Welcome back to the new term; it is lovely to see everyone back. Red Nose Day was a success with us raising a fabulous £186.10 and selling 240 noses. During the Easter holidays, our new library has been completed. It is a lovely area for the children to enjoy their books. Thank you for your patience with this and we will ensure that all children have a book to bring home as soon as we can. Thank you to the parents who completed a Parent View survey at Parents Evening recently, your views are valuable to us as we make positive changes at Charles Baines.
Red Nose Day is on Friday March 24th and the Pupil Council have been working hard to think of ways for us to raise as much money as possible. This year we would like you to wear something red - this doesn't have to be anything official, a red hair bobble or a pair of red socks will look great. Wear a Red Nose Day - these can be purchased in school from Monday. Pupil Council will also be decorating biscuits that will be sold for 20p each. Finally bring your favourite joke and see if you can be funnier than your teacher.
Thank you for my warm welcome back to work after my maternity leave. I have had such a positive start back, it is like I was never away!
Well done to all the pupils too; they have also had an extremely positive start back to the new year and it is lovely to see such great focus.
On January 23rd, the children, staff and parents will be given the opportunity to attend some E-safety workshops. This is a fantastic opportunity for the children to understand how they can keep themselves safe online and the parents to gain a greater understanding of how to keep their children safe online. More details to follow.
Congratulations to our sporting teams and their achievements in recent events.
Well done and thank you to the children who have all contributed to our amazing Remembrance Day display. All staff and children also observed a minutes silence on the playground in a large circle of unity.
There is an exciting opportunity for a new parent governor to be appointed to our established governing body. If you feel this would be of interest to you, please contact the school for more information.
