Current news from Salway Ash school:
Soups and Smoothies

Do remember, children and staff can buy soups or smoothies on Tuesdays at Break time. These are freshly prepared and cooked by Mrs Phillips and the older children of gardening club sometimes using our own home-grown vegetables and fruit!

Soup (on colder days) costs 20p (30p with bread), Fruit Smoothies are also 20p. Only one option is available each week depending on the availability of fresh ingredients and the weather but they always taste delicious!

Bronze Ambassadors

Our Ambassadors: Back Row: Jack, Eddy, Grace, Sirena, Megan, Front Row: Lily, Adam, Oliver

Primary Schools have been asked to choose children from Years 5 and 6 to be Youth Sport Trust Bronze Ambassadors. The children are chosen for their sporting ability, their commitment to leadership and for supporting the school community particularly by being a good role model.

Our young ambassadors recently attended a training day in Weymouth and have returned inspired to involve themselves in games and activities for the younger children and after school clubs and with an improved confidence in putting across their ideas. This scheme is a great opportunity for these children and will benefit the whole school community as the ideas and plans are put in to practice.

Parents Information Evenings.

Recent parent consultation evenings have run smoothly. The staff value the opportunity to meet with parents and discuss each child’s progress. We hope the meetings are mutually beneficial and particularly that you valued viewing your childs progress on the pupil tracker graphs.

Please also take note of our upcoming Reading Information Evening on Monday 17th March at 6pm for all interested parents.  – Following the success of the recent literacy and Maths evening we will now be holding a similar event for writing. There will be a range of resources available and a chance to meet with staff in an informal manner and discuss how the school and families can best work together to support learning.

Telephone Issues

All telephone and internet issues at school have now been resolved.  Communication should now be back to normal!
