Thank you to Year 6 for their informative and interesting assembly on World War II and Remembrance this morning. Thank you to Miss Sethi and Mr Harding and to all the parents who came to join us.
The next class assembly will be Year 4 on Friday 15th November at 9.10am. All parents and family members are welcome to attend.
A reminder that the next PTFA meetings will be held on:
- Tuesday 3rd December – 4.00pm

Energy Saving Month
From 4th November until 4th December it is energy saving month. The Eco-committee are working hard to ensure that staff and pupils know ways that they can help us to save energy such as turning off lights and taps, ensuring computer screens are put on standby and closing any doors and windows. If we are able to save energy during this month there will be a special dress up day next term!
On the week beginning 11th November, we are thinking about Anti-bullying week. This year the theme is ‘Change starts with us’. To mark the start of the week we will be having an Odd Socks Day on Tuesday 12th November. Pupils can wear odd socks with their uniform for the day and bring in £1. This will be sent to the Ursuline Project in Cambodia, our Ursuline focus charity this year.
DUE TO THE GENERAL ELECTION, THE CHRISTMAS FAIR WILL NOW BE HELD ON FRIDAY 29TH NOVEMBER 3.45PM-6PM
As you know many of the stalls and the fair itself relies on the generosity of YOU the parents so we thought it would be easier and more organised to have a timetable for donations over the preceding weeks.
The front office has kindly agreed to accept all donations which can be placed in the boxes provided.
Week 2: 11th November – 15th November
Teddies/Soft Toys – this was a particularly popular stall last year – ‘Adopt a Teddy’ – please donate any new/nearly new soft toys that we can use.
Week 3: 18th November – 22nd November
Friday 22nd November – Bring a bottle for Non-Uniform Day
The children may attend school in their own clothes in exchange for a bottle of something nice. All donated bottles will be used for the ‘Bottle Tombola Stall’ and we would very much appreciate any kind of wine, spirit or bubbles or a non-alcoholic alternative.
International Dishes and Homemade Cakes – we would be extremely grateful for any kind donations for the kitchen or for ‘Mrs Claus’ kitchen.
Hamper Stall – due to the generosity of each class’ hamper donation the hamper stall has been very successful for many years. The class PTFA representative has probably already been in touch to start the ball rolling. Please see list below for the classes. A very big thank you in advance as the hampers really do add the WOW factor to the fair.
- Nursery: Chocolate and sweets
- Reception: Cuddly toys and games
- Year 1: spa/pamper hampers – 1 for ladies and 1 for gents
- Year 2: cookery/baking equipment
- Year 3: Christmas food/preserves and drinks
- Year 4: stationery and craft and books
- Year 5: sports and afternoon tea
- Year 6: movie night and midnight snack
Please note that there will be NO After School Club on this date to enable everyone to attend the Christmas Fair.
Prize Day Trophies
Congratulations to all the children who won their class cup at prize day. A reminder to please have your child’s name engraved and return the cup to the school office as soon as possible. These will then be displayed in our trophy cabinet outside the main office. Thank you to those who have already returned them.
Please make sure that your children’s belongings are clearly labelled. There are a number of items already in lost property. The Year 6 pupils will be displaying lost property for collection each Friday morning before school. Please be advised that if there is no name and it has not been claimed, uniform items will be sent to the used uniform shop and non-uniform items will be given to the local charity shop.
The role of class parent is to help improve communication between home and school and also to increase parent involvement. Class parents are the coordinators of support for your child’s class. They help organise support for teachers and class room activities as needed and facilitate a sense of community among the children’s families. They strengthen communication between the school and the families. Thank you to those who have already volunteered. Please see the list below.
|Class||Parent’s name||Child’s name|
|Year 5||Suki||Kieran G|
|Year 4||Mansi + Amanda||Vihaan + Larelle|
|Year 2||Kiren + Nkechi||Jayan + Nkem|

Please can you inform the office if you have any new contact details (email address, phone, address, etc.).
