Please see attached information from Maurice Chandler Sports Centre for half term activities available to children.
We have a new online payment system through Shropshire Council for parents to make payments from their bank cards or by PayPal directly to us.
Payments can be made for school dinners, visits, fundraising events, wraparound care………virtually anything we ask for payments for!
Every family should receive letters today with instructions on how to use the system (instructions also attached to this page) along with each child’s unique payment reference.
We hope parents find this a valuable system. However if you have any queries or problems using the system please contact a member of the office staff or use the ‘contact us’ tab on the council pages or the council telephone number for additional help out of normal school hours.Parent 4 Schools (P4S) Parent User Guide
As the winning House this half term, Poplar has a Jeans and Jumper day tomorrow.
Well done to this half term’s star pupils!
Our school has undergone ‘Healthy School’ accreditation. However we have noticed that some children are increasingly bringing in chocolate and crisps for break times. All pupils in Nursery, Hawkstone & Caradoc classes are provided with a variety of free fruit on a daily basis and should therefore not need to bring in any snacks to eat at break time. KS2 pupils should only be bringing in fruit, veg, raisins etc. if they require a snack at break time. Only water should be brought into school in drinks bottles, not juice or squash.
Due to increased awareness with regards to severe allergic reactions, pupils should not be bringing nuts into school at all.
Due to the various Christmas preparations that are now underway in school, plus the not so great weather, there will be no more Forest School sessions for year 1 pupils on a Wednesday afternoon for the rest of this term. So please feel free to take home their kits and give them a well deserved wash over the Christmas break!!!
Here, with their certificates, are our Year 5 & 6 pupils who represented the school in a recent Quick Sticks Hockey Competition at Maurice Chandler Sports Centre. We have recently used some of our Sports Funding to purchase new hockey equipment so the children can continue to play and build on their new skills.
As we fast approach the end of term which house will win the non-school uniform day?
Here’s the scores so far:
Here are this week’s Reading and Red Certificate winners along with another 2 children who have already achieved 50 house points this term. Well done to you all!
