The Scoop Week 28th February 2023

Hello Lyndhurst Family,

Schools have so many functions within our society and we each have our own relationship with them—some positive and some less so. At Lyndhurst we are all committed to working together to grow the sense of family that makes our school so special. Over the next few weeks we have several opportunities to get involved with our school community from Friends of Lyndhurst meetings, parent consultations to working weekends. We look forward to working with you over the coming weeks.

Working Weekend:
Our first working weekend is set for March 11th and 12th. We need helpers to prepare plant beds, trim shrubs, dig holes, varnish wood and construct some basic flatpack. If you are interested in helping out, please let the office know (so that we can get an idea of numbers). If you have tools (in particular shovels and secateurs) that we could use on the weekend please let us know.  

Skate Club:
We are really excited to be hosting inline skating lessons at Lyndhurst on a Saturday morning. Lesson are available to any one in years 1-6, you can sign up by going to the school will receive a percentage of the profits from this club so please do spread the word. You can find out more here

African Caribbean Education Network (ACEN):
The ACEN are holding an event for Black students, parents and carers who want to find out more about the selective school admissions process for independent and grammar schools. You can book your tickets by clicking HERE (some are free and some cost £10).

Friends of Lyndhurst:
You can find the minutes of the last meeting in the transcript below (they will also be published to the FOL linktree). The next FOL meeting is on Thursday at 08:30pm via zoom.

Sibling Photographs:
The sibling photographs will now be taking place on Wednesday due to some issues with scheduling.

Parent Consultations 22nd & 23rd March:
Booking will open next week for our parent consultations. You can meet with your child’s teacher for one meeting (separated parents will need to attend together), year five parents will have an additional meeting to discuss secondary school selection. During our parent consultations we will also have some of our curriculum materials on display for you to look at more closely.
