Weekly Newsletter
Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back. We hope you have all had a fantastic half term with your families. Luckily, we were blessed with wonderful weather over the break. We are now into the last half term of the year and, in my opinion, the most exciting! Enjoy all of the upcoming events this summer!
Year 5 Residential - Mersea Island
This week our year 5 pupils braved the weather at Mersea Island. Even though there were gale force winds and torrential rainfall they all had a wonderful time. Congratulations to each and everyone of you for carrying on despite the weather with a smile on your face. We know that some of you faced your fears during your time in Mersea but fear is nothing but an obstacle that stands in the way of progress. In overcoming your fears you all moved forward stronger and wiser and we are all very proud of you. A huge thank you to our amazing staff who encouraged and supported the pupils and kept them safe while they were away from their families.

Summer Sun
After the rainfall this week, I am hoping that we will start to experience some warmer weather soon. 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 bring 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. Thank you for your support and co-operation in this matter.

Havering Catering Services
Week beginning 12th June will be week 2 on the Havering catering menu.

Next week you will receive a letter informing you of your child’s sQuid registration number and details for setting up your account. School staff are receiving training in regards to the new system today so we will be able to give out further information next week. This new system will be going live from 21st June. From this date the school kitchen and office will be completely cashless.
