Friday update

Happy Friday,


I hope you have all had a good week.


We started our week with a visit from Sam Oldham, the England squad gymnast, which the children were super excited about. 


I have put some information under the key info tab on the website -safeguarding - in online safeguarding about keeping children safe whilst playing Fortnite. It has some useful information.


A reminder that children can only bring mobile phones to school if they need them when walking to or from school for their own safety and these will be kept secure until the end of the day. Once on school grounds children should not be on their phones. Thank you for your understanding with this.


We have completed our risk assessments to allow the children to move around to meet their new teachers next week as we feel this is an important element to enable the children to transition happily. They will go to their new classrooms on Thursday for an hour.


We will be posting online 'meet the teacher' powerpoints for parents on the 9th July in new class pages. We are planning to hold a meet the teacher in person on September 8th at 3.30 for parents. (This is assuming restrictions are lifted).


PE uniform

For clarity about the PE uniform for September as I've had a couple of queries..

We are asking for a red t shirt, black joggers or leggings and a black sports type hoodie/jacket. All should be picture free except for the school logo where applicable.

Shorts should be of an appropriate length.

Our stockists are Just Schoolwear and We are waiting for them to let us know if they can supply the hoodie/jacket but you should be able to find everything else fairly easily.

Hope this helps.


I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
