SICK CHILDREN!!!

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE

DO NOT SEND IN CHILDREN WHO HAVE VOMITED THE NIGHT BEFORE, OR THAT MORNING – WE HAVE NOWHERE TO ISOLATE THEM IN SCHOOL, AND WE NEED ALL STAFF IN CLASS, NOT SUPERVISING POORLY CHILDREN. THERE IS ALSO A HUGE RISK OF INFECTING OTHER STUDENTS AND STAFF.

YOUR CHILD DEMANDING TO GO TO SCHOOL IS NO EXCUSE FOR SENDING THEM IN SICK, THEY NEED TO STAY AT HOME UNTIL THEY HAVE NOT VOMITED FOR 48 HOURS.

Quiz night – POSTPONED!!

We are very sorry to say we are having to postpone the Quiz Night on Friday 26th January. Whether it is the wrong time of year, or just too cold to venture out in the evening, the response has been very poor.

Hopefully we will be able to try again later in the term.

Observation Days

As our existing parents will remember, all prospective students spend at least two consecutive days in school before a decision is reached as to the suitability of Parayhouse School for their child. As Local Authorities have a deadline for students approaching secondary transfer [15th February] there is a bit of a rush on at the moment!

 

Consequently we have several students booked in between now and half-term, and also in the couple of weeks immediately after the deadline. Some of our younger students can find this unsettling, for which we apologise, but it is the only way of ensuring we can meet each child’s special educational needs.

 

Annual questionnaires

A BIG THANK YOU to all our parents who have returned their questionnaire – we need all questionnaires in by Monday please!

 

LUNCH MENU

Next week we will be on week 1. Lunches cost £3.15per day, this can be paid daily, weekly or termly.  If you wish to pay by online banking please call and we will let you have our banking details.
