Football Tournament

Our football team played in a tournament yesterday (Thursday 10th November) coming 5th. They played brilliantly and as always were great ambassadors for the school. The team members each had two tickets to attend the England v Denmark under 19 game at the Amex stadium last night. The tournament was organised by ‘Albion in the Community’.

Argus Tokens to Raise Funds

We have registered for a scheme with the Argus newspaper and Barclays bank which will hopefully result in raising some funds for the school. If you read the Argus newspaper please collect the vote tokens and bring them into school. The schools receiving the most vote tokens are awarded cash prizes and children’s financial skills teaching provided by Barclays bank  helping children develop their understanding and confidence in learning to save etc. The money we hopefully raise will go towards playground improvements.

Possible Strike Action

You will be aware that a number of unions  

have balloted their members regarding their views on strike action regarding changes to pensions.The general feeling now following the results of ballots is that strike action is very likely. There is still room for negotiation between the Unions and the Government but I must prepare you for the possibility of the school being closed on the proposed day of action; Wednesday 30th November.
