Banksmeadow PS Staff Bulletin

Term 1 Week 4 15th-19th February 2016


Hi everyone

I hope you all had a great weekend. Thank you to everyone for staying back for Parent-Teacher interviews last week - I know how exhausting the beginning of the year can be, particularly when you have the added stress of interviews and late finishes.

Some things to note for this week:

- All new timetables start this week. After countless editions and checks and changes, I think (hope) we should have timetables that work. I have attached the final copy of each relevant timetable to this email. Some only have minor changes, but please discard all old ones and replace them with these. These are also hanging in the staffroom.

- On Tuesday afternoon I will be delivering the first part of the mandatory Child Protection update. It is mandatory for all staff members to complete this update. If possible, can all staff be in attendance. If you are unable to attend for any reason, please let me know.

- Matt Thistlethwaite has informed me that he will be standing outside the school on Monday morning to meet the community and promote his new education policy.
