Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back to school after the half term. This final half term looks to be a very busy one! Please see below this week’s latest news, updates and reminders.

Latest news:

  • Welcome Back – Please see here for a Welcome Back message from the Senior Leadership Team.
  • Summer Club – We have been informed of a Summer Holiday club which will be held at Barley Croft Primary School. The club has free places for children who receive free school meals. Please see here for more information.
  • Football – On Tuesday boys from the Y6 Football team attended a final in connection with the Leicester City Primary Schools Football League, Division 1 league. We finished as runners-up in the final, however, we then went on to win the Fair Play and Respect cup - LCSFA introduced a Respect Initiative in September 2021 for the whole of the 2021/22 season. All LCITC coaches have been observing each session and awarding marks out of a 100 to all schools. For the team to win this Cup is a fantastic achievement. We are incredibly proud of how well the boys represented ARH not just on Tuesday but throughout the entire season – well done! For photos, please click here.
