This week has been Anti-Bullying week, the theme has been ‘Change Starts With Us’ and children have  be thinking about what they can do to bring about change where it is needed, in school and in the world.

It was also ‘Remembrance’ day on Monday and Yr6 and the school council represented the school magnificently at our annual Remembrance Day gathering in Blackley forest. Children and members of the local community were treated to poems from Year 6 and cakes from the school council. A wonderful morning and fantastic contribution from everyone.

Thank you for the donations to Children in Need today. We’ll let you know the total on here as soon as it is finalised!

We have quite a few non-uniform days coming up this term where we ask for donations to support charities or for our school fund. Thank you if you can support these and if you feel you can’t there is no pressure, it is all voluntary.

Fri 22 Nov – non-uniform for a chocolate donation for our Christmas Fair

Fri 29 Nov – wear blue and white for St Andrew’s Day

Fri 6th Dec – non-uniform for cakes donations (EYFS and KS1) and anything in a bottle (KS2) for our                                 Christmas Fair

Wed 11th Dec – 9am – Year 1, 2 and 3 Christmas songs in the hall – families welcome

Fri 13 Dec – Christmas Jumper Day

Finally, you may have noticed our new painted markings on the school drive and in the car park. For the safety of our children, please DO NOT park on any yellow lines or in the yellow box in front of the gate. In the bad weather more and more people are ‘nipping down’ to drop off and pick up, but it is not safe to do so and not permitted. You will be asked to move on if you are seen.
