St John's Sports Kit Sponsored by Andrews

This year, there will be more opportunities for children in the Junior school to compete in cross-country events, football and netball tournaments, tag rugby and more! We are very excited to announce that Andrews Property Group will be sponsoring a St John's sports kit for Junior school children participating in these events.  We have ordered 40 kits (for both boys and girls), which will be held centrally and worn by children taking part in inter-school tournaments and competitions. We think having these kits will make a massive difference to the children's confidence and sense of team spirit when they attend sporting events. We'll post pictures on Classlist when the new kit arrives. Watch this space in the coming months!  

 

 

 
Dates for your Diaries
 
Please visit the PTA section of the school website to see the events and socials we have planned for this year: http://www.stjohnsprimary.org.uk/website/pta_events_schedule/135515. These are always lots of fun for both parents and children, so please do add them to your diaries and come along.  If you have any other ideas for events, whether fundraising or purely social, please let us know, and we will try to book them in the diary.  

 

Classlist 

You should have received an email about 'St John's Classlist,' which is a new communications tool we are using to connect parents and carers across the school community. It's a secure, on-line communications platform, customised specifically for schools and PTAs.  Through Classlist you will be able to: 

  • Message parents individually within your class or year group (e.g. to arrange play dates, ask for help with the school run)
  • Post messages to your class or year group (e.g. appeals for lost property, reminders about forest school kit etc.) 
  • Receive announcements; these may be about events organised by the PTA, socials organised by your Class Rep etc.  
  • Invite other parents to school-related events (e.g. your child's Birthday party)
When you register, you choose the details you want to share with other parents in your year group (it gives the option to share your telephone number and address, but this is not obligatory).  Your personal details are secure, and will never be shared with outside parties.  We tested out Classlist on a small scale last year, and feedback was very positive.  It only takes 2 minutes to register, so please keep an eye out for the email invite to join.
