Important update.

I am pleased to inform you that, following a weekend of extensive works, school will be open on Monday. Thank you for all your support in picking up the children early on Friday and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. See you in the morning, Rachel Waite

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.

CLUBS WILL NOT RUN DURING THE HALF TERM HOLIDAY (28th May – 1st June 2018)

There have been some changes to clubs for next term, so please see the table below for the new timetable. Providers and costs to clubs are on the clubs own letters.

Please note, you MUST apply for each club directly to the separate club providers. For example, if your child would like to attend Football, Gymnastics and Film Club, you will need to hand in three separate envelopes to the office, clearly stating:

  • your child’s name
  • the club you are applying for
  • the club providers name along with payment in full

 

We will not be able to provide change at the office so please send in the correct money or cheque.

 

THE FULL AMOUNT MUST BE PAID WHEN SIGNING UP FOR A CLUB

 

Code of Conduct

Parents MUST ensure that the Code of Conduct is signed by both the parents and children and returned to the office so that we have a record for every child participating. Children will not be able to take part in clubs without the signed Code of Conduct.

 

REFUNDS

School cannot refund any money once the child has registered for the club.  This includes illness, days out on class trips or if your child chooses not to go to the club.

 

CLUBS BEHAVIOUR

In the past, it has been reported to the school that some lapses in good behaviour have been witnessed whilst attending club activities. We recognise that this behaviour has occurred as isolated incidents and that the vast majority of attendees are very well behaved; however, we must bring this to your attention and respectfully ask all club attendees to display good behaviour at all times and to respect both the school, coaches and other club participants. So that we can monitor any concerns of unacceptable behaviour and prevent continuing incident, a record sheet will be given to each club coach where they will record inappropriate or disruptive behaviour.  This will then be fed back to the child’s parents and a first warning given. If a child has two recordings in any one club they will be excluded with no refund of subscription fee.

 

SNACKS

Children will not be allowed to eat snacks during club times. If you do wish to provide a snack for your child they will be encouraged to eat before or after the session. This must be a healthy snack, ie fruit, not sweets or crisps.
