COFFEE MORNING on Friday 8th June 2018, 9am in the Lower Hall

 

We would like to extend a warm welcome to all our families who will be joining us in September. We hope by now that you have accepted your offer and are looking forward to the start of your child’s journey through Montbelle Primary School.

 

To help alleviate any worries you may have about your child starting school and to begin to get to know the families within Reception, we would like to invite you to one of our school coffee mornings on Friday 8thJune 2018. The coffee morning is run by the school’s PTA and will be a fantastic opportunity to come and have a chat over a ‘cuppa’ and some cake and begin to get to know each other. Second hand uniform is on sale during the morning and a selection of toys and activities to keep your little ones entertained!

 

School staff will be on hand to let you know about our ‘New to Reception’ Stay and Play Week and our Teddy Bear’s Picnic, so join us to find out more.

 

We look forward to seeing you there!

VOLUNTEERS
Are you looking for a change in career?
Are you looking to get back into work following a break?
Do you have skills that you feel we could use in school?
At Montbelle Primary we are always happy to welcome volunteers who are looking to gain experience within the school environment. If you are interested in giving your time to develop your skills of working with children, please email admin@montbelle.org.uk or phone 0208 857 3909 with your name, contact details and an overview of what area you would like to volunteer in. One of our senior staff team will be in touch to arrange an appointment to meet and discuss any opportunities we may have.
 
All volunteers will be subject to all the necessary safeguarding checks.
READING SUPPORT
Do you have a few spare hours a week? Could you come in and listen to some of our children read?
Reading is of huge importance to a child’s education and helps set a child up for life. We have a number of parents, carers, family members and people within our community who come to school each week and listen to children read. We are not asking you to teach a child to read, just to give some extra time for children to read aloud, talk about the book they have read and develop their confidence in reading aloud.
If you feel you could give a couple of hours each week, on a regular basis, please email admin@montbelle.org.uk or phone 0208 857 3909 with your name, contact details and an overview of what you would like to help us with. One of our senior staff will be in touch to arrange an appointment to meet with you.
All volunteers will be subject to all the necessary safeguarding checks.

We encourage parental involvement in all aspects of school life. We often need help with themed days, trips, reading and many other subjects in school, so if you have a particular interest in the topic your child is learning or a particular talent in that area please let your child’s class teacher know.

 

Other ways we encourage to take part in the life at Montbelle are as follows:

                                                                                                                                        

  • Weekly parent workshops (please look at the parent workshop tab for more information) which includes lots of information about your childs education, for example: how to help your child with phonics; mental maths strategies; transition to secondary school or even just a celebration of the terms work!

 

  • dads and lads: a time to get the dads/grandads/uncles/brothers in some school fun! Activities, led by the school staff, involve woodwork, forest schools and sport!

 

  • family picnic: when the sun comes out, we encourage parents and carers to join the rest of the school in a morning breakfast!

 

  • End if term workshops: one of our most popular times of the term where we invite parents/carers to join their children in a Christmas or Easter extravaganza. Be prepared for glitter, glue and lots of fun!

 

  • Parent Forum: parent representatives from each class get to meet with members of the SLT and ask questions or put forward suggestions to help us improve the childrens experiences at Montbelle

 

  • Open classroom: encourages parents and carers to come in for the afternoon and take part in a particular theme eg art/maths or science
