Weekly Newsletter - Friday 15th September

Dear Parents and Carers,

Reception & Nursery
It is really pleasing to see how well our reception children have settled in their first week at Broadford. They are only attending for half a day these first 2 weeks -but so far so good! We hope that all pupils, parents and families feel very welcome here at Broadford.

Our nursery children have been to stay and play sessions where they have had the opportunity to get to know the practitioners in our nursery setting in preparation for their start in the near future. We are looking forward to them attending everyday very soon and we hope that they are looking forward to this as well.

Diary Dates
On Monday 18th September school is closed for pupils as it is an INSET day, except for Nursery pupils. We look forward to all of the children returning on school on Tuesday 19th at the normal time.
On Tuesday morning year 5&6 have a visit from Mr Bannister from Drapers’ Academy. In the afternoon our school council representatives will be visiting Drapers’ Brookside for a meeting with cluster schools.
On Wednesday 20th, year 3 pupils are visiting Wat Tyler Park and will enjoy a day of orienteering in the fresh air.
On Thursday 21st, year 6 are visiting Hampton Court Palace and indulging in a day of historical exploration.

School Dinners & sQuid
Please be reminded that KS2 pupils are not eligible for free school meals. When pupils move into year 3 you are required to pay for the children’s dinners unless you qualify for free school meals, in which case you need to put in an application to:
Student Finance, The Liberty Centre, Romford, RM1 3RL. Tele no. 01708 433929/53,
Broadford Primary School is now  a cashless school. All dinners, breakfast club and trips  need to be paid for through the sQuid system.
Parents/Carers should register, for each child and deposit the money to pay for  lunch and trips via the online system. Everyone must register for an account even if your child receives a free school meal. If you have difficulties setting up or accessing your account Mrs Taylor and Mrs West in the office are more than happy to help you.

Thank you for the effort you put into your children’s appearance these past two weeks. It is  wonderful sea of Broadford blue jumpers walking through the corridors everyday. All of the children seem to be walking that little bit taller and feeling very proud as they have started the new academic year. With the smart shoes, fabulous haircuts and bright smiles it has been a great start to the term!
