Dear Parents/Carers




Friday 1 December: Non-school uniform day

We will be holding a non-school uniform day in exchange for a gift to sell in the 'Secret Santa' room.  This can be brand new, or 'nearly new' in good condition.  Gifts should be suitable for children of all ages and grown-ups.  NO ALCOHOL PLEASE. If you are sending in food items such as chocolates, please ensure these do not contain nuts.

Donations of gifts need to be placed in the boxes by the Primary door on entry to school.


Friday 8 December: Primary Christmas Fair.

During Enterprise Week (Monday 4 – Friday 8 December) children will be making a variety of items for friends and family to buy at our Christmas Fair. Your child will be helping on their class stall, for the first 30 minutes (1.30pm – 2pm). Please come from 1.30pm to ensure the children can show you their best shop-keeper skills! 


Parents and carers may collect their child from their class stall from 2pm to enjoy the rest of the afternoon together.  Children may leave school with their parents/carers from 2.30pm., ensuring everyone is signed out of the premises.


Please inform your child’s taxi company if you are planning to attend and take your child home with you rather than in their usual mode of transport.
