Well done to everyone who took part in our, ‘crack-ing’, egg-citing, Easter Egg Art Competition. We were all so impressed by the incredibly high levels of creativity and detail. There were so many different designs I am sure the judges had a very hard job choosing the winners. Thank you all for your hard work and have a lovely holiday.

“Rather than taking a free gift or chocolate during the advent period, pupils of Ripple Primary School in Suffolk Road, Barking, spent each day from December 3 to 15 contributing toys, books, and games for the borough’s poverty-stricken.”

If you have any unwanted school uniform that will fit Nursery and Reception please could you drop it off at school and ask that it could be forwarded to Vikki Whitby (Assistant Head teacher and Phase Leader for EYFS). Any help would be very gratefully received. Thank you very much.

Pokémon Go: a parent’s guide Tips and advice for keeping children safe on Pokémon Go
- Meeting people they don’t know face-to-face
The game is designed to bring people together. Usually strangers. So you never know who they might meet.
- There’s a physical risk
It’s easy to forget to look where you’re going with this game, but they need to be careful of where they end up. There are already stories of people being lured to places that aren’t safe for children.
- It can cost a lot of money
There are in-app purchases and other incentives which can cost up to £79.99 (14,500 Pokécoins). Make sure the app’s set up without payment options.
- Access to personal data
Pokémon Go asks for personal information like your child’s birth date and email address, which they’re asked to enter or receive through social media accounts. Parents have the right to contact the creators to stop them from using their personal information.
We are very concerned with the punctuality of your child, and we are writing to you to ask you to work with the school to improve this. Certificates are given out weekly in assembly and unfortunately, your child’s class are not receiving any because of the amount of lateness.
Please find below the new Late Letter.
Please note: Yr6 trip to the London Dungeon will still take place for 6SB and 6RR and the Trewern trip will not be effected.
It’s with a great deal of pride that Ripple Primary School can report that, following the recent ofsted inspection in May 2016, the school has been awarded: GOOD with OUTSTANDING features.
Many congratulations to all the staff, pupils, governors, parents and the wider community for all your hard work in making Ripple Primary School such a wonderful place to attend.
Sharon, the School Cook at Westbury Site, attended our School Council meeting today (5.5.16) and heard the concerns that school councillors have about the amount of food waste at lunchtimes. The menus were discussed and a Tasting Session is going to be planned in the near future to make sure that the right things are on the menus. We will then need to speak to Mr Mitchell about us creating a bespoke Ripple Menu in the future!
Wonderful news for Ripple Primary School and one of its pupils, Sajid, who is in Year 2.
