Weekly Newsletter, 24 Mar

Dear Parents

BLP next week is interdependence.


School Dinners

Next week the menu will be week 1.

After the Easter break we will be on Week 1, please note on Tuesday 18 th April the dinner will be the Monday meal option. Also the choices may vary a little from the menus due to limited deliveries over the break. Thank you.


Lent Service

Next Thursday morning will be our Easter service where we will start the morning in church, a teacher will be at the Church gate from 8:50am. We will be joined by The Open the Book team; please stay and show your support if you are able. Tea and coffee will be available after the service when the children have left.
If your child will be having a school dinner on Thursday and doesn’t normally have a school dinner, could you please let them know on Wednesday? We will be asking for their Thursday choice on Wednesday in order to let the school kitchen know. Thank you.


Uniform (Tartan)

Could any further orders for the tartan uniform please be sent in on Monday, if possible, so that the delivery will be received before we break up for Summer? I have asked for a bigger sample to be sent and I will text when this arrives if that helps with measurements. Payment is not necessary until the order arrives. Thank you.


Keeping Children Safe Online (Monday March 27th 1:15 -3:15pm)

There are still places available for this if you wish to attend. Thank you.


Easter Lucky Square Draw

There are now 19 squares available in our Easter draw. The 1st prize for this draw is a £20 meal

voucher for The Griffins Head at Hapton. 2nd & 3rd prizes are family tickets (2 adults & 3 children) to the Great British Food Festival to be held at Stonyhurst College from 21 st – 23rd April.


School Swimming (Juniors)

The juniors will start swimming on a Friday morning after the Easter break. The first lesson will be on 21st April. Please ensure your child has their swimming kit every Friday. Also if you would like your child to be able to wear goggles please complete the ‘goggles’ form, available in the school office.
Thank you.


Free School Meals

Is your child entitled to free school meals?
Are you aware funding for each child registered and entitled to FSM attracts a pupil premium of £1300 for school? This in turn could mean better resources and more teaching support for your child. Please see the attached letter and if you require an application form ask at the office. Thank you.


School Lottery

Please let us have your reply slip regarding interest in the school lottery as soon as possible. Thank you.


Financial Year End

As we are approaching our school financial year end, Mrs Kenyon would be extremely grateful if all outstanding balances for dinner money, guitar lessons etc. could be paid up to date where ever possible. Thank you.


Bouncy Balls

We are now fully stocked again with the 25p bouncy balls.
