A Day in the Life of Harbury School – film

Dear Parents,
It’s the last day of term and we just wanted to share with you, the amazing success that we have all worked so hard to achieve recently.

In the last month, we have raised a total of £5,000 for Harbury Primary School. We are absolutely over the moon and you should be too. We really couldn’t do it without all the help and support from parents, grandparents, guardians, teachers, local businesses and the wider community. THANK YOU!

Have a wonderful Summer and we will see you in September.

RECEPTION OUTDOOR AREA MINI-MAKEOVER!
CAN YOU HELP?
The Reception outdoor area is looking very tired and it is increasingly difficult to make it work effectively for the children who use it. Read more…

Second-hand School uniform wanted.
Harbury Primary School and Church are collecting non-logo school uniform to donate to Carriers of Hope, Coventry.

Carriers of Hope are a charity who support families with refugee or asylum seeker status. Read more here…

Lego WeDo
On Wednesdays, our class, Year 5 have been working with Lego WeDo in the computer suite. We have been building models and programming them to bring them to life. In this video you can see how two groups worked together to build a footballer and a goalie. As you can see, we had a ball!

Earthworms
Each Friday, under the dirrection of Mrs Crowder and with the help of members of staff, different groups of children stay behind after school to do a little gardening. They sew seeds, plant seedlings, weed and tidy to keep our school gardens and planting areas looking great. The fantastic, spacious, new greenhouse is being put to great use!

Red Nose Day
The children have asked if we could have a non-uniform day on Friday 24th March (this Friday) in aid of Red Nose Day.
We all think that it would be a wonderful idea so if your child would like to come into school wearing casual clothing on Friday please send them in with £1 and we will donate the money to the Red Nose Day charity.

Open Meeting about Stowe Valley MAT: (Multi Academy Trust)
For those that were unable to come to the meeting on Tuesday 17th January, we have uploaded the presentaion used on the evening, a letter from the Chair of Governors, a direct link to Southam College Admissions Criteria and an example letter of complaint.

The Governors will be objecting to the proposed criteria on the following basis:
We disagree with the proposed admissions policy because we believe the selection criteria should be based on distance from Southam College. One way of achieving this is for all schools that are currently in the priority area to be included on the list of Designated Feeder Schools.

The closing date for the consultation is January 31, 2017

The most powerful way to object to the admissions criteria at this stage of the process is to write a letter, in your own words, as to why the proposal is unfair to the children attending Harbury C of E Primary School. I have enclosed an example letter for you to use/alter and post it to the address below or bring it to school for Mrs Wilson to give to Southam College.

Internet safety
I am sure there are several households who are starting 2017 with new pieces of technology in them after Christmas and so alongside many recent headlines nationally, it seems a good time to remind everyone of some key points in relation to online safety. The Local Authority has published the list below of key reminders as well as some important websites to be aware of for support. Online safety is incredibly important and we would remind everyone that should you have any concerns, please come and talk to us about them and we will do everything possible to help. As well as including it in our weekly
Computing lessons, we will as always put a particular focus on this work in February for Safer Internet Day.

You will find some helpful websites on our Internet Safety page which will help keep your children safe when they are online.
