Attendance
Well done to class Y4W who had 100% attendance last week.
If your child is not in school for any reason, please phone the school office to let us know. The answer machine is on from 4:00pm until 8:30am so it is always possible to leave a message.

Christmas Fair
Thank you for the amazing turnout at Friday night’s Christmas Fair. It was lovely to see so many people in school. A huge thank you to all the people involved in setting it up and manning the stalls. We will let you know how much we raised as soon as possible.

Library Books
We have just received a delivery of £2000 worth of new books for our library. These have been paid for with money from the Friends’ of Nevill Road – thank you for your support. It will take us a little time to reorganise the library, as some of the colour bands on the books have changed, so please bear with us.
Unfortunately we have also had to throw out about a dozen books which have been ruined – pages torn out, covers ripped off, barcodes rubbed out and graffiti on pages. We would ask you to encourage children to treat the books with respect and to return them to the library in the correct state. Could I ask you please to also have a look around your homes for missing books? There are currently 45 books unaccounted for. Thank you.

Christmas Dinner
Reminder that the deadline for ordering Christmas Dinner is Thursday, 12th December. Those children who usually have school dinners will also need to order a Christmas Dinner. Any orders received after this date will be returned and a packed lunch will have to be brought in on the day. Slips are available from the School Office.

Key 103 Mission Christmas Cash for Kids Appeal
This year we are supporting Key 103’s Mission Christmas Cash for Kids appeal and have registered as a local drop-off point. We are kindly asking for donations of Christmas presents which will be given to children who are less fortunate than ourselves. If you would like to donate a toy please send it into school by Friday 13th December. Thank you for your support with this worthy cause.
