Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Diary Dates
It is hard to believe that it is February already and that next week is the last week of the half term.
On Tuesday 6th February spinebreakers from Rowan class are visiting the library, school council are meeting the cluster school council representatives at Drapers’ Pyrgo school. After school Broadford are playing Drapers’ netball team at Broadford.
On Wednesday 7th in their class pupils will have the opportunity to take part in the spelling bee and earn themselves a place in the spelling team for the competition at the end of the year. Year 5 will be cooking and trying some delicious chinese cuisine and LAMDA sessions will go ahead as usual in the afternoon.
On Thursday 8th the girls football team will be competing in a year 5 & 6  competition. It is the last day of the half term.

Jump Evolution
Next week pupils will be visiting jump evolution for their PE session.
The school has a small supply of trampolining socks, however if your child has visited Jump Evolution before and you still have socks please send them in with them so we can avoid being charged £2 per pair. With 560 children in the school the costs for socks only would be £1,120.00.   Without the safety socks the children will not be able to participate. Please see the details below to find out when your child is visiting the park.

Children should come to school in their school uniform but they can wear leggings or tracksuit bottoms instead of school trousers and skirts. If for any reason you do not wish your child to take part, please advise their class teacher below the day they are due to go.

Mead Farm
Mead farm is up and running ready for children to visit. All pupils will have the opportunity to visit the farm and have a hands on experience with the animals during the rest of this school year. This will involve pupils attending sessions where they will learn about the animals and will have the opportunity to pet them (In these sessions they will not be feeding or cleaning the animals out).
Health and safety is a priority and prior to visiting the farm area all pupils will be advised on the expectations. Hand washing facilities are  provided in the farm area as well as ample hand sanitizers. We will emphasise to the children the importance of keeping their hands clean and away from their face when handling the animals and will ensure they wash their hands thoroughly after visiting the farm.
If for any reason you do not want your child to be involved then please do let us know in writing. If we don’t receive a letter, we will assume that you are willing to let your child take part in this exciting opportunity. ​
