Welcome Back!

This week we have been talking about our core values with your children in assemblies and in class.

These are: COMMUNITY, RESPECT, SELF BELIEF and INNOVATION. We have also talked about expectations for behaviour in and around the school. Ask your child to tell you about this and help us to help them to make right choices.

Please take time to read this newsletter as it contains some important reminders and information.Teachers are looking forward to seeing you at the year group curriculum meetings over the next few weeks (dates opposite) and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

We are all looking forward to another successful year at Welbourne!                              

Ms Duggal

Eid Mubarak to our families and friends celebrating this week!

Home time arrangements

Year 5 and 6: If your child is in Y5 or Y6 they can walk home alone from school providing you have signed the correct permission slip. However, if we discover that a child behaves inappropriately or unsafely on the way home you will be notified and permission to walk home alone may be withdrawn. Children in Y5 and Y6 will not be permitted to collect younger siblings in the school.
Years 1 to 6: If an adult (over the age of 18) is not able to collect your child every day, you must inform Ms Hussein or Ms Guerreiro in the school office.
Nursery and Reception: Children in Nursery and Reception must be collected by a responsible adult that is known to the staff. If there is a change of adult you must let the school know. In the interest of keeping our children safe please note that sometimes there may be a delay in releasing a child from class whilst we make sure the adult is who they say they are.
Thank you for your cooperation and support.
Birthdays in School 

This year birthdays will be celebrated in school assemblies each week. Therefore, parents should not send party bags or food in to school for their child's birthday. 

Absence Text Messages

You can now send texts to notify us of your child's absence. Just text your child's name, class and the reason for their absence to 07860030526
Flu Immunisation 

The school nursing service will be offering flu vaccinations in our school to all children in years 1, 2 and 3.

This will be from October 2016 until December 2016, as this is before influenza tends to circulate.

Information, contact details and consent forms will be sent out this month. Your child will not be vaccinated without your consent. In the meantime if you require further information please contact your school nurse, GP or practice nurse
