Religious Education Themed Week

In the autumn term, the children all learnt about Sikhism. In the spring term, the children all learnt about Christianity. Due to school closure, teachers were unable to teach our summer term Islamic unit to the children.  Therefore, the final themed week for the summer term will be based on our whole school unit on Islam. Please click on the PDF to find out activities you can take part in with your child/children.

After school club arrangements – September 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

We are delighted to be able to re-open our after school club in September as we know that many people rely on it to support their family needs.

The costs of this provision remain the same:

3.10pm – 4.30pm   £5.50

3.10pm – 6.00pm    £9.00

Many schools are suspending wrap-around-care but we very much want to be able to continue to support working parents. Be assured that we are very conscious of the need to abide by the government advice and guidelines concerning the ongoing Covid-19 threat, and therefore there will be some inevitable alterations to our provision.

Children will be grouped in bubbles and these groups will not mix. We will be keeping very clear records in case we have need of the ‘track and trace’ process.

Timings of ASC will remain the same but we must stress that if you have booked your child in until 6 pm then you will need to have collected them promptly as our site closes at 6 pm.

Collection will be slightly different as outlined below:

For collection of children before 4.30 pm, the office will be manned up until this time. You will be able to buzz through from the main entrance (do not enter the school building) and a member of staff in the office will radio through to ASC to have your child sent to you.

For collections of children after 4.30 pm, the double doors at the back of the hall will be your new collection point as it is a larger outdoor area in which to wait once the office is no longer manned. One of the ASC bubbles will be in the hall and their member of staff will radio though to the other bubbles as required to send for your child.

If you will require an after school place in September, we now need to know in advance exactly who will be attending and for how long. Please contact school in order to book your child in. We need as much notice as possible so that we can be confident in our staffing and room allocation. No same day bookings will be accepted for this reason.

Kind regards 

Miss Cook


Fancy Dress Friday!

As part of the Newdale Mini Olympics week, children have been invited to dress up this Friday (10th July) to complete their final sporting challenge. If your child is currently in school, then they are also welcome to attend in fancy dress of their choice. However, please note that children will not be changing their costumes in school. They will therefore remain in their costume all day, including trips to both PE and Forest School.

We look forward to seeing all of your costumes. Don’t forget to share them on the school homework blog 😊
