school news 


Please be reminded that children should only be wearing CTK PE kits into school for their PE lessons (white t-shirt and black shorts/joggers/leggings). They should not be wearing branded tracksuits or other gym wear. If your child does not have the appropriate kit, please send them in to school in their normal school uniform. 

If you would like to order your child a PE kit with the school logo on, you can contact our uniform supplier at 0117 963 6669  / info@SHClothing.co.uk 

Strike Action - Wednesday 1st February 

We can confirm  that we do intend to open for certain classes, due to expected adequate staffing. The classes that we currently expect to open as normal are:

For classes not listed above (Nursery, Year 5 and Year 6),  we can not currently confirm if those classes will be closed or not. Because of this, we do advise that parents begin to make arrangements for their children to not be in school on this day. It is possible that the situation could change and we will keep you updated between now and Wednesday 1st February.

Where classes are expected to be closed, we will be able to offer a small number of places following the government's guidance on ‘Vulnerable Children and Young People’. In these small number of cases we will contact parents directly over the next two days. A link to the criteria set can be found here - See Annex A - Vulnerable Children and young People

Contacting Chill Time Klub

If you have a child attending Chill Klub and need to speak to a member of staff after 4pm, we now have a dedicated phone line that parents can use. You can dial the main school number and press 3 to be put through to Chill Time. Please be aware this line should only be used if you need to contact staff as a matter of urgency and should not be used for general calls when there is no one available in the office. 

Reception Reading Sessions 

A big thank you to all of the parents who attended our first reading session with Reception Class this week - we had a great turn out and it was wonderful to see so many parents being involved with their child's learning. 

If you missed this week's sessions, don't worry! The sessions will be running every Wednesday from 8.40-9.00am and all parents of children in Reception Class are welcome to attend. We hope to see even more parents next week! 

Year 5/6 Boys Football 

The 5/6 boys played their final round of matches on Thursday. They played as a team against some very tough opponents, showcasing their skills. Well played boys! Special mention to Kalvin in Year 5 who supported and encouraged all of his teammates, and Zak in Year 5 who scored his first ever CTK goal!  

Next week, the girls will have the opportunity to play competitive games against other schools so keep an eye out for letters home!

Please be reminded that the school day begins at 8.50am and doors are open to pupils from 8.40am. If your child arrives after 9.00am they will received a late mark for the day.
