Newsletter - Wednesday 19th December, 2018

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 
Dear Parents and Carers,

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
Whether it’s the best of times or the worst of times, it’s the only time we’ve got.
Art Buchwald

In this final newsletter of the year, I would like to thank you all for the support you have shown the school over the last 12 months. Our school has weathered many different types of storms, but we have never been stronger. This is the only time we’ve got so we absolutely cannot waste a minute of it. At this time Broadford staff are doing everything they possibly can to continue to make our families proud of this school.  We are in the midst of another extremely successful year, securing a GOOD Ofsted judgement, educating our pupils and providing them with the best possible experiences that we can.
At this time our pupils, your children, recognise that their success is not an entitlement, but something that they need to earn, and they do earn their success each and every day. Our pupils make us proud with their academic success, sporting achievements and Christmas performances.
This is the only time we’ve got so let’s enjoy it and make the most of it. This is the only time we’ve got so let’s focus on the positives and let them inspire us further. This is the only time we’ve got and 2019 is a new start for us all. I could not be more excited about what’s in store for next year, and for the opportunity to work with pupils, staff and parents to make it all happen in 2019.
Thank you for all of the cards and gifts that have been given to staff. On behalf of them I would like to thank you for your kindness and generosity. I would like to wish you and your families all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Thank you!
Your generous donations in the Christmas Bucket – at the end of each performance last week – have raised £412  we have made a donation in aid of Save the Children for our Christmas jumper day. Thank you.

The letter and request form for Spring term clubs is available via the school blog and facebook page, applications close on January 4th at 12 pm. Mrs Chance and Mrs Charlesworth will be organising the club registers as soon as we return from the break.

Attendance News!
I am delighted to announce the winners of the attendance league for the Autumn term - Pine class! They enjoyed their reward at Jump Evolution on Monday, congratulations to all of the pupils in Pine who have remembered their number one job of coming to school every day. I am thrilled to announce that the overall attendance for this term is 96%. I sincerely hope that we can continue this percentage of attendance way into the Spring term and beyond to keep up our target of 96% right to the end of the year. Well done to everyone.
Job number 1 - Be ready and come to school everyday on time!

Mrs Caccavale is Retiring!
Today is a very sad day as we are saying farewell to Mrs Caccavale. Mrs Caccavale has been an outstanding teacher at Broadford for the last 30 years, teaching well over 1000 pupils during her time. I am sure that you will join with us in wishing her well for a happy and healthy retirement.

First Day of 2019
We are looking forward to seeing all children back at school in January 2019. There are no clubs at the beginning of term, so all pupils should be picked up promptly by 3.00pm. School opens again on the Tuesday 8th January – Breakfast Club at 7.45am – with the doors opening at 8.30am for all other pupils.

Havering Catering Services
Week beginning Monday 7th January  is week 3 on the Havering catering services menu. All meals are served with unlimited salad and vegetables and cost £2.20. School meals are free to our KS1/EYFS pupils.

Wishing you all a very peaceful and restful Christmas and a Happy New Year. Eat, drink be merry and make the most of the quality time with your families. We look forward to seeing you in 2019.

Yours sincerely,
Mrs L Nicholls
