Message from the Head

As we near the end of winter, there is still time for snow! If there is snow and we can’t open, we will text you, as well as add our closure to Bradford Schools Online www.bso.bradford.gov.uk and add to our facebook & twitter pages. Please check.

Trips & Visits

As you will see and read on the news, schools are really struggling financially as costs go up but our income stays the same.

We plan educational trips and visits, in and out of school, to enhance your children’s experiences and add to their learning.

As contributions are voluntary, we are now at the stage that these trips and visits may need to be cancelled due to insufficient contributions. Other than residentials, all our trips never cost more than £10 and school makes no profit at all. Please can we encourage as many of you as possible to make these contributions to ensure our children have the best experiences.

Thank you

 

Punctuality

Thank you to all of you who come to school on time every day. Our doors close at 9am.

When Ofsted next visit our school, they check the late registers and this can affect what grade we get!

BE ON TIME, AT SCHOOL BEFORE 9!

 

Half term holiday next week

We break up this Friday 14th Feb and return on Tuesday 25th February.

Have a fabulous holiday.

Healthy Lunchboxes

We all want our children to be healthy and happy. We know that sometime is a hard balance! Most children prefer ‘unhealthy’ food options! If your child has a packed lunch, please try to keep this healthy.

What to put in a lunchbox?

Sandwich: cheese, tuna, egg, or meat. Add some salad, a piece of fruit, a packet of crisps / or mini cheddars, cheese string, small yogurt. An alternative would be crackers and cheese instead of a sandwich or maybe pasta. No drinks are needed as every child has a glass of water available to them at lunch.

No chocolate or sweets please.
