The majority of pupils at Ash Lea arrive and leave by local authority organised transport. This makes it difficult for us parents to meet at the gates and socialise, so each year FOALS tries to facilitate this by organising a few parent and carer nights out. This is an evening to get together and chat over dinner and a drink or two. Everyone is welcome, it doesn’t matter if you don’t know anyone. The purpose of these nights is so that you can meet others in similar situations to yourselves and make friends.
The cost of the night will depend upon what you order. You can view the menus on their website:
At the very latest the reply slip must be returned to us by Wednesday 20th June.
Everyone (pupils, staff, parents and visitors) have been seen gathering in reception this week. They have all been watching the incubator with a great deal of excitement to see our ‘Living Eggs’ hatch. We have watched the nine chicks break out of their shells one by one and grow in confidence and strength each day. We now have nine happy healthy cheeping chicks; three boys and six girls. Miss Evans is the lucky teacher who gets to take them home and care for them this weekend and Class 2 have been given the responsibility of choosing their names from the class’ suggestions.
The names chosen from those suggested are…
Class 1 – Betty, 2 – Rosie, 3 – Charlotte, 4 – Poker Face (he’s a boy!), 5 – Keeff, 6 – Elliott, 7 – Eric, 8 – Zelie, 9 – Soph
Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected.
