A representative from House of Bread in Stafford is coming into school on Monday to join us for assembly and receive our donation of £200 which was raised on the day of the visit from The Mayor of Stafford and the community coffee morning.

Computer Table

Has anyone got a spare computer table/desk for us to use in Class 2 which you no longer need? If so please contact the school office.

Parent’s Evening

Letters have been sent home about parent’s evening which is taking place on Wednesday 28th March. Please return the reply slips to the class teachers so that a time slot can be allocated.

School Communications

The whole school is moving towards using the Class Dojo system for communicating with parents from now on. Class Dojo messages will be sent from class teachers and the school office and messages can be sent directly to teachers or the school office. Please ensure that you have registered to receive Class Dojos and check your notifications/messages. The school will no longer be sending texts to parents but communications can also still be made by phone, letter or email.

Decorate An Easter Egg

As part of our Easter festivities, we would like all pupils to decorate a hard boiled egg(s) and bring them into school on Monday 26th March.

Easter Service

Please note the Easter Service will take place at 2 pm on Thursday 29th March in St. Editha’s Church.

Holidays In School Time

We would like to remind parents that following the letter from Staffordshire County Council that was sent out in September, the changes to the rules relating to penalty notices for absence from school/lateness have now changed and we now have to inform the Council of any period of un-authorised leave and they are likely to issue penalty notices. If you would like another copy of the letter please contact the school office.
