Friday Letter

Friday 9th March 2018





Dear Parents,

 On Tuesday of this week, at around 7.45 am, a vehicle in the Children’s Centre car park narrowly missed hitting a young child walking through the car park with their parent. We want to avoid any accidents on the school site at any time of the day. Consequently we will make sure the pedestrian gates are both open as early as possible to reduce the numbers walking through the Children’s Centre car park.


We would be very grateful for your assistance in keeping the school site safe by considering the following actions:


  • Park outside on the road and walk in through one of the pedestrian gates
  • Do not use the Children’s Centre car park as a short cut to the Children’s Centre main entrance – walk up to the school entrance and turn right along the perimeter of the car park
  • Do not park in the bay reserved for disabled parking
  • During the dark mornings wear something light or reflective
  • Breakfast Club parents park on the school car park to reduce traffic on the Children’s Centre car park (which is much smaller)
  • Drive very slowly on the school site even though you may be pushed for time – be very aware there could be small children around


Thank you in advance for your cooperation in keeping our children, and their parents, safe and sound.


If there are further incidents like this our only option will be to consider closing the car parks to any vehicles during the early morning period.



S.W.Robinson (Headteacher)



Reading Fortnight news

It’s the last day of our Reading Fortnight and we celebrated in style with our ‘book character day. The children’s costumes were brilliant and we would just like to thank parents and carers who have spent so much time on making sure their children look terrific today!

 On Tuesday we had the author Dan Worsley in school talking to KS2 children in assembly, doing writing workshops with Y6 children and holding a book signing event in our library. The children loved listening to him talking about his stories and hopefully he has inspired children to produce some of their own.

We have had another cricket reads session, this time for KS1, which the children loved and we have had lots of opportunities for parents to come into school to read with their children.

This fortnight has really raised the profile of reading in school, so we would like to thank all the parents and carers who supported it by coming into school, reading with the children, making costumes…etc


Easter Bingo

This year’s Easter Bingo will take place on Wednesday 21st March and Mrs Purcell and her team of helpers are asking for donations for the wonderful hampers they make up for the evening. Donations might include items such as tins or packets of food, bottles of drink, unwanted but new / unopened gifts or toiletries… etc. All donations will be most gratefully received.


Easter Egg Raffle

We are now collecting Easter Eggs for our annual Easter Egg Raffle. Any donations of eggs or other goodies for our chocolate tower would, again, be really appreciated.

Raffle tickets will go on sale from Monday 12th March at a cost of 20p each. There will be raffles in each classroom before the Grand Draw in the assembly on the 23rd March.



Non-uniform Day to support the Easter Bingo.

We are inviting children to bring in a donation for the Easter Bingo next Friday (16th March) and as a reward for this they can come to school wearing their own choice of clothes for the day. Any of the type of donations mentioned above would be most welcome.


Next Parents Evening

Our parents evenings for this term will take place on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th March from 3.30-7.30pm.

Attached to this letter is a tear off slip to fill in and return to your child’s class teacher. If you need additional slips, please call in to the school office.

Please tick your preferred day and slot, and the teacher will send you an appointment within, or as near as possible to, your chosen time slot on the day of your choosing. Please help us to allocate you a suitable appointment by returning the slip as soon as possible. Unfortunately parents who do not return the slip might be given an appointment that may not be convenient for them.
