Sports Day – 2015

Sports Day Information for Parents 2015

Our Sports Day on Tuesday 16th June will follow the same format as in previous years. The Sports Leaders will assist me to produce a ‘carousel’ of activities, in which every child will take part. Once again, there will be 6 events, which the classes will rotate around so that every child participates in every activity. This will be followed by sprints, cup races and the KS2 ‘Round the Green’ race.

We ask that children are promptly in school, ready in their P.E. kits with a water bottle at 8:55am for Registration. Parents are then welcome to go to the ‘spectator area’ on the Green so that Teachers can bring the children across to start the events at 9:15am. Children will stay with their Year group. You will be able to refer to the ‘Table of Events’ so that you have an idea of where your child(ren) will be at certain times throughout the morning. We kindly ask that parents remain within the spectator area so that Teachers have all of their children at all times. With moving from one event to another, it is important that classes stay together, especially with the younger children. Staff will organise drinks and taking children to the toilet. Fingers crossed for good weather! Please see me if you have any further questions.

Would you like to be a voluntary mystery shopper ??   Northamptonshire’s Police and Crime Commission is looking for volunteers to take part in two ‘mystery shopper’ schemes in the county.   The Best Bar None mystery shopper scheme is designed to help find the best town centre pub, rural pub and late night venue in Northamptonshire.
Volunteers need to be interested in the levels of safety and customer care offered by local pubs, clubs or bars, be impartial, aged 18 or over, have a good eye for detail, and able to spare an hour or more a fortnight and live in Northamptonshire.   The deadline to apply is Friday 12 June.

Secondly, volunteers are also needed to act as mystery shoppers to help improve services for victims across the county.   They must be interested in the quality of services offered to victims and witnesses, be able to follow an improvised script, aged 18 or over, be impartial, have an hour or more a month to spare and live in Northamptonshire.

Deadline for applications is Wednesday 17 June.

For more information on either scheme email: Commissioner@northantspcc.pnn.police.uk or alternatively visit: http://www.northantspcc.org.uk/#!/GetInvolved/13731
