  1. School car park

We are still working through a few teething troubles and are continuing the closure of the car park. Please spare a few minutes to give your views on the car park via our questionnaire https://forms.gle/7sTenoybPR2jCQ4k8 The car park will remain closed until we can assess the results of the questionnaire.

  1. Parents’ Evening Booking

For our October parent meetings (Mon 11th & Mon 18th October) parents will be able to book their appointment times with their child’s class teacher. A link will be sent out via email and text. Parents will then be able to decide on the time and day they see the class teacher. All appointments will take place in school face to face. Further info will follow early next week.

  1. Facebook changes

As a school we moving away from our closed Facebook group onto an open Facebook page. Please like the new page https://www.facebook.com/Mortimer-Primary-School-273525164461401

We now use Facebook as an information sharing platform only.  

  1. Reading Newsletter

Mrs Douglas has been busy again…check out the very first reading newsletter (As attached) and all that is happening.

Also check out our 1st Reading Champions of the year! https://mortimerprimary.co.uk/reading-champions/

  1. Harvest Festival

We will be holding the Harvest Festival for our children in the Infant and Junior classes on the morning of Thursday 7th October.

Following the service food parcels, made up from Harvest donations which are displayed at the Harvest Festival, will be distributed to local senior citizens, and local food banks and charities.

We hope that each child in our Nursery and Infant classes (EYFS/KS1) could bring in a small quantity of either FRESH PRODUCE (fruit, vegetables, etc) or TINNED OR PACKET PRODUCE.  It would be very helpful if these gifts were brought into school on Monday 4th, Tuesday 5th or Wednesday 6th.

Our junior children (KS2) will be asked to make a donation, proceeds of which will be used to help a good cause overseas. It would be very helpful if these donations were brought into school on Monday 4th, Tuesday 5th or Wednesday 6th.
