Dear Parents/Carers,

Parents are welcome to attend this trip for a picnic only with their child at 11:30-12:30. If you would like to attend please meet the children at the front of Aston Hall at 11:30. Your child will receive a free packed lunch and must wear school uniform.

Autism Awareness Day

Dear Parents/Carers,

On Wednesday 18th April, we are celebrating an Autism awareness day. During the day, we will be learning all about autism and discussing individual differences. We ask that all children wear either pink or purple on this day as these are the colours of the National Autistic Society. Children do not need to bring in any money for this.

At 9.00am, I will be holding a coffee morning for parents of children who have autism or for any parents who would like to find out more about autism. Please join us. It would be great to see as many parents as possible.

Yours sincerely,

Selma Shazadi

Assistant leader for Inclusion

Important Letter

Dear parents,

You may be aware that there is a leaflet being posted that refers to ‘Punish a Muslim day’.

Understandably this has caused alarm amongst our children and our community. We will be speaking to the children this week to reassure them and this matter has been reported to the police and other authorities.

As with all acts of terrorism I feel that this is intended to spread fear and confusion and to unsettle our community.

Our aim is to keep your children calm and to support you to remain calm whilst the appropriate authorities deal with the matter.

Yours Sincerely,

Mr S Gulzar

Executive Headteacher & CEO

Water Bottles

IMPORTANT

Due to high levels of illness across school we have decided that we will no longer have school water bottles. Please can you ensure that your child is provided with a water bottle that has their name and class clearly labelled on. These are to be taken home each day to be cleaned and filled with water.

Thank you in advance for your support with this matter.

World Maths Day

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are pleased to inform you that we will be celebrating World Maths Day on Monday 12th March at Prince Albert. Right across school we will be learning and enjoying Maths for the whole day. As part of our celebration, we are asking the children to come into school dressed up in an outfit that symbolises Maths.

Please see below for some ideas:

  • They can dress up as their Times Table Rockstar avatar
  • They can wear an outfit that includes numbers
  • They can even add maths to something they already have

We look forward to seeing them dressed up on Monday.

Yours Sincerely,

Mrs N Ahmed

Assistant Head
