Welcome to Pickhurst Academy for the start of the Autumn term. I hope you all had an enjoyable summer break. It has been a pleasure to meet so many of the parents and carers of pupils new to Pickhurst Academy in Year 3 and the other year groups.
Monday 25th September is our Meet the Teacher afternoon where you can introduce yourselves to your child’s class teacher and visit the classroom. Please drop in between 3.30pm and 5pm. We look forward to seeing you then.
Thank you to the parents and carers who attended our PTA Annual General Meeting. Having spoken to several of you who were unable to attend, we really appreciate your offers to help organise events and fundraisers to enhance the learning environment and experiences for the children at our school. We do, however, need you to confirm that commitment so please pass on your contact details to the office staff. We really value your offer of ideas and any time you can provide during this academic year.
Please take the time to read the ‘In Brief’ for your child’s year group as it provides you with specific details about what is happening and the expectations for the pupils. I hope you are all able to access Dojo as this is an excellent way to receive instant updates about your child and their class.
May I remind all parents and carers to park considerately when dropping off and collecting their children. Please have respect for our neighbours and do not obstruct their driveways. Thank you for your consideration.
I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Mrs Marsh (Acting Principal)
