Uniform (Not Mrs Walker’s Nursery)

Some children are being sent to school in non-uniform each day. Please make sure that when you buy new shoes and school clothes that these are in line with our uniform expectations.

Children should look and feel smart when they are learning – joggers and sports leggings don’t achieve this. Shoes should be plain black (black trainers are fine but not ones with adidas stripes, flashing lights or luminous bits).

Covid rules

You will have seen in the news that Covid rules have changed. Children who test positive for covid should stay at home for five days. If your child has any of the main symptoms (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, a loss or change to their sense of smell or taste) you do still need to do a test. School will still send your child home for a test if these symptoms appear.

Conversations about war in Ukraine

Some of our older children have noticed the news and have started chats with staff about this. If your child is trying to discuss this at home, the BBC Children’s Newsround website have a really good “Advice if you're upset by the news” to help that chat to go well:

World Book Day – Thursday 3rd March

On Thursday, the children will be celebrating World Book Day. They will be spending the whole day exploring one picture book through drama, art, writing and lots of other fun activities. They are welcome to wear their own clothes or dress up as their favourite book character. Each child will receive their own World Book Token which they can use at participating book shops and supermarkets. To find out your nearest participating bookshop please follow this link.

Following on from this on Friday, we are excited about welcoming local author Gareth Baker who will be running workshops throughout the day.

School Meal Prices from April 2022

School Meals for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 will increase from £2.05 to £2.15 after the Easter Break.
The increasing cost of food affects school in the same way as it does the weekly shop. We have worked hard to keep the prices steady for many years but now need this small increase to be able to continue to provide the tasty, well-balanced meals that children need.
If your job status has changed and you think you might be entitled to claim free school meals, you can get a form from the school office who will be happy to check this for you.
