Whole School Assembly tomorrow – Team 2 leading (if we stay at Alert Level 1)

Our whole school assembly on Friday 19th March at 2pm in the school hall will be lead by Team 2 and you are all welcome to come along. Please note any whole school assemblies will only go ahead if we are at Alert Level 1.

Walking School Bus Meeting

Please join us on THURSDAY 25th MARCH at 9am in the staff room if you are interested in finding out more about the Walking School Bus.

Class emergency kit

In case of emergencies or lockdown each class has an emergency kit which consists of a toilet bucket, toilet paper, gloves,  plastic spoons, cups and water. If you have not sent anything already, to complete the kit can you please send a can of food with a ring pull (something your child likes and would eat!) or a food item that has a long shelf life if your child prefers. We can return the food at the end of the year if you ask your teacher, otherwise it will be donated to the Salvation Army food appeal for Christmas. Thank you for your attention to this matter as we would like to have our kits complete and  ready to go.

Scholastic Book Orders

The last day to place an order from Issue 2 is Tuesday 23rd March.

Board of Trustees meeting

The Board will meet tonight, Thursday 18th March at 7pm in the administration building. Anyone is welcome to come along.

Police Vetting for sports team coaches and managers

Since the Vulnerable Children’s Act came out in 2015 we continually update our procedures and policies around keeping children and young people safe. It is recommended that all sports coaches and managers are police vetted as they have a position of authority over children and are often alone with them. If you are, or will be volunteering to be, a sports coach or manager and you have not already completed a police vet through Glamorgan School in the last 3 years, can you please pop into the office with two forms of identification, one of which must be photo ID (e.g. a drivers licence and passport would be fine). The school will cover the cost of the police vet and the office staff will complete the paperwork required. A police vet lasts for 3 years.
