The Importance of Sleep for Children!

We all know that everyone needs sleep.  However, knowing the right about and how to promote better sleep for children is another matter.  Please have a look at the slides below, which may well help parents to understand some suggestions and techniques, that enable their children to obtain the best possible sleep they can!

Sleep – 10_03_21

These slides and an accompanying talk by Kelly Hodgkins, one of our HLTA’s trained in this area, were offered to parents through the Friends of St Teresa’s meeting last Wednesday at 8pm.  Please look out for further talks and if you have any suggestions for topics, please do let us know.

Lent Fundraising 2021 and Spring Term RE

We are on our Lenten journey which is coming up to half way now and Easter is fast approaching.  We would ask you to look at The Catholic Children’s Society’s Lent Fundraising 2021 link below, to find out more and understand how this very important charity supports so many people in need.  Our very own Dhiya from the Faith in Action Group talks to you about some ideas on how to raise money.  Please take a look and see what you can do to help. Please bring in all donations following the Easter holidays.  Thanking you for your commitment to helping those in need.

Our NED Learning Mantra!

Our learning mantra of Never give up, Encourage others and Do your best (NED) is fundamental to what we do in school (before lockdown) and we celebrate special achievements in NED assembly once a week, where the winners were having a tea party with the Headteacher, getting hot chocolate and biscuit.  However, during the pandemic, we have had to give the children a little bag with an individual hot chocolate and a small treat, instead, which is either posted out or handed to them if they are a key-worker’s child, in school.    

We look forward to using the St Teresa’s NED mugs again in the near future,  for our tea parties. These came from Gracie, Giovanna and Manuela, who donated some of their birthday money to pay for them!  

Acts of random kindness like these, are such a great feature of our school.  Thank you so much.

 

SIMS Parent App – for all parents to please sign up

All information on pupils and parents is entered into our online system called SIMS, which is shared only with the London Borough of Merton.   Once the initial information is entered by the school, taken from the Applicant’s Information Form, completed when applying for a place,  it then becomes parents/carers responsibility to amend any details and update this system regularly.  We recommend checking this every term.  Please also remember to do this if you have moved house, have a new phone number, your child has developed allergies or needs regular medication.  You are always welcome to talk to someone in the school office, if you have any questions. You can email school@st-teresas.merton.sch.uk, or call in.

If you do not  have the School Information Management System Parent App on your phone yet, please let the office know, either by phoning or emailing, so that we can send you an invitation.  You need to make sure this is updated each term, with your correct contact details and child’s information.  Even if there are no changes, please just view the details and confirm they are still correct and submit the form again.  Thank you for your assistance.
