Dear Parents/Carers,

Several Spooks and Sparkles costumes were bought/exchanged at the end of last week, and we look forward to seeing them at the discos next week.

As the weather gets colder please remember to wrap children up warm so that they can enjoy going outside for fresh air, fun and exercise during the school day.

Parents’ Consultations

If you haven’t booked your parent consultation yet, please do so via the link  We are looking forward to welcoming parents/carers into school next week for their consultations with class teachers.  Please note that the booking window closes Sunday evening to allow staff time to prepare for the meetings on Monday.


PTA Spooks and Sparkles Discos Thursday 26th October: 5-5.45pm and 6-7pm  FLYER ATTACHED

Entry to BOTH discos is via the main School Entrance (by the Winnie the Pooh Garden).  Please purchase tickets via ParentPay.  Children will be ticked off from our lists on entry.  Cost of entry: £2.50 each.


Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2:  5pm – 5.45pm

An adult needs to stay with their child and enjoy the dancing.  Exit will be via the KS2 Door.


Years 3, 4, 5 and 6:  6pm – 7pm

Children can be dropped off, but please make sure they go into the school building.  No mobile phones please.  Pick up will be from the KS2 Door at 7pm.  Children will not be allowed to walk home without a responsible adult picking them up.

Fancy dress is encouraged, not essential. But dancing like nobody’s watching is obviously compulsory!


Colorfoto Photos Day: Wednesday 8th November

Colorfoto will be coming into school to take individual pupil photos. 


Lost Property

Please see the lost property page of the web site if your child has mislaid something:  It would help us greatly if children’s property was labelled with their name, especially school uniform, so that we can reunite owners with their clothing or other items.  Many thanks.


Year Group Christmas Sharing sessions

Following the success of these last Christmas, the children will be sharing a Christmas-themed presentation with parents/carers.  Below is the timetable for these events.  Each session will start at 9.30am and will take place in the Big Hall.  Thank you.
