It's been feeling a lot more like Spring this week in school and the children have certainly enjoyed using all of our outside spaces. The children have been really excited about dressing up for World Book Day today and lots have been talking enthusiastically all week about the their costume planning. Thank you to everyone for the fantastic efforts with this - it really is lovely to see the children having such a lovely time in school.

Breakfast Club and After School Club - numbers have been picking up over the past week. Please ensure you book in advance so we can plan safe staffing levels.
Milk for Next Term - please look out next week for the milk order form for next term.
Thanks to those of you who have supported the food bank so far - our school commitment to donate to this worthy cause will continue for the foreseeable future, so please feel free to bring in any donations as and when suits you.
As you may be aware the use of food banks in Sheffield has increased since the start of the pandemic, as more and more families find themselves struggling financially. As a school we would like to support the Sheffield S6 food bank (which serves a wider area than S6). We will therefore be putting a box outside school which will be emptied weekly. If you would like to support us with this, please bring some of the following items and put them in the Food Bank box which will be taken to the Food Bank each week.

Morning Drop Off
This week has been much calmer and felt much safer outside school. Thank you! The majority of parents have tried really hard to come at the right time for their child's class and most have respected our request that parents should not wait by the railings outside school.
Update from Sheffield City Council
Schools have been asked to raise the issue that there have been a number of concerns to the Public Health Team this week regarding families no longer adhering to the national COVID-19 measures, including mixing indoors. This means that community transmission of the virus starts to increase which results in cases coming into school.
Please keep following the Lockdown rules for everyone's safety.
Easter Holiday Clubs
The Academy are pleased to announce that we will be able to run our hugely popular Easter Holiday Tennis Camps this year. With Tennis able to resume outside from the 29th of March it enables us to be able to run our camps over the 2 week Easter break
The camps are directed to beginner and intermediate players from 4yrs upwards. Players are groups according to age bands. The sessions are based around tennis specific coaching, fun games to develop skill and an introduction to fun competition. All our staff are fully qualified, licensed and advanced DBS checked.

Full Day - 9am-2pm (staggered 30 minute lunch break)

All camps will take place outside so please consider this when sending your child, we would recommend that your child brings a drink and players staying for the full day will need to bring a packed lunch. There are toilet facilities onsite.
