A special thank you to RAF Shawbury and the Defence Helicopter Flying School who visited us this week as part of their work with schools and communities across the region. The children were very excited about their visit and loved being able to see the helicopter land on the playground. Be assured that the RAF carried out thorough risk assessment and advised where it was safe to view the helicopter from. Children are now using this inspirational event as an opportunity to look at flight and transport.
We are delighted that many of you are taking the opportunity to share your child’s achievements through Seesaw and are able to comment about your child’s work using this app. Children really value your positive comments as do all the staff. If you have any concerns about your child please come and talk to us rather than using this app.
Parent consultation meetings will be held next week. Please take the opportunity to come in to talk to about your child’s progress and achievements. We look forward to seeing you.
KS1 (Reception, Year 1 & Year 2) parent meetings will take place on Monday 14th October (3.30pm – 5.30pm) and Tuesday, 15th October (2.00pm – 5.00pm).
KS2 (Years 3 – 6) parent meetings will take place on Monday 14th October (3.30pm – 5.30pm) and Thursday 17th October (2.00pm – 5.00pm).
Parents will be able to book their appointments via the school website School Website until Sunday 13th October.
If your child is poorly, please telephone the school on the first day of absence, giving a reason for the absence. This should be done for every school day they miss.
Parents are reminded that they should not park in the Doctor’s surgery car park or block the entrance while dropping children off. We have been advised by the Practice Manager that this is happening on a regular basis and that parents have been quite rude when approached by surgery staff about the issue.
Parents have also been seen parking and turning around in the car park of the houses on the corner of Dale End and Buildwas Road.
Parents are asked to park in Dale End or The Wharfage car parks and parking permits are available from Telford & Wrekin Council (Ph: 01952 384000) for morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up.
Children are expected to be dressed sensibly and smartly at school. We ask that children do not wear any jewellery (necklaces, bracelets, rings etc) to school apart from small, stud earrings.
We would also ask that children do not wear nail polish in school.
Could we please remind you that children should not bring toys/football cards/collectibles etc into school. These can be lost and can cause arguments between children.
We recognise that dogs are an important part of family life for many in the school community, and as such are often included in day‐to‐day activities such as walking children to and from school. However, others may find the presence of dogs in the playground and school grounds stressful, even frightening particularly with younger children, and even well‐behaved dogs can behave unpredictably when placed in a busy, noisy and crowded environment. Therefore school policy is that no dogs are allowed on school premises (either on a lead or carried). We would appreciate your co-operation by not bringing your pet to school.
Shropshire Athletics Association are currently half way through their Young Athletes Cross Country League and Daniel W and Olly B are representing the school. The first race was held at Lilleshall and Daniel W came 1st and Olly B 11th. The second race was in Shrewsbury and again Daniel W came first with Olly B climbing 5 places to come 6th.
Olly C and Ike are also running, representing their athletics clubs, with Olly C coming 2nd in both races and Ike coming 28th in the first race.
Good luck to all the boys for the final two races at Oswestry and Much Wenlock in November & December.
On Wednesday Brooke, Darcy, Amelie, Maisie, Ellie-Mae, Lexi-Lou, Isla & Daisy travelled to Redhill Primary for a tough game against an experienced Redhill team. Amelie and Maisie played up front, Darcy and Isla on the wing, Ellie and Daisy were midfield, Lexi-Lou and Brook played defence and we all took a turn in goal. It was a fantastic effort and determination from everyone – the girls never gave up, tackling hard and trying to score right until the final whistle. They gained lots of valuable experience but unfortunately there were no goals for Coalbrookdale.
