Dear Parent/Guardian,

Happy New Year from everyone at North Marston School. We hope you had a lovely break.


Many thanks to the PTA and everyone who helped out with the events before Christmas; it was lovely to see so many people enjoying themselves. Also thank you to the PTA who paid for the selection boxes which the children received from Santa. The money raised from the bazaar, the discos and the 100 squares at the production, will go towards the new phonics reading books which have been bought for use in school. We are continuing our 3D printing CAD project with years 3 and 4 this term, and money raised by the PTA will help to cover the costs of this project.

Celebration assembly

Our celebration assemblies start again this Friday at 2.40pm. We have a crèche for younger children to attend so that they don’t disturb the worship time. Everyone is welcome to join us. The children from each class will share some of their current learning, the dates for this are 10/1-Y3+4, 17/1-Y1+2, 24/1-YR, 31/1- Y5+6, 7/2- Forest school, 14/2- Young carers


Can you please ensure that your child comes to school in the correct uniform. The Bucks Schoolwear shop has now opened its new premises and we also sell second hand uniform which costs £1 per item. Black, navy or white socks or tights and black or navy shoes are required, and the only jewellery allowed is a plain watch and small stud earrings. Hair should be tied back with simple elastics or hairbands. Please can you also ensure that your child has warm outdoor wear, as they will go out to play in most weather.

Parents meeting

On Monday 10th February we will be holding an information evening for parents about how to hear your child read effectively and develop a love of reading. This is for all age groups.

Open Evenings

Following feedback from parents last year we have again decided to offer appointment times at the open evenings in the spring term. These will be held on Monday 16th March and Tuesday 17th March. More details will follow nearer the time. Your child will bring home a full individual report on Friday 6th March prior to the open evenings.

Please note we have pupils in school with nut allergies. Please avoid sending nuts or nut products into school or in lunch boxes.
