School News

We have had a short week in school. Long live the King!


Hannah has been at home this week with covid. We wish her well and hope for her speedy return next week! Hence the short newsletter on the website only!


The Juniors enjoyed their visit to the stone circles at Castlerigg and Long Meg. Thank you for your contributions towards the cost of the coach.


Harvest Appeal

As a follow on from our harvest learning last week we are supporting the King’s Food Bank which provides emergency food support to people in Kendal and its nearby districts in South Lakeland. As a school we would like to collect items to donate over the next week in school. If you are able to donate and haven’t yet done so then please choose an item from the list and send it into school next week. Many thanks for your support.

Examples of items to donate

Instant pasta

Instant noodles

Instant mash

UHT semi-skimmed milk

Large tins of vegetables (eg. carrots, sweetcorn)

Sponge puddings

Missing Forms

Some Medical information and Data Collection forms were sent home for you to complete in the Friday bags but I haven’t received all of them back.  It is important that you complete and return these forms annually to give us up to date information about your child, particularly the medical information forms which we take on all trips.


After School Club – multisport

MS Sports Coaching will be delivering their next Afterschool Club on Tuesday 27th September 3.30pm – 4.30pm. These sessions will be a Multi Sports session with the Sports varying each week. Sports include; Hockey, Cricket, Dodgeball, Archery, Football, Multi Skills. If you haven’t already, please put your child’s name down with Hannah in the office if you would like to attend, these sessions are FREE as they will be paid for by the school PE premium.



One week today!! Thank you to those families who have already returned their forms for tickets and horse sponsorship. If you would like to sponsor any horses or buy tickets for the event, please send in your completed forms and payment TODAY as we need to know numbers for catering and have to pass all the sponsorship info on to be put onto the PowerPoint in advance. We also have just three races left needing sponsorship so if you or anyone you know would like to support the event in this way, please get in touch, we would be extremely grateful. If you have any questions about the event, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks, the PTA committee
