 Newsletter
Autumn Term 2017

 

Dear Parents/Carers

 

This is my first newsletter of the school year and there are quite a lot of things to mention, as well as details

of events at school this term.

 

I am sorry to have to inform you of the very sad and sudden death of a much-loved member of our staff.

Mrs Linda Racca, one of our lunchtime supervisors, who died following a road accident. She was loved by

all the children and will be remembered very fondly by all her friends and colleagues here at school.

 

If you have a child born between 01/09/2013 and 31/08/2014 and have not yet registered them

to start school at Crawley Green in September 2018, please call at the office as soon as possible

and speak with Ms P Boyes. Admission procedures have now changed and applications must be in

  1. 15 January 2018 in order to be included in the initial allocation of places. The school is now very

full and your child could easily miss out on a place if you do not put your application in on time.

 

Years 1 and 2 – Each morning parents/carers are expected to wait with their child and watch them

enter school – children must not be left at the gate or on the playground. There will be a member of

staff at the classroom door to greet the children each morning but please do not leave until you have

seen your child enter the Year 2 class room or go through the Year 1 door.

 

Reception children must be handed over to a member of staff and will be handed back to the parent/

carer at the end of the day.

 

Also, when bringing or collecting children please keep a close eye on them as it is very easy to get

separated in the crowd.

 

For parents/carers of all Year 1 and 2 children ONLYWould you please complete and return

(1) the updated Pupil Contact form – please also ensure to provide two emergency contact names and their mobile numbers and a list of names of people who will be collecting your

child (2) Parental Consent form (attached) giving your permission for the use of photographs

of children in school as part of the curriculum, in displays celebrating achievements, or on the school website (3) Special Dietary Requirements/ Medical Conditions Form – all the forms to

be returned back to school as soon as possible.

 

As you know, children need to bring a bottle of plain, still water only to school every day as they need

access to water at all times.

 

If you are a parent/carer of a child with special educational needs, Luton SENDIAS Service (Luton SEND Information, Advice and Support Service) can offer free, confidential, impartial information, advice and

support in relation to Special Educational Needs and Disability. Call the advisors on either 01525 719754

or 01582 548156.
