School Reports July 2024

End of year reports will be sent home with your child on Friday 12th July.   If an additional copy is required by a parent who does not live at the child’s home address, you must contact the school office on 387720 or email newdale.primary@taw.org.uk to make a request by no later than Wednesday 10th July.

Please ensure that you keep your copy of the report safe, especially if your child is in Year 5.  Some secondary schools (such as Thomas Telford) require a copy to be sent with the application for Year 7 places and we will be unable to make further copies for you once they have been archived.

Art Day

We need lots of Tetrapak and Pure-Pak cartons like the ones in this picture for a very exciting printing project with Ironbridge Fine Arts on Art Day next week. These cartons often contain fruit juice, oat or almond milk, coconut water, toddler formula etc. Please send any empties in with your child as soon as possible (clean, dry and opened out if possible!). Thank you for your help 😊



Wrekin Walk – Final reminders

We are really excited about tomorrow’s trip up the Wrekin

Just a few reminders for you:

  • Please ensure children bring coats and carry their lunch etc in a rucksack so their hands are free.
  • Children should have a plastic bag in their rucksack to sit on in case the ground is wet.
  • The first three coaches containing year 1, 2 and 3 will arrive at the base of the Wrekin approximately between 9:30 and 9:40 with year 1 arriving first. Years 4, 5 and 6 are anticipated to arrive between 10:15 to 10:30.
  • Please note the base of the Wrekin will be very busy and police will be in attendance managing traffic.
  • If you plan on walking up with your child, please do not block coach access. You could also join your child’s class part way up to avoid congestion by the road. Regular updates will be posted on Facebook, signal permitting!
  • Please note that your child must remain with their whole class for safety reasons. If you have multiple children, you may choose to walk up with one class and down with another.
  • Adults must stay in the designated family area while the children make the heart shape at the top so the surrounding area is clear for drone footage.
  • All children will return to school on the buses even if parents have attended. If you have attended and wish to take your child straight home, it is ESSENTIAL that you sign your child out with ONLY their class teacher. If not, you can collect your child from classroom doors at whatever time they return but in order to leave school early, they must also be signed out by their class teacher. Otherwise, children will leave school as usual.
  • As there will be Macmillan merchandise, hospice cookies and Let’s Dine chocolate crunch on sale at the top, if you wish to purchase anything, you will need cash.
  • Please remember you may have to pay to park which may be a little way from the base.

Art Day

This year’s Art Day will be held on Friday 12th July. Children are once again being invited to “dress to express” in their most creative costumes but please bear in mind that there may be some messy activities! We will be working in house groups to create some fantastic pieces of art using recycled objects and your child’s teacher will let you know if they need donations of particular materials for their activities. In addition to this, we need lots (and lots!) of Tetrapak or Pure-Pak cartons for a very exciting printing project with Ironbridge Fine Arts. These cartons often contain fruit juice, oat or almond milk, coconut water, toddler formula etc. We would be very grateful for any clean, dry cartons that you can send into school. Thank you for your support.

Wrekin Walk update

As we get closer to our charity event, Climb Against Cancer, we have a few reminders for the day:

  • Car parking charges will apply- please follow the instructions on the pay machines. There will be additional areas to park such as Ercall Woods and near the Buckatree hotel should the bottom of the Wrekin be busy.
  • Police will be in attendance and illegal parking on double yellow lines will result in penalties.
  • We recommend car sharing where possible to minimise the amount of traffic at the bottom of the Wrekin.
  • Please ensure children have sensible footwear, sunscreen, hats, a small rucksack for their lunch and a water bottle.
  • Please bring cash to buy merchandise on the day.

Reminder for T-Shirt colours:
