Message from Sycamore Parent Rep

Hi Sycamore Parents,

Debbie Harvey (Jessica’s mum) and I (Holly’s mum) have volunteered to be Parent Reps for Sycamore Class this year. For those of you who we haven’t met before, we’re looking forward to getting to know you!

We’re sending this email via the School Office, as the school isn’t permitted to divulge everyone’s contact info…but hopefully we can put together an email distribution ourselves from this point onwards. Please find below a few items for you:

Parent Contact List/ Facebook group

We’d like to put together a Contact List, which we’ll share with everyone in case you want to arrange playdates etc.

If you’d like to be added to the list, please could you email me ( with your email address, mobile number and child’s name?

Also, for anyone not yet part of the Facebook group, we have a group set-up for this Reception Year Group.

If you’d like to be invited to join, please let us know.

Forest School

We hope that your little ones are enjoying Forest School so far! I’m delighted to say that we have parent helpers identified right through to the end of term – thank you! If anyone else would like to help at a session, please do get in touch though.

Also, we’ll be looking for more helpers after Christmas, so please do get in touch if you’re able to help on a Monday afternoon, 1-3pm.

Parent Rep Meetings

As a Parent Rep we’ll attend meetings with Mr Garner once every half term, to raise any questions/concerns on behalf of our class, and to provide you all with an update after the meeting.

The first meeting for this year took place on 20th October and the Minutes have been posted to the Burford website:

The next meeting is scheduled for 8th December. If you have anything that you’d like us to raise, please do get back to Debbie and/or me.

Many thanks,

Debbie & Shona /

Sycamore Class – Parents’ Help

Message from Sycamore Class Rep

Dear Sycamore Class Parents,

Hello! We just wanted to drop you a line to introduce ourselves as the Sycamore Class reps for this year. I’m Karen and mum to Tannis’ and Debs is mum to Finley.

Being a Class rep means we will aim to keep all parents in the loop about matters relating to our class or year group, as a result of attending the class representative meetings, which are held regularly throughout the school year. We intend to work closely together so anything you say to one of us, should filter to the other.

Due to confidentiality reasons, the school cannot give us your contact details so if you would like to be on our class mailing list and to be in touch with all other parents in our class/year group, please would you email Karen back (email address below) with your name and child’s name and ideally your mobile number too. I will then put a list together of all parents and their contact details which I will email out to our class.

If you want to be kept informed of all school-related information but don’t want to share your contact details, that’s fine, just let me know when you email back.

Hopefully, we will all get to meet each other properly over the coming weeks/months not only as a class but as a year group too.

Our first teacher request is that we each bring in a box of tissues, as the weather is getting colder there are more colds around and I can’t imagine how many tissues 30 children get through in a day!

Also there is a social on the horizon, our first Reception Mums’ Night Out.  A few people have suggested getting together for drinks next Friday 9th October in Baroosh in Marlow from 8pm.  I realise this is relatively short notice so if you can’t make it, don’t worry, we will definitely arrange another night out soon. But if you can, great! I will send an update on this next week.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

All best,

Karen Whittaker E. M. 07887702173
