December is always a very busy month for everyone. With the run up to the holidays pupils, staff, parents and carers become increasingly busy and committed to events linking to the festive season.
To help you keep up to date with key date please check the attached newsletter. We hope you can join us for some of the events we have taking place in school.
Dear Parents and Carers,
Over the past week we have had many children and staff falling ill with the D&V sickness that is hitting the whole of Leeds. Today we have 160pupils off and many staff being sent home following bouts of Ignore
The greatest number of cases involve our Reception and Year 1 classes.
We have spoken to ur CEO and made the difficult decision to CLOSE REC AND YEAR 1 only, tomorrow on Friday 29th November. This will allow pupils and staff who are already ill to recover and hopefully help stop the spread of the illness. It will also allow for a deep clean of classroom to destroy any germs that are lingering.
We appreciate the inconvenience this will cause but one in every four pupils ill and other falling ill it is a necessary measure we must take.
Information from the NHS has been shared on Facebook earlier today. If your child has been ill please keep them off school for the next 48 hours to prevent the further spread of illness.
IMPORTANT CLUB DISMISSAL INFORMATION:
Hi all, as club dismissal can be very busy there will be different dismissal points, from this afternoon, to help spread them out a bit.
Phase 1 (Reception and Y1) will be dismissed from the Heart space.
Phase 2 (Y2,3,4) will be dismissed from the Phase 2 classrooms (parents please check the classroom doors to see which club is on).
Phase 3 clubs will leave via the Year 8/9 entrance (main entrance).
All through Sports club will be dismissed from the Heart Space.
Parents/Carers please be patient at dismissal and don’t call for your child as some of the teachers running clubs will not know you so will need to ensure pupils are leaving with the correct adults.
Thanks for your co-operation.
It’s NATIONAL POETRY DAY this Thursday. All pupils are invited to come to school in non-uniform to celebrate the day. Throughout the day pupils will be engging in reading, writing and performing poetry. A £1 donation for non-uniform is suggested. All money raised will be used to enhance the school library resources. Thank you for your support.

Dear Parents and Carers,
The last few weeks of summer term are upon us and rather than have a gradual end to the school year a flooding incident has meant things have become much busier than we had anticipated.
A fault with the main water tank resulted in an entire floor of classrooms filling with over 1000 cubic metres of water. Although we worked quickly to get all the water out, the rooms have taken some time to dry. Currently over 20 industrial heaters and dehumidifiers are running 24 hours a day to remove the damp. In the meantime staff have created ‘pop-up classrooms’ in spaces all over school and are going above and beyond to make sure this has as little impact as possible on teaching and learning.
Some things have had to change e.g. Read, Write Inc. lessons have been replaced with in-class phonics sessions so pupils still receive the same content, assemblies have altered as Rec are using the Heart Space,
Dear Parents and Carers,
Due to the flooding across school we will be cancelling ALL after school clubs for the remainder of the half term except these few:
Miss Leighton’s Clubs
Monday – cheerleading…
Tuesday- phase 3 dance
Wednesday – musical theatre
Friday- all through dance
Mr Connor’s All star cricket club
Miss Richardson’s Boys rugby
Miss Townend’s Phase 2 Football Club on a Wednesday
The Admin Team will confirm this with you.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.
Thank you for your understanding.
