Update and dates for the summer term

Good afternoon, 

I hope you are well and ready for the weekend. 

It has been a busy and hot week, many pupils have brought their work to me and I am very proud of them. Year 5/6 have had a very successful residential to the Hollowford Centre in Castleton. Mrs Allan’s and Mrs Cox’s class really enjoyed their trip to Whistlestop. 

Thank you for supporting the clothing giveaway this week. We will be having a clothing giveaway termly and we will ask for donations before each event. We have taken all of the clothes that you have donated to the Hummingbird Project and they are very grateful. 

Weather next week

The forecast for next week is to be cooler with some rain. Please make sure pupils have a water bottle, sun cream applied before school if the forecast is hot and a coat if it is due to rain. 


The vast majority of the pupils are coming to school in the correct uniform for school and for PE. However, some pupils are coming into school in football kits or non-uniform. This is making them stand out from the other pupils and is not in our policy. If there is a problem, such as the washing machine has broken or there is a confidential matter, please make me or the class teacher aware. If there is a genuine reason, that’s fine but I don’t want to have to start phoning parents to bring in the correct uniform. 


The gates open at 8:45am and the register closes at 9:00am. If pupils are late, they miss a vital transition to the day with their peers and phonics or English. There has been a lot of lates this week and a lot of lost learning time. If there is a genuine reason and it is a one off, that is fine. If there is a reason or confidential matter that you would like to discuss with me, please make contact. From W/C 19th June 2023, we will be following the school policy and a fixed penalty notice could be issued if your child is late and a legitimate reason is not given. 

Thank you for all of your continued support and the reminders above are simply there to make your children’s time at school the best it can be. 

Have a great weekend.
