A message from Mrs Mooney

Dear Parents and Carers,

On Wednesday evening we were thrilled to welcome Elaine Halligan, author of ‘My child is different’ to Oatlands. She gave an inspirational talk sharing her own experiences as a parent as well as providing reassurance and parenting skills to help raise your child’s self-esteem. We have attached the hand out which accompanied the talk and would urge you to read her amazing book.

I understand that parents are very keen to start volunteering in school, which is fantastic thank you. Year 2 teachers have put lists at the year 2 entrance with slots where they need parental support. Reception and Year 1 sign-up sheets will be available at the volunteer meeting at 2.15pm on Wednesday 3rd October. DBS forms can be completed ahead of the meeting and volunteers for all year groups can begin the week beginning Monday 8th October. Thank you in advance for your support.

We have our first ‘Let’s talk’ coffee morning on Wednesday 26th. This will be a great opportunity to meet other parents, off load and enjoy a coffee and cake.

Please remember to return your reply slips for our curriculum evenings, which start with Reception on Tuesday 25th September. As we will be providing a lot of information at these evenings, we would ask that you do not bring children.

Please can I remind parents that scooters and bikes are not allowed in the playground at any time. They should be left in the scooter/bike park when collecting children.

I hope you have a fun weekend.

Mrs Tanya Mooney
