Start of Year letter to parents...

Dear Parents/Carers,
 
Start of Year Reminders  
I hope you and your children have had a lovely summer.  There has been a lot going on in school to prepare for what will be a fantastic year at St Edward’s.   Children in Years 1 - 6 return to school on Thursday, 5th September at the normal time.  Children in Nursery and Reception will have been contacted about their rolling start.  Children should return in Summer Uniform.  Children should bring their PE kit into school no later than Monday, 9th September.
Children in Years 1 - 5 will be swimming weekly this term.  A further letter with the start date and information on the day your child will be swimming will follow shortly.   Our Breakfast Club and After School Clubs will resume on Thursday.  We have a few places available in both clubs.  For more information, please email the school (contact@stedwardsva.net) or contact the School Office, which will be open from 9am - 3pm on Wednesday and then will resume normal opening times from Thursday.
Dates for the Diary
Parents’ Meetings
As we start the year, I will be holding information sessions for parents.  At this meeting, we will outline our vision for the year, give key information and also hear from Year Group Leaders, who will be telling you about what your children will be learning this year, and how you can support them at home.  The meetings will be as follows:
 
Nursery/Reception: Tuesday, 10th September at 9am and 6pm 
Year 1 & Year 2: Wednesday, 11th September at 9am and 6pm
Year 3 & Year 4: Thursday, 12th September at 9am and 6pm
Year 5 & Year 6: Friday, 13th September at 9am and 6pm  
Prayer Meeting
Every week, a number of staff gather to pray on a Wednesday before school, praying for the school and the coming week.  As we start the year, we would like to open our first gathering on Wednesday, 11th September, to families and friends of the school too.  If you would like to join and pray with us at 8:20am, for 15 minutes, you would be very welcome.  Please come to the School Office.  Childcare for your children will be available, so please feel free to bring them along.  
Please remember to look at our website for key events and dates, more details of which will be given at the parents’ meetings.   We look forward to working closely with you this year.  
Yours sincerely,
Chris Speller
Head Teacher
