Open Afternoon for Prospective Reception Parents September 2019 (reminder from last week)

This meeting is planned for 2pm on Tuesday October 16th 2018 at the school and is for parents who are considering a reception place in September 2019 for their child.

Class Topic Letters

Please view your child/children’s class topic letter on the website. These letters outline the main areas of learning over the coming Autumn Term and provide ideas for supporting your child’s learning at home. Furthermore details of the homework expectations for the year and the days your child has PE are provided. They can be found on the website under the ‘Topic Letters’ tab in the ‘Parents’ section. You will also find the outline of the Religious Education topics covered this term on a separate newsletter.

School Dinners for Year 3 children (reminder from last week)

 Can I remind all parents that from Year 3 upwards, school dinners do need to be paid for unless you are in receipt of Free School Meals. The cost is currently £2 per day and this can be paid by cash/cheque in school or you can open an online account at (click Payments at the top of the home page and follow the direction from there).

Reception Parents

Parents with children in the reception are invited into the school from 5.30pm next week to meet with the reception team and learn a little of how to help your child with reading. Notices are out to remind everyone in the reception class area.

Well done Jemma

Forest School Open Day - Saturday 22 September 2018, 8.30am to 1.30pm

We would be grateful if parents could be reminded that our Open Day is taking place on Saturday, 22 September and if parents wish to attend they should book through the School website:

Open Day gives families the opportunity to see Forest in action. Our pupils will be busy in classrooms, drama rehearsals, playing sport, acting as tour guides and performing in musical ensembles. Visitors will also have the opportunity to speak informally to staff and pupils.


Have a restful weekend
