Newsletter 33 - 9th June 2023

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back to the last term of the year – hasn’t the weather just been glorious! 


Thank you for all your donations of clothes this week for Bags 2 School – it’s a great fundraiser.  This time you raised over £192 for the PTA!


Living our Vision Award

It was a privilege to award a group of pupils this morning a certificate for Living our Vision.  Inspired by learning about Plastic Pollution in Class, the children researched national charities in the UK who campaign to reduce plastic in our own seas.  The children volunteered to litter pick around Sunningdale as a sponsored event and raised £320 for the charity Surfers Against Sewage.   What a wonderful example of courageous advocacy and living our vision of being happy and doing good.  Well done.  Please see the photos further down on the newsletter.

Living Our Vision in the Community

Year 5 studied plastic pollution in English last half term and researched some charities that aim to reduce its impact. One such charity is Surfers Against Sewage. They decided to raise money to help. Amelie, Edie, Neive, Inez and Ariya fundraised by litter picking in the local community. They raised over £300! We are all very proud of you. You’re truly living our vision of ‘Being Happy and Doing Good’.

Cailyn and Cerys do the Pretty Mudder!

Cailyn from Year 3 completed the Pretty Mudder for Kids part of Race for Life last Sunday with her sister. She ran through loads of mud and had to go through lots of obstacles too! She managed to raise and amazing £120 for Cancer research!
Well done Cailyn and Cerys!

School Production - Clothes Rails Needed

The school production costume department (Mrs Hunter and team) need 4 or 5 sturdy clothes rails and a number of clothes hangers to manage the costumes for the school play.  Might you be able to lend a clothes rail?  Or hangers?  If so please call Mrs Lawson on 01344 620716.  Thanks very much.

Vacancies at Charters School

Charters School are seeking part-time or full time Teaching Assistants to join us them in September 2023.  If you are interested please see their website here for further details.


Please do not book holidays or family days during term time.  Missing even one or two days of school can be detrimental to your child's learning as key information is missed. Friendships are also affected.  Holiday absences will show up as persistent absence which is checked by Ofsted when they visit and monitored closely each half term by the Education Welfare Officer at RBWM.  Looking ahead, it is almost certain that the Government will require fixed penalty notices and associated fines to be issued for holiday taken during school term time.  The current penalty is £60, per day, per child, per parent if paid within a certain number of days.  So 5 days off for a holiday for two children would result in a fine of £1200 at the current rate.

Ascot School Fundraiser

Please see details of the next School Fundraiser below.  If you or any family or friends are buying Queen Anne Enclosure tickets for the races on Saturday 15th July, we'd be so grateful if you could use our school code HTSCHOOL.  We will then receive 25% of the value of the ticket as cashback.
