Dear Parents, Carers and Governors

The term is flying by and we have just one more week to half term. Teachers will be holding parent / teacher consultations next week for Years 1 to 6. If you have not booked your appointment on line please contact the school office.

Oxford Half Marathon
Congratulations to our Running Club who completed their 13th mile at the Oxford Half Marathon on Sunday. They have been training over the last few weeks every Tuesday after school accumulating 12 miles of running. They represented our school in true style and we are very proud of them. Thank you to Mrs Robinson, Miss Jenkins and Miss Fillary who have supported and trained them all the way as well as a number of parents and older sibling volunteers who have come to help out with running club.

Art Work
Hopefully your child has brought home a design for Christmas Cards this week. Orders must be returned to school no later than Wednesday of next week. We cannot receive any orders after this date.

Library volunteers
If there are any parents who would like to do some voluntary work in our library on either a regular or casual basis please could you let Mrs Bradbury know. We would be very grateful for any help we can receive. Please contact Mrs Bradbury via the school office.

Lunchtime Supervisor
We are still looking for a permanent lunchtime supervisor and are short of staff at the moment. Applications are available from the school office or our website.
In addition, if anyone is willing to be set up as a paid casual who we can call on from time to time please let the school office know and they will pass on the relevant information.

Tennis
With October half term fast approaching why not sign up for the Excel Tennis Academy Holiday Tennis Courses. Flexible bookings and sessions for children aged 4 – 16. Bookings can be made for Mornings 9am – 12:00pm, Afternoons 12:00pm – 3:00pm or Full Days 9:00am – 3:00pm. You can also book just one day or a whole week which ever works best for you. All pupils are arranged into age groups each day to give every pupil the best experienced possible. Every child who attends our courses also receives a gift for coming along. If you have any questions please let me know and I would be very happy to help.

Bookings can be made on our website using this link: http://www.exceltennisacademy.co.uk/all-holiday-courses

The Excel Tennis Academy is also Ofsted registered so we can accept Childcare Vouchers.

As your School is part of the Excel Tennis Academy Schools Partnership we would love to offer you a 10% discount. This can be used on a full week or just a single day. Simply use discount code ’school’ at checkout to receive the discount.
