Over the summer we have few exciting projects happening.
- The wild area will have a secure fence added so that this space can be developed into a specific ‘Forest School Zone’. The growing beds and wild area will all become one fenced in zone. From September children in EYFS and KS1 will access this provision run by a qualified Level 3 Forest Schools practitioner. More information will be sent out in September.
- A new Inventory system will be installed in the main entrance of the school. This will allow visitors to sign in and out of the school electronically.
- We are thrilled to have our largest Reception class in 5 years starting in September. This is great news for us as a school.
- The Portacabin is being developed into the Hub. This will also provide us with a teaching space for Art and Music.
From September we will no longer be using a bloomz as a communication tool. All messages will be sent via Parent Hub which is a free app that helps us keep you up to date with what is happening at school. We will also continue to post information onto the website. Instructions
- Download the Parent Hub app from your app store (iPhone or Android).
- Click on “Join a School” type in CamblesSchool.
- Verify yourself using your mobile phone number. Please note; this is linked to the mobile number you have provided to school. If this needs to be changed or updated at any time please contact the school office asap.
Site safety – Important
We continually review our policies and procedures to ensure that we are always providing the best experience and safety for our children. Therefore, with effect from September the gates outside the School Office will remain locked until 8.40am. This ensures that staff can provide supervision for all children while they are on site. Children will then go directly into their classroom from 8:50am where their class teacher will be present to greet them. The gates will then be relocked at 9am. Children will have to enter through the front of school after this time. Registers will close at 9:05am.
Changes to the school day
In September we will be moving morning break time to 10:45am for KS1-KS2. We will also be introducing regular skipping to support our children’s physical and mental well being.
School Meal Bookings
To help us ensure children get the meal that they want and to assist the school cook with her preparation, it is important that parents book their child’s meal on ParenPay in advance. This is also the case if your child is entitled to Universal Free School meals in Reception to Year 2 and Free School Meals in Years 3-6. Meals must be prebooked no later than midnight the night before. We do understand that there may be instances where this occasionally may not be possible so if this is the case please contact the school office. If you have not booked your child’s meal and have also not provided a packed lunch you will be called on the day and asked to bring one in.
Wrap around care
We will continue to offer a drop in system for Breakfast Club next year. However, bookings for After School club must be made on ParentPay before midnight the night before. This ensures that we can organise adequate staffing. Where we can we will always try to support parents with their Wrap around care needs, so if you have any problems please call Mrs Jackson in the school office from 8:30am-2:30pm.
Uniform updates for September
In the interest of safety we prohibit the wearing of jewellery, other than a watch. Children must not wear dangling earrings or necklaces to school. Simple studs only can be worn to preserve pierced ears and children must be able to remove these independently. Children are not allowed to swim or take part in PE or Games while wearing jewellery or earrings. For health and safety reasons school staff are not allowed to take out, or put jewellery into piercings. On swimming, PE and games days, parents are respectfully asked to remove all Jewellery before the school day . Thanks for your cooperation in this matter.
We would like to share with you the results from EYFS, Year 1 (phonics screening), KS1 and KS2 assessment data. Do look at how well we compare to the national average and the North Yorkshire average when these are released.
