Dear Parents/Carers,


Great work from Mrs Capstick's Y3s this morning. Fun and informative with great ideas about how to stay safe online. Speaking of which, a number of parents got lots from our online safety workshop this week – should you require further information or guidance, please check out our online safety hub.

There are two attachments this week relating to Christmas, including key dates and Christmas Jumper arrangements.  Please take a look. I'll ask the office to send out separately too. Lots of exciting and enriching activities to look forward to over the coming weeks, with our wonderful friends at FOMBA adding an extra bit of sparkle to proceedings.


Core Value Award

Our core values are displayed throughout school and we strive (both pupils and staff) to live them out each day in everything we do. The focus for this term is kindness and respect with different pupils from each key stage being awarded a weekly certificate and trophy. See our FB page and website for all the details and for this week's winners!

Thankyou for looking after our office staff when you contact them or pop into school; they have vast responsibility in the smooth running of school and in keeping me organised -  please treat them with kindness and respect.


Christmas Support

As we approach Christmas, again this year, we are supporting our families ensuring that they can experience the joy and warmth of the special season. We are able to refer our families to agencies where you can have the opportunity to go along and choose your own Christmas food and gifts. If you are struggling financially and would otherwise be unable to provide gifts for your family and enjoy a Christmas dinner, festive treats and a Christmas Eve Box – please telephone Mrs Bish, Pastoral Manager – 01942 24129 who will be happy to complete a referral.  Please note the closing date is Friday 1st December 2023.  This is a confidential service.


Road Safety Week

It's road safety week next week and we will be reminding children how to take care on our streets. I wrote to you last week about taking extra care at the busy junction on Warrington Road. Please see links below to look at with your children should you wish to.
