Week Beginning 30th September 2019

Well we survived the wet week, everyone felt very damp indeed.  Thank you so much for your support with the Tuck Shop, the box idea worked a treat.  We thought 10 very large different bags of sweets were enough – no way, double that next time we will.  As we ran out we will have an extra tuck sale on the last Friday of the half term, same idea with pots gets a few more sweets, 50p a scoop.

 

The Head Vets and I went shopping today and came back with 2 guinea pigs, who are lovely 4 week old girls.  William names one Nugget and Taizey named the other Willow.  All the children were very excited to see them.  They will be housed in their mansion in the foyer and we will slowly introduce them to the children in the weeks to come so they get use to being handled.  They will remain indoors until the spring as it will be too cold outside now.  If you would like to offer a home for the weekend, then please let the office know and they will book a weekend visit for you. 

 

Following feedback, we have put together a list of contacts for commonly asked questions that are not the responsibility of the school – please contact the correct organisation directly.

Reception Class Parent/Carers

Packs from Children and Family Health Surrey have come home with your child this week. These include details for the Height and Weight Checks. Please ensure you return if the form if you DO NOT wish your child to be included.

 

Uniform

The children are looking wonderful.  But lots of children have grown and some of the girl’s skirts are now too short.  Our policy is that all skirts must be knee length and I ask parents to ensure that their child’s is in accordance with school policy as soon as possible.  I remind parents that there are drawers full of uniform that has kindly been donated by parents, please help yourself.  

 

Marvellous Me

We now have 74% of parents/carers set up, do let us know if you are having any difficulties.

Remember this is vital to have in place for homework and celebrations to be shared.  Each week there will be a badge your child can earn and a learning activity that will be shared by the teacher so you know more about what your child has learnt.  

 

Contact Details

Coming home are the Data Collection Sheets for your child. Please update with any changes, sign and return to the school office by Tuesday 1st October.

 

Eco Council

The first meeting of the new Eco Council will be on Tuesday 8th Oct, 2.15-3.15pm, for the children and parents.

 

Community Stay & Play

Each week there are 2 community Stay and Play sessions running at Ash Grange Primary School. These are suitable for children from birth to 5 years of age.  The weekly term time sessions will be held in the school hall on Mondays and Wednesday afternoons between 1.30pm and 3pm. Entry is through the hall door entrance (down the school drive). No need to book – simply turn up, stay and play with your child.

It was lovely to see 17 children with us over the week that has just gone.

 

Ash Manor Community event – 8th October

Ash Manor school invite your views on the next phase of its development into the exceptional community school Ash deserves.  They will be welcoming members of the Ash Manor community including parents, residents, alumni and future families to see our plans and share their thoughts on them.

 

The Community Engagement event will run from 2.30pm-7pm and you are welcome to drop in at any point. They are looking forward to sharing their vision and hearing your opinions.

 

Volunteering at Ash Grange

At Ash Grange, we are committed to offering a flexible range of opportunities and to encouraging a diversity of people to volunteer with us.  The volunteer role is based on trust and mutual understanding. We expect volunteers to honour the time commitment made, so that class teams can plan effective use of the volunteers’ time.

 

What we expect of you:

What you can expect from us:

  • to attend when you have agreed to, at least fortnightly
  • to be willing to work in any class/area of school, not your child’s class as it is often too difficult to share a family member with the class
  • to be reliable and honest
  • to uphold our values and comply with all relevant school policies.
  • to make the most of opportunities given, eg for training
  • to contribute positively to the aims of our school and avoid bringing the
  • school into disrepute
  • to carry out tasks within agreed guidelines
  • to have clear information about what is and is not expected of them
  • to receive adequate support and training
  • to be insured and to volunteer in a safe environment
  • to be treated with respect and in a non-discriminatory manner
  • to receive out of pocket expenses
  • to have opportunities for personal development
  • to be recognised and appreciated
  • to be able to say ‘no’ to anything which they consider to be unrealistic or
  • unreasonable
  • to know what to do if something goes wrong

 

If you would like to volunteer this year, please come along to an informal meeting next Thursday 3rd October at 9am with Mrs Rumsby. If you cannot make this meeting, please call and arrange another time to meet with Mrs Rumsby.
