Welcome back to everyone
We hope you all had a lovely half term break and were able to make the most of the nice weather.
Just to remind everyone that parents/Carers should please not be on the school premises more than 5 minutes before they drop off and after they pick up their children. This includes at the end of the day when we ask that the playgrounds and car park are not places to gather with other parents/carers. Please leave these areas as soon as you have dropped off/picked up your children.
Unless there is a medical exemption for you not to wear a mask we ask that everyone on the school premises dropping off and picking up children does wear a mask at all times – this is to protect others as well as yourselves.
Please ensure that children are dropped off/collected at the correct times – if they have siblings in school then they should be dropped off at the earliest childs start time and picked up at the latest childs finish time. If for any reason you are going to be late then please advise the school office as soon as possible.
Any absences should be reported by telephone before 0900 – if at all possible please call after 0830 and speak to the office as they will need to talk to you in regards to your childs absence reason. The number to call is 01952 386910.
After the Easter break Class 2 will be welcoming the eggs from Living Eggs – the children will get to see the chicks hatch and be able to look after them whilst they are in school.
We are always looking for good homes for the hens and cockerels once they are born so if this year you could give a home to any then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We will not know until the time, how many will be born and if they will be male or female – however please let us know if interested in homing them. This will be on a first come first served basis and they will have to be going to homes that have a suitable garden/set up for the chicks as they do take some looking after 🙂
We hope you all have a wonderful Easter break.
Our last day of school is tomorrow ( Wednesday 31st March) and there is a PD Day on Thursday 1st April.
We return to school on Monday 19th April.
Thank you to all those families and companies who have given us kind donations of food and toiletries for the Food hub/Community Fridge – (this is accessible to all families within the Trust 10.00-2.00 each week day during the half term holidays at HLC and Wrekin View childrens centre) this is ongoing and donations are always welcomed.
And also to those families and companies who have donated items of flowers and plants/bird feeders and food, pallets, items for Forest school and of course the volunteers who have brightened up the school by doing all the planting and tidying up.
We in school are all very fortunate to have such amazing families and community support and we as staff do very much appreciate all of these things.
Have a lovely break and stay safe.

After speaking with them last week about the Community food hub they have kindly offered to donate each month £50.00 worth of toiletries and cleaning items to the Hub based at HLC and Wrekin View schools (accessible to all families whose children attend any of the LCT schools)
This wonderful gesture will mean so much to so many families and is very much appreciated.
Well done to all the children in school – who took part in the 1 minute silence to mark one year since the National lock down and to think about those who have lost loved ones during this time.
On Wednesday 31st March – THE LAST DAY OF TERM – There will be a themed lunch of fish and chips with beans and Easter puddings
The cost of this is £2.35 for those children who pay for school dinners and should be paid in advance of the meal being taken. It is free for those who are universal free school meals in reception, Year 1 & 2 and for those children who are entitled to free school meals.
The children do enjoy their themed days and it is a nice way to end the term for them.
Thank you to the catering staff for suggesting this theme day.

I will send home today (Tuesday) a new sandwich form for those already choosing that option so please look out for it and complete it ASAP and by Monday at the latest.

The Community Fridge and Community hub are based at Wrekin View Primary School and HLC Secondary school.
Families from within the trust (of which we are now part of) are able to access these facilities if they are in need of food and toiletry items.
To access the service at Wrekin View – the entrance is via the childrens centre which is attached to the school but is a separate entrance – this is open 8.00-5.00 each weekday.
To access the service at HLC – the entrance is via the Circle at HLC ( Main entrance) and is signposted from there.
There are no referrals needed and you do not need to register to use this service .
Here at Crudgington we will be collecting any regular/ad hoc donations for the Community hub and Fridge
Donations will be collected from Crudgington on a Thursday and taken to both places.
If you are able to support this by way of any donations of toiletries/ washing detergents/ non perishable food or treats then any donation whenever you are able to would be so very welcomed.
I will have a box in the school office for any donations of these items from Thursday 11th March 2021 – this will be ongoing –
Your support and kindness is very much appreciated
Due to us not being able to run the Gardening Club this year the parents who usually run the club kindly offered to attend the school grounds and attend to the pots and garden areas and put up the bee and insect houses, bird table and scatter some seeds which were all given to school via the biodiversity grant that a parent kindly applied for for us.
They have made a fantastic start on all of this and have also kindly been given £30 by The Friends towards compost etc for all the planters.
I contacted Roden Garden Centre and they have very generously donated us a trolley of beautiful flowers and plants which I collected yesterday, for the school grounds – which will be planted this week and will certainly brighten everywhere up.
Thank you to all involved in getting the school looking bright and creating an insect and bird friendly environment.
Please could I remind all parents and carers that the Contact details form should be handed in by Monday 22nd March at the latest please
We do still have a number of forms outstanding – they can be handed in to Breakfast club/Class/School office either at the end of the school day today or on Monday morning please.
I have attached a copy here in case any have gone missing
