Head of School update

This week at school……..

We have had a really good week.

All the children have settled into their new classes and are tackling their learning with enthusiasm. From learning to fly, magic crayons, to Dunkirk little ships, there have been lots of great learning happening across our school!  Check out the weekly class updates for more information.

Individual & Sibling Photos – Get your smiles at the ready – Tempest will be returning to MIJS on Monday 25th September to take Individual and Sibling photos. Please ensure that your child is in school uniform. Year 6 parents will be contacted nearer the time in regards to a change of PE day for this week only to allow for photos to be taken in our school uniform. If you have any questions or do not wish for your childs photo to be taken please contact the school office.

Pre-Loved Uniform – The MIJS PTFA uniform shop is a great opportunity to get good quality, pre-loved school uniforms. Use this link to make a request: https://forms.gle/pP1ddk1DY3gcrkXU9

School Lunch Bookings ReminderCut off for ordering lunches: Every Sunday at midday the following week’s lunches will be taken offline and no more bookings can be made. If you have not ordered a lunch then the school admin team will contact you and you/a family member or friend will need to bring in a packed lunch to the office before 12pm for your child.

Census Dinner – This term’s census theme is ‘Brunch for Lunch’ which is taking place on Thursday 5th October 2023.

In order to help us to do the best for your children we are asking for your support. Please log onto school money and place your order.
