To Harley, Nnenna and Mariam in year 5 for being recalled for a second audition for the Trust’s production of Les Miserables. Good luck!

Although parking seems to be a little better, we are still experiencing problems with people blocking neighbours driveways when dropping off and collecting children from school. 

We also ask that parents do not park at the top of the driveway on the zig-zag yellow lines. They are there to keep everyone safe and should not be obstructed at any time.  Thank you.

– Please do not let your children play on the equipment in the Year 1 playground before or after school while waiting for siblings to be released from other classes for health and safety reasons. There have been sightings of children using the slide without supervision after school this week.  
– Friday 9th December is Christmas jumper and Christmas dinner day.  We can not accept any more Christmas dinner orders now for packed lunch children as the order has been placed by the kitchen.
– There will be no After School Care on Wednesday 14th and Friday 16th December 
Assemblies and Parent Coffee and Chat

Thank you to all the parents who joined us for our Celebration Assembly this morning, you are welcome to join us in our Friday assemblies. Our assemblies start at 9am so the hall doors will be open 5 minutes before.

Parents’ Coffee and Chat has now started up. It will take place straight after assembly on a Friday. It will not be every week so dates will be shared on our newsletters. The next Coffee and Chat will be on Friday 9th December.

Please come along and find out what is happening in school 🙂.

Family Support and Information

Christmas Toy Appeal
We should be receiving the Christmas Toy Appeal sacks early next week. If you registered your request to receive a toy sack with Mrs Stacey, she will be in touch for when is best to collect your children’s sacks. 

Help and Support
Please remember that if you require support with food for you and your families, please speak to Mrs Stacey
who can facilitate you with support and offer information regarding Local Food Banks, Community Larders
and Community Fridges.

We also still have some emergency hampers available. These hampers are available in crisis situations when access to external agencies and services is unavailable. We hope that having these emergency hampers on site will prevent any of our families from going hungry.
