It is very important that it is signed and returned to school as soon as possible, there are still many outstanding forms not back in school.

School Lottery

Winners over the break were Mrs Bray and Mrs Groves.
The prize money has fallen slightly, as our number of supporters has dropped a little. This draw is open to everyone all over the country; it would be wonderful if you could ask friends or family if they would
like to join. As well as a guaranteed weekly school winner, there is also a chance of winning £25000 in the national draw every week. The more tickets we sell, the higher the prize money. If you have not yet bought your ticket, or your debit card payment has finished, the link to register is http://www.yourschoollottery.co.uk/lottery/school/altham-st-james-c-of-e-primary-school if you join in the Summer term there is a chance to win one of 5 £50 restaurant vouchers.
Please note, if you are subscribed to the School Lottery we do not expect you to contribute to school funds. Thank you.
