Newsletter – October 2023

We are looking forward to another busy and exciting half term. There are a number of important dates for you in this letter which can also be found on the school website.

Poppy appeal

We are pleased to be supporting The Royal British Legion once again this year with their poppy appeal. We will be selling poppies in the school office for a donation as well as a number of additional items which are priced between £1.00 and £1.50.

Children in Need (CiN)

On Friday 17th November we will have a wear what you would like day (suitable for school) which could include pyjamas to support the BBC Children in Need appeal or super hero outfits to celebrate the launch of our Monster Phonics super hero themed spelling scheme– donations for CiN will be very gratefully received on the day. As the children will still go outside for break and lunch time, it is really important that they are warm and have sensible footwear. From Monday 13th November we will have some Children in Need merchandise such as pens, wrist bands and Pudsey ears for sale at the school office priced between £1.00 and £2.50.

Water bottles

Please ensure that your child brings in a water bottle every day which must only contain water. Children can bring in a carton or bottle of juice as part of their packed lunch.
Parking near to the school
Neighbours have shared their concerns regarding some inappropriate parking at the beginning and end of the school day where driveways and access to properties have been blocked. They have informed the local council and police. They have advised us that they have been told to photograph any inconsiderate parking and send this information to the local council.
Please support us in maintaining positive relationships with our neighbours by parking considerately.

Breakfast Club

Please ensure that places for Breakfast Club are booked in advance using the Arbor system.

Inset days 2023 / 24

Friday 24th November 2023, Monday 22nd July and Tuesday 23rd July will be inset days and school will be closed for the children.

Book and uniform shop

We will have our book shop and pre-loved uniform shop open in the school hall at 3.15pm on Thursday 23rd November. Both books and pre-loved uniform will also be on sale at our Christmas Fair in December. This is the perfect opportunity to pick up some books for Christmas presents at the very reasonable price of £1.50. Pre-loved school uniform is available with items starting at 50p. Please do make sure that you have cash for this event.
Donations of pre-loved uniform are always very gratefully received. Please send items in with your children or drop them off at the school office.

With very best wishes,

Elizabeth Cooper
