Spring Term 2017 - Newsletter 1

20th January 2017

Dear parents/carers,


I had a very positive response from several parents to the recent email expressing concerns about potentially dangerous parking and driving. Parking near schools is a problem everywhere and is never going to be easy, but things do seem to have improved over the past week or so. Thank you.

Class Assemblies

These take place each term and are an opportunity for you to share in and celebrate children’s learning. We also use them as part of our aim to ‘build skills for life’ by giving all children regular practice in speaking in front of an audience from an early age. You are invited to join us at 9am on these dates:

Lime Class - 3rd March

Sycamore Class - 24th March

Chestnut Class - 24th February

Parents’ Evenings

A letter went home this week for parents to book a slot to meet with teachers’ about their child’s progress. We are very fortunate that we usually have 100% attendance from parents at these evenings.

Parents’ Session at Debenham High School

You will also have had information this week about the workshop on what parents can do to help support their child’s mental health. This takes place at the high school on 6th February, 7.00 - 8.30pm. Although this is aimed at the parents of teenage children and will therefore be particularly helpful for parents of children in years 5 and 6, parents of younger children may also find it helpful. If you would like to go, please let the high school know by emailing them at office@debenhamhigh.co.uk.
