Our school value this half term is ‘Thankfulness’ (Colossians 2:7)

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

 

As we approach the end of this first half term of the year, I would like to thank you all for your support in getting your children tested for COVID-19 when we have asked you to do so. Numbers of cases in school have stayed very low throughout this half term despite the easing of restrictions nationally as well as in school. We are very pleased to have been able to resume our Breakfast and after school clubs and I am particularly looking forward to the re-introduction of whole school face to face assemblies after half term!

 

Half Term

 

School closes at 2.45pm this Friday, 22nd October for half term and re-opens on Monday 1st November at 8.35am (with Breakfast Club starting at 7.45am). I hope you enjoy a lovely week with your children.

 

Remembrance Day Poppies

 

After half term we will be selling poppies in school to support the national ‘Poppy Appeal’. Please send 20p (minimum) if you would like your child to have a poppy to wear.

 

Blackburn Rovers – Football Camp

 

Blackburn Rovers Community Trust are running a football camp each day of the half term break next week. Each day starts at 9.00am (children can be dropped off from 8.30am) and finishes at 3.00pm. Children will receive football coaching from qualified and experienced Blackburn Rovers Community Trust coaches. The cost is £15 per day or £60 for the week. For more details please visit: www.rovers.co.uk/community

 

Class Photographs

 

Advance notice that the school photographer will be in school on Thursday, 4th November to take photographs of whole classes (not individual children or family groups). Please double check that your child is in full school uniform on that day.
