HEADTEACHER'S MESSAGE

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

At this morning’s assembly I had the pleasure of announcing our student leadership team, house captains, monitors and school council - please see below. They have been elected by their peers to represent them and their views. I am confident that they will excel in their roles and rise to the challenge of their new responsibilities. I look forward to working together with them in developing opportunities for our whole school.

It was lovely to see so many of our parents at the reading morning yesterday. This was a perfect opportunity to read a good story together. Reading opens up a world of imagination and possibilities and it is important that we encourage a love of reading in our children - so thank you for joining us.

I wish to remind parents of the procedures that need to be followed with regards to reporting an absence and medication:  

  • Absence - phone the school on 02077235911 to report your child’s absence. You must phone the school each day that your child is absent. Some pupils travel to school on their own so it is important that we know which pupils to expect each day.  If your child is absent for 3 days or more you may be asked to provide a doctor’s note to substantiate the absence. 

  • Medication -  school staff can only administer medicine that has been prescribed by a doctor, is in date and submitted with a completed Medication Consent Form (available from the reception office).  Please do not send children to school with medicine i.e. paracetamol/ibuprofen in their school bags. 

Pupil data collection forms were sent home this week.  Thank you if you have already completed and returned them to school. If not, please take the time to read through them and amend or add any information as necessary so that we can update our school records.  It is vitally important that the school holds up to date contact information and medical information for all children. Once completed, please return to the school office along with the free school meal application. I appreciate your assistance with this. All forms must be returned to school by Friday 21st September.  If all your forms (including the free school meal form) are returned by the 21st, your child will receive a free St. Edward's school cap.

Parents of Year 6 pupils need to have their secondary school applications submitted via eAdmissions by October 31st.  Please see your Local Authority website for information on secondary schools and details on how to complete your application. If there are any year 6 parents who have not met with Miss O’Connor to discuss their application, please contact Mrs Gashi to arrange a convenient time.

If your child was born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015, he or she will be starting reception in primary school from September 2019.  The eAdmissions website is open for you to start your online application. You will need to submit your application by the 15 January 2019.   You can find more information here.

If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016, they will be eligible to start Nursery in September 2019. Please collect a form from the school office or visit our admissions page to download a form and read our school admission policy.

Piano Lessons - while all spaces are currently full, please inform the school office if you are interested in your child receiving piano tuition in school during class time at a cost of £10/half hour. This will enable us to assess the demand to enable future provision.

Our Chess club providers have had to move the club from a Tuesday to a Thursday. If anyone is already enrolled in Chess club and can not attend on a Thursday, please let the school office or Miss Bradley know and a full refund will be arranged.

Year 5 children are having swimming lessons for PE this term at Moberley and both boys and girls are required to wear swimming caps. Moberley have kindly made an offer of discounted swimming caps at a cost of £1.50. If your child is still needing a cap, please send them with £1.50 to take to their next swimming lesson (Monday - class 12 and Tuesday - class 11).

On Monday our year 6 children are setting off on their 3 day residential trip to Sayers Croft. This will be an amazing time for them - full of adventures and new experiences. We wish them a safe and happy stay!

Have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes,

Miss Clare O’Connor

HEADTEACHER'S MESSAGE

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

Welcome back to the start of a new school year and a special welcome to all of the new families that have joined us; we look forward to getting to know you and your children during your time at St. Edward’s. 

Our new soft start to the school day has been very successful for the children as they have been benefiting from a purposeful start to their mornings.  I wish to thank our parents for their support and co-operation in helping us implement this new procedure.  Staff will be on the pavement from Monday morning to help with the transition and EYFS parents will continue to enter through the small gate throughout the year.

I do just wish to take the opportunity to remind our families that we must please be aware of and considerate to those who live in our local community by not creating too much congestion in the area around the school.  If your children use scooters/bikes on the commute to and from school, I ask that they please be extra considerate to other pedestrians and local residents. 

Congratulations to our school council who worked hard last year to receive funding for our "Green Screen".   The installation will be completed this week and we know that the children will benefit from the reduced air pollution and greater security in the playground.  Thank you to Westminster City Council for funding this project. 

Our new school caters, Principals have been cooking some delicious meals for our children and staff.  The new menu can be found below.  The cost of a school meal has remained the same at £1.90 per day and this is payable via ParentPay.  Please do inform the school office in advance of any changes from school meals to packed lunch or vice versa.  A reminder to parents of children who have progressed into year 3, school meals have to be paid for unless you are in receipt of Free School Meals.  If you wish to apply for free school meals please visit the Westminster City Council website for more information and forms are obtainable from the school office.  Children are welcome to try out our new menu for a week at a time, without having to commit to a term.  A taster afternoon will be scheduled for parents in the near future.

Pupil data collection forms will be sent out for all children next week.  Please take the time to read through them and amend or add any information as necessary so that we can update our school records.  It is vitally important that the school holds up to date contact information and medical information for all children. Once completed, please return to the school office along with the free school meal application. I appreciate your assistance with this. All forms must be returned to school by Friday 21st September.  If your forms are returned by the 21st, your child will receive a free St. Edward's school cap.

After school club letters have been sent home.  Please follow the booking instructions and keep a note of the dates that the clubs are running.  There has been a change to the Art Club (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) start date - the first session will now be on Tuesday 18th September and not the 11th September and the cost will be £20.  Apologies for any inconvenience caused.  Unfortunately, due to an issue with the providers, you will not be able to sign up for kwik cricket and dodgeball this week.  We are looking at an alternate provider and will let you know as soon as it has been arranged.

Curriculum parent meeting details can be found below in the Dates for your Diary section. These are an opportunity to see what your child will be learning in school for the next term and also a chance to meet your child's class teacher.  I hope you will be able to attend.

On Thursday 13th September from 9:00-9:30 am class teachers will be hosting a Parent Reading Morning.  Parents are invited into their child's classroom to read with their child, and see their child's new classroom. We look forward to seeing you there.

Our year 5 children will be going swimming this term - class 11 on Mondays and class 12 on Tuesdays.  This is a fantastic opportunity for children to develop confidence in the water in a safe and professionally supervised environment.  Please make sure that your child has the full and correct swimming kit in school on the day.  Swimming is a compulsory and children will only be excused with a valid doctor's note.

Parents of Year 5 pupils need to have their secondary school applications submitted via eAdmissions by October 31st.  Please see your Local Authority website for information on secondary schools and details on how to complete your application.

Mrs Moon and I value your continued support, and look forward to an exciting and successful year ahead.

Have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes,

Miss Clare O’Connor

HEADTEACHER'S MESSAGE

Dear Children, Parents, Carers,  Staff and Governors,

Another successful year draws to a close. It is amazing how much has been achieved by the children, staff, parents and governors in one year. The achievements extend from the academic, to the sporting and the creative arts and to the numerous fun and fundraising exploits of our PTA. We achieve so much because we work together as a team and this is one of the greatest strengths of St. Edward's.

We bid a fond farewell to our Year 6 children who will be starting secondary school in September.  It has been a pleasure and delight watching them develop into responsible young people.  I hope they look back at their time at St. Edward's with fondness. I am proud of them all and wish them good luck in the future.  Year 6, always remember the values you have been taught at St. Edward's and remember: 'To help one person to grow is to help to build the World'.  Please come back to visit us when you can.

We also say goodbye to Miss Wilson, Miss Kremer and Miss Barbe.  I am sure you all join me is expressing our thanks and in wishing them every success and blessing for the future! 

This week children got to meet their new teachers and spend time in their future classrooms. Our teachers are very excited to get to know your children and look forward to teaching them next academic year.

Our PTA have worked tirelessly throughout the year and have provided some of the year's highlights - summer fair, christmas fair and summer party.  The hot weather inspired them to hold ice lollies sales last week which raised a fantastic £120.61!  The work that our PTA do is invaluable and enriches our children's education as well as strengthening the St. Edward's community. Thank you for your ongoing support and the generous donations.

I  wish all staff, parents and children a very enjoyable and safe holiday period.  I look forward to seeing all of the children back in school on Wednesday 5th September at 8:40am.  Please see below for a reminder about our 'soft start' to the school day that we will be implementing as from September.

Best wishes,

Miss Clare O'Connor

 


INFORMATION FOR 2018/19

A ‘SOFT START’ FOR THE DAY – WEDNESDAY 5TH SEPTEMBER!

From September, we will be starting each day with a ‘Soft Start’.  This means when your child arrives at school they will be able to go straight to class where they will have the opportunity to organise themselves for the day and get ready for their learning. They will have time to put their bags and coats away independently, organise their book bags, homework or equipment and settle themselves to a quiet activity ready for registration. Research has shown that this approach has a positive impact on children’s readiness for learning at the start of the school day.  The school gates will open at 8:40 am.  KS1 and KS2 children will enter through the large gate in the KS2 playground and EYFS will enter through the main gate.  An adult from each year group team will be available to take messages from parents at each gate.  For children in Nursery and Reception, we ask that parents stay and support their child to settle into class for the first 10 minutes of the day for the first week.  End of day procedures will remain the same. At 3:25 pm the gates will open and parents will be able to pick their children up from the playground.  We are looking forward to a calm and purposeful start to the day.

HEADTEACHER'S MESSAGE

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

As we approach our final week of this academic year I wish to extend my thanks and gratitude to all our families for their continued support and co-operation.  St. Edward's is a truly wonderful school and that is all down to our hard working students, dedicated staff and supportive families.

It is also the time of year when we say goodbye to members of staff who are leaving and I take this opportunity wish Miss Wilson, Miss Kremer and Miss Barbe a fond farewell.  I am sure you will join me in wishing them every success and good luck for their future endeavours and thanking them for all that they have done for St. Edward's.

Please see below our staffing structure for the 2018/19 academic year.  Children will be meeting their future teachers and spending time in their new classrooms next week. 

As of September there will be a change in the morning routine at St. Edward's - I am introducing a 'soft start' day.  Please read below for further details on the dropping off procedure in the mornings.  I am sure that you will agree that this will make for a much better and efficient start to the school day which will benefit our children.  I look forward to your full co-operation.

This week our Year 6 pupils put on a fantastic end of year production - Street Child.  They have been rehearsing hard and it definitely paid off as they put on a brilliant show enjoyed by all who attended.  It is a wonderful memory that they will be able to take with them as they move on to their new schools.  Well done, Year 6 - I am very proud of you!  A big thank you to Mrs Pini, Mrs Wright and Ms Paul for their direction and support.

End of year reports will be sent home next week.  Please read these carefully and discuss them with your children.  Also, remember to keep up reading and Mathletics during the long summer holidays so that your children have a head start for the new academic year in September.

A last appeal from our PTA - they are looking for volunteers to help out on Wednesday 18th July at 9:00am  with various tasks.  Please contact Bernice Hope at stedwardscpspta@yahoo.co.uk if you are able to assist.

School finishes for children at 1:30pm on Friday 20th July.  School reopens for children on Wednesday the 5th September.  Please make sure your children are at school on this day and plan your holidays accordingly.  Our new term dates can be found below.

Have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes,

Miss C O'Connor

HEADTEACHER'S MESSAGE

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

A very big thank you to everyone who made our PTA Summer Fair such a successful event - whether helping prepare or just coming along to enjoy the day.  Our PTA Summer Fair managed to raise £2,472.73 - a fantastic amount of funds that will go a long way towards providing educational and fun opportunities for our children.  The St. Edward's community spirit shone through at our Summer Fair and it would not have been possible without the support and generosity of all our families - so once again, thank you.

It's important that our children feel happy with their achievements and have photographs and films of their special moments. Family and friends also want to be able to share the successes of their children when they have been part of a special event or activity. However, it's also important to be aware of child protection and safeguarding issues when people are taking photos or filming at events.  Please remember that any photographs or recordings you take at school events (e.g. assembly and Sports Day) are for personal use only.  For safeguarding reasons, these photos/clips are not to be shared or published on social media or elsewhere online.  I wish to also remind parents that taking photographs in the school playground is strictly prohibited.  I thank you for your co-operation and understanding in this very important matter.

It is encouraging to see that so many of our children use bicycles and scooters to get to school - it is a good way to keep fit and kinder to our environment.  However, our playground can be very busy in the morning and at home time, so for health and safety reasons, I ask that bikes and scooters be walked through the playground and not ridden.  They can be safely stored behind the FS1 railings.

We have been experiencing unusually hot weather and I can not stress enough how important it is for your child to be wearing sun screen, a sun hat and to bring an extra bottle of water to school.  I have noticed a number of children who have been coming to school unprepared for the heat especially when attending trips and doing PE.  We have quite a few outings and outdoor events planned for next week so please make sure that your child is properly protected against the sun.

Next Friday is our annual Summer Party which is kindly organised by our PTA.  It promises to be a fun filled afternoon with music, games and entertainment for all the school to enjoy.  

Have a lovely weekend!

Best wishes,

Miss C O'Connor

This week, representatives from each class and Miss Jamieson met with the program team to discuss the new Marylebone Library and Seymour Leisure Centre. The children drew and discussed what they would like the new library to look like. They discussed some important points such as: 

·         the type of books they enjoy reading

·         what they like to learn about in a library

·         the importance of IT facilities to them in a library

·         the sort of tables/chairs they like to sit at

·         whether they see the library as a place to meet their friends.

The children look forward to seeing their ideas at the new library in two years time!

Our year 3 bakers!

This week and last Year 3 have been working hard at their D and T project of bread making! They have been learning the skills and then using them to design and make bread fit for the queen. They have mostly enjoyed tasting it!

Our Art Club children designed colourful aprons to take home.  I am sure they will enjoy using them in the kitchen!
