Welcome back to school! I hope you all had a wonderful summer holiday filled with lots of fun and plenty of time to relax.
I would like to welcome to all the new children and families who have joined our school community. We are thrilled to have you here and look forward to getting to know each and every one of you. Our school is a place where everyone is valued and respected, and we are confident that you will feel right at home.
ParentMail will continue to be our primary communication tool, so please make sure to check your inbox regularly. It is through ParentMail that you will receive important announcements, reminders, and updates about upcoming events. If you are having any difficulties with ParentMail, please contact Mrs Perry in the school office.
Our school website will be updated with new information in the next few weeks. This will include curriculum updates, details about school policies and resources to support your child’s learning.
Once again, welcome back to school – I am confident that this will be another fantastic year!
You’ve no doubt heard in the news about the schools who have concerns regarding Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC). We carried out an assessment in the summer term and the Diocesan Education team have visited this week as an additional check. There was no evidence of RAAC found.
As we start a new year, there are sometimes reminders needed about certain aspects of school uniform. Can you please be aware of the following:
One earring in each ear, studs only. Children need to be able to take these out themselves for P.E. or don’t come in them on P.E. days. Watches can be worn, but no smartwatches that can access the internet or have cameras built in. No other jewellery is allowed.
Children can still wear summer uniform until October half term. If you are unsure what this entails, please see the uniform policy on the school website.
It is physically impossible for pigs to look up into the sky.
Rucksacks & School Book Bags
Please make sure that you are sending children to school with their book bag and not big rucksacks. We don’t have room in school to store rucksacks and/or big bags and the reason we went to book bags, kindly provided by the PTA, is that they fit into school trays. Thank you for your understanding.
The Mary Stevens Hospice
The ice cream van at the summer fayre raised £141.90 for The Mary Stevens Hospice. That’s great!

And be gracious to you;
The bike shelter, which was very generously donated by Mr Scott and their family-owned business Quality Metal Products Ltd, is open for any child to use who wants to come on their bike to school. You will need to bring your own bike padlock and take responsibility for securing the bike or scooter each day. It will be on a first-come, first-served basis each day.
