Christmas Jumper Day

Friday 15th December 2017

Everyone had an absolutely brilliant day raising lots of money for ‘Save the Children’. We all wore our silliest and most festive jumpers and donated £1. The teachers all took part in a hilarious jumping competition- well done to Mrs Potter who was the winner and to Miss Vines and Miss Lane who were runners-up.

After school we had a cake sale and raised even more money. Thank you to everyone who brought a cake and a big thank-you to all who donated cakes.

Each child also designed a new jumper for Ms Cooper… well done to Bryan in Year 4 who won for his amazing design!

Congratulations to our wonderful Orchestra who warmed us all up this morning with their traditional Christmas Concert, including the usual mixture of solo and full Orchestral performances. Thank you to everyone who attended this morning to support our talented musicians.

Please make sure that you are checking the diary for times and dates of events, as there is a great deal happening throughout the coming days in the build up to the end of the term next Wednesday 20th December.

We have been informed this morning that it is possible for families to attend the Grenfell National Memorial Service taking place on Thursday 14th December. To receive tickets, then TODAY you need to attend The Clement James Centre, 95 Sirdar Road, W11 4EQ. Please take photographic ID and proof of address.

Winter Holiday Activities 2017

Monday 27th November 2017

Happy Monday !

Monday 27th November marks the start of our Election Campaign for Head Boy and Head Girl. Candidates have already written a detailed letter explaining why they should be considered for this role and then today, they were able to present their ideas to the whole school, followed by an unrehearsed question time. They all did really well, and we are immensley proud of all 15 candidates who each had to deliver a speech with no technology or other props.

Voting will take place throughout the week, with the results being posted on Monday 4th December. Good luck to all our Year 6 Applicants.

Please see below a link to our Safeguarding page where we have uploaded three recently published ‘Think You Know’  Parents and Carers Guides to Snapchat, Facebook and Musical.ly. We hope that you will find these of some use.

Our traditional Christmas Lunch will be on Friday 15th December. If your child currently has a packed lunch, but you would like them to have school lunch on this day, then please can you inform the Office by Friday 1st December.

On Wednesday 29th November at 9.15, our school Educational Psychologist, Jane Roller will be holding a coffee morning and offering a space for parents to discuss any concerns they may have in relation to their children’s wellbeing following the Grenfell Tower Fire.

You are invited to come along and stay for as much or as little as is helpful to you.

Tuesday 21st November 2017

Please see below an invitation from The Art Room, located at Barlby, where many of our children attend regular sessions. They are hosting a Parents’ Workshop over the next two Mondays and have extended the invite to our community.

These sessions will be a little like the ones that were run in the Summer, with an art project for people to join in with and take away should they want to but, you are also welcome to ‘drop in’ and see the space, have refreshments and benefit from precious quiet / social time.
