Please remember that we are a nut free school, so children should not have nuts as part of their morning
snack or packed lunch. Many thanks for your support with this matter.
 
Christmas Cards
This year, instead of sending each other Christmas cards, staff will be making donations to the Sadie Bristow
Foundation. We will still have a post box for the children to send cards to one another, but will also have a
giant Christmas card display for children and staff to write their messages to one another. If you would like to
make a donation to the Sadie Bristow Foundation instead of sending individual cards, these donations should
be brought to the school office in a clearly labelled envelope.
Please can we also ask that small gifts are not included in any Christmas cards as this has caused a few issues
in the past when they have been left behind or misplaced. Thank you.
 
Now that the weather has turned colder, please ensure your child is sent to school with appropriate clothing for outdoor break times, all of which needs to be named clearly.
