July 2018 – Newsletter

Dear Parents/Carers
This is the last newsletter for this academic year. Please read it carefully as it continues very important information. Thank you.

Funding
All the children staying with us in September were given a Parental Agreement to complete and return before the end of term. Only 4 have so far been handed back. If you do not return these within the next 2 weeks we may not be able to claim Early Education Funding for your child. Please give this your immediate attention. For those wishing to claim the extended funding we need confirmation of your code – it will then be necessary for you to re-confirm these yourselves anytime after the 1st August – failure to do so will mean you are charged fully for the Autumn Term.

Leavers Celebration & Sports Day
Invitations are coming out this week for our end of year celebrations. A reminder that Setting closes on Thursday 19th July. We invite all children to join us with their families on Friday 20th July, at 10am near the Sports Pavillion. The morning will consist of games and races for the children, a picnic lunch, our raffle draw, followed by saying goodbye to our leavers at approx. 12.30pm. Please complete the sheet on the desk to confirm your attendance and pick a picnic item to bring and share, before Friday 13th July. Thank you.

Invoices
I will be sending out invoices over the summer for the first half term of Autumn. Please can I remind you that we ask that full payment is made within the first two weeks of each half term, unless other arrangements have been made.

There will be no fee increase for next year, however due to increasing expenses we are forced to add a small cost to Breakfast (£1) and After School (50p) clubs.

Holiday Club
We have had a revamp of the holiday club, to include the following:
Bake off – 31st July & 20th August
Sports & Water Fun – 1st & 6th August
Slime Factory – 2nd & 14th August
Forest Fun – 9th & 21st August
Art Attack – 16th August
We have a few spaces left on these dates, please book by Monday 16th July.

Fundraising
• Don’t forget our Hamper raffle will be held at the Leaver’s Celebration. Members of the Committee will be in Setting to sell tickets over the next 2 weeks.
• Unfortunately, we have not had much response for the donation of bottles for our stall at the Sheep Fair.
• We are hoping to re-surface part of the outdoor area to make it safer for the children and would ask that each family contributes to our fundraising to go towards this provision.

Childrens’ belongings
As the end of Term approaches please empty your child’s drawer and pegs – anything not removed will not be kept for September.

The Setting re-opens on Tuesday 4th September.

Thank you for your continuing support. As always if there is anything you wish to discuss please give us a call or speak to your child’s key person.

Kind regards
Val & Team
