Please find below the weekly newsletter containing important information.  


Year 6 - Graduation 

On Friday 19th July 2019, we will have a Graduation Ceremony for the Year 6 pupils leaving us to start their secondary school education.  For every child, we need a photograph of your child as a baby or a toddler - you can either bring in the photograph for us to scan and return to you or you may e-mail with the subject 'Year 6 Graduation Baby Photo'.  


Please have sent your photograph in by Friday 28th June 2019.  


2019 Reception Parent/Carer Meeting 

There is a meeting on Wednesday 26th June 2019 at 2:30pm in our main hall for parents/carers
of children joining Reception in 2019.  If you are unable to make it, we will be adding the information to our school website afterwards and we will be posting documents to those who do not attend.  


Year 6 Residential Trip - PGL

 Please click here to read the information parents/carers need regarding PGL.  Children can arrive to school at the normal time on Wednesday and they should be back to school by 4:00pm on Friday unless there is heavy traffic.  We will message you if the children are due to arrive back late.  The teachers will update Facebook regularly throughout each day so do make sure you follow us to get all the latest photographs and videos of your children.  


If your child is not attending PGL, they must be in school.  Thank you. 


Library Trip 

Apple Class will be visiting Waltham Cross Library on Tuesday 25th June so don't forget to bring your library cards or a completed library form.


Summer Fair

The Friends of Hurst Drive will be organising a Summer Fair on the back playground and field on the 12th July to raise money for the school. If you have any donations for the stalls (ie: soft toys in good condition, unopened toiletry gift sets) could you please hand them in at the office. Any donations would be appreciated.

The Friends are also looking for any helpers to either set up or run a stall please call in the office to put your name down if you are able to help. Thank you.


Father’s Day Sale

We would like to say a big thank you to the Friends of Hurst Drive for all their help at the Father’s Day sale last week. We appreciate all your hard work and we are sure that all of the Fathers who received lovely gifts appreciate it too.


Dinner Money

Just a quick reminder that dinner money needs to be paid in advance on a Monday. Our preferred method of payment is on School Gateway. If you are unable to pay on the School Gateway, please come into the office with the correct money in an envelope. The weekly cost of school dinners is £12.50 for five meals.

If you receive a dinner debt letter please make sure this is cleared straight away to avoid your child having to bring in a packed lunch until the debt is cleared. Unpaid dinner debts could result in the cost of the school dinner charge being increased in the future. Which would be unfair for those parents/carers who always pay on time.


End of day collection times 

Please note the school day finishes at 3:15 pm. Can we please remind you that your children need to be collected at this time. Can we also please remind you to contact the office during the school day if you have a friend or family member collecting your child who is not on your contact list.

Thank you.


Yours sincerely
