😷 Face Masks Must Be Worn At ALL Times -
As You Approach School
& Within The School Grounds!  


Friday 12th March 2021


Dear families,

Just a quick reminder that this weekend is Census Day.  The census is a survey about all the households in England and Wales. The next census takes place on Sunday 21 March 2021. Everyone must complete the census - it's a legal requirement - and it will help all of us too! It helps decide how services are funded in your area for the next 10 years!

So make sure you don't forget to complete yours...

Find out more and complete the survey here.... 

School Life & Community News

Face Masks
It is essential to wear a face mask whilst on the school premises.
It is not acceptable for some adults who are not wearing face masks at all.

We can all forget sometimes but we must keep everyone safe.

The Local Authority has made it clear that all schools and their school community must adhere to this request.

This simple step can make a big difference, and shows that you care about the safety of others!

Take Care, Take Action, & Stay Safe: 
So we can all get back to normal soon!

Curriculum News
Early Years Lent Activities & PE day!

We are having a silly sock on Wednesday, in Nursery and Reception classes for Lent.  The children bring in a donation for the food bank please.

A reminder that PE is on Friday for Reception children from now on!

Self-Isolation & Shielding
If your family need to self-isolate, work will be available.

Any families who are self-isolating can access schoolwork via Google Classroom or request paper copies.
Google Classroom continues to be used for homework too!
Pupil Reviews 

Staff will call or Google Meet parents next week. (See the table below).

If you miss your call do not worry. They will contact you during the week.


Healthy School = Healthy Child = Healthy Mind!

Parents, please remember that we are a healthy school! 

We are increasingly getting snacks that are not appropriate -  e.g sandwiches at break time, breakfast bars loaded with sugar, chocolates and today, we have 2 large share bags of Haribo! 

Children, as a healthy school, we do not want to see sweets and chocolate in school!
Please leave them at home and eat them as a treat when your teeth can be brushed straight after eating!

Fruit should be used for snacks!  Or click on the Blueberries above for more healthy ideas.

Pope Francis Tweets
Pope Francis sends us inspiration via his tweets.

Our favourite one this week is....
  #To experience #Lent in hope means receiving the hope of Christ, who gave his life on the cross and was raised by God on the third day, and always being prepared to make a defence to anyone who calls us to account for our hope (1 Pt 3,15).
5 Ways to Well-Being

The focus for next week is:

Today at lunchtime I was asked by a pupil, “How has your day been so far?”
It was delightful to be asked the question!

We can connect in different ways:
  • say “hello” in another language;
  • wave with a cheery smile;
  • write a letter;
  • write a poem for someone;
  • draw a picture and put it in the post for someone so that they get a surprise off the postman/lady.
I am sure that you can think of even better ways than me children, so show us in school how you will Connect!

If anyone in a household is sick or showing signs of illness;
