Autumn Disco

Tickets are still available for the autumn discos which are being held on Thursday 24th October. Booking forms are available  on ParentMail. 

 Reception  –  3:30pm – 4:15pm

 Years 1 & 2 – 4:30pm – 5:15pm

 Years 3 & 4 – 5:30pm – 6:30pm

 Years 5 & 6 – 6:45pm – 7:45pm

Fancy dress is optional (no masks as we need to identify the children easily). Tickets will cost £2.50 each (All year groups will be provided with biscuits and drinks as per usual and the Yr 3/4 and Yr 5/6 children can bring pocket money for extras.) We are also opening another hall for parents to wait whilst their children are in the discos and tea and coffee will be on sale. We will also have a reading and colouring table. 

If your child has a ticket for the disco and usually attends Space Cadets on Thursday you will need to make arrangements for your child to be taken to and/or collected from the disco, as Space Cadets are unable to change or take children to the hall.

 

Harvest Festival

Thank you to everyone who donated items to the Harvest Festival on Monday. The Foodbank collected 2 car loads of items which will make an enormous difference to our local families.  Please remember that we have a donation point for Kingswood Foodbank all year round and any donations can be left in the black box in the foyer.

Use of the Ball Court and Climbing Frame after school

We have a number of children who are staying behind after school with their parents to play in the ball court and on the climbing frame instead of going straight home.

Once you have collected your child at the end of the day they are no longer the responsibility of the school and should not be using the climbing frame unless supervised by a member of school staff.

Please ensure you and your child/children leave the school premises by 3:30pm so that our site team can secure the site.
