Leadership Update For Parents

Dear Parents / Carers

You will be aware that Mrs. Andrea Symonds, our school Head Teacher has been away from school since February last year due to health reasons. In her absence , Mrs. Carol McDermott  an experienced  head teacher , has been appointed as an Interim Executive Head to support our very able Senior Leadership Team to ensure the high quality of service across all aspects of the school business continues to be delivered  for all Rainbow pupils. As Mrs. Symonds has decided not to return to her post, the School is seeking to recruit a new Head Teacher to move Rainbow forward to becoming an exemplar school in the Bradford District.

Can I take this opportunity to assure you that experienced leadership support will remain in place until the new head teacher recruitment is completed and the successful candidate is able to take charge of the School in due course.

Dear Parent / Carer

Road Safety Around The School Perimeter

We are delighted with your positive response to the Schools’ joint initiative with Bradford Council and the Police to make it safer and more convenient for all of us around the School at PICKUP and DROP OFF times.

To help alleviate congestion around the School perimeter, we will continue to urge you to use the SHORT STAY parking at PICKUP and DROP OFF times in the Local Authority run car park at PORTLAND STREET. Parents are able to use this facility from Monday 30th Jan 2017 between 08:25am and 08:55am and 3:00pm to 3:30pm without incurring any Penalties.

Please note that this CAR PARK is keenly monitored by the traffic wardens, any parents or carers overstaying the agreed times are very likely to be issued penalty notices.

Can I take this opportunity to remind you that No One is allowed to park on the double yellow lines close to the school perimeter on Duinen Street, you can however park in the marked bays on the opposite side .The Police and Traffic Wardens will be keeping a close watch and drivers parking illegally will be issued with parking tickets.

We thank you for your continued co-operation in making your journey to and from the school a SAFER experience.

Rainbow School Uniform Check

Dear Parent/Carer

Children in neat and tidy school uniform go a long way towards creating a cohesive and positive first impression. In order to help us in that regard we are reminding Parents and Carers that children must attend the School in full uniform every day.

The school will be conducting random checks to ensure all our children are meeting this basic requirement.

Verbal reminders and uniform check feedback reports to parents will be followed up by phone calls from the School office staff.

Thank you for continuously supporting your school.

Executive Interim Head

Rainbow Primary School would like to invite you to a Coffee Morning on 02.02.2017 at 8.50am at Rainbow Primary School.

It is an opportunity to meet and chat to other parents, have a coffee and to learn about a range of different things.

Presentations and workshops include ways to help and support your child with their learning and provide parenting advice and support on a wide range of matters.

Coffee Mornings are fun and informal and give parents the chance to ask questions, share experiences and give suggestions about what they want to learn.

We will speak in your language!
