CTK: A year in review
We have had another wonderful year at School of Christ the King, and it has been a pleasure teaching and growing with each and every one of our pupils.
This year the children have had the opportunity to take part in lots of exciting experiences - from local stream walks to visits to Roman settlements in Wales - and we look forward to being able to offer many more experiences like these next year.
As well as our off site visits, we've seen some fantastic learning within school, and are incredibly proud of the acheivements and the progress the children have made this year and we are sure they will continue to do us proud as we move forward into next academic year.
We would like to say a big thank you to all of our families and members of the community who have continued to support us this year, we look forward to building these relationships further into next academic year.
Please enjoy our CTK Highlights 22/23 as we wish you a happy and safe summer break...
Year 5/6 Camp - September 2023
As you know, Year 5 and 6 will be heading off to Deanfield camp on the first day back. Please take note of the following reminders:
All payments need to be made by Friday 25th August
Children will NOT need a packed lunch as they will arrive at camp during the late morning and lunch will be provided.
Mrs Selway and Miss Morse will be in school on Wednesday 30th August for any parents who have last minute questions or queries
During the Summer Holidays, our lovely Year 3 TA Miss Newick will be getting married!!
This week, Year 3 class presented her with a beautfully crafted 'wedding cake!' which we're sure is just as beautiful as the real one will be!
We hope you'll join us in wishing her and her future husband all the very best for their big day, and we look forward to welcoming her back as Mrs Sims in September.
Change in School Day Timings - September 2023
When children return to school in September, our school day will be extended by 5 minutes every day.
Children will now finish at 3.20pm
Reminders for September
A few little reminders to all parents and carers for when we return to school in September...
Children return to school on Monday 4th September 2023 (excluding Reception Class children who will have already received their staggered start dates)
Please can parents ensure children are supervised until the gates/doors to school are opened. We have had many children in the last few weeks being dropped off for Breakfast Club before 8am and being left unattended. School cannot be responsible for children waiting around outside the school gates outside of school hours.
Could we also please remind parents that they should not be dropping children into the school car park for Breakfast Club. This is a high traffic area during that that time of the morning, and as it is not the designated entrance for Breakfast Club, staff are often unaware that children are there.
Please remember that as your child changes year group, their entrance/exit may have changed. Children in Reception, Year 1, Year 2 & Year 6 should enter and exit through the Main Reception doors - Children in Years 3,4 & 5 should come and go through the back car park gates.
If your child is moving into Year 3, they will no longer be entitled to Universal Free School Meals and will need to pay for school dinners. Meals are charged at £2.45 per meal and can be paid for via the School Gateway App. If you think your child should be entitled to Free School Meals, please apply over the summer break ready for September.
Mini Market & Fundraising
Thank you to everyone that supported our Year 6 class fundraising for through the Mini Market earlier this week, and to everyone who purchased raffle tickets to raise money for their Leavers Prom!
Mini Market raised nearly £500 pounds, and £130 was raised through the raffle. Well done to Harper G who won the Summer Bundle in the Prom Raffle and to Leela-Mai and Lilanna who won the Mini Market Raffles!!
