Year 5 to go swimming at the Olympic Pool: 7th-17th May 2019
A real highlight of Year 5 is going swimming in the Olympic swimming pool. Not many of us are lucky enough to learn to swim where gold medals have been won. If you haven't done so already, please sign up your child for Year 5 swimming on Parent Mail. If you are not on Parent Mail or do not know how to register for the swimming, please talk to someone at the front desk, where they will be pleased to help you.
Parents’ Evening follow up
Thank you to all of you who came to Parents’ Evening to meet with the teacher. We hope you now better understand how your child is doing. If you were unable to come, please either speak to your teacher or leave a message at the front desk and we will try to arrange a meeting with you.
Year 6 Easter School
A reminder that Easter School will be taking place from 8th to 10th April. Children need to be in school by 9am and the day will end at 2:30pm. Please make sure children bring some lunch.
You may have heard about, or even attended, our now legendary music days. Well this year we are raising the stakes - a whole MUSIC WEEK (well, 4 days but who’s counting?). During the first week back after the Easter break, children will be taking part in workshops and music lessons, culminating in an epic concert on Friday 26th April. Parents are invited to attend - choir club and some of our ECaM pupils will be contributing to the event so it’s definitely one to get in the diary!
9.50 - 10.30am Performance: Reception, Y1, Y3 and Y5 parents welcome
11.00 - 11.40am Performance: Y2, Y4 and Y6 parents welcome
We are here for you
At Sheringham, we greatly value the community we are in and feel strongly about our responsibility to provide support for those within it. Therefore, we would like to remind you that staff are available and willing to talk confidentially about anything that is concerning you - from your child’s learning to housing problems or for details of a food bank. Members of the Social Inclusion Team and Leadership Team are on the playground before and after school every day, so please don’t hesitate to talk to us.
Keeping your child safe online
Many of us will feel that our children know more about the internet and the latest app or computer game than we do. We often get asked for suggestions on how to control children’s use of the internet. We suggest you go to the NSPCC’s help page which has some very useful tips - you can use this link: http://bit.ly/spsparentcontrols
We have some excellent news about school attendance. Last week was the best week so far this year with attendance at 96.9% for the week. Let’s keep it that way because...
Great attendance leads to great learning!
