Monkton Park Newsletter Friday 28th June 2019

A huge thank you to the FOMPS team who put on another brilliant Monkfest last weekend. We were delighted to see so many people come along for the day and it was a real success.

We would also like to wish Miss Roberts (our SENCO) the best of luck for her new job in Bristol. Miss Roberts was successfully appointed to a 5 day a week teacher & SENCO position and will leave us at the end of the academic year. We are delighted to say that we have appointed Mrs Kerry Haines as our new SENCO. Mrs Haines has a huge amount of experience working with children who have special educational needs and we look forward to welcoming her to the team.

Thank you to Mrs Hughes who has organised a really successful STEM week over the past 5 days. The children have had a range of different STEM experiences and we will share some photos from the week in the next newsletter.


Sportsday is on Wednesday 3 July. The children have all been practicing, we are really looking forward to a fun day of sport.

KS2 races begin at 10am, Family and Friends are welcome from 9.45am. Entry to the field is through the KS1 playground.

KS1 races begin at 1.45pm, family and friends are welcome from 1.30pm. Entry to the field is also through the KS1 playground.

The forecast for Wednesday is good. Please can you ensure that your children have their PE kits in school with daps/trainers. They will also need wear suncream, sun hats and bring water bottles.
