Reading Videos

Don’t forget that we are collecting videos of parents and members of our community reading a short story, poem of excerpt from a book. We want to share these with our children to inspire them and encourage them to read.

Parent Survey

The MAT parent survey will close on Monday. You still have time to complete it if you have not yet done so -

Learning Review Day

On Wednesday 9th March we will have our Learning Review Day. The school will be closed for normal lessons all day as this is one of our allocated training days. Instead, we will have consultation meetings throughout the day. We hope to be able to invite you into school to have the meetings in person, and children in Sycamore and Maple will also be able to attend. Timetabled appointments will be available to book soon.

Valentine's Bun Sale

Reminder that on Monday 14th February FOSS are holding a Valentine’s bun sale. We would welcome donations of cakes or buns to sell after school. These will be charged at £1 each which children can pay in cash or through ParentPay.

Crazy Hair Day

Thursday 17th Feb will be a Crazy Hair day in aid of FOSS. We encourage children to come into school with a crazy hairstyle on that day in return for £1 donation, which can be paid in cash or on ParentPay.

Eco Warriors

This week’s water saving tip from our Eco Warriors is: Check your property regularly for leaks on your internal plumbing.

School Lunches

Please see the new Spring 2022 Lunch menu below. Next week we will be on Week 3 of lunches.

Children can decide daily whether they are having a school dinner or packed lunch.

Please ensure you discuss the menu each day with your child so they can decide what they would like to order. Once they know their choices, they will choose this each morning with their teacher during registration.

Each day there are 4 choices, either the hot dinner, hot vegetarian option, jacket potato with a choice of toppings or a sandwich. The sandwich and jacket potato always come with a selection of vegetables/salad on the side and have the full pudding choice for that day.

Spring 2022 Lunch Menu

From w/c 4th January - w/c 4 April 2022 This is our new menu for the Spring Term

Application for Pupil Absence Form

This form should be completed by the parent/carer and returned to the school as far in advance as possible and preferably preferably with sufficient notice before the first intended day of absence.
