£2.40 per day /£12 per week

Commencing 24th February 2020 we will no longer be returning change for dinner money payment. Instead, the amount will be carried forward on your child's account to the following week and so on. We are also politely requesting that as from 24/02/2020 all dinner money is given in at the school office in a sealed envelope marked clearly dinner money, your child's name and the amount enclosed. An E-Receipt will be issued by email. 

Lunch money can be paid weekly, monthly, half-termly or termly.

 

Due to the current situation with Coronovirus the Easter Service at Hughley Church has been canceled. It is felt that the service attracts many folks from the ‘vulnerable’ groups and as we will all be in very close contact, indoors that this is the right course of action. Thank you for your understanding. 

The first Mother's day Lunch is due to take place this coming Wednesday. Please be aware that this event takes place in a confined space and in light of the coronavirus, if anyone from a vulnerable group should feel they don't wish to attend please let Mrs. Plant know. 

Children's Author Grant Koper will be coming to school to visit our KS1 children and to read his original book The Day Granny's Knickers Blew Away on the 23rd March 2020. While he is here pupils will have the opportunity to ask questions and take away their very own signed copy of the book to read over again. Follow this link to download an order form which needs to return to school along with the money by Monday 16th

Traditional 1940's dress is highly encouraged for both children and parents.

Church Preen V Brockton Football Match 

29th February 2020 POSTPONED

Tri-sports football update.......

Given the recent awful weather which has left the football pitch waterlogged, and the storm forecast for this Saturday we have taken the decision to rearrange the planned Brockton v Church Preen football match. We will now play on Saturday 28th March instead.

We’re very sorry, we were really looking forward to it, but Mother Nature has spoken! We hope you’ll all be able to play or support us on the new date.

Thanks again

Laura and Laura.

A couple of school rules for those new parents joining our community and a reminder to the rest of the community. 

Safeguarding your children

If there is a change to the collection arrangements of your child at the end of the school day, then you must 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 remaining 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 of 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 if this is not possible then the appointment card or letter must be bought to the school office, so the correct absence code can be

Please note that we have been advised by the Local authority that the insurance on the school taxi is invalidated if friends accompany children who are entitled or pay for this travel. Therefore in future alternative arrangements will need to be made as they are no longer able to travel in the taxi with them.
