Newsletter for November 2022


KRIII Newsletter – Wednesday 9th November 2022


Good morning to all of our parents, families and friends -


During a half term when so many families have been dealing with tummy bugs, chicken pox and high temperatures, I hope you're all well  At the moment, a number of staff members have also been hit with the stomach flu - myself included - and have had to stay at home until they're completely clear for 48 hours. Please make sure you keep your child at home until they've had 48 hours with no sickness or diarrhoea before you send them back into school, so we have a chance of breaking the cycle of reinfection. 


If you have to keep your child at home with you for this, or any other reason, it's really important that you let us know on the first day of absence and keep us informed throughout. Very often, we'll ask you for medical evidence - just as an example, this could be a medicine bottle with your child's name on it and the same date as the absence, or a record of calls made to your medical practice. If you're not sure, call and speak to our office staff - they'll be happy to help.



'Layer Up to Power Down'!

On Thursday afternoon this week, we'll be sharing a special assembly with the children about a new energy idea called 'Layer Up'.

To mark the week's focus on climate change in the news, and to give the children a chance to have an impact themselves, we're asking them all to bring extra layers of clothing in this Friday.

We'll be turning the school heating down just a couple of degrees, knowing that the children will be dressed warmly for the day.

So please get your best jumpers, scarves and hats ready for Friday - and we look forward to seeing the woolly fashion show then!


As always, please get in touch if you have any questions, comments or concerns - and a reminder that if you change your contact details, or the details of your emergency contact, it's really important that you let us know straight away. You can drop in to the office, or send us an email via the form below, but please let us know as soon as the details change.


Many thanks -


Ms Harrison (Headteacher)
