A round-up of the latest school news for week ending 18.03.2021
We appreciate that it has been difficult for many families during the lockdown and for some children the return to school has also been an anxious time. If you would like to discuss any concerns you have regarding your child’s wellbeing, please contact the school to arrange an appointment to speak to either your child’s class teacher or Mrs Dean.
We normally hold Parents’ Evenings during the second half of the Spring term but due to the partial school closure during lockdown 3 we have decided to move meetings to the first half of the summer term. Further information will be sent out after the Easter holiday.
Hot school meals for KS2
Last week we advised parents that after Easter we are considering offering hot lunches again to children in Years 3 to 6. To date we have had only 2 parents respond. Please could you let Mrs Thirlaway know via email if you would like your child to have hot meals and how often. If we do not get enough uptake we will be unable to offer them to KS2. Thank you.
The Governors and staff of the school are keen to engage with parents to find out your views to help to make decisions with regards to shaping the future of the school, spending of grants etc, we are therefore proposing to send out short, focused questionnaires to gather your views which should take no more than 1 minute to complete. We would like to start by gathering some information to help to make decisions with regards to engaging children in physical activity and also views on the Covid secure return to school. These are very short, 3 question questionnaires. We would prefer it if you could complete these online by using the links below or by scanning the QR Code on a paper copy. If you need a paper copy of the questionnaire, this can be collected from the School Office.
We try to encourage healthy eating in school at break and lunch times. Children in Reception, YR1 and YR2 receive a free piece of fruit or veg every day from the Government Fruit and Veg Scheme. Key stage 2 pupils are asked to bring fruit or vegetables from home.
All pupils are welcome to bring a healthy snack from home, such as fruit, vegetables or dried fruit, for morning break. The school will actively discourage all other snacks at morning break. Food containing nuts are not allowed in school, on grounds of health and safety considerations to any nut allergic members of the school community. Sweets, chocolate bars, chewing gum and fizzy drinks are also not allowed in school. Please see our healthy eating policy on the website for further details. https://www.wolvertonprimary.org.uk/our-school/school-meals

Weekly exercise challenge
Each week we will be setting a challenge for the children to take part in at home to encourage them to continue exercise as the lockdown begins to lift. We have spoken to the children and they have suggested several ideas. Each week we will be setting a challenge for them to complete. This week’s challenge is to ‘go for a walk in the woods’. If you have woods in your local area that you can visit and would like to take part, send us a picture and we will show them in next week’s newsletter.
