FORTNIGHTLY NEWSLETTER ISSUE 9: 26.1.18
Miss Sabin is visiting Class Two over the next few weeks leading up to her return on Thursday 15th March. We are looking forward to her return following her maternity leave.
Sports Hall Athletics
A squad of 18 year 5 and year 6 children represented Clavering at the Family Sports Hall Athletics tournament at JFAN on Wednesday. The children took part in a number of track and field events and performed very well, being narrowly beaten into second place by Great Chesterford. The children are to be commended for their excellent team spirit and behaviour at the event. Well done!
Mad Hair Day Friday
On Friday 26th January – School Council organised Mad Hair day to raise money to buy some new lunchtime play equipment. Everyone looked very interesting! So far, we have raised £268. Next week School Council will be meeting with Mrs Hall and choosing lots of new equipment. Thank you for your support.
Footwear and Hair
In the interest of safety, as well as appearance, pupils should wear suitable footwear for school. Shoes should fasten securely and be plain black and low heeled with enclosed toes. Boots, sandals, sling backs and trainers are not appropriate for school. Trainers can be worn for PE.
Please can we avoid children having decorative haircuts and/or hair colouring during term time.
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.
In the event of severe weather conditions and possible school closure a notice will be placed on the school website.
Parents will be notified via our school website or the Essex County Council on the ‘Emergency School Closures’ page: https://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.
School starts at 8.50 a.m. We have noticed several children that are consistently arriving late for school – ‘late’ is defined by not being within the school gates by 8.50 a.m. Please make every effort to be at school on time and if you know that your journey will be disrupted by road works, do allow time for this. Thank you.
