Dear Parents and Carers,


We have had another busy week in school this week and it has been lovely to start welcoming visitors back to the school.


On Tuesday, the whole school was treated to a super morning watching the pantomime as they told the story of Cinderella. There was lots of laughing, singing and 'he's behind you!' and the children were mesmerised. It was great to see everyone taking part and having such a good time. My thanks go to the Friends of Kirk Fenton who funded the visit.


On Thursday, Key Stage two had a visitor to assembly to teach them more about world faiths. Imran told the children lots about Islam and the five pillars it is built upon and was a very engaging speaker. Afterwards he spent some time in Year 6 teaching them about various aspects of Islam related to their RE work.


Finally, just one reminder this week - Please remember that our school grounds are a 'No phone zone' so unless it is an emergency, please put phones away when on our site and enjoy time talking to your children about their learning.


Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Karen Williams

Head Teacher

NYES Catering Competition

NYES Catering are excited to announce that their fantastic one-off opportunity to design their new mascot is NOW LIVE!


Brief

- We want to inspire primary and secondary pupils to get creative and design our new mascot based on what they would like to see from a catering mascot. Will they have powers, or be food related, or be a team with a leading mascot, or have sibling mascots (one for primary schools, one for secondary schools) – the pupils are the deciders in this one-off competition!

We’ve even enlisted the help of a 12-year old who previously attended one of our catered primary schools and loves superheroes as well as food – so we feel he will be a fantastic help in deciding the winner! He will be assisted by 2 of our in-house judges. We are all really looking forward to seeing all of the brilliant designs, and hearing about what the mascot designed means to the pupils, and the fun they have creating them.
The winner will see their mascot design come to life! This includes within our marketing from September 2022 and beyond.

How to enter

- Simply email your designed mascot (and it’s name) to: charlotte.firth@northyorks.gov.uk

Please include your pupil’s name, age, and details of the school they attend.

Deadline: 17:00 on Saturday 12th February 2022.

The winner will be announced on Wednesday 23rd February 2022.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with the latest competition developments!

Maximum age to enter is 18.

The best of luck to all – time to get creative!
