Parent Letter September 2012



Hello everyone and Welcome back to a new term at Sands.


Irwin and crew have been busy over the summer and the school and grounds are looking wonderful for all their hard work.


We start the year with the challenge of not having Sean in school as he prepares for the next steps in dealing with the after effects of his liver transplant. We have been busy interviewing candidates for the History teaching post and are pleased to say that we have appointed Kate who will be teaching the O groups on Mondays and Wednesdays. Huw and Martin will be picking up some of Sean’s non-teaching roles around school and Donald (chair of the Governors) will be helping out with the policies and paperwork.


Sadly Meryl is still off sick and we do not know when she is likely to be able to return.  In the meantime Jenny is very happy to be covering teaching English to the Y groups again and Ceri will be covering Drama. Ceri and Martin have some exciting plans for a Christmas production and a message has already been sent out for B tech music and drama group to visit the Northcott theatre on Tuesday 2nd October.


Nathan has asked to let you all know that the children are registered on to the My Maths website

Login code is still [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][sands]

Each child then has his or her individual password which will remain the same as before, if you need reminding or if you are new, you can contact Angie or Helen in the office and we will tell you.
