After School Clubs
Bookings for after school clubs in the Spring Term can be made from Wednesday next week. All club bookings are for the whole Spring Term, please ensure you can commit to regular attendance before signing up. This term, we had a number of children who were signed up to more than one club on a single day, please only book one club per child on each day to ensure there are enough spaces for everyone.
A polite reminder that school closes for the Christmas holidays on Friday 17th December at 13:45.
Upcoming In School Events
EYFS & KS1 Christmas Performances
The children are continuing to work hard practicing their performances and they are sounding great. We are very hopeful that they will be able to go ahead next week with live audiences but please be aware that we may need to change this if our number of positive Covid cases increases. If that does happen, we will make a recording of the performances and share it with parents. Please check the newsletter next week and Facebook for any updates.
You should now have received your 1 ticket for your child’s performance. If you have not, please speak directly with your class teacher as you will need this ticket to gain entrance to the event. Please can we politely remind you to take a lateral flow test 24 hours before the performance, wear a mask indoors and only attend if your result is negative. If you have symptoms of Covid, or have been told to isolate by Test and Trace, please do not attend.
This year, after all performances we would like to invite parent/carers to join us under the canopy for some refreshments provided by the Friends of Hurst Drive. If you will be attending, please be mindful of social distancing as well as ensuring to use the hand sanitiser provided.
