10th November

Anti-Bullying Week

Next week 13th to 17th November is anti-bullying week.  The theme this year promotes difference and equality in schools with the tag-line ‘All Different, All Equal’.  We will be doing some work on this in school.  Some useful information for parents is available online at anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk.

Flu Vaccines and Year 6 Height and Weight

The NHS team will be visiting school on Tuesday 14th November in the morning to vaccinate the children in years1, 2, 3, 4 and reception against flu; only the children whose parents returned the form will receive the vaccine.

While the nurses are in school they will also carry out the height and weight checks on year 6 children, whose parents have not completed the opt-out form.

Christmas Play

The children have started rehearsing for the Christmas Play, you may have already received a slip with lines to learn and costume details, if not it will come home next week.

Infant Visit to St Margaret’s Church

Children will visit St Margaret’s Church in Hornby on Thursday 16th November in the afternoon as part of History learning.

PTA Meeting

School Meals

We have purchased a system that will allow parents to pay for school meals online if they wish.  Details will be sent home in the next couple of weeks, at this point we will continue to offer payment by cheque or cash as well, if this suits you better.
