Miss Newport’s class had lots of fun practising some circus skills today. Our visitor from the circus showed us how to use scarves, beanbags and even peacock feathers to do some circus tricks. We learnt that it must take a lot of practise to be a member of the circus!
A reminder for parents/carers, the entrance to school off the Rock Road through our electronic gates is for STAFF only and is not to be used as a route into school to drop children off. There is also no pedestrian access allowed through this gate. Thank you for your co-operation.
Bike to school week is taking place between 27th September and the 1st October 2021.
It’s a great opportunity to celebrate cycling and scooting and the positive impact it has on children’s health and wellbeing as well as the environment.
We are very lucky to have bike sheds here at school and would like to encourage as many families as we can to bike or scoot to school that week. It is hoped that by biking to school, pupils will think about their journeys to school, understand the benefits of active travel, and consider the causes and effects of air pollution.
At Newdale, we are committed to making sure that we teach our children how to stay safe. We want our children to be able to be confident in their understanding of what consent is, in a variety of situations. We have created a set of lessons which we would like your feedback on. Please have a look at the lessons on http://www.newdaleschool.org.uk/home/curriculum/subjects/sex-education/
and leave feedback using the link on the page.
Harvest time is nearly upon us and as we have done in previous years, this year we will be collecting food items for Telford Crisis Support. The charity will be coming into school to see us in assembly on Monday 27th September to explain the work that they do. Following this, we would appreciate it if you were able to spare and send into school any food items (tinned or packaged and in date please) that you do not require. Please can children take the items to their classrooms and teachers will gather them together. The charity will collect the donations the following week on Monday 4th October. Thank you in advance for you help.
Following on from the Olympics this year, if your child takes part in a sport outside of school, we would love to have some photos showing what they do to go on our sports board.
Please send photos to Mrs Goodwin with your child’s name and year group on the back. Photo’s can also be sent in via email, please use the school email address which is firstname.lastname@example.org
Telford & Wrekin have causal and permanent cleaning hours available to start asap, if you are interested please contact them on 01952 384414 and leave your details and someone will make contact with you.

We are constantly reviewing our systems and have decided to alter the drop off and pick up arrangements slightly to hopefully improve things for everyone.
The queues of people outside of the main front gate, along the road are a concern for us and therefore we are going to allow people on site through the top gate and main gate more freely. The internal gates however will not open until the classrooms are about to open. This new system would at least allow people to wait for a short time on site, rather than on the busy road. Nursery opens at 8.30am and school at 8.40am, so please do not arrive on site much earlier than this as it would then result in you waiting with other people.
It would help us if you encouraged/allowed older children to be independent and walk to class on their own please.
We ask you to be really careful around the school car parks at these busy times. We do have a number of blue badge holders who have permission to come onto site. Where possible, we have asked that they limit movement at key busy times from now on to help us keep everyone safe.
This new system will begin at pick up time today and as ever we will review and alter again if we deem it necessary.
Thank you for your continued support and patience.
