The space in front of the Infant School and Junior School’s gates are for entrance to the school site only. Do not use these as a dropping off area or for turning around. In the past week I have had to speak to one parent who blocked the entrance because they were being dropped off and another who was using it as a space to turn round. Please park up safely along Honey Lane and walk into the school site.
Well done to Rhys Brown (Mrs Raddon’s Class), Vincenzo Bergamino, Holly Morris, Charlie Santagata and Theodora Shiakallis (Miss Gibbs’s Class), Aaron Joseph, Lewis Clark, Jessica Carter, Lucy Phillips and Mert Ahmet (Miss Wood’s Class) who received Green cards this week.
Well done to Miss Biggs’s Class who had the best attendance last week.
Red Nose Day – Friday 15 March
To help raise money for Red Nose Day this year, your child can pay £1 to come in in a ‘Onesie’ or ‘Pyjamas’. On the day, Amber Brooks will be running a competition to guess the number of sweets in a jar. She will be charging 50p per guess. The winner will win the sweets.

Whole School Trip- 22 May 2013
Following the success of last year’s trip, I am pleased to announce the details of this year’s whole school trip to Colchester Zoo.
Date: Wednesday 22 May 2013
Time 8:30am to 5:00pm
Clothing Full school uniform (coat if cold and damp/sunhat if hot)
Food Packed lunch brought in school bag
The total cost of the trip is £3,381 (£16.33 per child). We have managed to secure some funding. Therefore, we are asking for every child to pay £10 towards the trip. If you have a problem with paying this, please arrange to speak to me.
This £10 includes the cost of the coach, entry to Colchester Zoo and workshop for each class led by a member of staff at Colchester Zoo. You may pay in one instalment of £10 or two instalments of £5.
Visit Essex Country Parks

First Aid Course
Following a request from a parent, Mrs Cromwell has organised a First Aid Course for parents between 10 and 11:30am on Wednesday 5 June. It will run for 4 weeks.
This is to remind children and parents that children should dismount from their bikes at the school gate and walk the bike into the bike shed.
Well done to the Football Team who won 3-0 against Holy Cross yesterday.
This is a reminder to all parents that the Outside Gym is designed for Junior School children only (7 years and over). It is parents’ responsibility to supervise their children before and after school and to ensure that anyone under 7 does not use the gym.
