A warm welcome back after the Christmas holidays, we hope that everyone had a restful and pleasant break. The children have settled back into school life and daily routines very quickly. We have discussed in assemblies how many people set New Year’s Resolutions at the beginning of the year and are encouraging children to reflect on what they would like to achieve in the upcoming months. The children have already started PE lessons, so could you please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school every day.
We are launching our Parent Workshops from the 23rd January, starting with a workshop on Maths in the Early Years. Our parent workshops will run every Wednesday in the KS1 Hall from 9-10am, any parent is welcome to attend. Please do look at the school calendar to see what workshops are upcoming. Apologies as the Phonics workshop which was due next week has now had to be changed to Wednesday 30th January.
I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend and look forward to seeing you next week.
We are delighted to inform all parents/carers that our new Grafton Primary School app is now available to download. Please download the new app by following the instructions below

Classes with the highest attendance this week are:
Whole school attendance this week is 95.55% Remember that you have to come to school every day to achieve 100% attendance. Grafton Primary School has adopted Local Authority procedures and DO NOT authorise holidays during term time. Parents will be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice Fine of £60 per parent per child for all holidays taken during the term. If you need to discuss this, please contact Mrs Chappell for clarification
We have successfully sought judgements (CCJs) against those parents that owe substantial amounts to the school, for unpaid school meals. This means that the school will no longer be carrying those debts, and will be able to use those funds appropriately.
Also, thank you to those of you that manage your child's account and keep your child's account in credit.
