Volunteers in school

Thank you to those parents who have agreed to volunteer in school, either listening to readers, supporting general activities or accompanying class trips.  We appreciate any time you can offer as your support is invaluable.  If there are any other parents with any skills, interests or experience that you would like to share, we would be very happy to welcome you in school so please just get in touch with myself or the class teachers.

 

Money

With swimming, trips and some clubs carrying a small fee there is money being brought to the office on a daily basis.  There are many occasions when older children bring in money and leave it on Mrs Gallagher’s desk when she is not there.  As you can imagine it is then impossible to know who brought it in and what it is intended for.  It would be enormously helpful if money could be given in a named envelope or at the very least handed to a teacher so we know what it is for and who it is from.

 

Hockey

There are a large number of children taking part in the hockey extra-curricular club.  Year 5/6 are also doing Hockey with Tom this term.  If possible please can those children bring shin pads on Wednesdays and Thursdays to ensure there are no injuries.  We do have some pairs but not enough to supply everyone.  If you have any old and unused shin pads at home we would be grateful for any donations.

 

Photo Exclusions

As you know we require your permission to publish your child’s photograph.  At present the only places we publish photographs are on our website, Twitter feed, the closed Friends Facebook page and occasionally in newspapers such as Ulverston Now and the North West Evening Mail.  With the exception of newspapers, it is very rare that we would publish a picture with a child’s name and if there is a reason for doing this, such as an individual winning an award, we would ensure you were made aware.  The majority of pictures published are of groups of children participating in events or activities which we are keen to celebrate or promote. 

 

For pupils in years 1 to 6, we have recorded the permissions you granted last year.  If you would like to update these permissions or check what you have agreed to then please contact Mrs Gallagher.
