These can be found on their website nspcc.org.uk/pants. Your child may naturally have some questions. There is help and support on how to answer these questions on the website as well as further information and resources. They are also there if you ever need to talk.

World Book Day – Thursday 7th March
We will be celebrating World Book Day in school on Thursday 7th March. The School Council has requested that the children come to school dressed as one of their favourite book characters to help us raise money for some new Guided Reading books. Please do not feel this has to be an expensive bought outfit as there are many characters that wear normal children’s clothes e.g. Danny the Champion of the World or Tracey Beaker. School Council have suggested that a donation of £1 per child could be made.
To help encourage the children to widen their reading diet we are also going to hold a book swap on that day. We would like each child to bring in a book that they have already read, which is still in a good condition, that they would be happy to swap. This book should be appropriate to their own age range. During the day the children will have a chance to pick a new book to bring home with them.

Music Tuition
Music tuition fees were due 1st October. Fees are £82.
Please ensure these are paid either on Parentpay, or if you would prefer via the school office.
Please remember if you wish to cancel your child’s music tuition at any time you need to give us a half terms’ notice.
