We are collecting Morrisons Good to Grow points
Dress as you Please Day - 21st October - NEXT Thursday!
Children are invited to come to school in non-uniform - they may wear a dressing up outfit or just their favourite comfy clothes. Please ensure that whatever they wear is warm enough to play outside, that they can go to the toilet independently and have sensible shoes so that they can safely run around at playtime.
Please bring a cash donation or donate online using our donations page:
Rudolph Christmas Cards! Last weekend to complete The Rudolph Christmas cards
Deadline is Thursday 21st October!
We realise it’s early to be thinking about Christmas, but if you’re looking for a way to support the school and make a start on your Christmas shopping, this is the perfect opportunity!
Your child will have brought home a template on which they can design a special picture ready for Christmas. This can then be printed on to Christmas cards, mugs and a whole range of other products. Please see the parent letter for more information and examples.
If you are interested, here’s what you need to do:
Purchases should arrive in plenty of time for Christmas. They will be distributed at school for children to take home. Please click here for the design form.
Read more info on the parent letter.

Notes From the Office
Breakfast Club: Please ensure you bring your child to the hall door - do not drop them off at the gate. School are only responsible for the safety of your child once they have been registered in Breakfast Club.
After School Club: On Thursday 21st October After School Club will have limited places for those requiring essential childcare and will finish at 4:30pm. If your child usually attends on a Thursday we would be very grateful if you could make alternative arrangements as the school building is required for our Open Evening.
School Photos: Your child will have brought home a proof of the photo taken this week. The deadline for returning this to school is Wednesday 3rd November.
Flu Immunisations: Deadline 28th October An email has been sent out to all parents with details. You must give consent via the on-line link if you wish your child to have the immunisation in school. FLU IMMUNISATIONS CONSENT
Reception Height and Weight: a letter was sent home last week - please return to give consent for this check to happen in school.
Next week is WEEK 2 of the lunch menu - please remember it is Veggie Monday! (no ham grab bag!)
