We will be selling tickets for both performances at a cost of £2.00 per ticket. We will be sending a text to parents on Monday with a link to our online ticket request form. Once received, payment can be made either in cash or via the School Money payment system from Monday. The tickets will be issued once payment is received.
We will be allocating 3 tickets per family, per performance initially but more may be available later, details of extra tickets will be sent out on Monday 2nd December via text message.
On Wednesday 4th December, lower school children will need to return to school by 5.30pm so they have time to get changed into their costumes. Before the performance, tea, coffee and mince pies will be available to buy. There will also be a small raffle.
All children will need to be collected from their classroom doors by an adult at the end of the Wednesday performance.
All children attending The Iver Village Junior School will have the opportunity to watch the production during the school day on Monday 2nd December.
We do hope that you will be able to join us for one of the performances.

I am writing to you to invite you to stand for election as a parent governor, or nominate another parent to do so. In our school we have provision for 2 parent governors and there is currently 1 vacancy. The governing body, with the headteacher, has overall responsibility for the running of the school. Governing bodies have three core strategic functions:
Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
No special qualifications are needed and the most important thing is to have a keen interest in the school and be prepared to play an active part in the governing body’s work. Training is available for all governors and this governing body has an expectation that those new to being a governor, attend free induction training.
The enclosed sheet summarises the circumstances under which someone cannot serve as a governor. In addition, parents/carers who have paid employment in the school for 500 or more hours per academic year or who are elected members of the Local Authority, are not eligible to stand in these elections. Nominations must be from parents or carers with children at the school on the day that nominations close.
If you would like to stand for election, please complete the enclosed nomination form and return it to the school no later than Friday 6th December. You may also include a short personal statement to support your nomination, which should be no longer than 250 words. Self-nominations will be accepted but if you are nominating another parent, please seek their prior consent.
If there are more nominations than vacancies, the election will be by secret ballot. If that is necessary, voting papers will be sent to all parents together with details of the ballot procedure.
