Premier Sports are now taking bookings for the PD day on Friday 15th February 2019. Please visit https://www.premier-education.com/sport to book your space! Further details are available from James on email@example.com
We will be holding two spring and sing assemblies on 3rd April 2019. One at 9.15am and the second at 2.30pm. Parents/Carer’s are welcome to attend, no tickets necessary.
Each year at Newdale, we take part in Safer Internet Day (SID). This year it will take place on Tuesday 5th February. Your child will engage in a series of activities throughout the day with the aim of learning key ways to keep themselves and others safe online. The theme of the day this year is about developing children’s understanding of consent whilst using devices.
This day provides an excellent opportunity to discuss with your child all the positive uses of the internet, but also the importance of staying safe in a digital world.
Why not ask them to share some online safety tips with you? That way you can find out what knowledge they are confident in implementing online and the areas they may need extra support with.
Further ways to support your child at home can be found at:
We will also be providing an electronic copy of a helpful leaflet called ‘Parenting in a Digital World’, courtesy of 2simple on our school website.

Should you require any further information about the day, please discuss with your child’s class teacher.
We would like to remind parents about snacks that are permitted at break times;
KS1- Free fruit is available daily, milk and water or children can bring their own piece of fruit from home.
In KS2- Toast can be purchased at 10p per slice or children can have a piece of fruit or vegetables from their lunchbox
Chocolate and cake bars are not allowed as a break time snack.
All children are required to have a water bottle in school to encourage them to keep hydrated throughout the day. We have noticed that some water bottles are filled up with juice or squash. Children should only have water in their water bottles. This is to ensure all children’s safety while in school as we have many children with allergies. Squash and juice also contain high levels of sugar so water is a much healthier option

Did you know that school meals are FREE to all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2? This includes either a hot meal or a choice of sandwiches from the sandwich bar every day. School dinners are carefully selected with the best ingredients and specific attention being given to ensuring children not only receive a dinner that looks appetising, but also one that supports making sure children have a balanced diet.
Hot School Meal – to order a hot school meal is easy! When the register is taken in class in the morning, your child just needs to say they are having a hot dinner.
School Sandwiches – to order school sandwiches, it is slightly different to the hot school meals. School sandwiches need to be ordered in advance. The order forms are available in the office and need to be filled in weekly. Each morning when the register is taken your child would need to say they are having school sandwiches.
There is a good choice and it saves you the time and money in organising a packed lunch from home. This isn’t the only benefit – you avoid the horrible task of cleaning out a used lunchbox each evening!

We would love to hear your feedback!
Happy New Year! The children have had a super first day back and have settled into routine brilliantly.
Thank you for supporting us with ensuring children look smart in their school uniforms and that our policy around nail varnish and ‘extreme’ haircuts is followed.
I have had a request from one of the school neighbours asking that our parents do not park on private drives and at all costs avoid blocking drive ways for the homeowners.
We understand that parking around school is tricky, however it isn’t fair for local residents to have their lives affected by living in the location of our school.
I have suggested that residents photograph cars that have parked on their dives and report to the police.
Many thanks for your support in this matter.
