Red Nose Day – Friday 24 March 2017

This Friday is Red Nose Day (Comic Relief).  It is the day, every two years, when people across the land can get together and do something funny for money at home, school and work.

Comic Relief is a major charity based in the UK since 1988.  It spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living tough lives across the UK and Africa.

The Class and School Councils have voted for pupils and staff to hold a  “wear it red day” for a voluntary contribution of £1.00.

We hope that everyone will  join in and raise money for this important cause.

Food Hygiene

Dear Parents/ Carers,

We have been reviewing at our Food Hygiene procedures in school to ensure that we are maintaining our food hygiene standards.

As always, we endeavour to store pupil’s packed lunches in a cool environment in school, whenever possible.

It would be extremely helpful if parents could consider sending their child’s packed lunch in a cool bag type lunch bag (as these often have a freeze block inside.)

Alternatively, mini freeze blocks can be purchased quite reasonably and it would be helpful if parents could consider purchasing and using these in their child’s current lunch box, this will then ensure that the food inside is kept fresh and at a suitable temperature, safe temperature.

Thank you,

Laura Clarke

Head Teacher

We look forward to welcoming parents and sharing progress with you.
