Newsletter Autumn Term 2018

We hope you enjoyed the summer break and welcome you back to the start of a new school
year.

Parents’ Evening

The autumn parents’ evenings will take place on Monday 15th October and Tuesday 16th
October 2018. This is an opportunity for you to meet your child’s new class teacher. Further
details to follow shortly.

Kader Academy Uniform

Kader Academy pupils are expected to wear the following uniform when attending school:
Kader Academy purple sweatshirt or cardigan (with academy logo)
Kader Academy purple polo shirt
Grey trousers, skirt or pinafore dress
Grey, black or white tights or socks (no leggings)
Sensible black shoes (not black trainers)
No jewellery (this includes earring studs)

Pierced Ears

May I take this opportunity to remind you that Governors made the decision that earrings
should not be worn by pupils at school. Your co-operation in this matter is appreciated.

Annual Pupil Photographs

The school photographer will be in school on Friday 19th October. Unfortunately, owing to
time constraints, the photographer is unable to include brothers and sisters who do not
attend Kader Academy in group photographs.

Lost Property

Please can you ensure that all your child’s clothing including PE kit is clearly named.
Unfortunately, due to lack of storage space it is not possible to keep lost property for more
than 4 weeks. If items remain unclaimed after this period they will be donated to charities. If
your child has lost anything recently please contact the school office staff.

Request for Leave of absence

The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 make it clear that any leave
of absence during term time will not be authorised unless there are exceptional
circumstances and that Head Teachers should determine the number of days a child can be
away from school if the leave is granted. Should a leave of absence be taken without prior
authorisation, a Penalty Notice may be issued by the Local Authority.

Pre-school Provision at Kader

Rosedene Nurseries provide pre-school provision at Kader during term time. Their opening
hours are from 7.45am – 5.45pm Monday to Friday. For more information please contact

Breakfast Club and After School Club

years who attend Kader Academy. For more details please contact Rosedene Nurseries on
the above number.

Lower School Playground Equipment

May I take this opportunity to remind parents that the two obstacle courses adjacent to the
Lower School playground are only for pupils to use during school hours under staff
supervision. We should therefore be grateful if parents would not allow children to use the
equipment at the beginning or end of the school day as the school cannot accept
responsibility for any incident which occurs due to unauthorised use of this apparatus. Thank
you for you co-operation with this matter.

Parking Issues

There have been a number of complaints regarding the parking of vehicles in the area
especially around school drop off and collection times. Please be considerate when parking
your vehicle in relation to residents’ driveways and the location of junctions and ensure that
you do not cause any wilful or unnecessary obstruction.
The traffic road safety vehicle has been assigned to Kader Academy and Middlesbrough
Council’s Enforcement Officer will be taking action against anyone caught parking illegally. A
fixed penalty notice will be issued.

PD Day

The school will be closed for staff training on 1st October 2018 and 5th November 2018.
Half Term – The school will close at 3.05pm on Friday 26th October and re-open at 8.40am
on Tuesday 6th November 2018.
