Good Afternoon Parents & Guardians.
We hope you have had a good week.
We have had a very busy week in school doing lots of Christmassy things! The children have enjoyed all the activities and especially their Christmas Dinner!
We hope that everyone has a lovely Christmas break and a Happy New Year.
We look forward to seeing the children when we return back to school on the 4th January 2022.

ParentPay - Reminder
We have a number of outstanding balances for School Meals.
Please ensure these are settled as soon as possible and at the latest before the start of next term.
School Meals need to be paid for in advance as the funds are to Shire Services and not to school.
If you have outstanding payments for school meals, please ensure payment is made in full otherwise we will ask for children to bring a packed lunch until payment is made.
Please see the table below for PE Days.
Children are to come into school in their PE Kit for the day. As a reminder, the PE kit is a red t-shirt, black leggings/shorts/jogging bottoms.
T-shirts are available via Decostitch.
There will be two days of PE per week for all years.
|Monday||Cedar and Birch|
|Tuesday||Maple and Beech|
|Wednesday||Willow, Maple and Beech|
|Thursday||Elm, Ash and Oak|
|Friday||Elm, Ash, Willow, Oak, Cedar and Birch|
For the children's safety, earrings should not be worn for PE. We respectfully ask that earrings are removed before coming to school. If there is a legitimate reason why the earrings can not be removed, could we ask that you explain to the class teacher in writing. If this is the case, you will need to place tape over the earrings before the children come to school.
