Pyjamarama Friday 13th May.

Pyjamarama is back for 2022!

On Friday 13th May, we are inviting all children and staff to spend the day in their pyjamas. We will be reading and sharing stories whilst raising money for BookTrust. Pyjamarama is a fantastic cause to raise vital funds to help every child get a bedtime story. Please make any donations on the day via Parent Pay. Thank you!

More information about the cause can be found here:

PTA would like to hold a second hand uniform stall on Sports Day. If you have any uniform you can donate please drop it at the office as soon as possible to enable us to sort it ready for the day. Thank you.

Staff Email Policy

We have just published a new Staff Email Policy which can be found on our website. This identifies our expectations of staff using email as a form of communication. Please be aware that staff are only expected to respond to emails during working time, and in the interests of preserving a work-life balance they should not be expected to respond to emails on evenings or weekends.

Goodbye Mrs Lee.

Sadly, we said goodbye to Mrs Lee this week. She has been a real asset to our school over the last 4 years and will be missed. We all wish her well for the future.

Fire Safety Message.

The police have requested that you please speak with your child about remembering the importance of fire safety outdoors, particularly following a period of dry weather. During the Easter holiday, a campfire in Hambleton spread and got out of hand causing £20,000 damage.

Trainee Teachers in School.

Parent Volunteers

We are delighted to be able to have volunteers into schools again, and would welcome parents to help us. If you are able to give any time to us, either on an ad-hoc or regular basis, you will need to complete a DBS application. Please contact the office for more information.

Save the Date Friday 3rd June - Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

Monk Fryston School have been invited to join in the Monk Fryston and Hillam Platinum Jubilee celebrations during the day on Friday 3rd June - this is one of the Jubilee Bank Holidays on the half term holiday. School children can take part in a parade through the villages followed by a picnic (packed lunch) on the school field. This will be provided by Monk Fryston Parish Council. We hope you and your family can save the date for what will be a fun-filled, historic village and school event.
