Newsletter Friday 19th October

Dear Parents/Carers,

On Monday, we had our school photographer in for indiviual and sibling photographs. Thank you to Mrs Biddle for organising this and you will receive your child’s proof shortly. Please be advised that this year, orders will be sent directly to the photo company and not to school.

Thank you to all parents, carers and governors for attending our Autumn term Open Evening on Wednesday. I am sure you will all agree that the displays around school as well as the children’s learning in books and journals looked simply fantastic – so much has been achieved in this first half term! Futhermore, it was lovely to see so many happy and excited children eager to share their learning with their adults. If you were unable to attend on Wednesday, please visit our school Facebook page where there is a selection of photos showcasing the displays around school. A BIG thank you to all members of staff for their dedication and commitment to ensuring our school was ready for Open Evening, you continue to go above and beyond for our children and create such memorable opportunities for them.

On Thursday, we had our second parent workshop, this time we focussed on Knebworth School’s approach to dealing with bullying and developing resilience in our children. Thank you to those parents who attended; we had some really positive feedback on the day and we have attached the PowerPoint used to this week’s parentmail for those parents who could not attend. A phone contract was also mentioned on the day which we have attached to this weeks parentmail too. Please read and feel free to adapt and use for your own children when you allow them to have a mobile phone. Thank you to Rony Ford for taking the time out of her working day to deliver both sessions to our parents. The next parent workshop we will be offering is around the ‘Protective Behaviours’ language we use in school with our children and follows on from Thursday’s workshop – more details to follow!

Thank you to those children who have already brought in pennies for the FOKS Penny Wars. The jars are filling up nicely – keep them coming as the year group with the most will receive a games afternoon from FOKS!

Safeguarding our young children in school is paramount and is at the centre of all of our school policies and procedures. We do expect that all parents and carers work with us to help keep all of our children safe. If somebody other than yourself is picking up your child, then we do need to be informed before the end of the day. We will not be able to release your child to that adult without prior consent. We reiterate that this is to keep our children safe and we thank you for your understanding and co- operation with this matter.

Lastly, we look forward to seeing parents and carers at Parents Evening next week. Enjoy your weekend and the FOKS Quiz for those who are attending!

Kind regards,
Natasha Laskey and the School Leadership Team
