Headteacher's message...
As the term draws to a close, I would like to thank parents, staff, governors and pupils for your hard work and support over the school year. It is teamwork that makes the school a happy, safe and successful place and I look forward to working with the community next year!
I would also like to take this opportunity to say farewell to staff members who are leaving us this year : Ms Gray, Ms Smyth, Ms Lazarides,  Ms Mannion and Mr Wycherley. Thank you for all your hard work and all the best for the future - you will be missed!

Have a great summer everyone!           Ms Duggal
Did you know that children need to read daily for half an hour during the summer holidays otherwise they will be three months behind their peers? Research shows how important it is to keep reading over this time, so make sure your child isn’t one of those who falls behind. Go to your local library to borrow books. Reading Egg is another way to keep reading. There is a great section to help your child learn new vocabulary. Have a great holiday and keep up the reading!
Sports Day Awards

We held our Sports Day Awards Ceremony this week and children were thrilled to win individual medals and be recognised for their participation in all of the events on Sports Day. There was a gold, silver and bronze medal for a girl and a boy in each year group. There was also a winners shield presented to the winning team : Team Great Britain.

Reading Race The reading race is a school competition that rewards the class that has read the most.
Congratulations Y6 Niagara who have read 161 times at home last week!
Y6 Leavers Performance

Year 6 performed  'Bugsy Malone' on stage last week for the annual Y6 Leavers Performance. Well done Y6 you were fantastic. Welbourne wishes you all every success for the future as you move to secondary school!

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 in September. 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
Head Lice 
Please note that there are some cases of head lice in the school. This is not unusual when large numbers of children are working and playing closely together. If you find your child does have head lice, it must be treated to ensure it does not spread.
We urge you to routinely check you child's hair and follow advice on the NHS website for wet combing to eradicate any eggs or lice present:
