(Paper copies are available in the Foyer).

Please return all completed applications and payments to the school office by the end of the day on Monday 23rd November. (Mrs Rasmussen will be taking the forms as she leaves school at 3.15pm.)


Aspens ordering – recently a number of children have been quite upset about the meals that have been ordered. Occasionally, the canteen has been able to provide an alternative (at their own cost) but this is not always possible. Please can you check with your child whether they have liked the meals ordered. The dinner staff ask the children to tell parents so that an alternative meal can be ordered next time, however the same problem is recurring.


Children in Need – to date we have raised £157.80. Thank you for all the donations.


Printer cartridges – if anyone has any original toner or ink cartridges to be recycled please bring them in a sealed plastic bag to the school office. We can send them off and earn some extra funds for school.


FOWPS Newsletter w/e Friday 13th November 2015   

It’s just 14 days until our annual Christmas Market. This year, we will are asking for your help with donations of bottles and jolly jars to use on our two tombolas. We have started collecting your donations this week.


There will be collection bags under the sheltered area of the chalets every day of the week. (On your right as you enter the playground). These will be clearly labelled with the class names. Please make sure you put your donations into the correct bag!


A tally will be kept over the course of each collection week to see which class has given the school the most support through their donations. The class with the most items donated will be allowed a special treat for all their hard work.


JOLLY JARS: From 16th-20 November is Jolly Jar week. Please bring in clean jars, filled with sweets (preferably wrapped) or small toys. As with the bottles, any edible items must be within date to at least January 2016. You are welcome to decorate your jars for a bit of festive fun.



Last year’s winners were Hornbeam (y1) and Rowan (y4). Who will be this year’s winners? Could it be your class???
