On Friday 13th November, Infant children were treated to a ‘Disney Feast’ for lunch in celebration of Children in Need. Leanne and all the catering team made a real effort to ensure the children had a magical lunch time. Items included mickey mouse pizza and crown shaped cheese parcels! The children espeically enjoyed their frozen themed treats afterwards. Thank you to our amazing lunch time staff for their hard work, the children had a great time! Have a look at our fabulous team, the delicious treats that were on offer and most importantly, how much our children enjoyed them!

THRILLS AND SKILLS SESSIONS CLASSES 6 AND 7 – WEDNESDAY AFTERNOONS
Last week it was brought to our attention that some pupils were not suitably equipped for the ‘Thrills and Skills’ outdoor activity session. To address any parental concerns we held a meeting last Friday in the junior hall where we listened to all feedback.
Chris Hall who delivers the ‘Thrills and Skills’ sessions, has agreed to provide overalls for all pupils to further protect the old clothing the children should be changing into for the activity. Children should also bring in a pair of wellies to wear as the field can get muddy. The school is happy to provide wellies to those children with none at home. Could you please indicate below if your child will need to borrow some wellies and what size they will need and return the slip to us by no later than tomorrow (17th November).
We will continue to provide this excellent resource for children until January.
Thank you for your continued support.
We are very lucky at Delves Lane. Parents have started to come into school every Friday to hear children read in Key Stage 1. Books can include books from home, reading books or books from the class book corner. Some weeks we visit the library and some weeks we use Bug Club and read on ipads.
Please find attached the most recent newsletter which was sent out Friday 6th November.
Please find attached our first ever celebration newsletter and an end of term letter from Mrs Woods.
Our school reopens on Monday 2nd November for pupils.
In the meantime we wish all pupils, staff and parents a safe and happy holiday.

As Breakfast Club has become more popular, I have found it necessary to employ more staff to look after the children and this, unfortunately, has necessitated in a price increase. With effect from Monday 5 October 2015 the cost of Breakfast Club will increase from £1.00 per day to £1.50 per day.
For those parents who have not used this facility in the past, I have included some details below:
Breakfast Club starts at 8.00 am until 8.50 am every day. Children are escorted by staff to their classes at 8.50 am.
Children are welcome to attend on an ‘ad hoc’ basis and do not have to attend every day.
Children bring the money with them to Breakfast Club and pay daily.
A small snack is provided ie cereal, toast and a drink.
There are a variety of activities on offer for the children to partake in.
I trust your children will still enjoy attending Breakfast Club.

Welcome back and an especially warm welcome to all of our new Reception and Nursery parents. We hope that you had a fantastic summer.
We have an exciting year ahead of us, with many trips and events planned. A ‘School Calendar of Events’ will be sent home in the next two weeks, once all dates have been confirmed.
I am attaching a summary of the results for the summer of 2015. They are fantastic I would like to thank all pupils, staff, and parents for their hard work and support.
As we welcome pupils back to school this autumn, can I just inform you that the welfare and safety of all pupils is of paramount importance for us.
Under no circumstances should a pupil in early years or Key Stage One walk to or from school on their own before or after school. In addition, we only hand over pupils to named adults or older siblings provided they are 16 years old or above. Pupils will not be handed over to other adults unless the school has been informed by the parent that they’ve made this arrangement. We also ask that you keep us informed of any changes in arrangements /details by completing a new form. Parents/Carers must inform the school office as a matter of urgency if they are running late.
There is no set age when children are ready to walk home on their own. It very much depends on their maturity and confidence. Therefore as regards to Key Stage Two pupils we believe, that you as parents need to decide whether your child is ready for this responsibility.
We would still highly recommend that pupils in Year 3 and 4 are still brought to school (top yard) and collected.
Pupils must be collected from the ‘top yard’ by designated adults on the contact forms and will not be handed over to other adults unless the school has been informed by the parent that they’ve made this arrangement. We also ask that you keep us informed of any changes in arrangements /details by completing a new form. Parents/Carers must inform the school office as a matter of urgency if they are running late.
If you allow your child to walk to the school gate or a parked car outside the school gate, then the school will request written consent for this. As parents you are responsible for ensuring your child knows what to do in the event in any delay in your arrival. Please note there is no supervision at the gate or outside the premises and staff will be unaware if your child has or has not been collected safely.
Attached is a form for you to complete regarding home time arrangements. Please could you fill it in and return it as a matter of urgency. If the form is not completed and returned
then pupils will not be allowed to leave the premises as we will not have the required written consent.
IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU COMPLETE THE FORM EVEN IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY DONE SO.
I am attaching an ‘Attendance Policy Statement’ for your information. We always strive to build positive relationships with parents and carers and ask if you have any queries regarding the statement or any other matter, to get in touch with us.
Your continued support is much appreciated. Thankyou.
Mrs B Woods
