Welcome back!


Dear Parents/Carers ,

Buddy’s big workout for the NSPCC: Sponsored sporting photo trail: Lower school will be completing the trail on Tuesday 28th February and Upper School Friday 3rd March. Can you all please be generous and support your children in this worthy cause. Please ensure any money collected is in the school by Wednesday 8th March 2017.

We are now collecting Sainsbury’s active kids vouchers. Last year we received a lovely range of equipment from Sainsbury, it would be great to be able to do the same this year.

On Wednesday 2nd March I will be available to discuss secondary school placements. You will receive your letter on the 1st March from the local authority with the name of the school your child has been offered, it is important that you accept the offer. It will tell you what you need to do next. Please call if you have any questions about next steps and I will book a time on the 2nd to discuss.

World book day. This will be on 2nd March. The children can dress as a book character, they will need to bring the book in or be able to talk about the book, so ‘book’ not TV characters.

E-safety. We have a link on our website for a fantastic magazine published by Vodaphone. It gives very good advice on how to keep your children safe when they are using the huge range of technology that most of them do. In case you have missed it here is the link;

We have received some information about an opportunity to sing! Please see the attached document to this newsletter.

The children may have mentioned we have changed class names, they also have a ‘team’ name. So U10 are now 6R ‘Ruby’. So the year group and class teachers initial. The team names were chosen by the children, they decided on gems- that’s because they are !
