Website up-dates

Have you had a look at our up-dated website??

There is the 'Class Stories' section which gives details and photographs of the 
latest things that each of our classes have been up to.

Also look at the 'Head's Blog' section. This is my photo diary of things 
happening in school on a day-to-day and week-by-week basis. On the front page 
of the website, in my 'Message from the Head' section, I always tell you what's 
new on the web - so log on and have a look!!

Building Work

If you remember, on Newsletter 21, I told you about the proposed building work 
being carried out this year. Schools are given a 'pot' of money which can only 
be spent on computer hardware and buildings. It is called DFC (Devolved Formula 
Capital) money and is 'ring-fenced' so that we cannot spend it on anything 
else, i.e. books, extra teaching assistant hours etc.

So far we have had the library refurbished, with new lighting, new doors and a 
new carpet - and, of course, we have also had the Trim Trail installed. (We're 
just waiting for the rubber flooring to arrive.)

Our next project is to have a drainage system installed into the school field. 
This work will hopefully start a week next Monday (24th May) and will take 
about 3 weeks to complete.

The unfortunate news is that we then cannot use the field for about 6 months, 
whilst everything settles and the grass re-grows. This will mean that the 
children will not be able to play on the field for the summer months and I'm 
afraid that there will be no Sports Day this year. I know this is a shame - 
but, looking ahead, the long term picture means that the field will be 
available for use all year round!!

Whilst the drainage work is taking place, much of the bottom car park will be 
out of use. Please therefore make sure that you don't park in the top staff car 
park to pick up or drop off children, as it will be full of staff cars. I know 
that I keep asking for this - but one or two parents / carers still seem to use 
the staff car park instead of parking on Pope Lane.

Yours sincerely

Mr S B Smith


Did you know...

You may think that managing 90% attendance is a good thing!! However, if your 
child does only attend school 90% of the time, this is still well below the 
National requirements - and 90% attendance actually means missing one half of a 
school day every week!!

FRIENDS OF BROAD OAK PRIMARY SCHOOL - Registered Charity No. 1082746


A big THANK YOU to the parents and friends of Broad Oak who attended the Jamie

it was a super evening. Well done and thank you to Gemma Baron who organised 
and ran the event - earning some well needed money for our school funds.

It's disco time again and, as before, tickets will be sold on the door priced 
at £2 each. Refreshments will be available.

Children MUST be collected by a responsible adult at the end of the disco and

number has changed recently or an alternative is to be used on the evening.
