Newsletter – March 2024

As we approach the end of another busy and exciting term, we are looking forward to the lighter days, warmer weather and hopefully a chance for the children to begin playing on the school field.


At the end of this term we say a sad farewell to Mrs Pilgrim, who has been an integral part of our school community for the past 28 years. Her dedication and support to the staff, children and families at Warren Park have been nothing short of exceptional. I am sure you will join me in expressing our deepest gratitude and warmest wishes to Mrs Pilgrim as she embarks on an exciting new chapter in her life.

We would like to congratulate Mrs Banbury who has been appointed as the new Year R Leader from after Easter. Parents of children in classes where there is staff change have been sent a more detailed letter explaining the process of transition.

Vocal Ambassadors

Last week our Vocal Ambassadors represented Warren Park at the Hampshire Music Service ‘Choir Spectacular’ at the Anvil Arts Centre in Basingstoke. There were a number of choirs performing and our Vocal Ambassadors joined with those from other schools to perform in front of a packed audience. It was an amazing evening and a very joyous celebration of song. We were very proud of our Vocal Ambassadors and they shared their experience with the rest of the school in assembly this week.

Red Nose Day

On Friday 15th March, we will be supporting Red Nose Day. Children are invited to come to school in non-uniform, wearing something red, and to bring in a donation for this fantastic charity. We are also selling red noses in the school office at £2 each. As the theme is ‘do something funny for money’ we hope the children will enter into the spirit and have lots of fun during the day.

Autism Parent Workshop

On Wednesday 27th March at 1.30 pm, INclude will be running a parent Autism workshop at the school to raise awareness and provide support for parents. The team will be available to offer advice, answer questions and provide information. There is no need to book in advance so please do just come along.

Parent Focus Group

We will be hosting a parent focus group meeting open to all parents and carers on Thursday 25th April at 2pm. This will be an opportunity for us to seek your views on areas that we are currently developing as well as a chance for you to ask any questions over a cup of tea or coffee. A strong home school partnership is something that we really value and we look forward to working together to ensure that your children benefit from the very best education that we can provide. Members of the school’s governing body will also be present to share their involvement in school life and consider how we can further strengthen the relationship between home and school.

Year 5 Activity Week

We hope that our Year 5 children enjoy their up-and-coming Activity Week whether they are going on the residential trip to Avon Tyrrell in the New Forest or taking part in the exciting week of activities at school. This is a really important opportunity for the children to explore learning beyond the curriculum through a really exciting range of activities which develop their independence, resilience and capacity to work collaboratively as part of a team. We will keep our fingers crossed for fine weather and I’m sure they will have a fantastic time and create lasting memories.

Easter Raffle

Tickets for the end of term Easter Egg Raffle will go on sale from Monday 18th March. Tickets will be £1.00 for a strip of 5 with many chocolatey delights available for the lucky winners.

Breakfast Club

Please ensure that places for Breakfast Club are booked and paid for in advance using the Arbor system. We are currently often full and may now not be able to accommodate any children who turn up without a booked place.

Inset days 2024

Monday 22nd July and Tuesday 23rd July will be inset days and school will be closed for the children.
Just a reminder that the spring term finishes on Thursday 28th March and we will look forward to
welcoming the children back for the start of the summer term on Monday 15th April.

With very best wishes,

Elizabeth Cooper
