Lent

There is an 8.30am Mass in school every Wednesday in Lent and all are welcome.

 

Safe Collection Password

To keep children safe, school will not release children to adults who are not parents without the password that parents have supplied to school.  Please do not put school in the awkward position of other adults picking children up without them knowing the password.

 

Punctuality

The school doors open at 8:50am and are closed at 9am. Children arriving after this time will receive a late mark and will miss essential learning. Please ensure children are in school on time.

If you are 5 minutes late every day that adds up to over 3 days lost each year.  15 minutes late is the same as    being absent for 2 weeks a year.

Persistent late arrival at school may lead to a penalty notice being issued.

School finishes at 3pm – please ensure that children are collected on time.  

 

Top Tips To Arrive At School On Time:

1. Lay out school clothes the night before

2. Keep shoes in one place.

3. Ensure children get to bed on time and set alarm.

4. Allow for traffic.

5. Keep breakfast simple or attend Magic Breakfast Club.

 

Magic Breakfast

School is open for free breakfast for all children Mon, Tue, Wed and Fri –

doors open 8:30 – 8:40am.

For the next 4 Wednesdays during Lent, Magic Breakfast will be served from 8:15 – 8:25am.

 

School Uniform

Please remember that each child should come to school with their green bag - other bags are too big for the cloakrooms!

Please also ensure your child has the following:

Homework diary

Guided reading book

Library book

PE kit

Thank you.

 

Robinwood 2019

Reminder to parents of Y5 children that the Robinwood trip is on Sims Agora and a small amount can be paid weekly.

 

Car Park

Please can we remind parents that the school car park is for staff and deliveries only. Parents are asked not to walk through the car park with children as this is a health and safety risk.

 

Fruit Club

Fruit club is available to all KS2 children for £1 per week. This MUST be paid on a Monday morning to their class teacher and children tick their name on the sheet. Money cannot be accepted later in the week as the kitchen needs to know numbers on Monday morning. Thank you.

 

Reminder – The deadline for returning St. Joseph’s Penny boxes is now  Wednesday 10th April.

 

Children’s Prayers

Dear God, I promise to always open my heart and mind to Jesus. I will listen to what he says and try to be the person I can. Amen – Zunairah Y2

 

Dear God, We pray that we would not only give things up for Lent but that we give you glory through Lent.

Amen – Aleczander Y2

 

Dear God, Give me the strength to make sacrifices during

Lent and think about how Jesus felt during this time.

Amen – Amber Rose Y2

 

Dear God, Thank you for sending your son to guide and protect us.

We speak to Jesus every day and know he is always with us.

Amen – Rida Y2

 

Ofsted

Thank you to all our children, parents and staff for all their huge efforts during our Ofsted inspection - we were graded "Good"!! The full report is on our school website and a copy has been sent home tonight.

 

Facebook and other Social Media

Online Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at St Anne’s. We can only be successful in keeping all of our children safe online if we work with you to ensure that online safety messages are consistent and that all members of the community behave safely and appropriately online.

 

Unfortunately it has been brought to our attention that some parents/carers have been using Facebook and WhatsApp forums to complain and/or be abusive about the school, members of staff and other parents who are part of the school community. Whilst we are all entitled to have our own views and opinions, we would like to ask that all members of our community consider how this may be misunderstood or misinterpreted when shared online and the possible impact and consequences of these actions.

 

Fortunately, these occurrences are few and far between at St Anne’s. Whilst we can continue to raise the profile of online safety within school, we need the help of the whole community to support us in keeping our wider community safe online.

 

It is important that all members of our school community understand that the use of technology (including social networking, mobile phones, games consoles and other websites) to deliberately threaten, upset, harass, intimidate or embarrass someone else could be considered to be cyberbullying or harassment. Cyberbullying is just as harmful as bullying in the real world and is not tolerated at St Anne’s. We take all instances of cyberbullying or harassment involving any members of our community very seriously as we want members of the community to feel safe and happy both on and offline. Posting threatening, obscene or offensive comments online can also potentially be considered as a criminal offence and can therefore have serious consequences.

 

Any complaints regarding the school should be made using the correct and official channels so we can work together to help resolve any concerns that parents/carers may have. The complaints procedure and anti-bullying policy and other relevant policies (such as behaviour or child protection policies) are available online via the school website.

 

I would like to ask all parents/carers and members of their families to think carefully about the information and comments they post online. As responsible adults it’s important that we all consider the potential impact and implications posting such content may have on you and your family as well as other members of the community. I would also like to remind all parents/carers about the need for us all to work in partnership to promote responsible internet use and also to highlight how important your role is in setting a good example of positive and responsible online behaviour for your child(ren).

 

Many thanks in advance for your support in this matter.

 

Parents Code of Conduct

 

St Anne’s RC Primary School has a code of conduct for parents. It says the purpose is:

To provide a reminder to all parents, carers and visitors to our school about the expected conduct so we can continue to flourish, progress and achieve in an atmosphere of mutual understanding.

 

The school expects parents and carers to:

Always respect the caring ethos of the school

Always understand that parents and teachers need to work together for the benefit of children

Always demonstrate in their own behaviour that all members of the school community should be treated with respect and understand that even if there is conflict due to a member of staff’s oversight, parents must remain calm and respectful

Always approach school staff to help resolve issues

Always work with the school to build relationships with its staff

Always know that children cannot be moved on request of the parent

Always seek to clarify a child’s version of events with the school’s view in order to bring about a peaceful solution to any issue

Always correct their own child’s behaviour, especially where it could lead to conflict

Always avoid using staff as threats to admonish children

 

In order to support a peaceful and safe school environment the school does not tolerate:

Disruptive behaviour which interferes or threatens to interfere with the operation of a classroom, office or other area of school grounds

Loud or offensive language, swearing, cursing or displaying temper

Threating to do actual bodily harm to a member of school staff, governor, visitor, parent/carer or pupil

Damaging or destroying school property

Sending abusive or threatening emails, text/voicemail/phone messages or other written communication

Defamatory, offensive or derogatory comments regarding the school or any of the pupils/parents/staff at the school on Facebook or other social media sites

The use of physical aggression towards another adult or child. This includes physically punishing your own child on school premises

Chastising someone else’s child

Smoking, or consuming alcohol or drugs whilst on school property

Bringing dogs on to school premises (other than guide dogs)

 

If any of these behaviours occur the school may contact the appropriate authorities including the Police and, if necessary, ban the offending adult from entering school grounds.

 

In short: Thank you for:

Respecting the school’s caring ethos.

Working with teachers for the benefit of children.

Always remaining calm and respectful.

Always resolving issues through school.

Always correcting your child’s behaviour when you need to.
