Weekly Parentmail W/E: 30th June

Dear Parents,

Please find this week’s messages from the school and the PTA.


Can we remind all parents that the school car parks are for staff and visitor parking only at all times.


Please find attached the booking form for Wasps Summer Club.

Open Afternoon 

We would like to invite you to the annual 'Open Afternoon' on Tuesday 11th July from 3.30-4.30pm and 5.30 - 7pm.This is an opportunity for parents and carers to come into school, meet their child's current and new teacher and see their work. Information regarding this event will also go out in a letter to parents along with the children's annual reports. 

INSET Day reminder 

We would like to remind you that Friday 30th June is an INSET day at Whyteleafe.

Summer Fair

The Summer Fair is a wrap for another year. A massive thank you to parents, staff and pupils for all your hard work and generous contributions, not only with donations, but also your time, without which, we would be unable to run the kind of fair we want to provide for you and your children.  We hope everyone had as great a time as we did.

The funds raised at the fair and from the raffle are still being calculated and more information on totals to follow.

If you have any feedback on how the fair went, or would like to get involved with the next one, then we would love to hear from you at whyteleafepta@gmail.com.

Ice Cream Friday

This is moving to Thursday this week due to Friday's INSET day. Depending how many volunteers we have, we will be on both KS1 and KS2 playgrounds or just KS1. So if you don't see us on the KS2 playground, please walk round to find us.  

Thank you for your continued support.

New Reception visits

The new reception children will be visiting the school next Wednesday (5th July). Whilst the children spend some time in with their new teachers, the PTA offers tea and coffee to the parents. We are looking for anyone who may be able to help with either the 11am or 1.45pm visits. Please email whyteleafepta@gmail.com if you are able to help.

Next PTA meeting Wednesday 12th July 

All welcome.
