Dear Parent/Guardian,

Celebration certificates

We would like to congratulate the following children for demonstrating our school values of “compassion”, “curiosity” and “cooperation”, and receiving the certificates last week.

 YR-Jack O, Y1-Emelia, Y2-Jake, Y3-Cara, Y4-Phoebe, Y5-Lucinda, Y6-Luis.

Amazon Wish List

We have added a few more items to the wish list on Amazon of books and resources which we are in need of. Should you wish to, you can purchase some resources for the school. We would be really grateful for any help you feel you could give. Please use the link

A big thank you for the items which we have already received.


If you wish to buy raffle tickets for the Christmas hampers please send money to the school office in a named envelope and the tickets will be sent home in due course. Tickets cost £2 per strip and 3 strips for £5. The draw will be made on 16th December.


The children have all designed their own calendars which are on sale for £1.50 each. You can order these through parentpay. Please state how many you would like and we will make them and send them home , last orders on Monday 14th December!

Christmas activities

We are obviously limited to the activities and celebrations which we will be able to have this year, but we want the children to be able to celebrate and have fun. After consulting with School Council, we are planning some activities which they will be able to do during the last week of term. They have requested a Christmas Jumper Day on Wednesday so please send them in in Christmas Jumper mufti and a contribution of £1.

End of term

The last day at school will be Thursday 17th December, with a remote learning day on Friday 18th.

After school clubs

There are a number of after school clubs running in the spring term. Booking links have been sent out should you wish for your child to participate. These clubs are running following covid protocols and risk assessments have been drawn up by each provider.

Easy Fundraising

Please remember that if you are ordering online many companies will donate a percentage of the cost to our school if you go through Easyfundraising. It is at no cost to you but benefits the school. Go to and register to donate to North Marston C E School

Food allergies

Please be mindful that we have children in school with nut allergies. We ask that you do not put items with nuts or nut products into lunchboxes. Any break time snack which KS2 children bring must be fresh fruit or vegetables.

Best Wishes for a safe and Happy Christmas,
