SATURDAY 7TH JULY 2018
Final update on the fete this Saturday
We have made the decision to start the fete at 12pm and finish at 2.15pm
We are going to need as many gazebos as possible as the weather is looking like it will be sunny and hot! If you can lend us one, please get in contact with me and either pop it in to school on Friday or bring it on Saturday morning.
We have decided not to go ahead with the dads football match, but instead we will have a class penalty shoot out competition. We will need a team captain from each year and volunteers for goalies please. If you are interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you are all aware and extremely proud of the England football team have made it through to the quarter finals this Saturday.
We would appreciate everyone’s help in getting everything cleared away as soon as possible. This will ensure that we can all, including those that have worked so hard to bring the summer fete together, go and enjoy watching and supporting the England football team through to the semi finals.
Thank you very much for all the donations and help so far. I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday having lots of fun.
Many thanks to everyone who came tonight. It was great to see you.
Please see below a pdf summary of the slides used in the address.

The National Pupil Database (NPD)
The NPD is owned and managed by the Department for Education and contains information about pupils in schools in England. It provides invaluable evidence on educational performance to inform independent research, as well as studies commissioned by the Department. It is held in electronic format for statistical purposes. This information is securely collected from a range of sources including schools, local authorities and awarding bodies.
We are required by law, to provide information about our pupils to the DfE as part of statutory data collections such as the school census and early years’ census. Some of this information is then stored in the NPD. The law that allows this is the Education (Information About Individual Pupils) (England) Regulations 2013.
