We at Caslon Primary Community School are aware that keeping our children hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the school day. As a result, we decided to invest in watercoolers from AquAid. Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our school the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
This means that for each machine that we have, we have donated £20 per year per cooler to the Africa Trust. Through our contributions to the Africa Trust, an ‘Elephant Pump’ will be installed in Africa on our behalf. This pump will bring much needed, clean, fresh drinking water and improve the quality of life of those who will have access to our well. Our school’s name will be displayed proudly on our well and we look forward to adding a photo and a letter of thanks from the villagers to our website in the near future. To date AquAid has built over 8,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia; and have donated in excess of £15 million to charity.
Building Work As you are can see around our building, we now have scaffolding we are about to start works next week on a new roof for the school, this project will take us all the way through until the 31st August. Please be mindful when moving around the site.
PE kits need to be in school and this includes, blue shorts, yellow t-shirt and school pumps. Please can I remind parents that the carpark is for the use of school staff and visitors only and should not be accessed by parents without prior agreement with the Headteacher.
Hometime If another parent is picking up your child you must inform us via the school office, so we can let staff
know. Children will not be allowed to go with another adult unless this we have been notified.
Attendance is vital to a child’s education and please parents can we ask you contact the office on
the first day of your child’s absence and if they need to go to the doctors, medical evidence must be
provided to ensure a child’s absence is recorded.
