Meadows In Action info only- The Pavilion is 200 yards across the field and it will probably be best to use the area Valley Road side of the pavilion. There are toilets/changing rooms and a kitchen area with an urn upstairs in the Pav.

School Disco

Thursday 17th July 6-7pm

Meadows In Action are organising the end of term school disco. This will be held in the main hall at school.

There is a cost of £2 per child and then 50p extra for a bag of sweets.

There will be no parking at the school as the red school gate will be closed. So please could all parking be on the roads outside the school. Once again we ask that you park considerately.

Afterschool enrichment Curriculum

On Monday 14th July, we will be having Andy visit us in assembly to talk about the Afterschool Sports Clubs available from September.

All children will be sent home on Monday with a booking form for all Afterschool clubs. Should your child wish to attend any of the clubs, the booking form and full payment in cash (where applicable) must be returned by Wednesday 16th July. Please do not transfer any amounts to the bank account for the clubs.

There is limited space in the clubs and spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis determined upon the return of the application form with payment. We hope to be able to accommodate all children with the clubs they would like, but it may be worth talking to your children to advise of the above.

If your child only wants to do the free clubs, please an you return the form so we can still determine the number of children in these clubs.

School Photos

School photo proofs will be going home with the children tomorrow - Friday 11th.

The order and payment needs to be back by Monday 14th July please.

The company will then aim to deliver the photos back to us by the end of term.

Exciting but sad news....

Unfortunately from the end of term Rachel in Dragonflies will be leaving The Meadows to head off to Liverpool with her partner to start her new family.......

We would all like to congratulate Rachel on her pregnancy news and wish her well and we will all miss you her much.
