Last newsletter before the half term break – it seems to have gone really quickly this half term. We’ve had a good half term in school and children have settled in really quickly. You will receive a class update newsletter today also and there will be an opportunity to have a look at some photos from things your child’s class have been up to recently. This is available through the class pages link on the school website. Have a great half term everyone – see you when we come back!
A reminder that school is closed on Monday 31st October for staff training. Children return to school on Tuesday 1st November.

Building Materials on the Road
We have been made aware that some building materials (bits of wood, nails, etc) have been found in Redlake. Please be aware of this when travelling around that area.
You can see this week’s copy of Pedmore Thrive here.
Secondary School Applications

Earrings and Other Jewellery
A reminder that jewellery is not allowed to be worn when children are taking part in P.E. – all watches and earrings have to be removed. This includes earring retainers. Watches and earrings are also the only jewellery allowed to be worn at school at any time.
Parents and children who have been involved in some research into online habits have spoken really positively about what’s been involved and how it’s helped with their discussions at home. If you would like to be involved, keep a look out for information coming your way soon.
