Nativity Plays: Please do come along to the Nativity plays next week. The PSA will be selling mince pies and mulled wine (tea and coffee only for the Reception afternoon performance).

Attendance Several of you have been receiving letters regarding attendance recently. A letter may be triggered by a pattern of absence, for instance if we notice that a child is away for a day a week for several weeks or if attendance drops below a certain percentage. The letters are used across all schools in Somerset and in the first instance are designed to raise awareness about how seriously we take attendance and offering help. We have regular visits from the Educational Welfare Officer (attendance officer) to help us in this. We understand that at this time of year the children are more likely to be poorly with colds and coughs but when they are well we do ask you to please do your utmost to build good attendance habits.

On line safety. You may have bought IT devices for your children this Christmas. If the device has internet access, then this link is definitely for you. This guide has been created to answer any of your questions for some of the most popular devices, highlighting the safety tools available and empowering you with the knowledge you need to support your children to use these technologies safely and responsibly.

Merits  Our children are always very well behaved and take their learning very seriously. The HMI who inspected our school recently noted the positive attitudes of the children towards their learning and their good behaviour. We like to reinforce great behaviour by recognising and rewarding it when we see it. In many classes, we use Class Dojos which the children love. They can be earned instantly and will earn the children little treats such as time for choosing or play. In other classes in the older age groups especially, the children earn stars or merits. Here we are looking for more consistent examples of great behaviour and positive attitudes, not just a one off. Merits in Years 5 and 6 build towards the Bronze, Silver and Gold Bars which children wear to show that they set great examples for others. There is even a further award – the Diamond Bar, only rarely awarded. At our Celebration Assemblies we highlight those children who demonstrate any of our three ‘drivers’ – things that we really value: curiosity and never taking things for granted, confidence to have a go and never give up and showing that we belong to the Family of God .     

Fair Frome Our Chaplaincy Team are supporting Fair Frome as they lead up to Christmas by helping collect grocery items such as tinned goods and toiletries. If you could help with any small donation, a tin or a packet the team would be very grateful. All donations to Year 4 by 20th December please. Thank you.

Fair Frome helps local people bounce back from the difficulties of living with poverty.
