Newsletter - February Week One

Dear Parents and Carers


A much calmer week (weather-wise) in school this week - the storm damage has been cleared and we are back to using all of our wonderful grounds again. Thank you to Mr Gidman and Mrs Bithell’s husband for working hard to get everything safe again.


Four of our Year 6 children went to the Co-op head office in Manchester on Tuesday to make a presentation in the finals of a competition to design an app to help the environment. Although they didn’t win the final they did an amazing job pitching their product which earned them a special mention from the Trust’s Director of Primary Curriculum on X. If any parents follow the school on X you may have seen this.

Thank you for your hard work Albert, Ayva-Lilly, Isla and Jack you did a great job!


Valentine Disco
Next Wednesday is our Valentine disco. If you would prefer to stay in from the wet and cold but your disco days are behind you, the PTA will be setting up a parents cafe in The Hub. A child free area to sit and relax with a drink while the children enjoy their dancing! The EYs and KS1 disco starts at 5:30 and the KS2 disco starts at 6:30 

Card or cash payment for the entrance fee and parent cafe, cash for the children’s refreshment stand.


Time to Talk Day
On Wednesday we held a drop in before the end of school for parents to grab a hot drink, a biscuit and have a chat. We hope that you enjoyed the opportunity to catch up in the warmth and remember your chat might have been just the thing somebody needed to help them through that day, it’s always good to talk. Thank you to Mrs Hughes, Mr Linley-Simon and Mrs Bebbington for helping to run the session. An extra thank you to Mrs Hughes for organising something for the staff today too - in a busy school it’s often surprisingly lonely and we don’t always make the time to talk to each other.


Places for September
Our places for new children in September are filling up and although the applications have been submitted it’s not too late for prospective families to come and have a look around. If you know anyone who has a child due to start nursery or reception in September please let them know that they are always welcome to come and see our school. They just need to contact Mrs Dean to make an appointment and either myself, Mrs Wilmer or Mrs Williams will be happy to meet them.


Dates for your diary:

 If you haven’t done so already please could you fill in the PTA Feedback questionnaire. This gives the PTA an overall idea of what events you would like to see and events that are going well.


Our attendance this week has been 95.7%. We are still doing well but coughs and upset tummies have taken their toll this week. Remember that we are happy to give medicine during the day for coughs, colds and sore throats. Just contact Mrs Dean beforehand who will get the appropriate permissions from you.
