Brackley Church of England Junior School Manor Road Head Teacher: Brackley Mrs Loretta Boreham Northants NN13 6EE firstname.lastname@example.org T. 01280 707060 www.brackleyjuniorschool.co.uk F. 01280 700953 Newsletter 7 21st October 2011 Dear Parents, Carers and Governors, I would like to update you on our Child Protection procedures at BJS. I am the Designated Senior Person for child protection and if you have any concerns at all then please come in immediately to talk to me. If I am unavailable then please speak to Mrs Whitlock. The Governor with responsibility for Child Protection is our Parent Governor, Samantha Perkins, and she has had the Child Protection training. Please note that all of our policies are in the school office and you are welcome to view them at any time. This has been a very busy and productive half term. Please have a lovely break and we will see you again on Tuesday 1 st November. Loretta Boreham Attention all Budding Artists! - The School Council would like to launch a competition called THE GREAT WALL OF NATURE. This is open to all children at BJS, to design artwork for the wall which separates the two playgrounds. The theme must be NATURE; other than that, you are free to be as creative as possible! Please create your design on A4 paper, and remember to keep it fairly simple and eye-catching so that it would work well on a larger scale if recreated. The deadline for this competition is the Wednesday after half term (2nd November) and entries must be handed in to your School Council Representative on or before this date. The School Council will then judge these entries and choose which ones will be included in the wall design. There will be a prize for all of those chosen, and of course your work will be on display for all to see! Good luck! Swimming - We would like to remind parents that according to County Council Guidelines, when swimming with School, the children are required to wear trunks or a costume and wear a swimming hat for their lessons. The County Guidelines for safe Practice say ‘It is important that swimming clothing is relatively tight fitting so as to minimise the effect of drag that water logged clothing can create.’ Db Primary - Well done to all those who have been accessing the Learning Platform. Keep your eyes open over half term for new items on the pages! Remember it’s http://brackley.northants.dbprimary.com. Fair trade Chocolate – As part of our upper school creative curriculum unit on Fair-trade we are completing a study on chocolate. We have planned to carry out some artwork using chocolate wrappers and need as many brought into school as possible! We are not asking you to eat more chocolate (I am sure we would all love to!) but to collect the wrappers when you do in order to support us. Many thanks. Blackbirds Assembly – Our uptake for Bikeability has been so good that many children from the Blackbirds will be cycling on Wednesdays for the next five weeks. We are therefore moving the Class Assembly to Monday 21 st November at 2.30pm. We apologise for any inconvenience but hope you will still be able to join us. Year 4 & 6 Residentials – Deposits for both Residential visits should have been paid today. Payment record cards have been distributed for all those who have paid. Further payments can now be made at your convenience but please ensure you send in the payment card with your remittance. If you have not yet sent in the deposit please send it in to school on Tuesday 1st November. Lost Property – We have had a number of children who have lost their named sweatshirts recently. Please could you check that you do not have somebody else’s when you are washing them over the holidays! Tag Rugby – Please note that this club has changed from Monday to Friday lunch time. Cooking Club – Children in Cooking Club are asked to bring in £5.00 to cover cooking costs for the next 5 weeks. Thank you. Go Ride Cycling – Parents, carers, family and friends are invited to the Cycling Competition on Wednesday 2 nd November from 1.00 – 3.10pm. It promises to be a fun afternoon of racing so please wrap up warm and come and support our riders! Year 6 Parents – All applications for a secondary school place should be made by 31st October.
