Weekly email
Dear Parents and Carers,
 
A weekend of two halves weather wise...although if you were lucky enough to spend Saturday on the south coast and Sunday on the north coast you would have had the sunniest of weekends! As we are entering the sunnier weather (hopefully) can I remind parents to ensure that children have suncream applied before they attend school and that children bring a named hat to school on days when it is particularly warm and sunny. 
 
Mental Health Month
 
May is Mental Health Month. At St. Mewan we have a very pro-active approach to encouraging good mental health with our pupils. We use the Jigsaw Personal, Social and Health Education curriculum which educates pupils about how to develop emotional resilience and positive mental health and our Pastoral Team have a wealth of knowledge and experience to support children. As a parent it is sometimes hard to watch your child struggle with their mental health and it is very important to know that you are not alone. Please reach out to the school team if you need any support with your child's mental health. The YOUNG MINDS website is an excellent resource for parents and young people as well and I highly recommend you look at what they can offer in terms of support for specific concerns. The link below will take you straight to the website.
 
IMPORTANT - ACTION REQUIRED
An email was sent last term asking all parents to complete a Google Form to ensure that we have your up-to-date contact details in the event of an emergency. Many parents have already completed this form but we still have a large amount who have not. Please can I ask you to take a couple of minutes to complete this form as we must have the most current contact details for all parents and carers. 
 
Y6 Assessments
Good luck to our fantastic Year 6 pupils this week as their SATs begin today. They have worked incredibly hard all year and we are very proud of them all!
 
Morning Drop Off
Thank you so much to everyone who responded to my plea about the 8.30am drop off time as we were having a lot of unsupervised children on the playground in the morning. Your co-operation is very much appreciated. 
 
School Uniform
Again, a plea to ask parents to make sure all children are wearing the correct school uniform and that long hair is tied up. If you are struggling with providing uniform for your child, please ask us as we do have some uniform in school. A reminder that, from September 2022, all children will be required to wear the school black polo shirt for PE, not a yellow t-shirt. These are available from Cornwall Screenprint. 
 
School Lunch Reminder
Please remember to book your child's lunch by 8am every day.
 
Have a great week everyone,
 
 
Mrs. Elaine Badger
