Attendance: A reminder that from today, parents should contact the school by phone on the first day of a child’s absence and follow this up in writing when the child returns to school. Thank you.


Cash for Clobber: Gather up your unused clothes and shoes and help to raise money for our school. Cash for Clobber aims to send clothes that can be reworn to the ‘developing world’ – creating a cleaner, brighter future for everyone.  Currently, 75% of the world’s population depend on second-hand clothing.

The Eco Council are taking part in the scheme and want to collect as much unwanted clothing and shoes as possible to raise money for our school.


So, get collecting now – the rules couldn’t be simpler:

  1. Gather up any unwanted clothes and shoes (pairs of shoes only)
  2. Drop your bag into school before 14th March
  3. Raise money for OUR school!!


The ECO club would like to congratulate Molly Bellingham (Y6), Madison McCartney (Y4) and Poppy Bellingham (Y4) for designing the winning posters for the energy poster competition.  Their posters will be displayed throughout the school to remind everyone to save energy in school.


World Book Day: On Thursday 1st March, the school kitchen is having a special dinner (see back of note). Children may come to school dressed as their favourite character from a story book.


Football: Year 5/6/7 football will start back on Thursday 1st March, it will only run on Thursdays now.  There will be no more football for year 3/4.
