Uniform Reminder 

It has been lovely to see the children in their smart uniform, as the new year begins. However, we have noticed a considerable number of children wearing white or multi-coloured trainers. Please can we remind you that school shoes/trainers must be plain black. 

Police Visit 

As you may be aware, we work closely with our local police team, from friendly visits in Nursery and Reception to special workshops in KS2. 

Many of our children enjoy 'playing out' after school and on weekends, and it's wonderful to see the children getting fresh air and excercise and utilising the new equipment that have recently been installed in the community - however sometimes it can be difficult for children to make sensible choices, and this can put them at risk. 

On Thursday 11th December, a special team from Avon and Somerset Police will be visiting us for a special assembly, to talk to children about making the right choices and staying safe whilst out and about. 

We would like to ask parents to talk to their children about this assembly as we are sure you'll agree that it's important for all of us to work together to keep our children safe. 


It's always been said, that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it's true! Especially for children who spend their days learning and being active in the playground. 

Children who are hungry can struggle to concentrate, so making sure they eat breakfast before the school day is imperative to ensuring they benefit fully from their time here. 

Eating a good breakfast in the morning wakes up the brain, improves concentration, reduces irritability and gives a child a stable routine for the rest of the day. 

As you know, we run a school Breakfast Club from 8am each day which offers children a variety of food options - toast with different toppings, a choice of cereal, and starting next term we will be offering beans on toast each Wednesday! Children also get the opportunity to socialise with their friends in a relaxing and calm atmosphere before the school day begins. 

Breakfast Club costs just £1 for children in Reception-Year 6. Nursery children are welcome to attend for a charge of £3.50 however places are limited. 

Please be reminded however that breakfast is only served until 8.20am, and children arriving after this time will miss the opportunity to receive breakfast.

Absences for Illness 

As is usual for this time of year, with the cold weather comes germs and we understand that sometimes children are too ill to attend school. 

However we recommend looking at the following guidance if you are unsure about whether your child is well enough to come in: 

Should I keep my child off school? 

Please be reminded that school always has a stock of Calpol, and can administer medication to pupils should they feel a little under the weather. Minor colds and coughs are normal childhood illnesses and should not be reasons to keep children away from school. 

Please also be reminded that whilst children are welcome at school with minor illnesses, we cannot have them in school if they have suffered sickness or diarrhoea. Children should stay off of school and not return until there has been 48 hours since the last episode of illness. 

There may be circumstances that we ask for medical evidence in order for us to authorise your child's absence - this may happen if the absence is for an extended period of time, or if there is a pattern of repeated illness, or if their attendance is below 92% due to other absences.  If medical evidence is not provided, this may be recorded as an unauthorised absence which may result in a penalty notice (fine)
