School individual photographs were taken this week. We hope to have the viewing and order forms with you before the half term break. We will up date you as soon as we have them.
The primary girls, boys and secondary boys swim suits are now in stock and we will be selling them from Monday 13th October. For our secondary girls there are a small selection of swimsuits however we are working with our manufacturers on some other sizes. Until this is solved girls may wear a plain black swim suit if they are competing for the school or their own suit for PE lessons. Again we apologise for the delay.

There are a number of important notices that parents need to read.
- Please download the letter below to read about the school teams and how our competitive sport is being taken forward.
- New York Tennis will be offering free tennis coaching sessions as part of the school CCA programme. Sunday: Year 1-4 and Tuesday: Year 5-8. Sessions will run from 3-4pm and parents should collect children directly from the tennis courts at 4pm. These sessions start the week beginning Sunday 12th October. In order to sign-up your child do so at the main school reception desk.
- Year 3-6 Football NAS Team Training Session Sunday 12th October: IF YOUR CHILD WISHES TO REPRESENT THE SCHOOL AS A MEMBER OF A NAS FOOTBALL TEAM THEY MUST ATTEND THIS SESSION. This will be led by the KAFO coaches, is open to all boys in year 3, 4, 5 and 6 and is free of charge.
- It has been brought to our attention that not all children who wish to represent the school have signed up to the CCA teacher-led football activities. Therefore, this session is designed to bring all interested children together, whether they attend the KAFO Academy, teacher-led CCA or other football activities. This session will give us as a school an opportunity to see how many children want to play in school teams and therefore how many teams we should be providing in the different age-categories. Throughout the year we will operate a model whereby children who show commitment to weekly training sessions will be rewarded with the opportunity to represent the school in tournaments, leagues and friendly matches. This training session will take place every Sunday 3-4pm. This session will remain open to all and will not be selective in any way. At the end of the session parents should collect children directly from the Astro.
