This week has been filled with adventure! Year 2 ventured into the woods all day on Tuesday. When I visited them, they had finished with den-building and Matron was leading them through a first aid course. The sight which greeted me was one of great injury with arms in slings and bandaged heads; thank goodness this was all role-play! Reception enjoyed a Science Day, where the children gleefully told me that they looked at things through microscopes and ‘discovered’. Dr Evans organised a super day for everyone and my thanks to the team for this wonderful experience for the children. I enjoyed watching some cracking netball matches on Wednesday afternoon and it was lovely to see so much parent support. This is all part of what makes St Peter’s special.
We are always obliged to review attendance and have certain legal obligations regarding this. We are currently reviewing our attendance policy at St Peter’s and we are scrutinising the data and looking carefully at pupils whose attendance has dropped below 90%. I would like to take this opportunity to emphasise the importance of excellent attendance and the connection between this and your child realising their potential both academically and socially. Please see in the newsletter under general information some reminders on attendance.
Charity Ball tickets have gone on sale this week. It is going to be a wonderful event, so please do come along. We are happy for you to sort tables with friends from within or outside of school and, equally, we can help by putting tables together if necessary. We have had confirmation that the Royal Marines’ Brass Ensemble is playing early in the evening, and ‘Not the Cowboys’ are the after-dinner entertainment to get people up and dancing. It promises to be a fantastic evening!
Enjoy the weekend; only one more week to half-term.
