Welcome to our school website - please come in and take a look around. Do you know our four school values? They are respect, curiosity, kindness and determination.
Thank you for flexibility and understanding following the announcement of a change to the last day of this term. It's important to reiterate that we may still need to be in contact with you during the first week of the Christmas holidays, to inform you of confirmed COVID cases in our school community - we will be writing a letter to you next week with more detail about this. In the meantime, we are busy preparing for the final week of term with the children, and this newsletter contains information and announcements about Christmas Jumper Day, our family carol event on Zoom, our reverse advent collection, an update from the PTFA and a look inside the school at our Christmas decorations.
Christmas Jumper Day - Thursday 17th December 2020
We have a new date for our Christmas Jumper Day! It’s time to dig out your favourite Christmas Jumper! On Thursday 17th December, we will be supporting Save the Children with their annual Christmas Jumper day. Children can wear a colourful or Christmas themed jumper alongside their normal school uniform. You will be able to make a donation through the school Gateway (or you can make a cash donation if you prefer). We look forward to seeing your colourful Christmas woollies. It's fine if you don't want to take part - children can wear a school jumper as normal if they prefer. If your family does not celebrate Christmas, your child could wear a different jumper or top of their choosing.
Carols in the Kitchen!
Every year we get together and sing carols - normally it's "Carols in the Park". However this year we would like to invite you to sing from your kitchen, living room, or anywhere you like. Join us on Zoom at 5:00pm on Thursday 17th December to see this term out in style. Click here for the link! We will send out carol words by email next week.
Thank you for the donations we have already received for the Victoria Park Baptist Food Bank as part of our "reverse advent" collection. We will continue to collect items next week, so please donate if you can. We will drop off the items on Friday next week. You can donate:
