School Council Visit the Level

Children from the school council joined Mrs Jones and members of the council’s play service to discuss the proposed development of the level. They met on Thursday morning to view the level in its current state and to discuss plans for the future. There will be an opportunity for parents and carers to get involved with the consultation very soon.

Changes to Lunches

There has been a change to the lunchtime meals on offer this term. Menus will be sent home but the main change is that the optional choice is now depending on the day, includes jacket potato and a filling, baguettes or a ploughman’s. The optional choice replaces sandwiches. If the optional choice is meat there will be an option for a veggie filling.

Sign the Late Register

We’ve had a few issues lately with children arriving late missing the register and also not ordering a meal. Obviously its better to avoid being late, but  if your child does arrive late for school please could you ensure they sign the late register at the office.

Contact Information Please

We are always endeavouring to keep records up to date with your contact details. Please return the contact form sent to you recently if you haven’t already done so. Please let us know if you change your phone number especially if its a mobile phone as we use the texting service regularly to keep you up to date with events etc in school.

No Pokemon or Collectable Cards Please

Please could children not bring collectable cards (for example Pokemon cards) into school. For some strange reason these cards are the playthings that cause the most upset and distress.Occasionally they may be allowed in school during Golden Time, as this is a time their use can be closely monitored.

Bikability Cycle Training

There is to be cycle training available to children during the half term break. The training will take place at Preston Park from 10.00 till 12.00 beginning on Monday 21st February until Friday 25th February. The sessions are aimed at children age 9 -13 years. Places are limited. For more details and to book contact Emily Tester on 01273 293847.

Support for Parents Course

There is a positive parenting group running at Carlton Hill Primary school this term beginning on 25th January 9.30 – 11.30. This is a free 8 week course. If you are interested please contact Safety Net on 01273 620377 or Tamsin on 01273 291735

Campaign Launch

Parent Governor, Benita Matofska is launching a campaign to encourage people to SHARE. To help with her research, she is holding a focus group at her home for parents/carers of Middle Street children. If you can SHARE an hour of your time, please contact Benita on 07793276205. In exchange there will be free tea, coffee and biscuits.


Please could you avoid bringing your pooches to school please? Obviously they are not allowed on the school grounds but also if you absolutely have to bring them with you please tie them up well away from school gates. Some children and adults are anxious around dogs and would appreciate your support with this issue.
