Kingspan ‘Give and Gain Day’

Many thanks to all the volunteers on the Kingspan Day.  I hope you agree we have gained a lot of lovely things for our children.  What an amazing company Kingspan is to be so generous with their money and time!!!  There remains more work to do in the wildlife area and ongoing maintenance.  We really need a group of willing volunteers to do a few hours every now and then.  For example to lay membrane and gravel between the flags to keep the nettles away or to paint the railings.  If you would like to join the fun as we had on Kingspan day please just let one of the teachers know or send us a text.



The consultation on our school becoming a church school becomes live on Thursday 26th September and runs until 11th November.  The Governing Body would very much appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to respond to the consultation to show the County Council that the community is aware of and actively involved in the next stage of securing our future.

Crisp packets

The eco committee are collecting crisp packets for Chester Zoo elephants. If you have any crisp packets please don’t throw them away in your home bin, please bring them to school.

There is a big white bag in the school hall and that is where you will put them if you bring them in. This is a very important way to help Chester Zoo’s elephants find a way to make them better from the illness they are getting.

We hope you understand.

Thank you.


Uniform Exchange

The eco committee would like to encourage uniforms to be re-used until they have had their full wear.  The following clothes have been donated.  If they are your size please come and help yourself.  If you have any to donate please give to Mrs Howarth.

Boys blue trousers age 7-8 (3 pairs)

Boys blue shorts age 7-8 (2 pairs)

School sweatshirt age 7-8

Names on uniform and PE kits PLEASE

No nursery on Wednesday 23rd October due to the rest of the class on a full day trip.  We will offer back the time later in the year.



School Dinners & dealing with debts

It is very important that you keep on top of any debts in school lunches.  We don’t like to see anyone build up large debts so the limit is 1 week’s worth - £11.25.  After this amount you will be asked to provide sandwiches from home until the debt is cleared and the next week’s dinners are paid for in advance.    It is a parent’s duty to arrange food for their children.
