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.

Poppy Appeal
Poppies will continue to be sold in school this week. If your child would like to purchase a poppy, a minimum donation of at least 20p is recommended.

Football Team
Well done to the football team who played against cup holders, Lower Park, last Tuesday, 29th October. Unfortunately they lost 1-0 but Mr Lane was extremely proud of the team and their performance.

Morrisons’ “Let’s Grow” Vouchers
These vouchers have now stopped being issued, however we have until the end of November to collect them up and send them in for processing. Please could you have a look at home and send in any vouchers you may have lying around by Monday 25th November? Many thanks.

Children in Need Day
The School Council have agreed that for Children in Need Day this year people should come to school wearing pyjamas, onesies or something spotty. Teddies are very welcome for the day too 
Each child is asked to bring a minimum of 50p to donate to charity and the children have requested that the money raised be split between Children in Need and Millie’s Trust. Millie’s Trust is aimed at raising awareness of paediatric first aid and was founded in memory of a 9 month old girl who died from a choking incident at her nursery just over a year ago. The children have also asked if they can run a café at the end of the day selling cakes and biscuits to raise more money. Any cake donations should be sent into school on the morning of November 15th. Thank you.
