Term 6 is well underway and with so many trips, events and themed weeks please expect lots of emails and information to be sent to you all!

The start of the fundraising for Mary Poppins is starting this week – with a Non-Uniform Day this Friday (14th June) and the sale of ice lollies after school every Friday this term. All lollies will be priced at 50p and Non-Uniform will be £1.

 

Celebrating 20 years

The school year 2019-2020 is the 20th anniversary of our school being open J We have grown from an initial team of just 6 staff and mixed classes with just 57 children to now having 34 members of staff and 206 children. We have various celebrations planned for the year. We are having a whole school photo taken in September which will be available to buy.

Science Week

The Explorer Dome was a great success and all the children loved the experience. Photos from Science Week to follow…

Apologies if ParentMail showed that you had not paid the £2 when you had – this was a glitch with the system. Anyone who paid twice in error will receive a refund.

Save the Date!

The Clifton Diocese Education Mass is on Tuesday 25th June @ 7pm at Clifton Cathedral. It would be lovely to see as many parents, children and governors as possible at the Mass to represent our school.

PE Kit

All children should have a full school PE kit in school at all times. When children do not have theirs, we try to provide them with any missing items but cannot always guarantee that we have the right sizes and quantities needed when lots of children are missing things for the same lesson! If you have any old PE kit that you would be happy to donate to our “spare box”, please drop into the office.

 

Taste of the Nations Evening

Friday 14th June  6-8pm

 This is a very popular FOSM event and lots of people have signed up to make delicious dishes to share. The cost is just £5 per family – no charge if you are providing food. Please come along and enjoy a family evening with the chance to try lots of new foods.

Sports Week - 17th-21st June

All parents are invited to Sports morning on Tuesday 18th June.

 KS1 is 9:30am – 10:30am and KS2 is 11am – 12:30pm. Please pray for dry weather!

Through the week the children will have a chance to try new sports and activities from outside sources. These include a Climbing Wall, Tumble Fun and a Skateboard and Scooter Day!

There will also be competitions between classes.

PE Kit is needed every day!

Dinner Money

Unfortunately due to the unsettlement around Brexit and food inflation costs, as of the 2nd September 2019 there will be an increase in the meal price to £2.30. KS1 meals will remain free.

 

 

Head lice

There have been reported incidents of head lice in the school. Please check your child’s hair regularly and treat as necessary. We have head lice combs available in the office if you would like one.
