Parents Evenings: Week Commencing 16th October
As of Monday morning your child's class will have it's Parents Evening Sign Up sheets displayed ready for you to select a slot. This will be your opportunity to find out how your child is getting on in school. These will be located in the usual positions - Reception (outside Wren & Robin's Classrooms), Year One (at the top of the corridor from the side playground), Year Two (entrance foyer noticeboard).

We currently have incidences of threadworms in school. A threadworm infection is passed from person to person by swallowing threadworm eggs. Eggs can be transferred to your mouth or on to food and objects such as toys and utensils. If someone else touches a contaminated object or eats contaminated food and then touches their mouth they'll become infected. They can be transferred to anything you touch including bed sheets and clothes, towels and flannels, children's toys, toothbrushes, furniture or kitchen and bathroom surfaces. Threadworms infections most commonly affect young children because they often forget to wash their hands and share toys with other children. Those people who are in close contact with someone with a threadworm infection also have a high risk of infection. If you think your child/family members has a threadworm infection please seek your GP's or pharmacist's advice. To treat threadworms successfully, all household members must be treated even if they don't have symptoms. Check out the NHS choices website at http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Threadworms/Pages/Treatment.aspx for further advice on measures to take to maintain good hygiene and reduce the likelihood of reinfection.
