Current Year 6 NHS Healthly Child Team Questionnaire
Please return the Year 6 Health Questionnaire after half term and read the accompanying information on children questionnaires. There is an opt out form if you do not wish your child to complete the questionnaire in school.
Reminders for after half term
Please name your child’s clothes; particularly sweatshirts and cardigans.
Your child should keep their PE kit in school for the week and this should include a plain white t shirt, black shorts and trainers for outdoor PE. Swimming continues for Y1 upwards.
Please ensure your child has a change of shoes for indoors/outdoors so that our carpeted areas of school remain clean.
Whilst our children have lots of areas of shade in which to spend outdoor time, it is also good to send a hat on sunny days and to apply sun cream before your child comes to school.
Headlice in school
We have had some cases of headlice in school. Please be vigilant about checking and treating your child’s hair over the half term break.

Friends of the School
Parent led Cookery Club – needs more parents to help after school on Thursday; this could be on a rota and is great fun with new recipes to learn!
