PARENT ATTITUDE QUESTIONNAIRE RESPONSE.

Comment 13

‘No family assembly each week – this would be nice to see’

Response

This is something that we have considered but had not introduced due to the fact that the hall is so small and it would be difficult to accommodate many parents in addition to the whole school. However, we agree that it would be great to have parents join in our celebration assemblies. We will therefore look to incorporate parents into celebration assembly from the start of next academic year by inviting the parents of super pupils to join us each week. It would not be fair to start this part way through the year so feel that the new academic year is a good time to start this. Please note that we will not have capacity to invite parents of all award winners each week as we do not have capacity in the hall.

 

Hi FIVES

There is no Hi Fives this week unless your child is taking part in the tournament at Holy Cross High School tomorrow. Only one game will be played at the tournament now so please pick up your child at 4.30pm.

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.

 

TRAFFIC AROUND SCHOOL

At Primrose Hill the safety of pupils is paramount and parents/carers play a huge role in helping with this issue.   A number of parents are driving very quickly to school, not indicating and turning round without due care or consideration. Please slow down and take care in order to keep pupils safe.

The two car parks are available for staff parking only. Please avoid parking in them to pick up or drop off your child at any time. Many thanks for your co-operation!
