Friday update

Happy Friday everyone - although the weather is less than sunny!


There is a letter from the PTA under the news and events tab - letters home. The annual general meeting is taking place on Monday 28th at 7.30 and you are invited to attend. The PTA is a valued part of our school community, supporting activities for the children and raising funds for the school. Please consider joining us and making a difference to the children and the school community.

Please see the letter for more details.


Wrap club has spaces for the summer holiday if any parent needs child care. The club is running for the full 6 weeks this summer.


It would appear that numbers of infection are rising again and although we are hopeful that most people affected will not now be too ill, the prevalence seems to be in younger children from 4 to 12 and young adults. We do therefore need to continue to be cautious as we don't want any of our little people becoming ill. We are continuing to follow all guidance and asking for support where necessary.


Please remember no dogs are allowed on school premises or to be tied to school railings. Thank you for your consideration with this.


There is a letter detailing family THRIVE sessions under the news and events tab-letters home. As a school THRIVE is a valued part of our well being offer and parents can access this course to support them with a wide range of issues or just to find out a little bit more about the program itself. Please see the letter for more details.


Thank you to all parents who have taken on board the PE kit request. Our PE kit is available from our stockists and we ask that you bear this in mind when renewing any school uniforms. From September we ask that the pe kit is a red t shirt with black shorts or joggers. Shorts should be an appropriate length -if lycra type shorts these must be mid thigh length. As the children now come in their kits-something which we will continue in September as it has positively impacted on active time-kits must be seen as part of school uniform and should be smart and appropriate. This will also mean that once we are able to start participating in events and competitions the children will all be identifiable and smartly representing our school.


On tuesday we took part in the young voices biggest sing. Go to twitter to see some pictures of this.


I hope you all have a lovely weekend and I hope the football tonight is a win!

(in the interests of inclusivity I'm not saying who for. ;D
