January 2020 Whole School Newsletter and Dates for the term

Up to date information is available on the school website including dates for both spring and summer term, staff training days, trips and much more.


Emergency Closure

Schools are no longer required to notify local radio stations.  If the school is to be closed for any reason, this will be published on the school website by 8am.



Year 3 swimming will resume on Monday 13th January  – may we remind you that the voluntary contribution of £30 for the whole term to Easter is now due.  There are 10 consecutive weeks of swimming sessions, finishing on Monday 23rd March.


Teacher led clubs          

Teacher led after school clubs will begin week starting Monday 20th January.


SATs week                         

SAT tests for children in Years 6 will take place week beginning Monday 11th May.  It is important that all Year 6 children are in school throughout this week.



Trips for each year group have been booked and dates confirmed. Payments can be made on ParentMail now for each of these trips (refer to Dates for Your Diary).


Osmington Bay                

Year 6 parents are reminded that the balance for the Osmington Bay trip is due by Friday 27 March.  Remember that you can pay smaller amounts by ParentMail or by sending in cash or cheque, building up to the final balance if you choose.


Safety in the School Car Park

The school car park is a very busy place. We have allocated a section of the car park for visitor parking  where children can be collected and dropped off.

In order to safeguard the safety of the children please do not:

  • drive into the staff car park to drop off children.
  • allow the children to cross the car park, insist that they use the pavements
  • use the school drive in order to turn around
  • obstruct the main blue gates restricting access for emergency vehicles



If you bring or collect your child by car, please only park on the school side of Mudeford Lane and never stop on the raised area opposite the gate to allow children crossing the road to have a clear view either way.  Neighbours have also requested that driveways and garages are not blocked when collecting your child.  If you are collecting from the Nelson Drive gate, please be considerate when parking and do not obstruct this pedestrian gate. Dropping off or parking on zig-zag lines also places our children at risk.


Parent Evenings              

Year 6 parent evenings will be on Tuesday 4th February 4.00-6.30pm and Wednesday 5th February, 5.30-8.00pm.  For Years 3, 4, 5 parent evenings will be held on Tuesday 24 March 4.00-6.30pm and Wednesday 25 March 5.30-8.00 pm. 


Parent View Website

As part of the new Ofsted inspection process a website has been launched asking for parents’ views on every school.  It is a very quick and simple survey requiring only 2 minutes of your time.  We would very much appreciate your support in completing this survey.

The address for Ofsted is:

Then go to the section “Give your views”.    Many thanks for your continued support.


Friends of Mudeford Junior School

The PTA’s Christmas activities were a huge success, raising over £5000 (the exact figure to be confirmed) and we appreciate all the support given by parents and staff.
