Newsletter – November 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

Well it’s certainly looking to be a busy half term ahead!  The shops are already paving the way to Christmas, which despite feeling early in November, is exactly what we are doing in our worships this half term.  Our values to explore this half term are hope, trust and wisdom.  We will be exploring these through the coming of Jesus as we explore the stories from the bible that lead us to Christmas.  I hope you are able to join us at one of the upcoming events this term.

Kind regards

Mrs S Hall and Mrs J Grant


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

Remembrance Service

We hope you are able to join us on Monday the 11th of November at St Lawrence Church at 11am for a beautiful service of Remembrance led by Reverend Andy.

Anti-Bullying Week

Tuesday the 12th November will see us launch our anti-bullying week with an odd sock day.  Most importantly, Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun!  It’s an opportunity to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!  There is no pressure to wear the latest fashion or for parents to buy expensive costumes.  All you have to do to take part is wear odd socks to your school. Children are invited to mix and match their best pairs and join the staff in an odd sock parade to celebrate our unique differences.

Children in Need 2019

Children in Need Day 2019.  Come in non-uniform and bring a £1 donation to support Children in Need.  Please make sure that clothing and footwear chosen by children is suitable for outdoor play.

Updates from Redemption Primary (our partner school)

Work in Sierra Leone has been busily underway during the rainy season and we’re pleased to let you know that the school building has stood up well to the weather and school has continued as normal for all of the children at Redemption Primary.  The whole community of Freetown in Sierra Leone are committed to combat flooding by ensuring that rubbish is probably disposed of and that streets are kept clear of debris. The work to support the school by our community and the local school community in Freetown has made a great difference to the building.  The money raised as we explored the global goals of safe water and equality helped the school to secure and repair windows and increase the stability of the front of the building.  As we continue our work on our global goals and equality I will ask once again that we support our partner school by donating the proceeds of our Christmas Jumper Day.  This money will be used to ensure that our partners have the resources (pens and paper required) to access their education.
