A message from the Head of School…
It has been another busy couple of weeks at Camblesforth, the children have continued to work hard and show a positive attitude towards their learning.
Dates of events happening in school are on the website and were shared on ParentHub last week so please check what is happening this term. Dates will also be put up on our notice board as parents have said this would also be useful.
Congratulations to our school choir (and Miss Wynn) who had an incredible time at the Young Voices 2020 Concert. This was an amazing experience for all the children involved, they will never forget that they sang alongside Tony Hadley, The Shires and Ruti. With 5031 children singing passionately and sharing their love for music, this made the atmosphere within the arena electrifying!
Thank you to everyone who have brought their children into school on time every day. Children who arrive in school on time do not miss out on any important learning, particularly their start of the day challenges. If you are struggling to get your child in school on time, please let us know so we can work together to rectify this. A member of staff will open the gates no later than 8:45am and they will be locked again at 9:00am. Children will be marked as officially late if they arrive after 9:10am.
We have had another great start to the term at school with children very excited about our new curriculum focus of ‘Up Up and Away’. Each week you should receive regular updates from your child’s teacher about what is happening in their class.
Please check the website on our curriculum page to see further information on what the children will be learning about this term.
Our local residents have once again raised concerns regarding their driveways becoming blocked by people parking while dropping their children before and after school. Recently we have also received complaints that some drivers have been abusive to residents.
We know parking at the front of school is difficult but please can you help us to maintain a good relationship with the community by parking legally and respectfully. (not on double yellow lines, zig zag marked areas or on business premises and across residents’ driveways)
The Police have also received several complaints about this matter and made a visit to the school before Christmas. We discussed how we could work together to ensure the safety of our children and the inconvenience it is causing to residents. We cannot monitor this all the time, however, over the next few weeks there will be occasions when a member of staff will be at the front of the school to offer guidance. We want to ensure that people know where they can park legally and most importantly that our children can walk to and from school safely at these times. The police will also be making spot checks. Thank you so much for your understanding in this matter.
