Dear Parents/Carers,


Could I remind parents and carers that we do not allow children or adults to ride bikes or scooters in the playgrounds when they drop off or collect their children. There are lots of people around, especially at the end of the day including young children, and I have had a few complaints about thoughtless behaviour involving scooters as well as footballs being kicked in the playgrounds which have hit bystanders. I will remind the children about the footballs but ask that you respect our rules on scooters and bikes.


The exhibits for the upcoming Year 3 and 4 Road Trip USA exhibition have started to arrive in school and are looking very exciting and creative! We have put some in our year three corridor, so that people in school are able to have a look at them and there are more in the classrooms. I am always impressed by the creativity of our parents/carers and our pupils – well done everyone – you will see them later in the term at the exhibition. Look out for a reminder of the dates.


This morning our wonderful catering staff (Mrs Catterall, Mrs Read, Mrs Capener and Mrs Burrows) as well as Mrs Holt, Mrs Elwell and Mr Stynes were in school by 7am to cook breakfast for our year 4 pupils and their families. Their hard work is much appreciated. It was great to see so many pupils and their families and friends attending and enjoying their breakfast! Thank you to staff who supported this and were also in work earlier than they needed to be.


This is a reminder that school dinners should be paid in advance. Again, the school dinner account is nearly £300 short. Please communicate with us if you are having problems paying – make an appointment to speak to me – and we can try to work something out. Sometimes family circumstances change which affect budgets. If you don’t let us know, then we will just keep sending reminder texts.


Today was the turn of Mr Lambert’s class to perform their class assembly. On this occasion though, we need to thank Mr Millar who wrote and directed it – lots of hard work and a great success. Again, it was good to see an assembly with a resilience theme – integrity – which, as the children know, is the ability to do the right thing even when no one is watching.

Best wishes, Margaret Greig
