PARENT ATTITUDE QUESTIONNAIRE RESPONSE.

Comment 12

‘Use of electronic payment methods for lunches and trips, e.g. use of parent pay’

Response

This is something that we have already looked into as a school. As you will be aware, we moved our text messaging service across to Parent Mail last year and now that parents have signed up to this we will be moving to using it for sending out newsletters next year. Mrs. Vost will be trialling this with one class in the Summer term to ensure that it works successfully before rolling it out across the whole school in the new academic year.

Once this form of electronic communication is in place we will be looking to implement electronic payments. This is likely to be in the academic year 2016/17 as we will need to ensure that all the systems are in place for this to run smoothly.

 

TAG RUGBY

All the children that applied have got a place however we still have four places left if anyone is interested. Please contact Mrs Vost to add your child to the list.

 

Y6 BOREATTON PARK

The next payment of £60 is due by Friday 27th February for the Year 6 children who are going to Boreatton Park in June. Please make cheques payable to LCC.

BEFORE THE SCHOOL DAY

For Health & Safety reasons please can we ask all parents / carers to ensure their child waits outside the classroom or in the playground area supervised before the school day commences and not run around the football field or in the bark area. Many thanks for your support!

 

SCHOOL UNIFORM

It has been noticed that some pupils have been wearing black boots as part of their school uniform instead of black shoes. In line with our school uniform policy, I would like to see all pupils wearing black shoes after the February half term holiday. If your child requires boots for any medical reason then please ensure that their teacher or Mrs Vost is informed.

 

PTFA ZUMBATHON

Thank you to everyone who came along and took part in this event on Friday. We all had a great time and managed to raise over £300 towards PTFA funds. Please can all sponsor forms and money be brought into school by Friday 27th February.
