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.

Summer concert costumes

Here is a list of the costumes we would like children to wear for the summer concert:

Early Years  anything bright coloured and sensible footwear (pumps or trainers)
Year 1  anything tropical/ floral or a bright bold colour
Year 2  jungle colours or animal patterns from the jungle
Year 3  school uniform
Year 4  black shorts or tracksuit bottoms or leggings and brightly coloured/summery T shirts  
Year 5  anything that is inspired by Elton John or anything glittery
Year 6  60s inspired or anything colourful

The weather forecast is a bit hit and miss next week. We are still planning on going ahead with the Summer Concert, but please watch out for text message updates if the weather is poor on Monday.

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.

ParentPay accounts

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.
