The RSA work hard each year to create and run school community events and raise funds for our school and our children. Last year, across multiple events over £26,000 was raised. At the end of last year, we said a big thank you to Estelle Pearce for her dedicated leadership as chairperson and on Friday the RSA will be electing a new chairperson. Under the Charity Commission rules, there has to be a chairperson or the RSA will not be able to operate, which would be a great shame. If this is of interest to you and you have the capacity to carry out the role, then please do consider it. As a school, we will be delighted to support the new Chair so that the planned events can continue in the year ahead.
Thank You, Mr Kelsey

The Nursery are making string telephones and would be grateful if anyone has any empty yoghurt pots they could bring in to school.
This year, flu immunisations will take place on the morning of Tuesday 19th November and will be for reception to Year 6.
The letters have been sent home explaining what will happen. Please sign and return the consent form as soon as possible. Even if you do not wish your child to receive the vaccination please still sign and return clearly marking the form 'NO'' so that the school nurse team are able to compile their data. If you have any queries please contact the Immunisation Team whose number is on the letter.
Calling all Electricians!
Within Early Years we are very creative and love using empty cable reels for a multitude of things. If you have any please donate them and we turn them into amazing creations.
Friday, 4th October
RSA AGM, Coffee Morning and Second Hand Uniform Sale, after morning drop off in the Infant Refectory. Everyone is welcome to come along and hear reports of RSA activities for last year and vote for new committee members for next year. It's a great way to meet people and get to know the other parents in your class.
Urgent - Vacancy
We need someone (can be a shared role) to take on the role of Chairperson for the RSA for this year, or else events will have to be cancelled. This person is responsible for overseeing the fundraising activities and working with the school to agree fundraising goals. There is a great team of people already on the committee that will help. If you are a stay at home parent and thinking of returning to work in the future, this role can provide great experience for your CV. Nomination forms are available from the school office or on the school website and can be handed in beforehand or nominations can be made at the meeting.
Christmas Fair, Saturday 7th December 11am - 3pm
There was a fabulous turnout for the Christmas Fair meeting on Friday and we are pleased to say that a team of more than 20 parents have taken on the coordination and organisation of all things Christmas! Watch this space and make sure you are on classlist to see how you can join in on the fun. In the meantime SAVE THE DATE :)
Don't forget to sign up to Classlist which is our primary way of communicating with parents. Click on www.classlist.com and select The Raglan Schools. IF your child was in Nursery, Year 1 or Year 4 last year please ensure you have updated their class info or else you might miss out on class information.
To help with communication we ask for a Class Rep from each class. It mainly involves keeping people informed of RSA activities and doesn't take much time. Thanks to everyone that has already replied but we still require reps for R1, R4 and 3BA. Please get in touch as soon as possible.
