Parents In Partnership

A big thank you to parents who’ve attended any parents’ meetings and workshops since Christmas.  We hope you have found them useful and we are now planning further work we can do with parents as a result of our feedback from you.

We have plenty more on offer for parents this half term – see dates below.  If you want more information about any of the parent workshops please speak to Mrs Nock or Miss Bodin.

Parents’ Evening

If you were unable to make our parents’ evening, please speak to your child’s class teacher and arrange time to speak to them about your child’s learning.

Maths Lessons

This half term you will be invited to take part in a maths lesson with your child in their classroom.  Dates and times will follow shortly.

We are encouraging all families to attend any meetings, lessons, workshops or parents’ evening as we believe they are beneficial to your child’s future learning.

Defibrillator Delight

We now have a community defibrillator situated just outside the school.  This would not have been possible without the local community giving generously.  Look out for our photo in the ‘Express and Star’!

World Book Day

This will be celebrated on Friday 8th March with children can dressing up as their favourite book character. 

Who will you be?

Celebrating Mrs Thompson

We will be celebrating Mrs Thompson’ contribution to our school community during this half term.  As part of this many children and families have spoken about wanting to raise money in her memory.  We will be sending further information about this soon.


Because of other fundraising we’ll be doing this term and the expense of World Book Day, I have decided that we will not be celebrating Red Nose Day (Friday 15th March) this year.  However, if the children wish to show their support for this too, they can wear their red noses on the day and we will collect donations.


Easter is a time of celebrating new life and I have decided to try out something new this year.  Our only school competition will be for family decorated eggs –see separate letter for information. Judging will take place!  First, second and third place will win Easter eggs – yes parents you’ll win an egg too!

There will be an Easter Bonnet Parade where all entries will receive a crème egg, but these will not be judged.  We can’t wait to see your imaginative and beautiful creations.

The Easter Church service will take place at St Mark’s on Thursday 11th April at 2pm.
