End of Term News

A wonderful leaver's lunch was enjoyed by the whole school followed by the disco. Goodbye and good luck to our Y6s, you have worked hard and been fantastic role models to the younger children. Enjoy and embrace the next phase of your life. 

We also bid a sad farewell to a couple of members of staff.  Mrs. Sullivan who began her time at Church Preen as our kitchen assistant then moving to keep order on the playground at lunchtime and Mrs. Bennison, class 3 TA on a Friday. 

Thank you also goes to Mrs. Kimber who has been in Class 1 since February. We wish her well in her new class at Millbrook Primary School. 

All that is left to say is stay safe and enjoy the summer break!

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

From SEPTEMBER our wrap around care will be extended to children from the age of 2 years upwards

Early Birds 7:45 am - 8:50 am  £5. per child
