Newsletter 8 - 3rd November 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

We hope you all enjoyed a (soggy) half term break.


Many of you have asked how you can best support your child with their writing development. As you may be aware, we use The Write Stuff approach to teaching writing and then offer opportunities for the children to write in many other subjects. We have found this approach to be really supportive for children to improve their writing.


In order to provide you with some information about The Write Stuff, Miss Harding has organised writing workshops for parents of children from Year 2 to Year 6 on  Tuesday 22nd November 5 – 6pm. Please choose the year group you'd most like to attend.


These will take place in classrooms giving you an opportunity to look at your child’s books as well.


We really hope you’re able to come along to find out how you can best support your child in their development.  We will not be able to accommodate children at the meetings due to numbers so please arrange alternative childcare.

We are delighted to be taking singing volunteers from Years 5 and 6 to this event in Broomhall Park on Friday 25th November at 4pm. We look forward to seeing many of you there!


Christmas Fair

Wishing you all a lovely Bonfire Weekend.

Mrs Griffith

Message from RBWM

Are you struggling with the rising cost of living?

If you’re struggling due to the rising cost of living and facing difficult decisions around food, rent or heating, please remember to seek support before you reach crisis point.

The Royal Borough’s ‘Here to Help’ campaign is continuing to highlight the latest local and national support that can help residents struggling with the rising cost of living, including support from community partners.


‘Here to Help’ first launched in May and brings together a range of cost of living support from the council and various partners onto one dedicated webpage, covering energy and water bills, rent, council tax, food, childcare, school meals, benefits and more.

If you are struggling financially, please check out the dedicated 'Here to Help' webpage as soon as possible, contact the council, your landlord and energy supplier, to see what help might be available to you. If you don’t have online access, you can also use the public-access computers at local libraries or call 01628 683800.


Safe, warm spaces for the community

Did you know that there is an emerging network of safe, warm spaces within the borough where people in need can go this winter for advice and support? Visit for a map of locations and further details.

In addition, all local libraries are safe places for the community. You are welcome to visit to use library facilities, explore the ‘Here to Help’ website on the public-access computers and speak with a librarian for advice around cost of living support and/or getting online.
