We have had a mixture of weather this week, the rain has stopped play, on a few occasions, but the children have still had a good week.
We are thinking of those who are unwell at the moment, and wishing them all a speedy and full recovery. Many thanks to those of you who have collected your children quickly, when we have asked, and for having the tests when required.
Goodbye & Good Luck!!
2 of our After School Team are leaving us this week. We wish both Lynn & Jo the very best of luck in their new adventures, we will miss them.
Cross Country Results
Some of our year 5 and 6 children took part in a cross-country event yesterday. The team came 5th overall. And, 2 children, Amelie & Sam, have qualified for the championships, on the 14th October! Well done to all participants.
School Meals : Delivery problems & changes
We would like to make you aware of the POSSIBILITY of our school dinner menus changing at short notice. Our Head of Kitchen, Angie, will do her best to keep to the menu we send out. With the lack of drivers causing problems across many areas of the UK, a change might be needed at some point. We will notify you as soon as we can, if this situation arises. Thank you
Our Harvest Festival in the church, has been put on hold for now, we need to seek some further guidance. If the service does go ahead, we will let you know. Thank you
Year 4 Cake Sale

PTA Christmas Fair
Our school PTA are having a meeting on Thursday 7th October at 6pm, here in school, to discuss what to do for the Fair this year. Sadly, they will not be able to do anything, without YOUR help. Please do join them on the 7th, to give your support and ideas. The school would be truly lost without the amazing fundraising that the PTA does. See you there!
Non Uniform Day Thursday 21st October
Our PTA non uniform day will be the last day of this half-term, Thursday 21st October. The children are encouraged to wear non uniform for the day, and are asked to donate via the just giving PTA page (details of this to follow).
Please make sure your child's outfit is suitable for a day in school. Thank you
