A warm 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 welcome back all the children and meet the new pupils in each year group and their parents/carers.
I would also like to welcome our new staff members to the Pickhurst team.
You will have noticed a few changes around the school site in preparation for some exciting developments regarding our two new classes, Jupiter and Saturn.
A reminder that, as from next Monday, 10th September, all parents/carers (including Year 3) must say goodbye to their children at the playground gate, where they will be greeted by a staff member. The gate opens at 8.30am and closes at 8.50am. If your child arrives after 8.50am they must report to the office to be signed in.
A list of this term’s clubs is overleaf and dates for your diary on Page 3.
Please remember our on-site rules regarding dismounting from bicycles and scooters before coming onto the grounds and taking care at crossing points, car parks and driveways. May I also remind all parents and carers to park considerately when dropping off and collecting your children and to ensure that you do not obstruct driveways or park on the grass verges.
