Dear Parents and Carers,

We hope you have all had a good week. The half-term is in full-swing and the children are working very hard in their new topics. Please see below this week’s latest news, updates and reminders.

Latest news:

  • Year 3 Saxons’ Workshop – Year 3 had a wonderful time on Thursday in their Saxon assembly and workshop. The children were really engaged and thought about what life was like during this time.

  • Lunch Menu Adjustments – The kitchen team would like to explain that due to some delivery difficulties the lunch menu may be subject to change. We will endeavour to let parents and carers know, when we can, regarding any menu adjustments. The kitchen team would like to apologise for this and appreciate your understanding as this is out of our control.
  • Online Sexual Harassment – We have been made aware of a new guide for parents regarding talking to your child about online sexual harassment. Here are some details to help support your child before they reach secondary school. There is a guide and poster.
  • Spring Half Term Food Offer – The city council is working with Samworth Brothers to support families with food during the February half-term. There are 19 pop up venues across the city that will give parents of vulnerable children the opportunity to collect food for the half-term.
