The older children are working really hard towards their production of “The Tempest” and I know you will enjoy their endeavours.
The dress rehearsal takes place on Monday, 18th July when Crayke Playgroup will be coming to join us. The first performance is on Tuesday, 19th July at 2.00pm, with the evening performance starting at 6.00pm on Wednesday, 20th July.
Most of the children will wear their costumes home after Tuesday afternoon’s performance, so for Wednesday evening’s performance, we would like these children to be back at school promptly by 5.15pm already dressed in their costumes.
Children in Class 1 & 2 will have the opportunity to see the production during school time on the Monday morning. Due to the popularity of the summer production, both the afternoon and evening performances are extremely busy and we would be grateful, therefore, if younger children who have already seen the performance could refrain from attending again in the evening.
The hall is always very full for the evening performance so, if possible, I would be grateful if as many people as possible could take advantage of the Tuesday afternoon performance. Please remember to park in Crayke Sports Hall on both occasions to ease the traffic congestion and enter the school via the front entrance.
Fire Safety Procedures during School Events
Although fires are thankfully a very rare occurrence in schools, everyone needs to be aware of what to do in an emergency situation. This section is to inform you of what to do in the event of a fire or power cut during a school event such as the summer performance or a parents’ evening.
If everyone is in the school hall for an event and there is an emergency, then the two hall doors that lead on to the playground are for parents to use to exit the building. If you are in a classroom, then please exit by the nearest exit point, which will be one of the following:
Class 1’s cloakroom exit (Mrs. Sheppard’s)
Junior cloakroom exit
The assembly point for everyone is the school playground. The pupils will leave via the front entrance, Class 1 and the junior cloakroom doors. Children will be evacuated from the school by the school staff. The children must assemble outside in their class lines, so that they can all be accounted for. Parents should go and stand with their children. I must stress the importance of keeping children in their class lines; so that staff can do a head count.
