Dear Parents / Carers,

We have had a lovely week in school this week as the children continue to settle into routines and timetables. The week has been filled with voting for key pupil roles for Head pupils and Team Captains and I have to say that the standard of speeches and presentations made it very difficult to choose. Congratulations to those pupils that have taken on these roles, I am sure they will make excellent role models.

Thank you to everyone who has donated good quality second hand shoes. This has been really helpful so please keep us in mind as your child grows out of their school shoes throughout the year.

As you will be aware, school is closed on Monday due to the bank holiday and National Day of Mourning for the Queen's funeral. We re-open on Tuesday at 8:35am.

Just a couple of notices this week:

  • Please ensure that your child brings a coat to school. As the weather is starting to become cooler, we have noticed a few children saying they are cold at play time but have no coat in school.
  • Please do not allow your children to run through the car park as they arrive or leave the school. They should be on the paths with you.

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Karen Williams

Head Teacher

Harvest Festival

We will be celebrating Harvest and thinking about thankfulness in school on 5th October with the worship that day led by our new Head Pupils and Year 6 Team captains. Although we don't have room to invite parents to the worship, we would be very grateful for any donations of tinned or dried goods which we then donate to the Selby Food Bank. They are particularly in need of tinned spaghetti, baked beans, tinned custard and rice pudding as well as tinned soups if you are able to help. Please bring items to school on 5th October and the food bank will collect them that day. Thank you.
