We are hoping the children will be back just before 3.30pm – I will update you as soon as I know any more specific time.
If you could come to the KS2 playground and not to the front of the school – this ensures the childrens safety enabling them to come into the school premises before being collected.
All those children who will be attending Young Voices should come into school at the usual time on Tuesday.
They will be leaving by coach, late morning so will therefore require
2 sets of food – one for lunch time and one for tea time – there is no food provision at Young Voices for the children and there are no cutlery or drinks available – therefore please ensure that your child has enough lunch, tea, snacks and drinks to last them though throughout the whole day/evening.
Children who have purchased t-shirts will be able to wear them with their school trousers/skirts – ideally they will need to bring a school cardigan/jumper in case it is a bit chilly in the arena.
Those children who have not purchased t-shirts – please can they wear their regular school uniform
All children will also need to bring their school coat – as at the end of the evening it will be cold.
Children will all have to return to school on the coach – they will not be able to travel home with parents/guardians. You will be able to collect your child from the front of the school on their return – please park in the lane (not the bus stop or front car park).
Staff attending the event will have your childs ‘main contact’ phone number so please advise the school office on Friday 24th January if it is any different to the number we have on the system.
It will be a long day for everyone, however this will be taken into consideration the following day, however, they are all expected to be in school as usual on the Wednesday.
If you have any questions regarding the event then please speak to the office on Friday so we can try and answer any queries you may have.
If you have some binoculars they may be useful to try and spot the children!

The children will have a great week !
The Walking Bus is now up and running again as from Monday 20th January.

Please ensure they have their high visibility vest on each day they attend as this is part of the Walking Bus agreement.

Please note a change of days for Drama club week commencing 26th January 2020
The club will be on Wednesday 29th January and not Tuesday 28th January
Please ensure any wraparound bookings reflect this change
On behalf of those who have kindly arranged the Arthog hoodies to be done, they are outstanding some payments and have some payments which they cannot match up to the names of children that are attending Arthog.
If your payment has gone through but the name on the account that it has been paid from is not the same as your childs account then please let me know in the office straight away so the company can match this payment up with your childs order form.
Also if there is any reason your payment has not been paid then these will need to be completed today as any payments not completed then your order will unfortunately not be processed.
Any parent/carer who has a Telford and Wrekin DBS is invited to come into Class 3 to read each week (or alternate weeks if that suits you) with the children.
We have several people who have recently had DBS checks completed, and we would be grateful for any regular volunteering sessions with the children.
Please let me know in the office if you can volunteer.
