Dear Parents,

This week really has seen Autumn set in. Les, our caretaker, is being kept very busy keeping the site clear of slippery leaves but what a beautiful sight the trees are as their colours turn to amber and gold.

Next week is our annual Anti-bullying week. Miss Latter, our PSHCE leader, tells us more:

This year’s theme is 'Change Starts With Us!' We want the children to understand the importance of promoting these behaviours and celebrating how amazing it is to be in school without bullying. 

The children will be having session in their classes about how us making small, simple changes, we can break this cycle and create a safe environment for everyone. Together we can challenge bullying. Change starts with a conversation. It starts with checking in. It starts with working together. Change starts here. Change starts now. Change starts with us.

Tuesday the 12th November as Odd Sock Day and we are inviting all  of the children to come into school wearing odd socks. Odd Socks Day encourages children to wear a pair of odd socks to celebrate individuality and allow them to express themselves by showing how unique everyone is. 

If you wish to join us as we share our learning, please do sign up for our Anti-bullying assembly on Friday morning at 9 a.m.

On Thursday morning, we also have an open Worship and Praise session so you can also sign up for this at the office.

A note from Mrs Hard:

Thank you to those parents who ordered books from the scholastic book fair. Your books will be ready to collect from the school office from Monday. As a result, I have been able to purchase £50 worth of new books for the school library.  The library is open Tuesday lunchtime and after school. We would love to open it every day after school but need parent volunteers to help. If you can spare 15 mins after pick up to ‘man the scanner’ please do let Sharon or myself know.


And finally, we will close our collection for Hospice in the Weald in memory of Declan Martin next week. Please do drop in any donations in a clearly marked envelope if you wish to contribute to the school collection.


Kind regards,


Julie Burton
