Letter dated 6/9/07
Dear Parents and Carers
Welcome back to a new term, I hope you all had a good holiday.
We are delighted to welcome James and Oscar into our Reception year and Connor into Yr 4.
The staffing remains the same with the exception of Mrs Snaith, who left in July.
The cost is now £1.80 per day, £9.00 per week. This is quite a large increase, but the meals are of a high standard, and kitchen staff have been given some long overdue recognition for the work they do.
Please try to pay on time Mondays, if paying weekly, or you can pay half-termly or termly. Cheques should be made out to NYCC Manfield Primary School.
Please make sure all monies are placed in envelopes or purses, clearly named.
After School Clubs for KS2
Sports Club - Mondays 3.30 4.30 p.m. If fine this will take place outside. If wet, we can use the village hall, but I will need to charge £1.00 per person to cover the rental.
Craft Club Wednesdays 3.30 4.30 p.m. A variety of activities based on the childrens choices, led by Mrs Croft and Mrs Stocks. If you are interested in helping, please let us know as we occasionally have to cancel if staff have meetings.
Please ensure that sweatshirts are clearly labelled. Please ensure that children have PE kit in school all week, so that we can take advantage of fine weather. If wet, we use the hall on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Plimsolls are the best footwear for the hall, trainers for the field. At this time of the year, warm clothing is a must our field is quite open to the elements.
