Latest Parent’s Newsletter | November 2018

Dear Parent/Carer,

Lining Up in the Morning
On particularly cold mornings, when there is a frost on the top playground surface, pupils will need to remain on the bottom yard. On the whistle, they should line up where their class lines up during a fire drill, ready to come into school.

New School Jumpers
Our new school jumpers will be available after Christmas with the new school badge, from the school office or the Wirral Uniform Shop. There are no plans to change any other aspects of the school uniform and current jumpers can continue to be worn until they are ‘worn out’. This is to ensure that no parent/carer will be put at any financial disadvantage.

As I informed you in July, I intend to use some of the pupil premium funding to purchase a school jumper for all pupil premium pupils. The current plan is to make this available with the new badge from January 2019. If you need to find out if your child is entitled to pupil premium, please check with the school office.

Many thanks to all those parents of pupils in F1 & F2 who have been logging onto ‘Tapestry’ to share in their child’s progress in school. If you have not had chance yet or would like further information, please contact the class teacher (Mrs Beedles/Mrs McMahon). Tapestry can now be accessed via our new website.

Children in Need
A huge thank you for your support with this years ‘Children in Need’ day. The pupils raised £672.80, which is a fantastic amount!

‘Anti-Bullying’ Week
We recently held an ‘Anti-Bullying’ week in school, with pupils involved in a wide range of activities, assemblies, presentations and discussions. All pupils responded extremely well, with some even attending a conference at a local high school. One of the outcomes of the week will be leaflets offering advice for pupils (created by Year 6) and parents (created by a group of our parents) which will be shared with you when they are completed.

Dixie Dean Plaque
As some of you may be aware Dixie Dean went to our school. To commemorate this, the Everton Heritage Society is putting up a plaque at school on:

Tuesday 4th December at 2pm.

Should any parents wish to attend, you would be very welcome and I believe Graeme Sharp will be present, for those Evertonians (like me) who remember him!

Yours sincerely,

Mr P Crossley
