Another week...another award! Congratulations to all at The Hayes for achieving the silver level of the Transport for London STARs (Sustainable Travel: Active, Responsible, Safe) Award. This is a result of the travel plan that we have submitted detailing the efforts made to reduce car use and encourage walking to school. A huge thank you to Mrs Boylan who worked tirelessly with the Junior Road Safety Officers to obtain this recognition.
Thank you to all parents who helped ensure our Jeans for Genes Day today was a great success. The treasurer of the school council today counted all donations and we are delighted to report that with your help we have managed to raise £355.45 for the charity! Thank you and well done everybody!
Congratulations to our newly formed school council. Class representatives were elected by their peers and met for the first time yesterday. The Chairman did a great job of leading the meeting and its participants contributed confidently and articulately. We are in no doubt that this will be a great year for our School Council. #pupilvoice
We are also proud of our Year six pupil advocates who were announced in assembly today and presented with their badges. We are proud to support these children in developing their leadership skills. Well done to all advocates.
Thank you to all parents who submitted their children's names to attend the Inclusion Quality Mark Award. Selected at random this morning to collect the award with Mrs Roberts and Mrs Bolton, were Ava Year Two and Romeo from Year one.
We have received a few enquiries from parents regarding applications to Reception for siblings due to start in Reception in September 2019. Please be aware that the e-admissions portal opened on the 1st of September and can be accessed via this link https://www.eadmissions.org.uk/eAdmissions/app . The deadline for your applications is January 15th 2019. We are holding open mornings on the 1st and the 20th of November at 9:30. Please spread the word to prospective families!
We still have some vacancies for children wishing to learn to play a musical instrument. If your child is interested please do pop into the office and let us know. You will be given a form to complete and return to us.
Coming up this week...
This week we are hosting our coffee mornings for each year group. We estimate the meeting will last approximately 30 minutes. Please come along and find out more about what your children will be learning this term and how you can continue to support your children at home. All coffee mornings start at 9:00am and will take place in the school hall on the following dates:
Monday 24th: Year One
Tuesday 25th: Year Two
Wednesday 26th: Year Three
Thursday 27th: Year Four
Friday 28th: Year Five
We look forward to seeing you there! If you are unable to attend the coffee morning please do not worry. All presentations will be uploaded to our school website for you to access.
Please can we ask parents to refrain from allowing their children to walk along the wall outside our school. It is not safe and office staff have dealt with many children who have fallen and hurt themselves. Please help us to keep your children safe on our premises. Please do not be upset or offended if we ask your children to get down.
We are delighted that swimming is back and up and running at school and as you know learning to swim is a lifesaving skill which our children are lucky practice each week. If you feel that your child requires further support, practicing in smaller groups after school can help build their confidence and stamina.
There are spaces for swimming lessons after school on Mondays and Wednesdays for non-swimmers, beginners, and improvers. Preschool lessons are also available for children from 3 years old on Monday and Tuesdays at 11:00, Thursdays afternoons, and Friday mornings.
If you are interested in booking a place for these classes please contact Mrs DeCruz via the office. Just keep swimming!!
For school swimming, please can we remind all parents that all children need to wear a swim hat. These are available for sale at the school office for the cost of £3 each.
