Newsletter for 19th March 2024

Newsletter 19th March 2024

Dear parents, carers, families and friends,

We’re nearly at the end of the Spring term – the year is going by so quickly! – so the first point in this newsletter is a reminder that we’re in school this Friday (March 22nd) and then the school will be closed for the Easter break until Monday 8th April.

You might find it helpful to subscribe to the calendar – just click on this section at the top of every calendar page:


If your child is poorly:

Another reminder – it’s really important that you get in touch with us if your child is away because they’re poorly. You can message us on Weduc/ReachMoreParents straight away, which many of you do. Some parents like to phone and leave a voicemail. That’s fine too. Please make sure that you let us know somehow – it’s a serious worry if we don’t hear from you!

Authorising absences:

Some parents complete forms from the office to let us know that they’re thinking of going away during term time. You’ll know already that, for it to be authorised, this absence would have to be for an exceptional reason. If there’s a way that the absence could have been shorter or taken during a school holiday, it’s very unlikely that it will be authorised. If your child is of compulsory school age, the absence would incur a fine for both parents.

On a happier note, we’ve shared information on Weduc just now about a Holiday Club taking place over Easter at Caldecote Primary School. I hope this is useful to you – and that there are still places available if you try to book!

School Photos:

Again, the office has sent out information about this on Weduc already, but a reminder that the photos are being taken on Friday. All children will have their photo taken, and the leavers’ photo will also be taken on that day. And if you’d like a photo of family/children together, the information you need is here:



This is a big priority for the school! We’re taking the opportunity to celebrate really great writing in our Celebration Assembly this week. I hope we’ll be able to send home news that we celebrated your child’s super work on Friday! 😊

Parents’ questionnaires:

We lots of great feedback from parents in our parents’ evening questionnaires. Thank you so much for so many lovely comments! We had 127 questionnaires returned and every single one said that your child is doing well at King Richards 😊

Quite a few parents weren’t sure about the class pages on the school website, or only use the website to collect newsletters. You might find these pages helpful:

Last of all – our curriculum page, which gives you all sorts of information about what your child is learning through the year.


I hope all of this was helpful – as always, please get in touch if you have any questions, comments or concerns – and a reminder to update your contact details at the bottom of this page if they’ve changed. Thank you!

Ms Harrison (Headteacher)
