Dear Parents and Carers,
Your children continue to make us smile, please us with their hard work and amaze us with their focus and determination. Despite what is going on in the wider world our school bubbles are happy and safe places to be. This little corner of normal is going well and we are delighted that our safety procedures are working – long may it last.
Like you, the staff are balancing so many things outside of school and focusing on your children in school. Amongst all of this I know that kind words and kind gestures are the things that keep us going and we are grateful for these. Staff have commented on the lovely feedback they received during parents’ meetings. These comments have really helped us thank you. I am honoured to work with this great team and blown away by their positive attitude.
I was really proud to escort the year 2 children on their walk to the War Memorial in the village on Wednesday this week. A small group of children laid a poppy wreath on behalf of the whole school to show our respects and we held a 2 minutes silence at 11 am.
Anti-Bullying Awareness Week
This year we will be supporting the Anti Bullying Alliances Odd Sock Day on Friday 20th November. This was very successful last year with lots of wonderful brightly coloured socks.
More details are available on their website here https://www.anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk/anti-bullying-week/anti-bullying-week-2020-united-against-bullying. We will also be holding a range of activities in school during next week on an Anti-Bullying theme. Please note this is an awareness day only and not a fundraising event.

Thank you to those parking in Blizzards Yard car park and around the village, rather than drive up School Lane or park on Silver Hill. There are still a lot of people parking on Silver Hill and across Crossing Corner please avoid this area so that children remain safe on the way to school.
Thank you to those parking at the playing fields and considerately around the village.
