Saxton Newsletter 15.7.22


You should receive your child’s report by email today – if you have not done so please contact the office.

We hope that this provides a useful reflection on their learning this year and prepares them for next year.

Staff Shout Outs

We hope that you feel your child has had a successful year in their current class. Staff have worked extremely hard to make sure that this is the case for everyone. If you could find a minute to send just one member of staff a message acknowledging their efforts during this academic year, I know it would make their day. You can do this personally or through our staff shout outs.

Weather Forecast

We are preparing for a heat wave next week. To help children to keep cool, we will allow them to come to school in their PE kits if this is cooler than their normal uniform. They should also have sun cream on and have a hat and water at all times. We will adjust our timings and activities during the day in line with the weather.

Welcome Mrs Dearden

We would like to extend a warm welcome Mrs Dearden who has joined us this week, working in Sycamore.

School Lunches

Please see the Summer 2022 Lunch menu below. Next week we will be on Week 3 of lunches.

The Leavers Lunch menu will be held on Friday 22nd October.

Children can decide daily whether they are having a school dinner or packed lunch.

Please ensure you discuss the menu each day with your child so they can decide what they would like to order. Once they know their choices, they will choose this each morning with their teacher during registration.

Each day there are 4 choices, either the hot dinner, hot vegetarian option, jacket potato with a choice of toppings or a sandwich. The sandwich and jacket potato always come with a selection of vegetables/salad on the side and have the full pudding choice for that day.

Packed Lunches - if you are sending grapes in your child's packed lunch, can you please ensure that these are cut in half.

Summer 2022 Lunch Menu

From w/c 25th April - w/c 18th July 2022. This is our new menu for the Summer Term

Parent Volunteers

We are delighted to be able to have volunteers into schools again, and would welcome parents to help us. If you are able to give any time to us, either on an ad-hoc or regular basis, you will need to complete a DBS application. Please contact the office for more information.

Application for Pupil Absence Form

This form should be completed by the parent/carer and returned to the school as far in advance as possible and preferably preferably with sufficient notice before the first intended day of absence.
