New IT System - Scholarpack
At the start of this term we introduced a new IT software package in the school called Scholarpack. One of the things we are using this new software for is to send texts and e-mails to parents. You may have noticed that all texts and e-mails are now being sent to Contacts 1 & 2 for your child. Please therefore ensure that your mobile numbers and e-mail addresses are up-to-date to ensure you receive these communications.
Health & Safety Mascot Competition update
Sophie, who won the competition in March, now has her poster proudly displayed outside the library. Sophie said:
“When I found out I had won first place in the Health & Safety mascot competition I felt extremely happy and I was very excited about having my poster displayed for everyone to see. I was also looking forward to seeing the newspaper article with my picture in it. With the £50 Toys r Us gift card, I spent the money on some sweets for the class, a board game and I gave the rest of the money to my brother.”
