Newsletter – January 2020

Wednesday 29th January

Dear Parents and Carers,


Throughout this half term Mrs Tippet has made visits to the school to begin the handover for her start on Monday 24th February.  She will be on the gate on Friday 7th February to meet parents and will join our celebration worship this day.  She is excited to be joining such a wonderful school community and is pleased to get the opportunity to come and spend time with us on this day. I have no doubt she will be a great asset to the school and enjoy working with you all.  Thank you for your continued support of Sigglesthorne Primary Academy.


Kind regards

Mrs S Hall




It is so important for the children to be in school whenever possible.  Our whole-school target is 97%.  We are at 96.2%. Thank you for supporting us in making sure your child is in school and ready to learn every day.


Sporting Opportunities

Thank you for all your support at our sporting events.  Mrs Wrightson (our Sports Leader) is keen to get the children out and experiencing competitive sports in our cluster.  The cluster provides a great opportunity for competition across the region and is a great way for children to experience competitive sport in a supportive atmosphere.


Nursery Places

Please spread the word to any friends and family you know that may be looking for a nursery place for their young child.  We have availability each day and offer a flexible approach to childcare for families.  Please do encourage them to contact the school office to get a prospectus and come and have a look at the school.

Collective Worship

This term we are exploring the people Jesus meets through our gospel readings as we journey through the half term.  Children have explored the values of Hope, Dignity, Joy and Wisdom in their Monday worship.  Ask your child about the stories we have covered as we have journeyed with Jesus through his baptism and visitation at the Temple.  We have been really impressed with their knowledge and the mature way in which they have not only explored, but demonstrated these values.


Parent Hub (Reminder)

All children will receive a paper copy of all letters and a parent hub upload of the letter will also be sent.  A Monday update of any events that week will be sent via parent hub and letters sent out will be uploaded as they are sent.  You can also visit our website to see our newsletters.
