Rainford NewsFlash – February 2015
Note from the Headteacher
Many thanks to parents who
came to the ‘Meet the
Headteacher’ coffee morning, I
enjoyed listening to your ideas
and we are already putting some
of them into practice. You will
start to notice ‘guided reading
stickers’ in home reading diaries
to show when your child has read
in a group in school. If you would
like this record of school reading,
please make sure diaries are in
children’s bags each morning.
We have also arranged dates for
‘Year group’ meetings in order to
communicate New Curriculum
expectations for this current
school year to parents. Please
check out ‘Upcoming events’.
We are expanding our range of
extra-curricular activities some of
which take place at lunch times.
More have been provided for our
younger children.
In order to gather parental views
a little more formally there will
be a questionnaire at parents’
evenings
which
I
would
appreciate if you would take the
time to complete. We hope to
continue to build excellent
communication between school
and home.
F.O.R.C.E.S.
Education Sunday
We would like to give many
thanks to all parents and friends
of the school for their support at
the recent FORCES coffee
morning which raised a much
appreciated £410 for school
funds which will be used to
further enhance the outdoor
provision for our children.
FORCES have sent thanks to all
the people who donated cakes
for this event.
It was a joy to join with Janet, the
parish community and children
and teachers from Rainford
Brook Lodge to celebrate
Education Sunday. We were very
proud
of
our
children’s
contributions and would like to
thank Mrs Kelsey and Mrs
Leeming for preparing them so
well.
MOTHER’S DAY GIFT SHOP
Children are invited to purchase
Mother’s Day gifts in our popular
FORCES gift shop available for

On

The Young Voices choir will be
singing for the Mother’s Union

March. Thank you to all those
who have bought tickets to
support this event.
School Disco
There are school discos this
Friday and due to our regular DJ

anticipation to DJ Mr Jarvis
stepping in. We have received
some offers of help from parents
but more help is still needed so if
you can help for an hour we
would love to hear from you.
