Weekly Newsletter - Friday 29th March, 2018

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

End of Spring Term
We have arrived at the end of another successful term at Broadford Primary. There is much to celebrate with regard to academic progress, which is due to the hard work of our fantastic pupils.
For example, the University of Broadford, quizzes, maths competitions and sporting achievements there is so much to be proud of. The spring term is short. But, I have come to realise that we achieve just as much, but in less time.
Thank you to all of the parents who attended our University of Broadford graduation events this week and staff were very pleased to meet with you at our parents’ evenings. These events support the partnership between school and home, which we all value and recognise the strong support system this provides for your children.
I hope that you all have a restful break and enjoy quality time with families and friends. I look forward to welcoming your children back to school on Monday 16th April.

Diary Dates
The Summer term is going to be just as busy as the Spring term has been.
On Tuesday 17th April, the spinebreakers are going to Vue cinema to watch Peter Rabbit. Cathy Forrester our school nurse will be available from 8.30 am, she will be at the school office. Please feel free to pop in if you have any questions at all.
On Thursday 19th we have an author visiting school. Sibel Beadle is the author of Witchy Travel Tales bedtime stories and will be working with the children on their writing skills. Staff from Jump Evolution will be coming in during assembly to educate the pupils on exercise and healthy living.
What a great start to the summer term.  

Havering Catering Services
Week beginning Monday 16th April is week 3 on the Havering catering services menu. All meals are served with unlimited salad and vegetables and cost £2.20.

After School Clubs
Applications for Summer term clubs are open, please follow the link below to submit a request for an after school club by Friday 13th April.

Congratulations - Miss Connell is getting married!
I am sure you will all join me in wishing Miss Connell and her fiance all the best for their upcoming wedding. We hope that they both enjoy their  wonderful wedding day and a very happy life together. Miss Connell will return to school after the break as Mrs Cocks.

We say goodbye to a few members of staff today. Mr White (year 3 teacher) who is moving to a local school to take up a year group leader position. Mrs Smith (year 1 TA) who is going to focus on her growing dance school and Mrs Wright (year 2 TA) who is moving to another school to work as a support an individual child.
We thank all of them for everything that they have given to enrich the lives of our Broadford pupils and wish the the best for their new ventures.

Start of  Summer Term
We return to school for the summer term on Monday 16th April with breakfast club starting at at 7.45 am and for all other pupils the doors will be open at 8.30 am.

Weekly Attendance:

Congratulations to  Sequoia and Birch who top the attendance table this week. It is still disappointing to see that we have not yet reached our target of 96%. When we return for the summer term of the year we must all remember our number 1 job of coming to school every day on time.
