Weekly Newsletter -03/12/21- Important Information


Dear Parents and Carers,

Application to open for the Christmas School Holiday Meal Scheme

Applications for the Christmas School Holiday Meal Scheme will close today at 5pm.

Through the Government’s Household Support Fund, the Council has allocated funding to continue the School Holiday Meal Scheme for December, which will allow eligible families to receive £30 per child to cover the two-week Christmas school break.
The scheme provides funds to ensure that eligible families can purchase food over the holidays to replace the meals a child would have received during a school day. The application window will open for a short period from Friday 26 November at 9 am, closing on Friday 3 December at 5 pm.

Families who have previously received payment via the scheme do not need to reapply and will automatically receive the funds into their nominated bank. If you believe you may be eligible – please contact our school office and we will be please to help you – or you can check out the details on the Council’s website

Christmas Performances

To ensure safety for all we ask that all adults take a LFD Test before attending the Christmas performances and whilst in school wear a mask to ensure that we minimise the risk to our school community. We will ensure that the hall is ventilated adequately and hand sanitizer and masks will be made available. Should you display Covid symptoms (a new cough, temperature or loss of taste/smell) you must not attend the performance. We are limiting the number of people attending the performances and only 2 tickets have been allocated per child.

YN - Y6 Class Parties - Thursday 16th December (pm)

To celebrate Christmas, we will be holding class parties on Thursday 16th December. The children should still wear their school uniform. It will not be necessary to send in party clothes.

We would be grateful for donations for your child’s class party which could include any from the following:
  • Crisps 
  • Iced Gems 
  • Biscuits 
  • Small Cakes
  • Mini sausages 
  •  Chicken Nuggets 
  • Sausage Rolls 
  • Breadsticks

We would request that contributions do not contain nuts and are brought in the day before/the day of the party. If possible, please send in food items that are individually wrapped. The school will provide water and fruit cordial throughout the afternoon as well as paper plates and disposable cups.

If your child has a specific allergy or dietary requirement, you may provide your child with a specific plate of food for the party. This should be clearly labelled and brought to school on the day of the party.

A separate letter has been sent to the parents and carers of children in Malta (ARP) with further details.

Ten Pin Bowling Panathlon 2021

We were fortunate enough to be invited to the annual Ten Pin Bowling Panathlon at Rollerbowl in Collier Row on Thursday the 2nd of December where we competed against 11 other schools in Havering. The members of our team were Joseph, Jacob, Daniel and Nicholae. We worked very hard and through our resilience and determination, we were able to secure third place. We were extremely proud of our Bronze medals. Daniel won an award for achieving the biggest amount of strikes and spares. ‘It was incredible and I cannot believe it!’: Daniel said after he was presented with his award. Everyone had a fantastic time and it was an event to be remembered.

Amazing work

The children in Madagascar have been working really hard and made such good progress with their trackers. Well done! Mr Denchfield πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸ»
