Posted Monday 8th September: PROVISION OF SPECIAL DIETS
Now that more children are enjoying a school meal provided by GSS at school it is vital that we have a procedure in place to identify those children with special dietry requirements. If your child(ren) have a school meal please read the attached dietry requirements letter and, if a special diet is required, please fill in the attached special diet request form. These forms are also available on the school dinners page.
Posted Monday 8th September: CLUBS
The list of after school clubs is now available on the Clubs page. Please send a letter to the relevant teacher if your child is interested in attending a particular club. Please note that on the Autumn newsletter, a greengang club run by Mrs Cullinane was due to run on Wednesdays. This club has now been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances. Many apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Posted Friday 5th September: PE & SWIMMING KITS
This term we are asking all children to keep all kit in their PE bags on their pegs and to take home any wet or dirty kit or trainers each night, bringing them back clean and dry the next day they are needed. For some children, particularly those who do lunchtime as well as after-school sports clubs, this will involve more carrying things backwards and forwards, but we hope it will result in better care of kit and a tidier school. To see when your child will need their PE or swimming kit in school please check here.
Posted Tuesday 26th August: CHRISTMAS PANTOMIME
This is just a reminder that we will be going to see 'Aladdin' at the Marlowe Threatre, Canterbury this year for our annual pantomime visit so please bear this in mind when booking your family days out!
(You can see more of our amazing school and work in the 'Picture Galleries' link of the left.)
Our last OfSTED inspection was in March 2011.
The OfSTED report stated that we are 'good school', we have 'high standards of behaviour' and commended us on our 'caring family atmosphere'. The report also stated 'children make a good start in the Early Years Foundation Stage. They enter Year 1 with better than expected levels of attainment. In Years 1 to 6, this good start is fostered well by generally good levels of teaching so that by the time they leave, pupils' attainment is above average and their progress is good.'
No wonder we are so proud of our school!
