Briar Hill Infant School
Year 1 children went on a walk around Whitnash this week.
They focused on the different types of houses they could see, old and new buildings and thinking about The Jolly Postman, what would he see and use?
Today Leanne from the Helping Hands charity talked to the children about what they do and who they help in our Harvest Assembly. She was amazed at the amount of food you have very kindly donated, she explained to the children where all of the food would go to.
Our Full Governing Body met last night and one of their duties was to elect a Chair and Vice-Chair for this academic year. Congratulations to Richard Hawke for being voted in as Chair and Manjit Gill as the Vice-Chair.
We would like to thank Kevin Williams for all of his support in his role as the previous Chair.
We have had a few issues with the School Money Payment system. Thank you for being patient with us. It appears now to be sorted and we will resend the payment request and passwords. Families with more than one child will receive one request per child as there is no way currently of filtering this, therefore please ignore the extra one.
The children from Year 2 last year have been removed and so will not receive a payment request.
Issues with not being able to log in to your child account need to be looked at individually as they are usually linked to spelling of names, email addresses and how the childs details are held on the system. Please come to the office and we will look at your device with you in the hope that we can sort it.
Thank you for your patience and apologies for any inconvenience caused.
We will be sending out links to our School Money online payment system on Monday. This will send you a link to their site and an individual password to access your childs information. You will see the option to pay school fund straight away and other payments will follow through the year as trips and events come up. This proved to be a great success last year when we launched, very popular,
"No more cheques",
"Can never find my cheque book",
"I never have cash so much easier",
These were just some of the quotes from parents.
To make this a success you need to make sure that the office have your current and correct email address and phone number. If you change it please let us know.
Thank you for your support.
Further to the information given to all parents and carers about our financial situation, this year we will be trying not to send out letters in paper form wherever we can. This is to help save costs on both paper and the printing of the letters. You will either receive an email with a link to the school website or an attachment with the letter. If you do need these in paper form please contact the office as they will be able to print you one. We will also, where appropriate put the links on our school Facebook page. It is vital therefore that we have your email address. Please contact the office if you change any of your details.
Thank you for your continued support.
It is the end of the Summer holidays and we are looking forward to seeing all of the children in school. Monday 4th September is a training day for teachers across both schools so Tuesday 5th September is the first day back for Year 1 and Year 2 children, 9am start.
Reception children will be having their home visits next week.
