Dear Parents and Carers,

Firstly I’d like to wish you all a good half term break-lets hope this lovely weather continues so we can make the most of it during the break. Next half term promises to be very busy with lots of end of term activities planned-I have listed key dates below so parents/carers who need to can make the necessary arrangements in plenty of time.
We look forward to seeing you all on Monday 4th June. Doors open for breakfast club at 7.45 am and 8.30 am for all other pupils.

Summer Sun
It is wonderful that we are experiencing this lovely weather, let’s hope that it continues after the half term break. I would like to ask all parents to ensure that children have sun protection applied before they arrive at school. . It is also recommended that children wear caps/hats into school to wear during outdoor times. We will ensure that pupils have access to plenty of water throughout the day to keep them fully hydrated.

Havering Catering Services
Week beginning Monday 4th June is week 1 on the Havering catering services menu. All meals are served with unlimited salad and vegetables and cost £2.20.

Don’t Forget About Veggie Run ...
What is the aim?
The app aims to create healthy competition amongst primary and Junior school children, where they learn to dodge unhealthy foods and get rewarded by collecting fruit and vegetables.
Why get the App?
The main advantage for pupils downloading and playing this app, is that pupils can win your school sports prizes!! These prizes are worth up to £200! Each school will receive a unique reference code that they share with pupils, who use this when they login to the game.
Where do I get the App?
Broadford school code - 2659
Why do we need to promote Healthy Lunches?
Recent evidence suggests that only 1% of packed lunches are healthy!
We hope from children playing the game they are able to identify the difference between healthy and unhealthy foods.

Weekly Attendance
KS: 95.38%          KS2: 98.00% Overall: 97%  
Congratulations to Redwood, Larch, Hazel and Mulberry who all achieved 100% attendance and who top the attendance table this week.  I am absolutely thrilled that our attendance % has risen above our target for the first time this half term. Thank you all for your efforts and remembering your number 1 job of coming to school every day on time.
