Weekly Newsletters - Friday 14th September, 2018

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Reception & Nursery
It is really pleasing to see how well our reception children have settled in during 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 attended their 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 dates 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.

After School Clubs
It is that time again to consider which clubs you will be interested in ready for the new school term. We shall be continuing to offer a variety of clubs. Please follow the link to apply for your child’s after school clubs.
Ensure that you have completed one form per child by Friday 21st September.

School Nurse Sessions
Cathy Forrester, our school nurse, will be available every month should you wish to ask her any questions or seek health advice on the following dates;
18th September, 9th October, 20th November, 11th December, 15th January, 19th February, 12th March, 9th April, 14th May, 11th June, 9th July.  
Cathy will be in school on Tuesday 18th September at 8.30 am. If you need to speak with her drop into the school office.

Havering Catering Services
Week beginning Monday 18th September is week 1 on the Havering catering services menu. All meals are served with unlimited salad and vegetables and cost £2.20.

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,
Speak to Mrs Taylor at the school office for more information regarding eligibility for free school meals.

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 who 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!
