The Council’s financial strategy for 2019/20 includes a budget reduction of £405,000 in public transport and £50,000 for Shrewsbury Park & Ride.
To achieve these reductions a number of initiatives will have to be implemented and the attached consultation asks for views about these proposed changes.
We very much look forward to hearing from you or parents regarding this consultation & would encourage responses to be sent to the following E-mail address by 6 May 2019:

The children have had a couple of very exciting Fridays. First on 8th March when they took part in a sponsored new-age inter-house kurlathon! The children demonstrated fantastic sportsmanship and had a fun-packed day! We hope you have seen some of the photos in the local press. Then on Friday 15th March British junior canoe slalom champion Kurts Adams visited school. He held a whole school assembly where he told children that he started canoeing at the age of 10 and the dedication it takes to be an athlete. His talks were inspirational with a stand out quotation ‘Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard!’ The children then got some hands on training in the Kurts’ canoe and learned how to use an oar in smaller class sessions. Pupils also worked very hard in getting sponsors for the kurlathon, with what looks to be approximately £1,500.00 raised! The money is split between Inspired Through Sports, who arrange for the athletes to come into schools, the printing of sponsor forms and some fabulous prizes etc. and school. On top of the fundraising we also get to order new sports equipment if 50% of the school have taken part.
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.
