Goodbye and Thank you
This summer we say goodbye and thank you to Mrs Barker and Mrs Powles. Mrs Barker has led our Early years for 6 years and has worked hard to provide an effective, caring learning environment for our children.
Mrs Powles has worked as a lunchtime supervisor for an incredible 34 years. She has cared for thousands of children in this time making sure they eat well and are safe. What an amazing legacy to leave behind.
We offer them our heartfelt thanks and wish them every happiness for their next adventure.

Cleckheaton Foodbank Week
Starting on Monday 10th July we are launching our food bank week when we will be taking donations for Cleckheaton Foodbank. You can bring your donation to the Summer Concert or drop it off at the gate at the beginning, or end of the day. We will then send all donations to the food bank on Friday 14th July.
School Uniform Donations
Thank you to all who have donated school uniform – If you are able to donate clean uniform in good condition, we would be very grateful. We are currently short of KS1 and 2 school cardigans, KS1 school jumpers and school summer dresses. Our Uniform Bank offers good quality uniform free to children in school. Thank you for your help.
For those pupils going to Robinwood the next payment of £40 is due by the 25th June.
For those pupils going to London the next payment of £60 is due by the 30th June.
Please make sure these payments are made in time as they are linked to our payment deadlines with the companies organising the trips. Thank you.
It is essential that you make every effort to clear your Parent Pay accounts for Breakfast Club, Tea Time Club, Nursery and lunches. From September payments for Tea Time Club and Breakfast Club must be made prior to your child staying. Therefore, all accounts need to be settled before the end of the summer holidays. If you have questions regarding this, please speak to school.
