This year as a school we will be permitting Christmas Cards to be brought into school – the following procedure will be how this will be possible
- Cards to be brought into school on Thursday 10th December and Friday 11th December ONLY – we will not be able to accept any outside of these dates.
- Each classroom will have a post box for cards as the children enter their classrooms (they must be taken to class – by your child – if they attend breakfast club)
- All cards must be unsealed and placed in the box ( any cards that are sealed will not be issued due to the health and safety aspect of this)
- Remember to place the full name of the child the card is for on the envelope.
- The box will be left for at least 72 hours in the classroom.
- On Tuesday 15th December an adult wearing gloves will sort them out into piles for each pupil. Hand hygiene procedures will be used before and after sorting the cards.
- The cards will then be left for a further 72 hours until Friday 18th December
- Cards will be placed on children’s desks on the last day of term prior to the start of the day
- Cards will be placed straight into children’s school bags and opened at home.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all of the hard work and creativity that went into designing the Christmas tree decorations. I was very impressed with the different ways you turned your lollipop stick into a Christmas tree decoration and they are going to look fabulous on our class tree. It was a very hard decision for Mrs Cunningham to make, but I’m happy to announce the 3 winning designs she chose.
1st place- Alfie
2nd place- Harry
3rd place- Isla
The children have been awarded with a certificate and some chocolate, which I hope they’ll share with their families.
Have a lovely weekend!
Please can we remind parents/carers that if your child is going to be absent from school for an appointment then we will need to be informed of this prior to them being absent.
If you have a letter from hospital/dentist etc then please bring it to the office so they can take a copy of it.
If you do not have a letter but it is a pre booked appointment then you need to inform the office prior to the appointment taking place please.
Any absences due to illness must be reported to the school office by 09.30 on the first day of your childs absence – please speak with a member of staff in the office by telephone after 0830 in the morning to advise them of the reasons for the absence.
The office will then advise you if you need to call school each morning subsequently dependant on the illness.
It is especially important that you speak with the office if it is a COVID related absence rather than leaving a message on the answerphone.
Today is the last day Miss Randall is working at Crudgington School. She has been here as a supply teacher since September.
The children and staff have all loved working with Miss Randall and we wish her lots of luck in her future teaching career which we are sure will be very successful.
The children from all classes made cards for Miss Randall and the staff purchased some flowers and treats to say thank you for her hard work.
Make sure you come back and visit us when you can Miss Randall !!
From all of us here at Crudgington
On 12th November we sent home some plastic folders containing two exercise books and a three page letter detailing the schools Remote Learning Code of Conduct
We are still outstanding a high number of the Code of Conduct return forms which are on the back page of the letter which is contained within the plastic folder. These need to be completed and signed by all parents/carers
Please can these be returned by the end of this week as we are still outstanding more than 50% of the returns
Many thanks for your support
Saturday 5th December- Friends Christmas Raffle Draw
This will be done virtually and shown on the Friends Facebook page.
There are still a few tickets available if you require any more let me know in the office.
Wednesday 9th December – School Christmas Lunch
This year the children will have their Christmas lunches in their classrooms instead of in the school hall.
The cost of the meal is £2.25 – if your child pays for school meals then you will need to pay online at Telford and Wrekin school meals for this meal in advance of the day.
If your child has not chosen a school dinner you will need to send them with a home packed lunch that day as the school kitchen will not be serving any other hot meals or sandwiches that day.
Friday 11th December – Christmas Jumper Day
On this date the children are able to come in their own clothes (mufti day) wearing their Christmas jumpers/tops to support Save The Children – the donation for this is £1.00 per child.
Please send the children in with their donation – there will be collection buckets in each class- there will be a collection bucket at Breakfast club for any children there on that day also. This is so that the children can drop the money in as they come into school.
Please do not send the money in an envelope.
Friday 18th December -Last day of term
We break up for the Christmas holidays on this date. We return to school on Tuesday 5th January 2021 – Monday 4th January is a PD day so the children are not in school on that date.
Please can we remind everyone that they should only arrive 5 minutes before they are due to drop off or collect their children from school.
If everyone could please stick to their designated times for drop off and collection then there will be no situation where people are struggling to pull into the car park from the main road which has been causing some traffic jams.
With the roadwork’s in place this week also it is especially important that the main road is not blocked at any time.
Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes before you are due to drop off in the morning or collect your child/ren in the afternoons.
Also when waiting on the playground for your child/ren please can you ensure that you are stood on the markers which are marked 2 metres apart. These are in place to ensure adequate social distancing can be adhered to.
Many thanks for your support in this.
Following Fridays Mufti day for Children in Need we are delighted to say that we as a whole school have raised £174.00 which will be sent off to them this week
The children all looked fantastic and very brightly coloured on Friday.
Thank you for your support in raising money for this amazing cause.
We still have some lovely wristbands left if any of the children would like to buy them for £1.00 each (pink/orange or green)
Many thanks 🙂
Could all children please bring a warm coat to school every day – the children go out in the fresh air every day throughout the Autumn and Winter and do require a warm coat so that they can do this.
This month the children will be looking at the value of ‘Honesty’.
Please see the attached poster.

-There will be road closure on Sytch lane to Bolas junction w/c 23rd November for 4 nights also for repairs to the road
This year we are supporting the National Anti Bullying Week which is happening from
Monday 16th – Friday 20th November
It is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance. This year, more than ever, we’ve witnessed the positive power that society can have when we come together to tackle a common challenge.
Bullying has a long-lasting effect on those who experience and witness it. But by channelling our collective power, through shared efforts and shared ambitions, we can reduce bullying together. From parents and carers, to teachers and politicians, to children and young people, we all have a part to play in coming together to make a difference.
We’re all a piece in the puzzle, and together, we’re united against bullying.
On Monday 16th November please wear odd socks to school to show your support. There is no donation required for this – children will also be attending individual class assemblies on this subject during the week.
Please could parents/carers ensure that their child has a water bottle with them every day.
The message to request a contact number for the parent/carer on the booking system has not been working – please add your phone number next to your name until this has been resolved
This year we have children in need wristbands and pin badges for sale
They are first come first served as we only have 60 of each, we ask that children only buy the items for themselves and not other family members to ensure as many children as possible have the opportunity to purchase something if they wish to.
Please place the money in a sealed envelope with your childs name and amount of money in on the front. Please do not send loose money in to school as we want to minimise the handling of money by any children/staff.
These envelopes will be handed to the office by the class staff members – Mrs Cunningham will then send the item home in an envelope that day.
I will update on the website when we sell out of the items.
Please see attached poster for the Family Grapevine which can be found online
Reminder that the children whose parents/carers have given consent will have their flu immunisation on Friday morning.
Those children who do not have consent will not have theirs.
Please advise Mrs Cunningham in the school office on Friday morning between 0830 and 0900 if your child has been unwell in the previous 24 hours and/or has had medicine that morning
If after 0900 – the immunisations will already be taking place.
