It may not seem like it at the moment but summer will soon be upon us and it is important that pupils are kept safe when it comes to exposure to the sun.

Here is a link for the Cancer Research UK Sunsmart website for information regarding sun safety.

RHOSDDU PRIMARY SCHOOL

NEWSLETTER – OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2012

Firstly, I would like to thank you for your continued support during the first half of this term.  Outlined below are a few points that parents and staff have brought to my attention.

Parent Governors
Our two elected Parent Governors are Mr. Rob Grindley and
Miss Nikki Lynch.  We also have a new Chair of Governors – Ms Linzi Lancelotte.  Our thanks to the outgoing parent governors Mr. Simon Meyers and Mr. Phil Jones.

Message from Mr. Phil Jones – Ex Chair of Governors

‘I would like to thank the staff, pupils and parents for making Rhosddu such a great place to have been Chair of Governor for, if only for a year.

Being a parent governor with a four year term I always knew when I became chair in September 2011 that it may only be for a year as my term finished this September.  Unfortunately not being re-elected as a parent governor means I now need to hand the role of chair on as well.

It was a great year with many highlights such as the inspection and it being the first year with Mrs. Young being the head and I look back on it fondly.

I wish all the staff, pupils and parents all the best for the future and look forward to seeing the continued success of the school’

P.T.A.

Thank you to our P.T.A who give us generous donations during the year -giving each class £100 per class for each term.  Also, £100 S.E.N. per term for resources.  Recently, we have received from the P.T.A. £500 to buy out door clothing which we find extremely useful when we use our ‘Out Door Classroom’ on the school field.

Gentle Reminder

Please could all parents close the gate on entry and exit to/from school.  The  gate is padlocked when children are outside.  If you speak to a member of staff they will be able to open the gate.

As the weather is turning and there is likely to be more rain.  Mrs. Young and Mrs. Baker will monitor if rain becomes heavy and will allow children to come in from 8.50 a.m.  As we have shelters if rain is light or intermittent children will remain on the yard.

Uniform

It was most pleasing to see how smart the children looked in their full school uniforms.  PLEASE LABEL ALL YOUR CHILDREN’S CLOTHING AND SHOES.  Trainers should only be worn at break times for soccer/netball etc.  If genuine difficulties occur – please see Mrs. Young.

Signing Out

If your child is collected from school during the school day please ensure you sign them out in reception and back in when returning.  This is for fire safety regulations.

Lateness Book

Children arriving once classes have gone inside school should go to reception to be let in.  In line with our school attendance policy children arriving after 9.30 a.m. will be recorded as late which means they do not have an attendance mark for that session.

Number of Holidays

Regular absence from school is a significant problem which can have serious consequences for the child (ren) involved and for society as a whole.  Parents have a legal duty to ensure that their children (ren) are properly educated.  For most children this means regular attendance at a local school.  ‘Regular Attendance’ means that children should be in school from Monday to Friday during the hours that the school is open.  Children who regularly arrive late and miss registration are not attending school regularly. In law, there are some acceptable reasons for absence if your child is ill or due to some other unavoidable cause.  Absence for other reasons, including holidays in term time, should be discussed with the headteacher.  Permission for holiday leave can only be given by the Headteacher.  The Welsh Government guidance says “schools should use their discretion sparingly”.  Also, “save in exceptional circumstances a parent shall not be granted more than ten school days leave of absence in any school year” but “ten school days should not regarded as the norm”. (see attached sheet)

Clothing for Playtimes

Whenever possible we try to ensure that children are outside during break times.  Please ensure that your child has suitable clothing and footwear whatever the weather.

Head Lice

If any family is experiencing difficulties in dealing with head lice we can arrange for the school nurse to offer advice. Please call into school and let us know.

Car Park

The Governors would like to remind parents that the staff car park (from 8.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m.) is purely for the use of STAFF AND OFFICIAL VISITORS ONLY. We understand it is very busy outside school at the start and the end of day so parents need to be vigilant.  Our PCSO has called into school to inform us that she has spoken to a few parents who have been parking on the yellow lines.

Dogs

The Governors would like to remind parents that dogs (with the exception of guide dogs) should not be brought onto the school yard for health & safety reasons.

Healthy Snacks

No chocolate biscuits or crisps for morning playtime, please.  We are trying to encourage healthy eating habits amongst the children and your help is much appreciated as we continue to build on the good practice within the school.  May we please ask that all snacks brought from home for break must not contain nuts as we do have children with nut allergies.

School Meals

The cost of school meals is £2.00 a day (£10 per week) for infants and £2.05 a day (£10.25 per week) for juniors.  Would parents please place the money in an envelope with your child’s name and class clearly marked and sent it in on Mondays or Fridays please.  We would be grateful if dinner money could be sent in weekly and not left to accumulate into debt.  If your child has any special dietary requirements or allergies please see the cook.

Tesco & Sainsbury Vouchers - Vouchers Exchanged

Gardening Equipment, Recordable Magnifying Glasses, Resources for the Outdoor Classroom.

A huge thank you to you for sending in the Tesco and Sainsbury vouchers.  We are able to buy resources and equipment for your children.

School re-opens: Tuesday 8th January, 2013 for pupils

Parents' evenings at Rhosddu Primary School have taken place earlier this week.

Wednesday was 'No Smoking Day' and a group of year five and six pupils were accompanied to Rowlands the Chemist on Rhosddu Road where they were told about the damage caused to lungs by smoking and other dangerous side effects.


On Tuesday, Laura Parry of Nightingale House met with Malcolm King the Head teacher to discuss further ways of strengthening the links that the school already has with the hospice.


This week everyone in the school was delighted to receive a letter from the local National Assembly member, Lesley Griffiths.
More than 80 schools throughout Wales had responded to an invitation by the Welsh Assembly to produce a small tablecloth to celebrate Fairtrade week.
These had been joined together to form one very large cloth which was put on display at the Senedd in Cardiff.
She was so impressed by the fact that a Wrexham school had responded to the invitation and that the work was of such a high standard that she felt impelled to write a letter to the school to offer her congratulations and to say how proud she felt of the staff and children involved.
