Dear Parent/Guardian,

Parents’ meeting

On Thursday 21st November, Fiona Rosenberg will run a session for parents on child anxiety and mental health. A letter with more details has already been sent out and we would appreciate it if you would email or return the slip if you are planning to attend. There is also an opportunity to indicate any areas which you would like her to cover if possible.

Children in Need

On Friday 15th November the children are invited to come to school in mufti clothes, preferably following a spotty theme, and bring a suggested contribution of at least £1 to support the Children in Need charity.

Woodwind lessons

Rob Clarke is a specialist music teacher who comes into school to teach individual woodwind lessons.  He offers teaching for all woodwind instruments for children in KS2 and also recorder lessons for Y2 children. If you are interested in any of these please contact the school office for more information.

Contact information

If any of your contact details, such as mobile number, email address or other emergency contacts, change, please remember to let us know.

Skills and help

Every now and again we need a bit of specialist help or general manpower support. If you have any professional skills, particularly involving premises, and are willing to help us out on the odd occasion, please could you give your details to Donna or Mandy in the office.

Celebration Assembly

Everyone is welcome to attend our celebration assemblies, where we celebrate children’s successes both in and out of the classroom. Each class will take it in turns to share some of their learning. This will be on Friday afternoons at 2.40pm-3.00pm.The dates on which the classes will be sharing their learning are; 15/11- Y2, 22/11-Y1, 29/11-YR, 6/12-Y5 and 6, 13/12- YR,1,2 production. Please remember that this is the children’s time of worship for the day and we ask you to respect that. There is a crèche available for younger children in the YR classroom to ensure that the children can be heard as they share their hard work with everyone.


Sadly the PTA has had to cancel the 80s disco. We are now making plans for the Christmas Bazaar which will run after school this year on Thursday 19th December. We hope it will be fun and have the familiar stalls but just be at a different time. There will be more information coming out soon.

Playground equipment

The trim trail equipment on the playground is for the use of the school children at playtimes. Please be aware that the school cannot be responsible for any child using the equipment before or after school times.

Bucks Schoolwear Shop

The shop has reopened at their new premises at Unit 11, Aylesbury Vale Industrial Estate, Southern Road, Aylesbury. HP19 9EW on Monday 4th November

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.

End of day

Again, please can I ask that you do not park around the back of the church and up to school and block the bus route. The bus driver is finding it very difficult to access the school in order to collect the bus children safely.
