Maspalomas Newsletter

T2_Newsletter_MaspalomasDear Parents: we are very pleased with the way the children have settled back into school and adapted to the new routines and protocols, and we would like to thank you all for your support.


• On Wednesday 21st October school photos will be taken. Y1-Y6 pupils need to come to school in their winter uniform (school skirt or grey trousers, green polo, navy socks and shoes) and there will be no PE on this day.

• On Friday 30th October we will be celebrating Halloween in school, in a fun way, as usual on this day. Children may come to school wearing a Halloween costume and they will be doing activities related to the theme in class during the day. Please do not bring food/drinks to share this year.

• We remind you that the school will be closed for holidays on Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd November due to Half Term.

We remind you that if your child is absent for any reason you must email the office on the first day of absence ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).

• Any questions you have in relation to your child's education, be it academic, social or emotional should be directed to their class teacher.
• Matters related to school organisation, administration or medical information should be directed to the office, preferably by sending an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or calling 928 14 28 89.
• Questions related to the school bus service are dealt with directly by Amanda Bus whose telephone number is 928 22 48 38.

If you would like an appointment with one of the teachers please email the office with the details ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).

We remind you that the school day begins at 8:30am. Children should be in school before this time. Punctuality is important, as children who arrive late interrupt the class and often miss the explanation at the beginning of a lesson.

Parents are responsible for their own children's safety and behavior once they have been handed over at the end of the day. In order to avoid possible accidents and mixing children from different 'bubbles', we request all families to please leave school promptly when you have collected your child. Children should not be running around or playing in the school grounds, including the exit and parking areas, at the end of the school day.

To ensure your child's safety we are unable to hand over any child to another parent/carer unless we are able to identify that person and have clear written permission prior to the end of the day. If your child is being collected by a different person, parents must send this in writing by email to the school office, with a copy of their ID document.

Due to the Covid restrictions in place for schools we will not be offering after school activities this term. We will continue to review the situation and hope to resume activities after school whenever we are able to.

For safety reasons, if your child has to take any medication during the school day it is vital you take the medication and instructions on how to administer it to the office. You may use the authorisation form published on the web (Information/School forms/Authorisation of Prescribed medication). Children should not keep medication in their school bags.

As we have several children across the school with severe nut allergies and kiwi allergies, we would like the school to be a nut-free and kiwi-free zone. Please do not send kiwi or nuts of any description (peanuts, almonds, pistachos....) or food containing nuts with your child to school.

If you would like your child to celebrate his/her birthday at school and you decide to send a cake (commercially packaged from a shop or bakery) please remember to send paper plates and spoons too. Remember, due to Covid-19 protocols, candles and "party bags" to give out to the other children in the class to take home may not be brought to school this year.

Due to health and hygiene laws, we can't accept home-made products: biscuits, cakes, cookies, etc. Any products you send in should be commercially packaged.

We remind you that all clothing items should be labelled or marked with your child's name in order to facilitate return in case of misplacement.


Kind regards,

Natalia García
Canterbury School of Maspalomas
