DRAGON'S ROAR- January
We hope that you have all had a good start to 2019! The children are already busy with learning new things! Please take a look at our blogs to see what’s been happening!
You may remember that we are having a focus on attendance at the moment, specifically unauthorised attendance and persistent absence (below 90%). Please take a look at the following link where there is the criteria for ‘exceptional circumstances’ when requesting time off school. https://www.keyworth.notts.sch.uk/attachments/download.asp?file=40&type=pdf - ask if you have any questions about it. Please remember, the law states that you do not have the right to take your child out of school for holidays during term time. There is a huge amount of research that shows a positive link between good attendance and children achieving their potential. Poor attendance has a serious impact on education and reduces a child's life chances.
Please can you remind your children that they shouldn’t be using their scooter or bike once they arrive on the school premises. There have been a few near misses recently! Also, please remember that we have the bike racks where scooters and bikes should be kept until the end of the school day. The school gates are locked between 9:15am and 3:00pm so, although we can’t take responsibility for them, they are as safe as they can be.
Friends of KPNS
Thank you to the Friends for organising such a wonderful Christmas Fair; what a lovely way to get in to the Christmas spirit! Thanks to all who were able to attend or supported in a different way. We’re pleased to let you know that it raised £874 for the school.
Children are well on their way to achieving their silver award. It has also been fantastic to see so many more children attend the Reading Lair in the morning before school starts.
