Plastic bags

On Friday 23rd November, Year 2 will be taking their Year 1 folders home. We would appreciate if each child could bring in a plastic bag so that they can take these.

Thank you again for your continued support,

Year 2 team

Anti-Bullying 2018

On Monday 12th November 2018 Avenue will be celebrating Anti-Bullying Day. It’s a very important part of our calendar and, to show our support for the cause, we will be taking part in Odd Socks Day! We ask that children come to school in odd socks and we will educate them about the reasons through assembly. Please read the information attached to further your own understanding.

Anti-Bullying 2018 – Odd Socks Day!

Card Ban

There has been a persistent problem in the playground with trading cards; for example, children swap the cards and then decide they want them back or lose them completely.  This is causing great upset amongst the children and is very difficult to resolve as it is only word of mouth, they are not identifiable as anyone’s!

So that the school can spend more time encouraging positive play and supporting friendships, the school has decided these cards will be banned.  This means that children with cards will have them taken away and returned at the end of the day.  Please support us with this decision and do not allow your child to bring them into school.

This is a permanent, school-wide ban and it will be actioned consistently in all year groups.

Please see below some examples of the types of card that are now banned:

N.B. These are examples and it is not an exhaustive list. All cards of this nature will be confiscated.
