Newsletter 16 - 12th January 2024

Dear Parents and Carers,

Well it’s definitely winter now! Please do remember to send your child in with at least a coat on these cold days.


I’m sure you’ve heard on the news this week the importance of school attendance. Thank you for all your support in this – we have seen a reduction in requests for term time holiday absence. Please continue to plan your holidays out of term time.


There will, of course, be times that your child is unwell. This guidance here may help you with your decision about sending them into school or not.

Please don’t hesitate to talk to your child’s teacher in the first instance if you have any concerns about your child.


Bags 2 School

We will be collecting unwanted clothing and other items for a collection on Tuesday 16th January at 9am. This is a good fundraiser for us so please do have a clear out over the next few days if you can.


Enjoy the weekend,


Mrs Griffith

Census Day - Change to Published Lunch Menu

Thursday 18th January is Census Day in school.  Three times a year on specific days, the government collects lots of data items from every school in the country including information which determines school funding.  The number of children who order a school lunch on census day, especially in KS1, affects how much money we receive to fund universal free school meals. To increase take up, the menu for next Thursday has been changed to Chicken Nuggets, Vegetable Nuggets or Jacket Potato.  It would really help us if your child could order a school lunch next Thursday - thank you for your help with this. 

Bags 2 School - Tuesday 16th January by 9am

This is always a great earner for us - please do have a clear out if you can using any bags and leave these by the main gates (we'll start the pile so you will see where) by 9am at the latest.  Please don't include items which Bags 2 School don't collect.  All the bags are checked before they're taken away and rogue items are removed for us to dispose of.  We pay for our waste collection by weight so instead of being weighed for income for school, these items are weighed and we have to pay to have them taken away!

Please click here to see what can and can't be included.  As well as clothing, you can include paired shoes, handbags, hats, bags, jewellery, belts, soft toys, household linen, curtains, towels and sheets.
