Value of the month ‘Caring’


Welcome – to Miss Julie Critcher who started with us this week as a Teaching Assistant in Oak Class.


Key Stage 1 Nativity play – tickets for the performances have been given out to the classes today and should be in your child’s book bag. Please remember to bring your tickets to the performances as we are unable to admit anybody without one.
The Dress Rehearsal on Monday 8th December will start at 2pm and entry for parents will be 1.50pm.

On Tuesday evening please take your children to the Year 1 Classroom (Hornbeam) at 5pm to get ready into their costumes etc. The Chalets will be open for any parents unable to return home in the time between drop off and front doors opening at 5.50pm. The performance is due to start at 6pm. After the performance the children will be taken back to their classes to change and hang up their costumes. The staff will bring the children back to the hall to be reunited with waiting parents. It would be greatly appreciated if parents could help put the chairs away while they are waiting. Thank you.
Finally, the Thursday afternoon performance is at 2pm and parents are welcome into school via the front door at 1.50pm.

The children may be collected from their classrooms in the usual manner on Monday and Thursday afternoons. The gate will be unlocked after the performance for parents to access the playground to wait for children to change and be ready for collection from their classrooms.

Please do not arrive too early for the performances. We are unable to allow anyone into the school building until 10 minutes before the performances start. Tickets are not numbered but there will be a seats for each ticket.

NSPCC fundraising – the total amount raised for the NSPCC so far is over £1500.00!!! What a fantastic amount! This figure is slowly increasing as more sponsor forms and money are returned. The NSPCC representative will return on Monday for a final assembly and to collect any further monies.
