25th May

Let’s hope this lovely weather continues for the half term holiday!


Year 5 Global Day

All the year 5 pupils have been invited to a Global Day at Over Kellet School on Wednesday 6th June.  They will travel by coach with Leck pupils and need a packed lunch on the day.  A detailed information sheet is included in the Friday bag today.

Kwik Cricket

A group of 8 upper junior pupils are taking part in a Kwik Cricket Competition at Westgate Cricket Club in Lancaster on Thursday 7th June.  We are hoping for a repeat of the success they had at Over Kellet School last week, as they won!  The event starts after lunch, they will eat their packed lunch before they leave school.  What time they get back to school depends on how well they do in the competition.  We are suggesting they may be back by about 5pm, but we will text you when they leave Lancaster.  An extra snack would be a good idea for them to have either between games or at the end.  The pupils taking part will find an information sheet in their Friday bag today.

Arnside Residential Parents’ Information Evening

Mr Stafford-Roberts is holding an information session for all parents of pupils going on the Arnside Residential Trip in July.  The meeting is being held in the school hall on Tuesday 12th June at 6pm, please try to attend.

Whole School Photograph

We have received a copy of the whole school photograph taken last week.  A small proof and order form is included in all bags today, a larger copy of the photograph is displayed in the window near the junior entrance.  It’s a lovely picture, please do take a look!  If you would like to order a copy complete and return the order form to school by Monday 11th June at the latest or follow the instructions to order online.  Thank you.

After School Clubs

All the after school clubs have now finished.  We have a very busy half term coming up, with sports events and trips leading up to the summer holidays.  After school clubs will start again in September.

Bills, Bills

Thank you to everyone who paid their dinner bills online or sent payment into school.   We would appreciate if outstanding amounts could be kept to just a couple of weeks.  Please could any remaining recorder money be sent into school on the Monday after half-term, so that we can organise to pass payment to Suzi Smithson.  Thank you.

We and more importantly, the children, do appreciate any donations you are able to make.  Thank you.


PTA SUMMER FAIR 16th June 11am-1pm
