Key Stage 2: Pridi 20 Entrance Closing Information.

As mentioned in previous newsletters, we have been in discussion with our neighbours on Pridi 20 and the local authorities to try and help minimise the flow of traffic and the parking situation on the Soi, which is causing so many to be upset in the neighbourhood.

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, the traffic situation hasn’t improved. Soi 20 has been overused as a drop off and pick up point and parking in the sub-sois by members of our community continues to block residents from entering and leaving their homes when they need to.

To maintain our good relationship with the neighbours and take affirmative steps to resolve the traffic issues in the Soi, as of Monday 5th October, the gate at Pridi 20 will be closed. At a later date, we will be changing the entrance so that entry will only be available to people with RFID cards. Nevertheless, children will still not be able to be dropped off or picked up in the Soi. Cars from the STA community will no longer be permitted to park in the Soi.

Instead, families and their drivers will have to make use of drop off and pick up facilities in the Main Car Park (for KS2 this is in front of the car park), the parking at Suk 71 (Pridi 24), or the free ‘park and ride’ shuttle bus service from Max Value on Sukhumvit 71.

Phones and Smart Watches in School

In this modern age, many children bring a mobile phone or a smartwatch capable of making calls to school. These prove to be invaluable in helping with the collection of the children at the end of the school day. We are very happy for children to bring these devices into school, but the following guidelines should be adhered to:

  • Phones should stay in bags during the school day;
  • Phones are not to be used for gaming, for watching videos or for engaging in social media;
  • Parents must not call the children during the school day. Any messages for children should be relayed either through the class teacher or through the school office
  • We ask that you do not answer calls from your children during the school day. If there are any issues, the school will make direct contact with you.

If children are found to be making/receiving calls during the day, the teacher will take the device and keep it until the end of the day. Your support with the correct management of these devices would be greatly appreciated.

End of the day pick up

With ECAs just about to start, we would like to remind you all about the procedures for collecting children at the end of the day. We have also noticed that in the mornings, the queue of children arriving late has been growing steadily over the last few weeks and we would like to remind you of a few points to ensure that your child is in on time and is ready to start their learning journey for the day.

After School Arrangements

After School

Children not attending an ECA should leave as close to 2.30 pm as possible as there is no adult supervision after school.

Collection after ECA

  • At 2.30 pm all children must either leave the school campus or attend an ECA.
  • Once the ECAs are completed all KS2 children will be taken to the canteen where they can be collected. Please ensure you collect your child in a prompt manner.
  • There is no provision to look after siblings if they are not attending an ECA and they cannot remain on campus without an adult. The adult must be with the child at all times.

Parent-Led International Day Performances

The parent-led performances are always one of the highlights and are a perfect way to celebrate the diverse cultures that make up our community. This year, the performances will take place in the Sports Hall rather than outside in the quad.on both the Thursday and Friday at break time - beginning 10 am.

Let your child’s creative juices flow!

If your child enjoys writing, they will LOVE this worldwide creative competition for KS2 children: My Country.

The competition has a theme: ‘My Country.’ It requires the children to write a piece about either the country they are from, their ideal country or their favourite country in the world. Besides providing a great opportunity to showcase your child's writing skills, there are some great prizes to be won. More details can be found on the website.

 

Key2_05

The piece of writing must be completed and sent from home; however, your child’s teacher would be more than happy to give some feedback before it is submitted.

 The deadline for entering the story is Sunday 1st November 2020.
