  Hello Visitor,

Harvest Service

Please join us on Wednesday 4th October at 2pm in St Mary's Church.

The school will be collecting donations of non-perishable food items for the church's nominated charity, the Daylight Centre. These should be sent into school with your child on the day of the Harvest Service. Many thanks in advance of your support. 

Children from Reception to Year 6 will be sharing their Harvest work and singing songs (Nursery children will remain in school during the service).

All are welcome at the service - we hope to see you there!

Football Competition 

Our Year 3/4 football team took part in the Wollaston Cluster competition this week. With some excellent teamwork, our footballers finished a very creditable 3rd place and so very well done to our team.

FOGS AGM will be held on Thursday 2nd November at 7pm in school.

The AGM is an opportunity for parents, new and old to find out more about FOGS and the great work they do. All parents are automatically members of FOGS but there are also committee roles that carry more responsibility. General committee member roles are also available. Volunteering at events is equally as important. If you are interested in becoming involved, please do come along to the AGM. 

More details to follow directly from FOGS.


Cases of Covid are on the rise and so this is a timely reminder of the NHS guidance:

You are no longer required to do a COVID-19 rapid lateral flow test if you have symptoms.

But if you or your child have tested positive for COVID-19:

  • try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day the test was taken if you or your child are under 18 years old – children and young people tend to be infectious to other people for less time than adults
  • try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days after the day you took your test if you are 18 years old or over

For example, if you child tests positive for Covid on Monday, they should be kept off school on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thurday before returning on Friday if they are well enough.

In line with the above guidance, adults who test positive should not come onto the school site for 5 days after the day they took the positive test.

Thank you for your cooperation with this - any questions, please feel free to contact school.
