Welcome Back – Term 2

Horsmonden Primary Academy Logo

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome back everyone – I hope you’ve all had a great half term and managed to stay healthy. I am delighted to inform you that attendance today is good and as far as I am aware there are no COVID cases currently within our school community. For this reason, I am writing with a few updates regarding events for this term.

Remembrance Service

On Thursday 11th November at 10:45am, we will be holding our own Remembrance Service by the War Memorial in front of the Social Club which will be led by Phil Staddon. Parents are welcome to walk with their child’s class and attend the service if you wish, but please liaise with your child’s class teacher beforehand.

From tomorrow, Year 6 children will be selling items on behalf of the Poppy Appeal at the end of the school day. Items are priced between 50p and £1.50. All donations will go straight to the Poppy Appeal run by the Royal British Legion.

Parent Partnership Afternoon

The rescheduled Parent Partnership afternoon will take place on Monday 15th November from 2:15pm.

The aim of the afternoon is for you to meet your child’s class teacher, see their classroom environment and look through their work. It also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the year ahead.

On arrival, please go to the main office where you will need to sign in. I am kindly asking all parents to wear a face covering and sanitise hands on entry. Please feel free to drop in at any time between 2:15pm and 3pm and move around the school freely. Mrs Mcleish, Vice Principal, and I will both be available in the school hall should you wish to speak to one of us.

To give me an idea of numbers, please contact the school office in advance if you are planning to attend.

Bangers and Bingo

This will take place on Thursday 18th November 3:30pm – 5:00pm.
