Our Bluebells After School Club has now become a very popular place to be!
Due to this we have had to make some changes to our policy to make sure that all the children are safe and we have sufficient staff. Below show some of the key changes we have made with a link to our policy.
For full details of our Early Birds and Bluebells Policy please see the link below.
Thank you for all your continued support
Mrs Sarah Chapman-Allen
From September 2019, we would like to introduce the role of Parent/Guardian Class Rep at IVJS. It will be an important, rewarding role which will have significant benefits for pupils, parents and teachers alike.
The Role of a Parent/Guardian Class Rep will include: informing parents of upcoming events, sharing parents’ views with school staff, suggestions and organising help for the Christmas Fair, Summer Fair and other school events. As class rep, you will provide useful feedback to class parents and communicate feedback from parents to the class teacher. You will be the main point of contact between the parents and the teacher. As the year progresses, we hope that this role can grow and we welcome any suggestions or feedback on how best to develop it.
We hope that Parent/Guardian Class Reps will help build a sense of community among the class parents and develop a strong, respectful link between the parents and the school. We are very excited for the opportunity to develop this role and improve communication across the school. We hope that this will continue to develop increasingly positive relationships between parents and the school so that we can work in the best interest of all pupils.
If you feel you are up for the job, please complete and return the form below explaining why you feel you would best fit this role. All applications will be carefully considered and discussed with Miss Short and the school leadership team. Should you have any questions or further thoughts regarding the role please feel free to come and speak to Miss Short.
Tickets are now available online to book!
Doors will open to each performance 15mins before the show time however we will send information out next week about what time each child will need to be back for rehearsal.
Families can order 3 tickets per performance, any tickets we have left will go on sale from Monday 15th July. A message will be sent with availability for both performances that morning.
Tickets cost £2 per each and will be available on School Money to pay for once they are requested, they will be sent out with the children when they are paid for.
All buggies will need to be left in the playground for the Tuesday performance in order to keep the aisles clear for our actors and we cannot allow any under 5s at the Wednesday performance.
Please note that from September our classroom staff will be as follows:
Year 3 Browne - Miss Short
Year 3 Blake - Miss Couves
Year 4 Dahl - Miss Booth
Year 4 Donaldson - Miss Rowe
Year 5 Kipling - Mrs Jaques
Year 5 Morpurgo - Mrs Karim
Year 6 Rowling - Miss Bjorck
Year 6 Rosen - Mrs Bowden
As you will see from the list above we are saying goodbye to some of our current teachers at the end of term. Miss Ghedia and Miss Naulls are moving to bigger schools to advance their careers. In terms of our LSAs, Miss Berry will be leaving to start her new career as a Speech and Language therapist, Miss Bichard will be starting her first year of teacher training and Miss Goodman starts her in school training as a secondary school Dance teacher. We wish everyone luck in their new adventures and hope they will all stay in touch.
Today the children have met their new teachers and spent the afternoon getting to know them. I am sure that you will get to know your child’s new teacher when you see them around school and we will have a consultation evening in the autumn term for you to meet them properly.
This year, Buckinghamshire Transition Day is Tuesday 2nd July. This is where they children from Years 3 to 5 will ‘move up’ to the classes they will be in from September with a change to get to know their new teachers.
For Year 6, this will mean the majority of the year will be spending the day at their new secondary schools.
While most children will have to make their own way to the new schools, Chalfont Community College are providing a bus to and from the school for the Year 6s.
If your child is attending Chalfont Community College, pupils should arrive at the front of our school (IVJS) just before 8am when the coach is due. Please note, there will not be any IVJS staff to look after the Year 6s so it may be worth waiting with your child until the coach departs.
They will also be providing a return coach, due to arrive back at IVJS for 3pm. Again, this is only for children attending Chalfont Community College.
This half term, we will be running a change for life club and would love for you to join us!
Our club will focus on two things in particular, healthy eating and exercise! Over the term we will be learning all about how to keep our bodies healthy and fun things we can do at home.
The club will run on Wednesdays after school from 3:15 – 4:15pm. The first session will be Wednesday 19th June.
This club must be attended by both children and a parent or carer.
If you have any questions, please speak to Miss Couves or Mr Hawkes.
This year, as part of Clean Air Day 2019, our year 6 pupils have the opportunity to record their lung capacity. Our friends at Heathrow are helping us to raise awareness of the importance of clean air and will be supplying disposable peak flow equipment for each child to use. The activity will require your child to blow into the equipment.
The data recorded will only be used by year 6 as part of their Science topic; they will be able to investigate if there is a correlation between a person’s height and their lung capacity. Heathrow will not be collecting the data.
If you do not want your child to take part in this exercise, please fill in the attached slip and they will be withdrawn from the activity. If you are happy for your child to join in with the activity you do not need to fill in the letter
On Tuesday 16th July, our Year 3s have been invited to the Iver Village Infant School to watch the Year 2 End of Year performance. Our Year 3s will be walking down with the teachers and LSAs during the morning and walking back.
Your child will not need a packed lunch.
Please complete the form below to give permission for your child to attend the performance and to walk to and from the Infant School with our staff.
