 News Bulletin 4th March 2020


  • World Book Day – Tomorrow: A reminder the children are invited to dress up as a character from their favourite book. They are also invited to bring in a favourite picture book to share with a younger or older child during Book Buddies. We would kindly ask that you bring in a donation of £1 for our charity Street Child – buckets will be in the foyer in the morning.


  • Book Swap – Friday 6th March: We will be holding a book swap on Friday. Any child that brings a book in will be able to swap it later in the day for a different one.


  • School Strapline Competition:  Thank you to all of you that entered our strapline competition.  The entries have been gathered in and the winner will be announced in a couple of weeks.


  • PTA Second-hand Uniform – Monday 23rd March:  The PTA are holding a second-hand uniform sale before and after school on Monday 23rd March.  If you have any donations please leave them at the school office.  Please note that we only want the official uniform so no shirts, trousers, underwear or shoes please. All funds raised will go to PTA funds.  Note that you are welcome to donate on a 50/50 basis if you wish but please label up each item with your name and the amount you would like for each article of clothing.  Please speak with Mrs Warne if you have any queries regarding how this works.


  • Bag2School – Monday 23rd March:  The PTA have organised another Bag2School collection.  If you have any unwanted clothes please bring them to school no later than 9am on 23rd March.  The official bags will be circulated to you this week, however, if you have a large amount to donate black bin bags are absolutely fine.  All funds raised will go to the PTA.


  • Parent Evenings: A gentle reminder that you must either supervise your children or book them into after school club (free of charge) if you are attending a parents evening appointment.  We have had a number of issues this week with children wandering the corridor unsupervised.  Your assistance in this matter is appreciated.


  • Easter Concert:  Note that tickets are now available in the school office for the concerts.  Prep 3 & 4 – Wednesday 18th March & Prep 5 & 6 Thursday 19th March.  Tickets are free of charge, however, we request you collect the required number of tickets so we can plan and risk assess accordingly.


  • Board of Governors AGM – Thursday 12th March:  This is official notification that the AGM will take place on Thursday 12th March at 5pm.
