Circular 14/2021

Dear Parent

As Term 3 Assessment week draws to a close, please ensure that your son/daughter attends school regularly according to the Red/Blue Programme as from Monday, 20 September 2021. Regular attendance is essential in order for educators to complete the Academic Programme for Term 3.


We thank all parents who have supported our fundraising initiatives during Term 3, especially the “Raffle”. These fundraising initiatives are essential in assisting us to provide the necessary resources needed to ensure we maintain quality education at York Road Primary.

It is disappointing to note that many learners are still arriving late for school, some as late as 08h40. This is in contravention of WCED Policy. Many learners are also collected well after dismissal times.

Please be punctual when dropping and fetching your children as they will not be supervised after school. Collecting children after dismissal times places your child at risk.


Please do not park at the access gates or on the bend in Lower York Road. Parking is available in all the side streets. Park away from the Access gates and walk your child to the entrance. It is our intention to maintain our positive relationship with our school neighbours so please do not park across their driveways or block the access to their premises


Thank you to all parents who are courteous and respectful towards our safety officers, staff, neighbours and other road users. We appreciate your patience and co-operation.


Reports will be issued on Thursday 30th September 2021 to Red Group and on Friday 01st October 2021 to the Blue Group. No Reports will be issued prior to the dismissal time for the relevant Grades.
