School Summer Fair

The sun shone for us, making our school fair a fantastic success and it was great to see so many children and adults enjoying an afternoon of fun and harmony. Thanks must go to the Friends of Links PTA for all their hard work both beforehand and on the day and to all our families and friends who came and spent their money! We raised a magnificent £1379. Thank you everyone for your support.

Staffing News

We will be saying farewell to several members of staff at the end of term. Wendy Bullock is retiring after 23 years of service to Links. We will miss her greatly and wish her many years of happiness and relaxation.
Jenny Parrett, Jemma Marsh, Nathalie Belcher, Felicity Burns and Sophia Allcott are all moving on to pastures new and we wish them good luck and success for the future. I am sure you will join me in thanking them for all their hard work and loyalty to Links over their years with us.
I am pleased to announce that we have been able to recruit excellent replacements and we are fully staffed for September.

Height and Weight Checks

Reception and Year 6 height and weight results letters were sent home with the children. If you have not received your child’s results please contact the School Nurse Support Workers on 020 8687 4611/4625 and they will send you a copy.

New blinds

With the help of generous donations from parents, after the Christmas concerts, we have been able to find enough money to fit new blinds in all our halls and classrooms. This work will be carried out over the Summer holidays, ready for the new school year in September.

School Playground Refurbishment

Almost a year ago we heard that we had won a £30,000 Sport England award to improve our playground space. Our options for spending this money are very limited and it has taken a long time to finalise our plans. However, over the Summer holidays the workmen will be working to refurbish our ‘cage’ area. A new surface will be laid, providing better drainage and allowing it to be used all year round. A new gate near the shed is being installed, enabling the shed to be used as a teaching area with direct access to the cage. In the Autumn we will also be planting new bushes in the maze to fill in the gaps and repairing damaged woodwork. Any offers of help with this would be gratefully received.

Attendance and Punctuality

I am pleased to report a continued improvement in our attendance figures, which are currently at 95.7%, which is broadly in line with the national expectation. Thank you to all parents for your support in this. We are continuing to focus on the attendance and punctuality of all our pupils, working in partnership with our Education Welfare Officer.
