Newsletter ~ July Week One

Dear Families,


Year 1 trip

On Tuesday Year 1 had a great time at The Brampton museum.  They are learning about toys and learnt a great deal at the museum.  Super behaviour and lots of answering questions by so many of the children.


Year 5 & 6 science day

On Tuesday, Years 5 and 6 spent the day at Keele University taking part in various science workshops.  The children had so much fun bug hunting, making speakers, learning about chromatography and learning about DNA.  



Uniform and high expectations

It’s becoming more noticeable that some children aren’t wearing the correct school uniform to school or for PE.  Please can you make sure that children do not wear platform trainers for PE and that PE tops are not crop tops.

Children cannot wear makeup in school.  If your child comes into school with makeup on they will be asked to wash it off straight away.

And the last reminder - nail varnish is not allowed in school.

We value our high standards at Friarswood and appreciate your support with this.


Transition / Move up morning

This has gone very well.  The children were so excited about being in their new classroom and meeting their new teacher.  As mentioned previously, those children who will be in a different part of the school (Reception and Year 2) will be shown where they come into school several times over the next couple of weeks.


Small & Tall fee increase

Unfortunately, due to the rise in costs with fuel and food as well as living wage increases, we have had to make the decision to raise the charges for Small & Tall.  We have tried our best to keep the increase as minimal as possible.   The fees are as follows:

Before school - £5.25 (no change)

After school - £9.25 

There will be a 10% discount for children who attend all of the before / after school sessions.

The fees will be reviewed annually.


Internet Safety

For Parents - Snapchat Updated Safety Features

At the end of June Snapchat updated the app with further safety features, including updates to account blocking functionality and enhanced friending safeguards, e.g.:

  • Block new friend requests sent from bad actors who were already blocked by the user, but sent from a different account from the same device.

  • More frequent reminders about which friends they share their location with on Snap Maps.

  • Further pop-up warnings if users add a friend who doesn't share mutual friends or is not a part of their contacts.

Further details can be found HERE.


Wishing you a fun evening later at the fair and a lovely weekend.

Take care and stay safe

Mrs Wilmer
