Children’s Christmas lunch - Tuesday 17th December 2019.
If your child usually has a school lunch on a Tuesday, then a Christmas lunch will automatically be provided for them with no further action needed on your part.
If your child normally brings in a packed lunch from home but would like a Christmas lunch on that day, please complete the Google form below by Friday 6th December. Please only fill in the form if your child does not usually have a school dinner on a Tuesday.
Christmas lunch costs £2.30. Payment for this can be made online via your ParentPay account using the dinner money service. If you are unable to make payments online you will need a bar coded letter to enable you to pay cash at a Pay Point shop. If you require a Parent pay login or a bar-coded letter, please contact the school office.
Please advise the school if your child is a vegetarian or has any other dietary needs.
Unfortunately late returns cannot be accepted, as the food has to be ordered in advance.
We are once again having a children’s advent group after school. This year our advent group will look at the elements of the Christmas story and we will be using baking as our focus each week. We will also have a time of prayer, reflection and scripture within each session.
The group will run on the following dates:
Thursday 28th November – 3:30-4:15
Thursday 5th December- 3:30-4:15
Thursday 12th December – 3:30-4:15
If your child would like a place in advent group, then please email the school office. Places are limited.

As part of our school launch for ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’ we will be having a theme day to celebrate our school of rock stars. Your child is invited to dress up as a rock star to celebrate this on November 14th 2019.
On the day, the children will be introduced to our new program that will be running across Key Stage 2 to embed timetables and Key Stage 1 will be celebrating their journey to knowing their 2,5 and 10 times tables.
Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practise which they can complete at school and home. Each week concentrates on a different times table, with a recommended consolidation week for rehearsing the tables that have recently been practised every third week or so. There will be the opportunity to earn prizes and rewards for their efforts and achievements in the program.
We are very much looking forward to having a school of times tables rock stars!
EU SETTLMENT SCHEME
The government have introduced the EU Settlement Scheme for EU, EEA and Swiss citizens. You and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. If your application is successful, you’ll get either settled or pre-settled status.
The EEA includes the EU countries and also Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. You may be able to stay in the UK without applying - for example, if you’re an Irish citizen or have indefinite leave to remain.
When you can apply
The EU Settlement Scheme is open. You can apply now if you meet the criteria. The deadline for applying is 30 June 2021. Which status you get may depend on when you apply.
If the UK leaves the EU without a deal
You will need to be living in the UK before it leaves the EU to apply. The deadline for applying will be 31 December 2020.
It’s free to apply to the scheme.

You can find more information about Samaritan's Purse here: https://www.samaritans-purse.org.uk/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/
We will be sending out further information about this once we have received the fundraising pack.
