KET - Parent Trust Associate Vacancy
While case numbers are high in school and the borough as a whole, please keep up with testing your child twice a week. If they have symptoms of COVID-19, keep them at home and arrange for a PCR tests as soon as possible. Please be aware that the lateral flow device test kits we can supply are for the children only and not other family members. You can order tests for your household here
We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC’s Number Day next Friday 4 February 2022 and raising money to help fund their vital services such as Childline.
The children will have a fun day of maths activities and we will all be taking part in Dress up for Digits by wearing an item of clothing with a number on it (or getting even more creative by dressing in a maths or numbers theme!) in return for a donation to the NSPCC via our dedicated JustGiving page. Our target is £600 and we’d love everyone in the school to take part in this special event.
Don't forget about our RM Easimaths competition too! To celebrate its launch and promote practice at home, we'll be presenting prizes to the classes that complete the most activities before Thursday 3rd February.
Your child will be bringing home their login details – please check the front of their Home School Notebook. Log in here. Your child's username is unique to them; the site id is the same for every pupil: Fernhill (capital ‘F’), as is the password: fernhill (lowercase ‘f’). If you have any queries about RM Easimaths or are having problems logging in, please speak to your class teacher.
