Below is the Parentmail we send out every Thursday so that parents have advanced notice of what is coming up.

Gate Time Change – with effect from Monday 21st September the gate will be open in the morning from 8.30am to 8.50am. Please be prompt when dropping off your children. In the afternoons the gate will be open from 3.10pm.Years 3 and 4 will continue to leave at 3.15pm but years 5 and 6 walkers will leave at 3.20pm and year 5 and 6 collection at 3.25pm. When collecting your child please do move up into the circle area painted on the playground to allow other parents to move up behind you. Thank you all for your co-operation.

Noise Warning – advance warning that there are minor works taking place in the school reception area all day on Tuesday 22nd September. This is to finish the new secure reception. We are anticipating a lot of drilling so please bear this in mind if you are phoning the school! Thank you.

Individual School Photos – these will be held on Thursday 24th September so do ensure your child comes into school with a school jumper or cardigan. Unfortunately we cannot offer family photographs this year; they will be individual child photographs only. Weather permitting the photos will be taken outside. We have reviewed the photographer’s risk assessment and are confident that the process will be Covid secure.

MacMillan Coffee Morning – on Friday 25th September, so that we can continue supporting this charity close to our hearts, instead of coffee and cakes to support this annual event, this year we will have a non-school uniform day. Children can wear their own clothes and we ask for a donation of £1 for this excellent cause.

Year 6 Secondary School Visits – Year 6 parents should have received a letter regarding Transfer to Secondary School. If you would like a hard copy of the letter please let us know. Secondary School Visit forms are available from the reception.

Nasal Flu Vaccine – do remember to register your child for the flu vaccine being administered in school on Monday 19th October. The deadline is midnight on Friday 16th October and late consents cannot be accepted. Hard copies of the information letter are available from reception.

Data Collection Sheets – many thanks to everyone who has returned the Data Collection Sheets, Home Learning Agreements and signed Acceptable Use Policy forms. If you have not yet done so please return the completed forms so we can ensure your contact details are up to date. Water bottles – a reminder that water bottles should only contain water, not squash, juice or other types of drink.

Face Masks – when visiting the school office please remember to wear a face mask, worn correctly covering both your mouth and nose.

A huge thank you – thank you to everyone, governors, staff, parents and children, for supporting us through the re-opening during a difficult time. I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the children walk through our gates again.
