Dear Parents,

Welcome back

A very warm welcome back to a new term at school. We are welcoming 17 new children into our Reception Year, and 1 child into Year 4; we are delighted with how well they have already settled. Our Year 6 children are working hard to make our Reception children feel especially welcome and are supporting them in their ‘buddy’ role. We look forward to working with all our new families.

Our School Ethos and Values – ‘Developing the Whole Child’

As a Church of England Aided School our Christian values are very important to our school community and underpin how we behave towards one another.

This half term we are focussing on the Christian value of ‘ Friendship’.

Open 2 All Service St Mary’s Church , Sunday 10th September 3pm

Rev Yvonne invites everyone to this child friendly service, with activities for children and refreshments afterwards. We will be praying especially for our new school year. Please bring your school bag to be blessed during the service.

Staff in school

In addition to our regular teachers and teaching assistants, Mrs Moodie and Mrs Wright continue to provide regular supply cover. Our PE lessons and sports clubs are supported by Richmond Secondary School staff and specialist sports coaches. Class music lessons and string and piano teaching are delivered by Mrs Jameson who is also a fully qualified primary school teacher. Mr Waters from North Yorkshire Music Service teaches flute.

Special Mentions Assembly  and  Newsletter

We have Special Mentions Assembly at 3pm every Friday and all parents/carers are welcome to join us for this in the school hall. It is an opportunity to hear more about what your child has been learning and an opportunity to celebrate their achievements and share in the success of others. Children may bring in certificates and awards achieved outside school to share with us. This newsletter is sent out every Friday and uploaded onto the school website. If you would like to receive the newsletter by email please send an email to the admin address above.

Class letters and topic information

All the children have class letters from their teachers telling you more about the topics they will be studying this term. Homework, across school will go home on a Friday to be returned the following Wednesday.

Parent pay and School lunches

If your child has moved into Year 3 you will now need to pay for their lunches, either online with Parent pay or via cheque/cash to the office, £10.50 per week. The government continues to fund lunches for infant children (until end of Y2).

If you want to change your lunch arrangements the kitchen/office needs a week’s notice as fresh food is ordered in advance. Please speak to the office if you think your child may qualify for free school lunches. Parent pay accounts must stay in credit.

Milk and Snacks

Children in Classes 1 and 2 receive free fruit each day, funded nationally. Children under 5 receive free milk. Other children in school may also have milk daily at a small cost through Cool Milk. Register online at All children have access to water fountains; they may bring water bottles and healthy snacks for break times (fresh, dried fruit, cereal bars).

Fruity Friday 30p The children run a healthy fruit stall each Friday where for 30p all children can buy a selection of fruit.

Peanut Allergies We do have children in school with peanut allergies. Please do not send your child to school with peanut butter in sandwiches or snacks.
