yesterday. Thank you to all the parents for attending. We hope you found the occasions informative and that you enjoyed looking at your child’s work and classroom displays during Tray Day.
A large amount of lost property is collecting. If your child has lost any clothing please could you have a look through the collection to see if any of it belongs to you. It will be displayed in the main entrance Monday to Wednesday of next week (8th – 10th December). After this time it will need to be re-cycled.
In the event of severe weather conditions and possible school closure a notice will be placed on the school website.
This year BBC Essex and Heart FM will not be announcing or publicising via websites. Parents will be notified via our new school website or the Essex County Council on the ‘Emergency School Closures’ page: http://www.essex.gov.uk/Education-Schools/Schools/Dates/Pages/Emergency-School-Closures.aspx.
Please note that when the school is open in bad weather a path will be cleared to enable you to gain access to the school but care does still need to be taken.
It’s getting to that time of year again – if you would like to volunteer your services to help Mr Docking to clear the school grounds in the event of snow, please let the office know so that we can compile a list of names. We are very grateful for any offers of help, so that school can, where possible, remain open.
