Dear Parents                                                                                                                              14th September 2017

Safety & Security

Safety and Security is of paramount importance at Northmead.  In one of the early newsletters of the new school year it is  timely to give a few reminders:

Medicines

If your child requires medication to be given in school please bring it in, clearly marked in the original container/packaging and ensure that you complete the correct paperwork at the school office.

Jewellery

Earrings may not be  worn for any  physical activity at school.  Any child who is unable to remove or put in their own small stud earrings should not wear them on the day that they have PE, games or swimming.

Road Safety

We are fortunate to have a Crossing Patrol Officer at school who helps the children cross Grange Road at the beginning and end of each day.  Please remind your child to cross in front of her, where she can see them and ensure that they are safe.

Communication

Our email contact contactus@northmead.surrey.sch.uk is an efficient method of communicating with our staff.  The emails are centrally monitored to ensure your query, problem or request is actioned quickly and efficiently.  Please ensure that communication regarding attendance or collection from school is phoned through to the school office.  Absence can be reported using Parentmail  or by phoning the Absence line : 01483 529889.

 

Secondary School Applications ~ Year 6 Pupils

All children in Year 6 took home a leaflet at the beginning of term from Surrey County Council.  These leaflets will have given you information on the secondary admission process.  We recommend you read this important leaflet very carefully.  The deadline for secondary applications is 31st October 2017, however Surrey advises that parents submit their applications before the half term holiday. Please go to https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/schools/school-admissions for more information.

Lost Scooter

Please can we ask for your help? Yesterday one of our Year 5 children brought in his new scooter and parked it in the scooter rack. Sadly when he went to collect it at the end of the school day it was missing. The missing scooter is a Mongoose Scooter (Halfords)  with purple markings. If your child comes on a scooter please check if they have the correct one.  Please contact the school office if you are able to help.
