Dear Parents/Carers,

Next week’s target is to remember to be polite and well mannered.

Please discuss our values with your children.  We aim for everybody to show respect and care for others and experience high levels of success and happiness.

Thank you for participating in our World Book Day activities this week. It was great to see children enjoying books, and we hope that this has raised the profile of reading in our school.

You may have seen in our uniform policy that we would like children to wear school coloured hoodies for outdoor winter PE lessons (rather than different coloured tracksuits). Staff have risk assessed this and agreed that this is the right decision. We do not play contact games in PE and therefore the safety risk that wearing a hoodie may present in certain sports is minimal.

Thank you to everyone who came and purchased books from the book fayre and to the parents who helped run it for us.  We raised £ 604.76 in commission to spend on books!!! Amazing and thanks again for your support.

Another thank you to anyone who donated and purchased used uniform, this raised £28.70. A big thank you to the parents who organise the stall for us!

There is a tea party at All Saint’s Church in Saxton on Friday 13th March, please see the attached poster for more details.

Please see attached flyer for details of a lady making name labels for uniform.  Thank you.
