Happy New Year!

Happy  New Year and welcome back to an exciting new term; we hope you all had an enjoyable and restful break.  We are now the UK City of Culture and throughout this year the children will be learning about their city through their class topics as well as taking part in events with partner schools.  Dates of upcoming events will be posted on the website and on the back of the newsletter.

PE Kit

All children must have the correct PE kit for dance, gymnastics and PE.  Children who do not bring their own PE kit will have to wear school PE kit. 

Children need:

· Shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms

· T-shirt (long or short sleeved), sweatshirt or hoodie is optional in the cold weather.

· Trainers or sandshoes for outdoor PE.

Please be aware that children will continue to do outdoor PE in the cold weather, they are allowed to wear their coats during these lessons.

All jewellery must be removed for PE, dance and gymnastics.

Please see overleaf for the PE timetable.

School Uniform

Our school uniform is:

· Grey or red jumper or sweatshirt

· White polo shirt

· Grey or black trousers, skirt or pinafore

· Checked summer dress

· Flat shoes or trainers

The following items are available from the office

· School sweatshirt

· School cardigan

· School fleece

· School coat

· Book bag

Jewellery must not be worn for school with the exception of watches, stud earrings and articles of faith.

Please ensure children are wearing warm clothing for the cold weather.


Regular attendance at school is essential for children to make the most of their learning potential; children who attend school more achieve better than those who attend less.  Apart from very exceptional circumstances children’s attendance should be no lower than 96% over the year; this means children should miss no more than 7.5 days of school in any one year.  If your child’s attendance is falling below 96% you will be contacted by the school to make you aware of this and offer support if needed.  Parents whose children’s attendance is consistently poor will be asked to provide proof of sickness absence in order to authorise any absence.  If a child has a substantial number of unauthorised  absences parents may be fined.
