‘Stop Means Stop’ Campaign

October 17, 2017

We have been asked to let parents and carers know about the ‘Stop Means Stop’ Campaign being run by Hertfordshire County Council which is aimed at reminding drivers of their duty to stop for school crossing patrols.

A common misconception is that the School Crossing Patrol Service is only there to cross children. By law, patrols cross any pedestrian that wishes to cross and have the same legal authority to stop traffic, at their designated sites, as the police under the 2002 Amendment of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 (Section 26 to 28). Failure to stop can result in a minimum of three points on an individual’s licence and/or a fine of up to £1,000.


School Lunches

October 13, 2017

The new school lunch menu for after half term will be sent home in pupils’ bookbags next week. A reminder that if you wish to change your child’s meal option from packed lunch to school dinners or vice versa after half term, you must let the school office know before the end of next week, i.e. before the half term break. Thank you.


The Lea Primary School Word Cloud

September 29, 2017

You will shortly see appearing on various walls in our school, a lovely word cloud which includes a collection of carefully selected words that we believe define the values of our school. This was created by our former PTA Chair, Sue Stevens, and we were so impressed by it that we have decided to put it on display.

Nursery and Reception Phonics Workshop

September 27, 2017

Nursery and Reception held their phonics workshop this morning. Unfortunately not as many parents and carers attended as we had hoped, possibly due to the timing of the workshop. Those who did come along told us that they had found it extremely informative and beneficial. Therefore, if there is enough demand for it, our Nursery and Reception teachers are kindly offering to hold another one in the very near future for those who were unable to attend, perhaps scheduled at a different time of day. Please let your child’s Nursery/Reception teacher know at drop off or pick up if you are interested.
