Dear Parents,

The children will be coming home with their reports this evening. I hope you have found the mid-term reports helpful, informing you of the areas that your child needed to concentrate on over the year. The report should round up the areas and conversations you have had with the Class Teacher at the Parent's Evenings over the last year. I hope that you enjoy sharing the report with your child this evening.

As the summer holidays approach sometimes parents have concerns about children playing out or being unsupervised in dangerous areas, like the beach. The advice we have been given is... if you are concerned about a child and it is not an emergency - ring 101. This is the Police non-emergency number and your concern will be directed to the local force. If the situation is an emergency you can call 999. If you have concerns about a child's welfare over the summer you can contact Devon Multi Agency Support Hub (MASH) on 0345 155 1071. They will ask you about your concerns and why you think a child is at risk.
SCOPAY has been given a new look and feel, making it even easier for parents to use.  The website will become mobile responsive by the 8th July.  In the meantime, weve released a brand-new app which is available to download now for IOS and Android users.

Next years Year 6 will shortly receive a letter informing them of the fantastic opportunity to visit our Capital City - London, on a four night Residential Visit. The date of the visit has been scheduled for 27th - 31st January 2020.
This is a great opportunity to further widen their educational experience which includes some of the most famous of London's Landmarks.

Places are booking fast for the Autumn term. If you would like your child to start attending Tiddlers or Tiny Tiddlers, or would like to change your hours,  please see one of the team as soon as possible.

We have had a very busy week this week. We sat outside and watched the fantastic Essex dancers on Monday then joined in with the rest of the school with Sports day on Wednesday. All our racers got a fantastic medal.

Hopefully the weather will stay nice for our last full week so please remember your sun cream, hats and changes of clothes as we play in the water more when the weather is hot!!

As always, thank you for your support.
