Newsletter 8 - 3rd November 2023

Dear Parents and Carers,

We do hope you all enjoyed your half term week.


Sporting Fixtures

We are glad to be able to, once again, take part in sporting competitions with other local schools. It’s a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to develop confidence and experience competition in a supportive environment. Please keep an eye on the Sports tab in the Children’s Zone of our website for information about upcoming fixtures.


Miss Harding will send further information out to relevant classes closer to the time for you to register interest to take part.


Well done to our teams that have enjoyed taking part in competitions so far this term!


Anti-Bullying Week

As we do every year, we will be taking part in the national Anti-Bullying week. It is the week of 13th November and the theme this year is ‘Make a Noise About Bullying’. 

We are asking the children to wear odd socks on Monday 13th November to show that we are all unique and different but we celebrate those differences.

Each class will be focusing on this theme throughout the week in various age-appropriate ways.


We are currently reviewing our Behaviour Policy and our Anti-Bullying Policy so we will make you aware once they have been approved.


If your child is experiencing friendship difficulties, or bullying type behaviour at school, please don’t hesitate to share your concerns with their class teacher in the first instance.


Enjoy the weekend,


Mrs Griffith

Swimming Gala

On Wednesday 18th October, Inez, Maya, Neive, Aidan, Xander (Y6) and Mia (Y5) went to a swimming gala at St Georges, Ascot with Mrs Hunter as our head cheerleader.

We took part in individual races, two team medleys and a fun relay. The fun relay included all 6 of us splitting into pairs with a surfboard , pushing whilst swimming from end to end and passing it to the next pair. This was as fun as it's name!      

There were 6 schools in the competition and we came 3rd overall, giving us each a medal.

Sam's Skipping Challenge

Sam in Year 5 completed his October Skipping Challenge raising £450 for Cancer Research UK. Sam completed 3100 skips - 100 on each day of October.  Well done Sam!

12 Days of Christmas Children’s Advent Appeal

Woking and Sam Beare Hospice are appealing for donations of NEW or GOOD CONDITION children’s Christmas books.  The Hospice has a stall this year at their Christmas Market on Saturday 2nd December selling ’The 12 days of Christmas Children’s Advent books”.  The idea is for children to open one book each day on the 12-day lead up to Christmas as a sustainable alternative to an advent calendar.


Books will be collected up until Friday 18th November 2023 when they will then be taken to the Hospice warehouse for wrapping.  A box will be available in the office for donations.


This is one of the charities we will be supporting this term and I thank you for your support.
