A warm welcome to all our readers at the start of the new school year. We look forward once again to working in close partnership with you for the benefit of all the children in our care. We offer a special welcome to the children, and their families, who have joined our school community this September.

Thank you for the orders received from the Traidcraft Christmas catalogues, £119.85 was raised for School Association funds.
A big 'thank you' to Mrs Spencer for all her hard work.

Come along to browse for some wonderful Christmas presents and help school obtain new books for the library and classrooms through commission earned on each book sold.

The recently held non-uniform day raised £138 for the North West Children's Support Group, who raise money to help provide holidays for local disabled children - a big 'Thank you' was received from NWCSG's committee. The non-uniform day scheduled for 10th November has been postponed until Friday 18th November and will raise funds for Children in Need.

Toys for sale can be brought into school on Friday 18th November (preferably at the end of the school day) or on Saturday morning from 8:301m onwards. Tell your friends.

Healthy Schools Initiative/Bun Days

Commencing this term we are taking part in the Healthy Schools initiative. The children in Key Stage 1 will be receiving a variety of fruit to eat each week. In order to support this initiative we are asking that sweets should not be brought into school for the children. Because we are participating in this initiative it has been decided that the planned Bun Days for this academic year will not now take place.

Nut Allergy

We would like to bring to your attention that we have a young child in school with a nut allergy. In order to minimise the risk to this child could you please refrain from sending your child into school with nuts, or products containing nuts. Thank you.

Name Tapes

Can we please remind all parents that it is very important that all the children's school clothes, especially sweatshirts, jumpers and cardigans, are clearly marked with their names. This is very important for all children in our school and would greatly help cut down on the amount of lost property that accumulates.

Tesco Vouchers

Following last year's success - when we were able to purchase computer software - we are once again collecting Tesco vouchers in school. This year Tesco are promoting sport in schools, and are offering a wide range of sporting equipment in exchange for vouchers. Vouchers can be sent into school at any time.
