On wet, rainy days it is essential that you send your child in appropriate clothing for the wet weather. A rain coat, waterproof over trousers or all in one rain suit would be great. We have some school clothing to borrow (all in one rain suits) but it would be great to see all children dressed well in order to get outside and have a walk around in the fresh air. Please help us with this to allow the children the break outside they need to get through their day.

As promised we have rearranged Mrs McNeil’s parents evening appointments for Tues 26th and Weds 27th Feb, at your original times and dates.
A letter confirming this is being sent home and an email has been sent.
We once again apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.
Unfortunately Mrs McNeil is away from school due to a critical family emergency. We know that you’ll send her your best and we will pass this on. Thank you for your privacy around this.
In the meantime, we will do our best to ensure consistency for the children in the class by Mrs Abbott, Mrs Panton and other Carlyle staff.
If you need to talk to anyone about your child, please approach the school staff, Miss Crookes (Class 7 teacher) or Mrs Besenzi directly on 01332 760369 or pop into the office.
Thank you for your understanding.

Dear Parents and Carers,
I am writing to share information about the Governing Board’s proposal to join a Multi-Academy Trust.
The school has applied to become an Academy with the Harmony Trust. The Harmony Trust currently has 7 other primary Academies in Derby. We want to add to the opportunities available to the school and to its children and staff by becoming an Academy. Some things won’t change if we do become an Academy: the staff team in school, including myself will remain the same; there will be no change to uniform; and the school day and school holidays will all remain the same. We should hear whether our application has been approved later in February.
We want to make sure that you are kept informed of our proposal and we will let you know what is happening in letters such as this and through meetings and opportunities for you to hear about this at first hand. Once our application is approved, it then takes about 5 months to become an Academy and we will write to you again during that period to seek your comments and to answer any questions that you might have.
To start this process we are going to hold a coffee morning on Thursday 7th February from 9.00 to 10.00 a.m. This will be an opportunity to hear from the school staff, Governors and Harmony Trust. Along with myself, you’ll be able to meet the Chair of Governors, Philip Moulden, and the CEO of the Harmony Trust, Antony Hughes. I do hope that you’ll be able to make it. We’ll write up anything that is discussed, or any questions raised, and we’ll make sure this is shared to all parents.
We will be in touch again soon with further updates as we get them.
Mrs Laura Besenzi
