On Saturday 19th June, 8 children from Year 4 made their First Holy Communion.
We are aware that several of our pupils are using Tik Tok and would like to remind parents that this platform has an age restriction of 13+. It has also come to our attention that across the borough a number of ‘fake’ school accounts are being created. All fake accounts will be reported and would urge you to inform us if you notice anything suspicious.
We DO NOT condone Tik Tok being used by our pupils however we know this does happen. Please remember that any platform being used by your child should have appropriate privacy and parental guidance settings. If you feel you’d benefit from support and guidance around privacy settings on any platform, please contact our school office on firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject, FAO Mrs Jeffrey.
We have a vacancy on our Governing Body for a Parent Governor. If you would like to put your name forward, nomination forms are available from the School Office from today. Completed forms need to returned by 9am on Friday 17th September.

DfE Updated guidance for parents and carers

Visitors in School
No adults will be allowed in school during the Autumn Term. If you need to speak to Mrs Rooney or your child’s teacher please contact the Office on 0191 4898218 or email@example.com
Can we please ask your child to bring their own water bottle into school every day. They will be able to refill it throughout the day and they will bring it home each night to be cleaned ready for the following day.
If your child is showing any of these symptoms it may be best at the moment to keep them at home.
Breakfast and Tea Time Club
Breakfast and Teatime Club will be available from Wednesday 9th September. Please call Mrs Taylor 07906122912 or Mrs Kelly 07981531553 to book your places.
Bagel Club will not be running this term.
A slight change for September…
We are asking that all children come to school already dressed in their PE kit on the day/s that they have PE, because of the current changes to our school timetable (i.e. staggered start times, finish times, lunch times and break times). This will eliminate the need for time to change at school.
Children do not need to bring in a PE bag or a school uniform to change back into. They will wear their PE kit for the whole school day.
Please ensure that your child is wearing their PE kit on the day/s allocated to them. This will be shared with you in September.
The PE kit will consist of:
• a plain white t-shirt (with or without the school logo)
• a regular school jumper or cardigan (worn over the t-shirt)
• maroon shorts
• plain black jogging bottoms (worn over the shorts)
Thank you for your continued support.
Please see start and finish times for each year group, below. Families that have more than one child in school and there is a difference in start times for the children, will drop off all the children at the earliest time and pick up at the latest time.
If you have any questions, please get in touch. We look forward to seeing you all next Wednesday.
As we approach the long summer break, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and encouragement during this very unusual academic year.
