Friday updates

Happy Friday all!


I can hardly believe we are at the end of week 3 in the second term!

But they do say time flies when you are having fun!


The last 2 terms so far have been a whirlwind of activity, we celebrated Remembrance and supported Children in Need and donated to the food bank through our Harvest collection- all as a community. Next week we look forward to our special visitor and the Christmas fair on Friday. Raffle tickets will be on sale by the PTA after school at the front of school.


We recognise that Christmas can be a trying time for many families and would like to sign post you to the Manna food boxes available at All Saints church or St Johns.. You can register for the boxes either online here or at the church itself. The boxes cost £6.00 and are packed with a range of fresh and dry produce of a much higher value. You need to have registered to pick up a box so that they know how many to prepare.


A little reminder at this busy time to make sure you have appropriate filters on your children's internet access. Support for online safety can be found here:

We have been seeing an increase in inappropriate content -this is filtering through on sites such as Minecraft and Roblox-this is usually where the children are watching other users/gamers play the game who are then commenting on it using inappropriate language or background noises.  It is worth being aware of this.


Lastly a thank you to all the parents who sent well wishes for staff and donations for our colleague's memorial collection. We really appreciate the understanding and compassion that was shown at this difficult time.


I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
