Unfortunately this years School Summer fayre will not be able to go ahead.
Hopefully we will be able to have a fabulous Christmas fayre in December.
The Friends group have a great fundraising idea that they will chare with you shortly for the children for this term.
Please could we remind all parents that the school playgrounds should be cleared of parents and children 5 minutes after your child has finished school for the day.
Please do not gather in groups on either playground or allow children to be running around when your child has been let out from class at the end of their day – this also applies if your childs class are the last class to come out of school at the end of the day.
Thank you for your co-operation in this.
Thank you to those who have returned their reply slips. If you are yet to return, can we please have them in by the end of the day on Monday 14th June.
Saturday 10th July ( weather permitting) the Summer Fayre will be held outside on the school field.
There will be lots of stalls for you to come along and have a look at and spend your pennies.
If anyone would like to run a stall please contact the school office or speak to one of the Friends committee
Kerrie Williams, Tahlia Williams, Sam Short, Sarah Parry
Your support at this event is invaluable and we will be having some collections in the lead up to the fayre for the tombola/raffle etc which details will be published soon.
Unfortunately if the weather is bad/predicated to be raining on the Friday night/Saturday the event will have to be cancelled as it is not possible this year to hold the fayre inside – please keep an eye on social media for any updates on the Friday
Fingers crossed for a nice day and a great turnout
This month there will be a bags to school collection
on Monday June 28th at 09.00
The bags will be handed out in classes very soon and please can they be returned on the date only– not before as any wet/spoilt clothes or ripped bags the company will have to leave at school for us to dispose of as they will not take them.
We do not have any place inside school to store them.
You can fill the bags up with all your unwanted clothing etc and this will then generate money for the school
Thank you for your support with this 🙂
Please could we remind everyone to send in sun cream ( to be self applied ) or for long wear sun cream to be applied before school.
Also for sun hats to be brought in – with this weeks warmer weather and the next few weeks hopefully being the same it is important that the children have sun cream on and hats to wear
Please ensure that your child has a water bottle every day – this is extremely important to ensure the children stay hydrated throughout the day.

Learn to Ride @ Telford Town Park – Half Term Activity
The Road Safety Team are running 12 sessions between 1st – 4th June in Telford Town Park. These sessions are great fun and help children develop their balance and co-ordination skills all whilst building confidence and self-esteem.
These are bookable online at www.telford.gov.uk/cyclingactivities
Please see attached letter from Dr Eatough
During the half term period
Please notify the school if your child has received a confirmed COVID result by emailing Mr Ames at firstname.lastname@example.org
Within the email, please confirm when the positive test result was received.
Please could we remind everyone that you should not arrive in the car park more than 5 minutes before you collect/drop off your child/ren.
Please can you ensure that you park in the car park and not the lane.
The staggered times are in place to ensure that there are no crossover times of Classes which should mean that there are enough spaces in the car park for each family at their designated pick up/drop off time.
This will keep all families safe and means that the lane is free of cars for any families who are coming in and out of the car park or who walk down the lane in the mornings or afternoons and will stop any traffic problems on the main road.
Thank you for your co-operation

The Big Ask Children’s Survey, from the Children’s Commissioner
The Children’s Commissioner for England, Dame Rachel de Souza has launched a once-in-a-generation review of children’s lives.
It’s called ‘The Childhood Commission’ and it will identify the barriers preventing children reaching their full potential and propose policy solutions to address them.
At its heart is ‘The Big Ask’ – the largest ever consultation held with children.
In this survey the Children’s Commissioner is asking children and young people what they think is important for their future and what is holding young people back. The Children’s Commissioner will use what children and young people tell her to show the Government what they think and what they need to live happier lives.
We have had great feedback from schools and parents who have taken part:
“Me and my six year old just completed #TheBigAsk. She loved it…Great way to talk about feelings and very child friendly. Also loved the quiz at the end” Jane (parent) parent
“It is vitally important that we listen to children and give them a forum to speak to us to help us understand them better… Having children identify what they see as potential barriers to their lifelong success is powerful and gives us the opportunity to improve their chances of great success. I encourage all children and families to get involved and ensure that their voices are heard!” Angela Watts (Headteacher at The Arbours Primary Academy)
