Just to let you all know that school will be open tomorrow as normal. Roads around school are now clear, with the exception of Elmslea Avenue, so please take extra care. All of the pathways around school have been gritted.
Please make sure that your child comes to school with a coat, hat and gloves as well as a change of shoes (in case it is safe for them to play outside at break).
Tomorrow’s Key Stage 1 production will still go ahead but it will be at the revised time of 2:15 pm. This is to allow extra time for staff and pupils to get into school safely in the morning and for the team to get everything set up in preparation. We apologise for the change of time, but we hope that this notification will give parents time to make any necessary arrangements.
Mrs Cresswell sent a text out to all parents in Key Stage 1 today, outlining their ticket allocations. Doors open at 2:00 pm and Mrs Cresswell will be on hand to tick off names as they arrive.
Wednesday night’s performance time remains unchanged.
Due to adverse weather and treacherous driving conditions for parents and staff who live outside of the village, school will be closed tomorrow.
We apologies for any inconvenience caused, this was not a decision that was taken lightly. We hope that by making this decision early, all parents and carers have time to make alternative childcare arrangements.
We will advise tomorrow as to whether school is back open on Tuesday or not.
Please refer to the correspondence linked below in the event of bad weather, such as snow. A copy of this correspondence has also been sent home with your child today.
Adverse Weather Conditions
Last Friday, 1st December, we held our Christmas Fayre and there was such a buzz around the school as people mingled, enjoying the festivities and the stalls.
First of all we have to say a HUGE thank you to the FPTA, our staff and all the volunteers who not only gave up their time to help on the evening but helped with the preparations during the day and the weeks leading up to the event. These fundraising activities are only successful when we all pull together and we certainly did that. A special mention should go to Mrs Mack for being chief co-ordinator, she is incredibly organised and, as a result, the evening ran like clockwork – Thank you.
On the evening, we made an amazing £997 but thanks to two of our pupils, they have rounded this figure up to £1,000, which is absolutely fantastic.
We hope you all enjoyed the evening and found it lots of fun, even if your purse/wallets were slightly lighter when you went home! If you have any suggestions or ideas for future events or fundraising activities, please let us know – we’re always looking for new ideas.
Mr Smith will be holding our next Cuppa & Cake session this Friday, 1st December 2017, between 9:00 and 10:00 am.
Agenda items for discussion will be:
- Feedback from the Parent Questionnaire
- School Improvement Work
We hope you can make the Cuppa & Cake session as we value your feedback and ideas. Your feedback helps us to continually improve school life for you and your children.
Our Christmas Fayre is upon us and there are lots of exciting treats in store with a whole range of activities that the children can get involved in. We have Splat the Pudding, Reindeer Hoopla, Where’s Santa?, Snowman game, kids treasure hunt and Santa Keys amongst other games.
More importantly, we are hoping to have a special visit from Father Christmas and you’ll be able to see him at his Christmas Grotto.
If you fancy something a little more crafty to do, we have a craft table with various activities and biscuit decorating too!
There will be hot food available to purchase from our school kitchen or mulled wine and mince pies if you want to feel all warm and festive.
Of course, we have the usual raffle stall, with prizes galore to try and win, as well as our children and adult tombola stalls.
We hope you can make it on Friday to help make this Christmas Fayre a fundraising success – doors open at 6pm and continues through to 8pm.
This Friday, 1st December, is our annual school Christmas Fayre and we are looking for cake donations for the cake stall. These can be home made or shop bought – all are welcome in order to help make our Christmas fundraiser a success.
Please bring any baked goods to the school reception on Friday morning where possible.
This Friday’s Cuppa and Cake session in school has been rescheduled to next Friday, 1st December 2017, at 9am.
This is a great opportunity for parents to feedback their views into school and to discuss potential future events, activities and improvements across the school.
We look forward to seeing you there.
The Christmas Carol.
This week the children have been learning about The Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
On Monday, all the children and staff dressed up and joined in with a Victorian themed day.
Throughout the week the children have made and tasted gruel………….
played Victorian games…….
have completed the ‘man’s jobs’…………
have eaten a Rich Man’s lunch……….
and made Victorian toys!
It has been a fantastic week and enjoyed by all!
Another successful fundraising event was held at school last night. Eyes down for a full house….and it was a full house. It was great to see so many families in attendance, eager to win all the prizes.
We are pleased to say that we raised a fabulous £290.65.
Thank you to all those who donated prizes and helped on the evening.
