The cost of Breakfast Club in September will be £4 per child per day.
Instrumental Tuition at Holly Park Autumn Term 2021
If you wish your child to have instrumental tuition lessons at school next term please log into Barnet Education Arts Trust (beatrust.org.uk) where you will find all the details you need. Lessons are usually for children in next term’s Year 3 and above. However, we do offer violin and ‘cello lessons to next term’s Year 2 children, as well. The school does not enrol any children or take fees. Please observe BEAT’s deadlines for enrolment and fees.
School Uniform for the New School Year In September 2021
We have made the decision that whatever happens in September in terms of COVID and any implications for schools that we will continue to have the children come to school on PE days in their PE kit. Parents I have spoken to much prefer this, teachers prefer it as it makes more time in the school day for the curriculum and the PE lesson can be longer and the office also much prefer it as we have far less lost property. I am letting you know this decision now as it may have implications for the amount of uniform you want/need to purchase over the summer holidays.
Want to help parents just like you?
Become a Parent Champion Free Training! What is a Parent Champion volunteer? They are parents just like you …. who volunteer for a few hours a week, meeting other parents to tell them about local childcare and other family services. As a parent, you can chat more informally and share information and your own positive experiences about local services. How does it work? As a Parent Champion you would talk with individuals or small groups about early learning, childcare and other services. You might set up information sessions for parents at community events. You could help parents find further information and advice from a family information service or children’s centre. How do I volunteer? You need to spare around 1-2 hours a week, for a minimum of six months. You should normally be able to fit it around your family, study or other commitments. If you are interested or want to find out more, please contact Mrs Puzey.
