The photographs above illustrate some of the fabulous work that takes place in St Bart’s every day. Well done boys and girls and thank you to your wonderful teachers for helping you create these wonderful pieces.
Thank you to our parents and carers who have supported their children with homework on Glow. It is very important that children access this portal at home as homework will be digitally based for the foreseeable future. Children are all familiar with their passwords and usernames as they regularly access this in ICT time in school.
We had our first virtual Parent Council meeting last night and I am delighted to report that it was a great success. Everyone managed to log on and contribute towards the meeting in order to support our pupils. Discussions took place on topics such as traffic around the school, congestion around the gates and future events in school. I have been in touch with NLC in respect of organising a ‘Walking Bus’ which would mean that children could gather at certain points and be walked to school by NLC’s Active Schools personnel in addition to parent volunteers. It was suggested that perhaps 3 different points in the surrounding area would be appropriate to ask parents to drop off their children so as to avoid traffic build up around the school. Should you wish to be a volunteer, please contact Nicola Rae, our Chair of the Parent Council who will provide you with suitable details. Again, initiatives such as these rely on parent support and the more volunteers that we have, the less demanding this commitment will be. You may only have to volunteer once per week or ever other week, dependent on numbers. Please consider volunteering in order alleviate this potentially challenging situation.
Our Parent Council will notify you via letter with respect to the ‘walking bus’ and other points that are relevant to supporting our pupils and their families. Thank you in advance to our Parent Council members who work hard to support our children. The minutes from our meetings will be uploaded on to our school website. Again, should you wish to join a meeting and contribute to the life of the school, please contact Nicola Rae.
