Parent Updates

Parent update Friday 27th November 2020


Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope you are all safe and well.  Life in school is calm even though this is a busy time of year and it is great to see the children making progress. 

As well as celebrating the non-religious side of Christmas, we also prepare ourselves to celebrate the birth of Jesus.  This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent, it is a good time to reflect and see if we are doing all the things that will keep us ready to receive Jesus when he comes again –we hope you will reinforce this message with your children at home.

Thank you very much for the donations that have come into school this week.  We have now received 502 donations towards our target of 1000.  The boxes will be outside again next week.  Thank you also for the Christmas decorations which have been donated to school; after the children have gone home tonight we have enjoyed putting them up and making the school look very festive.


On Friday 4th December  we will be having a sponsored ‘Santa/ Reindeer/ Christmassy’ dash around the playground.  Your child can come to school dressed up in something Christmas related and their trainers. Each class will have a session running or walking around the playground seeing how many laps they can do in half an hour.   A sponsorship form can be downloaded below.  Please sponsor your child and ask friends and family to sponsor them too.  Any money raised can be sent into school either on the Friday or the following week in a sealed envelope. The envelopes will be quarantined for the required time.  Please support us with this fundraising event- your help would be very much appreciated!

Here is a quick reminder of what is planned for the children between now and the end of term….


Christmas lunch will take place on different days for each class, it will be followed by party games / disco in the hall.  The children may wear their party clothes for the day (but sensible shoes please).  If your child is on packed lunch but would like a Christmas Dinner, please pay via SIMS pay.  Please pay any dinner money arrears before booking a Christmas dinner.

Christmas Cards –  If the children wish to write Christmas cards for their friends. We will put boxes at the front and back door of the school for Christmas cards (once we have finished the Lalley Centre Food bank appeal).   Christmas cards need to be brought to school by Friday 11th December.  These will then be quarantined – sorted – and then quarantined again ready for children to take home on the last day of the school term.  School closes on Friday 18th December at 1.30pm

Hope you have a happy and safe weekend.  See you all on Monday.

With love and prayers,

Mrs Johnson
