Daily update 6th January 2020

Monday 6th January 2020

Welcome back to Term 3.  We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and wish you all a very Happy New Year!

LOOK SMART, ACT SMART, THINK SMART – school uniform A reminder that shoes for both girls and boys should be black  - there is no variation to this. Boys who are opting to wear leather trainers (most Clarks shoes tend to look a bit trainers these days!) must ensure that they are black, leather style with no other colours on. Some children have been wearing Vans style pumps with white soles and bumpers. These are not acceptable. If this starts to become an issue we will have to revert to having the ‘just black shoes – no trainers’ rule again. Please support us in ensuring that you children look smart and wear our uniform with pride.

AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS – will start this week with the exception of Doodle Maths which will start next Tuesday.  If your child is attending an outdoor Club, please ensure that they bring with them appropriate clothing eg tracksuit bottoms, warm top etc.  Outdoor clubs will be run weather dependant, should we need to cancel due to the weather conditions we will text you to let you know. 

Clubs run from 3.15pm – 4.15pm.  Although Doodle Maths finishes at 4pm, Handball/Basketball finishes at 4pm and Pottery Club finishes at 4.30pm.

We still have spaces available on Quick Sticks Hockey for Years 2,3&4.  This Club will hopefully start next Tuesday 14th January.

We have had to make a change to Reading Club and this will now take place on a Tuesday and NOT Monday.

DINNER MONIES – could we please ask that all dinner monies are paid for in advance.  Dinners are £2.15 per day or £10.75 per week.

SCHOOL DINNERS – please find attached a copy of the Spring Menu 2020.

ADVENT SLEEPOVER - Thank you to all the parents and staff who were kind enough to sponsor the group from St Mary’s Church, who slept in tents in the churchyard on December 6th. With your generous support we were able to raise £1300 for the Church Urban Fund to help homeless people in the area. The shelters this money provides offer a safe bed for a night, a hot meal and a chance to wash, which is so often not available to those who are homeless. Thank you so much for helping us do this, and therefore raising awareness of this serious situation on our streets.
