Friends of Tadpole Farm Easter Disco Reminder
A big thank you to everyone that has volunteered to help with the disco;  we are really grateful. If those that have volunteered could arrive 15 minutes before, if possible, to attend a quick meeting and read the risk assessment that would be great.  Also, can we just ask & remind everyone that no siblings are able to come along as helpers.
Tickets for the disco will be going out in book bags on Monday so please keep an eye out for these, if your child doesn’t have one then please let us know. 

News from St Andrew’s Church
Don’t forget to come along to the Craft Morning for children and accompanying adults at Tadpole Farm Academy on Good Friday 30th March from 10-12 noon.  There’ll be Easter themed activities for children and tea and coffee available.  Drop in for a little or as long as you’d like.

Details of our other Easter services are available on our website
Our next Church @ Tadpole Garden Village All-age service is just before term starts again on Sunday 15th April at 4pm.  We’ll be exploring the joy of the Easter story – craft for children and light refreshments as well as worship.  All welcome.
Hoping you all have a very Happy Easter

Quick reminders –

Water bottles – please remember that only water should be sent in in water bottles.  Water bottles are left available for children to access during the day – if your child has something other than water in their bottles then that presents a risk to others eg we have some children who cannot drink orange flavoured drinks due to a reaction – if you send in a child with orange squash and the allergic child inadvertently has a similar bottle then a problem has been created which should not exist.  If we find bottles filled with anything other than water we will bring it to your attention and ask that you only send in water.  Thank you for your cooperation;
Key rings and book bagsit’s a good idea to have something distinctive on your child’s book bag but could you support them in choosing just one item – some book bags now have so many items that they will not fit in the children’s drawers;
Head licea reminder to check heads again please for head lice – we still have them in school – persistent combing for two weeks daily is most effective way to clear them;
Emailing schoolif you want to communicate with staff by email please use and your message will be passed to the most appropriate member of staff – each teacher has an email address but these are not for parents to contact them directly as we need to monitor the questions and requests so we can improve our support for your child and family.  Thank you.

Thank you for Book Vouchers
Thank you to Pizza Express and Ethan’s mum for sorting out some book vouchers for us – we’re very grateful.
