Today the pupils, parents and staff here at Crabtree Farm Primary School got behind Macmillan Cancer Support's annual Coffee Morning and managed to raise an impressive £1208.83 for this good cause.
We'd like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported today's fundraising event. We wouldn't have been able to raise this incredible amount of money if it wasn't for those of you who baked a cake, joined us for a coffee or wore non-uniform. You should all feel very proud of yourselves!
I understand that there was an issue yesterday with children being late back from swimming. Pool times and transport are arranged by Nottingham City Council.
The classes swim at alternate times in the week to share the burden of children arriving back to school at the end of the day. Sometimes, circumstances with the pool, buses and/or traffic can make children later than planned. It is not something the school is happy with and the providers have been contacted.
I would ask that parents be patient and trust the school to try and solve these issues as they arise. I also ask parents not to vent their frustrations on the staff. The teachers are there to support your child/ren and will inform me of any issues.
At Crabtree Farm Primary School, the safety of your children is of paramount importance to us. With this in mind we would like to clarify our policy on collecting children from school at the end of the day.
All Early Years and Year 1, 2 and 3 children are to be collected from their classrooms by an adult over the age of 16. If it is someone other than a parent then the child’s class teacher should be informed either in person or via a telephone call.
Many children in Years 4, 5 and 6 already walk themselves home, or meet parents en route. If you wish your child walk home themselves then please complete this form and give to their class teacher.
Welcome back to a new academic year at Crabtree Farm Primary School. We hope you are all as excited as we are for what we hope will be another action packed year ahead.
Tomorrow, Wednesday 4th September, we will be holding a parents and carers meeting at 5pm for those withchildren in Year 2 to Year 6 (those in Early Years and Year 1 already had these meetings back in July with Mrs Round).
The meetings will begin in the main hall for a brief presentation about school life and expectations. Then you will have the opportunity to visit your child's class and find out more information about what they will be learning throughout the school year, classroom systems and trips/residentials.
We would appreciate if you could make this meeting a priority as a lot of information will be given which will help you support your child/ren throughout the school year.
