Newsletter

Please click here for our final newsletter for the Spring Term! Please take time to read it – there are some dates for your diary for the Summer Term.

We wish all our families a restful holiday and look forward to seeing children back in school on Wednesday 19 April.

Comic Relief and Mud Run

We are looking forward to supporting Comic Relief tomorrow!

Children are invited to come to school dressed in something red as part of their uniform or sports kit with something red to show their support. This year we are accepting contributions electronically through the SchoolGateway. (Please come and speak with us if you are experiencing any difficulties.)

Mrs Johnson will be hosting a ‘mud run’ after school on the school field. Parents are responsible for their children during this event.  Children will need to wear trainers and sports kit. The event is free to enter, but we would welcome a donation towards the charity. The Garden Fields PTA will be selling refreshments and snacks. There is no need to book – just come along and join in the fun! (Children may need to have a change of clothes – they can get very muddy!)

New Dinner Menu

Children will be bringing home a copy of the Summer/Autumn 2017 dinner menu. Please let us know if you would like to change your child’s meal pattern as a result of the change.
Meals for children in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 continue to be free. School meals will cost £2.35 per day from 18 April.

PTA – Events Coming Up!

The PTA continues to work hard to raise funds for our school. Events coming up include the Mothers Day Sale (Thursday), Mud Run and Y1-6 Film Night (Friday) and EYFS Easter Egg Hunt (Monday).
None of these events are possible without the support of our families. Any contribution including volunteering (CLICK HERE), bringing in cakes or simply allowing your child to participate is welcome and appreciated!
Further details can be found on the school calendar.
