Nativity DVD Order - EYFS and Years 1 & 2
Please find attached the order form for the Nativity Productions for both EYFS and Years 1 and 2. Please could you complete a separate form for each year group for which you wish to order.
Please could we request that if you are emailing us with details of your child's absence from school that you should use the email address email@example.com . It would also be really helpful if you could cc your child's Form Teacher.
Nursery, Transition and Reception Parents- Tapestry Activation Codes
Every parent should receive an activation email code by Monday 3 December 2018. Please read the attached to help you get started on your Tapestry journey. Please remember that the expectation is for each child to have a new entry in their journal every week. You can continue to complete the paper-based journal or become familiar with the online version. The journal is a wonderful resource which allows your child to share their experiences with their peers. You are more than welcome to add extra, exciting events to your child's online journal, please do not feel restricted to one entry per week! The attached document 'Tapestry for Parents Guidance' offers a simple guide on how to add an observation to your child's journal.
Network Evening Event - 7 March 2019
Our Network Evening this academic year will be held on Thursday 7 March. We would appreciate as many parental volunteers as possible to come along and speak to our students and give them information on your career and how you achieved it. From previous years we know that this can have a very positive impact on our students in terms of their awareness of certain careers, their aspirations towards their GCSE and A level grades and their ability to 'network' with adults. This year the Network Evening will be for Year 10 - 13 students but parents of students in the entire school can help support this opportunity. If you are able to spare your time to do this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org Many thanks in advance for your help. David Leddington (Head of Sixth Form)
Performing Arts Timetables
The Performing Arts Timetables are available here. Please check regularly as times and occasionally days are subject to change. Timetables are also displayed on the notice boards in the Performing Arts Centre and outside the Prep School Music classroom. The peripatetic staff do their best to look for clashes with trips, fixtures and talks, but if any of your child's lessons are scheduled for the same time as events of this nature, please inform the relevant peripatetic teacher so that lessons can be rearranged in good time.
Please find attached the Radnor Christmas Book List which suggest gift ideas for all students in both the Prep and Senior Schools. I have included some of my favourite books and some new titles as well. I do hope you enjoy browsing through them. Happy Reading - Miss Beck
Mr Veness’ Favourite Wintry Reads
To go along with the Suggested Christmas Book Gift List, and with Christmas coming up, I have been thinking about some great wintry reads that I have enjoyed and I am sure that children can get stuck into. With the evenings drawing in, it is a great chance to settle down and cosy up with a good book! Here are just a few of my titles for a range of ages and interests!
Please be advised that Wednesday 28 November was the last Action Acorns session for the term.
Christmas Jumper Day Friday 14 December 2018 - Raising funds for Save The Children
This year we will once again be entering into the 'Festive Spirit' on the last day of term, and would invite all pupils to attend school wearing a Christmas Jumper for the minimum contribution of £1 (to be handed to their Form Teacher) per jumper worn, all of which will go to Save the Children. We hope as many pupils as possible will be able to join in with the festivities.
