We hope you have had a relaxing and enjoyable summer and are ready for the new term. Staff have worked hard over the summer to make sure everything is ready for the pupils so that the very best learning can take place. Children have new planners and passports and will be working on the new curriculum. Class newsletters will be sent out in the next few weeks providing more details and watch out for updates on this site regarding curriculum content.
Mrs Fatty will be visiting school for 2 weeks and will arrive in the UK on 20th September. We once again look forward to strengthening our link with Boraba Lower Basic School and welcoming her to our school. During her visit we plan to hold a KS2 Tag Rugby Tournament as this was a sport we shared with the children during our visit in February. We also plan to hold a Gambian Supper evening on October 1st at 5pm. I hope you will join us for the evening and share the Castlemorton spirit with her.
The highways department have worked during the Summer to improve the situation outside school. They have raised and resurfaced the highway, replaced the grass with grasscrete and have moved the posts next to the footpath. These measures will hopefully make pick up and drop off times easily for everyone.
Mounting onto the grasscrete area will make passing easier so please do so. As near to the posts as is practically possible is advisable. This should ensure that passengers can exit cars onto the footpath and not into the highway. Please do not mount onto the footpath.
Please do not park in the layby outside of school as this is kept clear for – the school bus, disabled access and as a drop of zone in the morning when Mrs Platt will be there to ensure that pupils exit cars and walk into the playground safely.
The safety of the children is of paramount importance and we ask that everyone keeps this is mind when driving to and from school.
