    Dear Parents/Carers


    This is our first electronic letter with only paper copies for parents who have specifically requested one or for parents who are still to inform the schools if they prefer electronic copies. Please let your school administrator know if you would prefer to change to an emailed version.


    New School Logo


    During the next couple of weeks we will be asking all the children in the two schools to create a design for the new logo. We are awaiting final confirmation of the new school name before we can ask for the logos to be judged.


    Diamond Jubilee Celebrations


    The staff from the two schools are going to work together to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. On Friday 1st June the two schools will combine on the Ballaquayle site to have a jubilee picnic. Everyone will be asked to dress in red, white and blue. The children will take part in a range of activities ranging from designing a commemorative plate to be created by the Silverdale Pottery, watching a magic show to having a 1950’s PE lesson, plus many more activities.


    We will be sending home a picnic bag for each child to decorate with a jubilee design and to bring it back to school filled with their picnic lunch. There will not be any school dinners that day.


    We are all hoping for a lovely sunny day! If the weather is poor we will have activities on both sites.


    New school uniform


    Representatives of the governing bodies of Ballaquayle and Murray’s Road School have now finalised their decision on the new school uniform for the amalgamated school. These changes will come into place at the start of the autumn term 2012 but I need to remind parents that they have two years in which to change to the new uniform colours (by September 2014).






    The uniform will consist of:-


    Navy sweatshirt or cardigan with logo

    Navy trousers, skirt or pinafore

    Navy and white gingham dress (for the summer term)

    Navy short school trousers (for the summer term)

    Red polo shirt with logo

    Navy or black shoes

    Girls - navy or white socks, navy tights

    Boys - navy socks


    Other uniform items will also be available - navy waterproof jackets with fleece lining/navy woollen hats


    For PE - navy shorts/red or navy t-shirts


    Murray’s Road parents


    Please could I remind parents that if you wish to take your child out of school during the day for a hospital/doctor/dentist appointment you need to bring in either your appointment letter for the administrator to see or put a written request into school to take your child to an appointment. This will ensure that your child’s absence for that period of time is classed as authorised. Children cannot be collected early from school unless they are attending an appointment or have sent in a request for leave of absence in advance which has been granted by the headteacher on the appropriate form.


    Asthma Cards


    As part of accepted good practice. we ask all parents of pupils with asthma to complete a school Asthma Card for their son and/or daughter. The card must be updated following doctor/hospital attendance if there are any changes in the medication. Please contact the school office where your child is based for an Asthma Card. The completed card will have details of the pupil’s current treatment and also what steps to take if they should have an asthma attack at school. The card will help school staff to ensure that pupils with asthma receive the best possible treatment at all times.


    If your child no longer requires an inhaler please complete the slip below. Please can the Asthma Card and slip below be completed and returned to school. Thank you for your co-operation in this important matter.
