Dear Parents/carers

Pancake Day

Pancake Day went down a treat this morning! Here are some comments from the children:

Leo – “This pancake is amazing you know!”

Laelia -” This is the first time I’ve had a pancake with sugar and lemon and its perfect!”

Reina enjoyed hers so much she asked if there was any more and gave a big thumbs up!

Take a look on the school Facebook page to see the children tucking in!

Activity Pack in the holidays

Please see below a link for an activity pack shared by Kirklees. If you follow the link you will see a range of activities your child could do over the holidays.

Mother’s Day

With Mother’s Day just around the corner would you like to buy a loved one a gift?

If so we have the perfect thing for you. Children in gardening club have been busy planting a variety of bulbs in lovely pots ready for your loved ones! The children will bring this home in a personalised bag which they have decorated.  Live on parent pay until the 26th February priced at £3.50!

Concerns about measles

If you are worried about your child having the measles vaccination, or about the symptoms of measles, please click on the link below:

PE Uniform

Please can I remind you that all children need to wear their PE uniform on PE days. Also it would be really useful if children did not wear earrings on these days as they have to be removed for the lesson. Thank you for your support in these matters.


Please can you keep an eye out on Parent Pay for any trips your child is going to be involved in. It is essential that we receive contributions so that the trip can go ahead. Please make every endeavour to pay any contributions on time. Failure to do so will mean trips are cancelled and children miss out on wonderful opportunities.

Year 4 children Bolton Abbey

The year 4 children are going to Bolton Abbey on Tuesday 5 March 2024. Cost of the trip is £21.00. Three instalments have been set up: £7.00 by 31/10/23, the next £7.00 by 30/11/23 and final instalment by 31/01/24. Again see original letter for more information. 

Outdoor kit donation:

If you have any size 12 wellies or waterproofs that could be donated to school we would really appreciate it. These would support our children who are gardening in the poorer weather.


Please look at your Parent Pay account and clear any outstanding payments. If there are any debts you run the risk of not being able to access school lunches, breakfast club and tea time club.


We are heading into the time of year when there can be lots of bugs around. This list helps families know which illnesses and conditions require pupils to stay at home and when they can come to school. However if you have any questions please contact school.

Coffee Morning:

All welcome to our informal Coffee /Tea mornings (drink and natter). These are held every Tuesday after dropping your children off at school. Under school age children welcome too as there are lots of toys for them to play with. 

Please join us in the Children’s Centre with Mrs Boyle suppling the drinks and biscuits.  

New phone number?

If you have a new phone number, or if there is a change in contact details, please contact school to update us.
