Get Set Cook

Ms Bryant and Mr Smart starred alongside Skye, Cain, Axelle and Sylvie in their very own Get Set Cook performance to promote healthy eating. The show was put on for us by Chartwells who provide our school lunches. The teams made stir-fry and accompaniments. The audience voted the red team (Mr Smart’s team) as the winners. Well done Mr Smart, Sylvie and Axelle.

Family Information Event

The City Centre Cluster of schools held a very successful family information event in our school hall on Wednesday. We had a full range of services and agencies which offer support for families covering a variety of issues

Nit Alert!

Those pesky head lice are nibbling again, especially in Year 1. Please could everyone check their child’s (and the rest of the family’s) hair on a regular basis and treat if any beasts are uncovered. If you are having a particular problem with head lice, please ask to speak to the school nurse – Lisa Bashford. Lisa can give you lots of helpful advice.

Two Reminders

In the mornings, if you arrive before 8.45, please use the side entrance gate in Middle Street to enter the school. The Boyces Street gate is open from 8.45 until 9.00. Unfortunately there is no one available to open the main gate in Boyces street before 8.45, so please don’t waste your time buzzing to come in. Thank you.

Please can parents and carers ensure their children do not play ball games in the playground at the beginning or end of the day. It is very dangerous and can make the playground feel unsafe for adults and children if balls are flying around. Yesterday a baby was almost hit by a ball which would have been very distressing for the child and parent. If children take footballs from the hall without school permission, they will be in trouble. So do remind them if you see this happening. Thank you.

Easter Holidays: School finishes Friday 8th April and opens again on Tuesday 26th April.
