For those parents that wish to pay for school lunches on a weekly basis we would be most grateful if dinner monies could be sent in to school on a Monday morning in a sealed and clearly marked envelope, this is due to a change in our banking arrangements.  

Lunches can still be paid in advance either monthly, 1/2 termly or termly if you should wish by cash or cheque payment(made payable to Telford & Wrekin). These payments cannot be made via the schools online payment system. Any monies will be carried over for absence or trips that occur. 

Many thanks Mrs Case

Future of Church Preen Pre- School

The Preschool Committee requested a meeting with Shropshire Council, following that meeting we wish to make a statement.

As we move through the year, it is apparent that the Pre-school is in imminent danger of closing.

The Number of incoming pupils for Sept 2019 is critical low and unless additional children can be found to attend the decision to close permanently will be made by 1st June 2019.

This obviously will have negative connotations, for Church Preen Primary School, as the Pre-School has, for the last 11 years, been the main source of new pupils for the school.

We are asking for everyone to publicise the existence of this wonderful setting before it is lost for good, by encouraging and recruiting new families to join us.

We are actively publishing our facility through all avenues available, we have a number of flyers and poster, if you wish to help us advertise, and spread the word.

If you are able to help, us or have any suggestions, please contact

Clare Selby on 07813384663,

Kate Dawson on 07825 292 644

There is a Bank Holiday weekend of activities to look forward to this year. Click on the Bookfest picture above to view the information. 

Please ensure that your child has the following in school on a daily basis.

  • A coat. Although the weather has been glorious for the last few days this is not always the case and we still endeavour to get the children out into the fresh air even if the elements are a little inclement. 
  • A water bottle containing water for use during the school day.

Safeguarding your children

If there is a change to the collection arrangements of your child at the end of the school day, then it is important that you inform us via a telephone call to the school office or a message in the link books provided for such communication. 

Thank you

 

School Play Equipment and Areas

We appreciate that the pupils enjoy to remain on school property at the end of the school day but we would like to remind parents that pupils and siblings are not allowed to play on or around the play equipment including the traversing wall, tyre park or equipment in the barked areas.

This is because for insurance purposes children should only use school equipment when a teacher is present / supervising. We would request that you do not let younger siblings use it while they are waiting at the beginning or the end of the day. 

Dental / Medical appointments 

Where possible these appointments should be sought out of school hours, so as not to impede your child's learning, but in the event that this is not possible then it is imperative that the appointment card or letter is bought to the school office, so the correct absence code can be
