Please find below some important notices about school life:
Friends of Hurst Drive - Fathers' Day Sale - Friday 18 June 2021
On Friday 18 June 2021, during the school day, the Friends of Hurst Drive are putting on a sale to allow children to buy gifts for the important men in their lives. Gifts start at £1 and we recommend you give your child £5 or £10 to spend.
The money raised will go towards further improving our school - for example, the Friends of Hurst Drive have helped to finance the repairs to our adventure playground at the front of the school so you will soon see repaired equipment and new flooring to make it a fun, safe space for the children. We thank you in advance for your support.
Sibling Photographs - Monday 28 June 2021
We have arranged for the photographer from Kittle Photography to return to school on Monday 28 June 2021 to take sibling photographs.
Parents/carers will have received an e-mail from firstname.lastname@example.org, inviting them to book a timeslot for their children to have their photograph taken. If you cannot find the e-mail, please contact the School Office and they will send it to you again.
If you wish to bring a baby, toddler or nursery-aged child to be in the photograph, you must arrive at the School Office at your designated time and take them to the Main Hall where their school-aged siblings will be waiting.
Of course, if your children are all in school, you do not need to come to school for them to have their sibling photograph, but you do still need to book a timeslot.
To be clear, we will only be taking the photographs of siblings whose parent/carer has booked a timeslot.
The booking system will close on Saturday 26 June 2021 at 9:00am.
Learning Support Assistant - September 2021
We are looking to appoint a friendly, hardworking learning support assistant from September 2021. If you, or someone you know, may be interested in applying, please click here. The deadline to apply is Friday 2 July 2021.
Please note, if you require a Breakfast Club session from Monday 28 June onward you must pay the increased charge of £2 per child per day, and you must book the sessions again via the SchoolGateway app as all old bookings under the previous charge have been cancelled.
If you had already booked and paid for sessions for 28/06/21 onward, the Finance Administrator, Mrs Read, has credited your account on SchoolGateway, but you do still need to make the booking.
As a reminder, drop off to Breakfast Club is between 7:45-8:20am, and if you want your child to be given a breakfast, you must drop them off by 8:15am because the staff take all the children outdoors to play shortly after that time.
Year 6 School Trips & Year 6 Prom
Year 6 have the following upcoming school trips:
14/06/21 - Elm Class - Herts Young Mariners Base in Cheshunt
16/06/21 - Apple Class - Herts Young Mariners Base in Cheshunt
22/06/21 - Apple Class & Elm Class - Go Ape in Alexandra Palace
For these trips, please ensure your child brings a water bottle, a healthy packed lunch, a towel (for Herts Young Mariners Base), and sunscreen. The children must also wear non-school uniform, preferably sportswear, for each of these trips.
Regarding the prom, we haven't been informed that a group of parents/carers wish to organise the prom independently and off site, so we will go ahead with making arrangements to hold the prom at school on Friday 9 July 2021, 6:00-8:30pm. We will send out a letter to Year 6 parents/carers with information and how to book and pay for a ticket soon.
Water Bottles and Sunscreen
This is a reminder to all parents/carers that every child requires a water bottle in school that is labelled with their name. We also recommend you put sunscreen on your child before they come to school to protect their skin when they're playing or doing sports outdoors.
