Saxton Newsletter 9.9.22

Welcome Back!

We are delighted with the way all our children have settled into school this term, and particularly those who are new to our school. Thank you for helping them to make such a good start.

Our Queen

Obviously, we were extremely saddened to learn the news that our Queen, HRH Queen Elizabeth II, passed away this week. We will contribute to the national time of mourning by showing our respects, and will help our children by reflecting upon her life and service and celebrating her incredible reign. We will also help to prepare for the change to our new King.

Naming Items

Please remember to label all pieces of your child’s clothing, including coats and water bottles with their name. It is important that we are able to return lost items to their owners promptly.

FOSS AGM - 19/9/22

The FOSS AGM had to be postponed this week and will now take place on Monday 19th September at 7pm in school. Everyone is welcome to attend – please come along and find out about the things that we do.

FOSS Barn Dance

Don’t forget that the FOSS barn dance will take place on Saturday 15th October. Further details will be announced shortly.

School Lunches

Next week we will be on Week 2 of the new autumn lunches menu. Don't forget that the price of a school meal for KS2 children is now £2.50.


Children can still 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.


Packed Lunches - if you are sending grapes in your child's packed lunch, can you please ensure that these are cut in half.

Autumn 2022 Lunch Menu

From w/c 5th September 2022 - w/c 16th December 2022. This is our new menu for the Autumn Term

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.

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.

Diary Dates
