Dear Parents,

Welcome back to Compass Gharaffa.  I hope your children have settled in well and are enjoying an exciting start to the new academic year.

On Thursday, the children gathered in the hall for our first Year 1 to Year 6 assembly.  Today’s message was about the children developing an open mindset and the importance of perseverance and practice.  Other messages were given about school expectations which include behaviour, academic and uniform.  The children listened extremely well to the messages and had many questions.

A quick reminder that our Meet the Team presentations will begin on Sunday.  It is important that all parents attend as important messages will be given at these meetings.  The schedule for the meetings is as follows:

Sunday, 2 September                      Y5 and Y6              7.30am to 8.00am

Monday 3 September                      Y3 and Y4              7.30am to 8.00am

Tuesday 4 September                      Y1 and Y2              7.30am to 8.00am

Also, next week the school is hosting a coffee morning.  This will be led by our Friends of Compass team and is an opportunity for our new and existing parents to relax and enjoy a coffee after drop off.  The coffee morning will take place on Wednesday 5 September.

On Sunday, from 5pm, our ECA (Extra Curricular Activity) programme will be available online.  Parents are welcome to sign up their children but must ensure that children are collected from school on time.  Children who are collected late after clubs may lose their placement.  Online sign up will be open next week from Sunday to Wednesday.  The school also offers private clubs which are organised by outside agencies.  If parents are interested in seeing which other clubs are available please visit our ECA fair on Tuesday, 4 September at 1.45pm.

Parents still seeking uniform can visit the school’s pop up uniform shop on Wednesday 5 September and Thursday 6 September.  The uniform shop will be open all day.

I would like to thank all our parents who were able to return on time for the start of the school term.  Children all seem happy and settled back in to school routines.  We look forward to working closely with our parents this year to ensure that every child is happy and reaching their full potential.

Kind regards,

Karen Wilson

Head of Compass Gharaffa
