Newsletter 16 - 18th April 2018

Dear Parents/Carers,


Welcome back! I hope you all enjoyed the Easter break.

REMINDER: School closed for Bank Holiday on Monday 7th May 2018

MAY HALF TERM                          

School closes for the May half term on Friday 25th May and reopens on Tuesday 5th June at the usual times.



All our current Year 2 pupils are automatically transferring to Warren Juniors in September 2018 and have received a letter confirming this.  Parents of Year 2 children who are NOT transferring to Warren Juniors for any reason will need to write a short letter informing us of the name, address and telephone number of the new school the children will be attending in September.  This will ensure that school records are forwarded to the correct destination school and that the Borough are able to allocate any available places to those children on the Warren Junior interest list for Year 3.  Please could you also inform Warren Juniors on 020 8270 4680 as soon as possible if your child does not require a place in September 2018.


SATs for our Year 2 children will be taking place during May and June, therefore it is vital that your child attends school every day.    REMINDER: Under NO circumstances should Year 2 children miss SATs due to an unauthorised term time holiday.

EDUCATIONAL VISITS                  

Details of the summer term educational visits for Reception and Year 1 children will be issued to parents/carers in due course.


Allocation letters from Furze Infants’ School for Nursery places (September 2018) will start to be sent out in May.  The parents/guardians of children who have accepted a reception place allocated by the Local Authority Admissions Team will receive letters in June from Furze regarding Reception admission and induction arrangements in September.  If you receive a letter from the school please ensure you complete and return any required paperwork to the school office immediately. 


Please can I remind parents to avoid the lunchtime period if collecting children for any day time appointment.  Your child will need to be collected either before or after their lunchtime and we ask that you arrange an appropriate time with the school office.  Once you have spoken to the office please let the class teacher know via a note in your child’s communication book.  Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.


Furze is holding a whole school Science Day on Friday 20th April.  The aim of the day is to get all our children eager to explore Science.  The children are being encouraged to leave their uniform at home and dress up for this day as a mad and crazy scientist.  We have held this event in previous years and the children have a lot of fun and take part in a valuable learning experience.


The school photographer will be in school on Monday 14th May to take class photos.


Yours sincerely,


Head of School.
