Application for Reception Places

If your child is due to start school this September, the deadline for applications for Reception 2020 was WEDNESDAY 15th JANUARY 2020. If you have not yet applied you should do so immediately to give yourself a chance of getting a place at your preferred school.

If you would like to register your child, please apply online via the Calderdale Council website.

Welcome

This term we welcome three new members of staff to the school. Mrs Sarah Watson and Mrs Laura Iannelli will be serving the children in the kitchen and Mrs Jayne Fahey will be working in the school office. I am sure you will join us in welcoming them to our school.

Farewell

Last term term we said goodbye to two valuable members of the kitchen. Mrs Groves and Mrs Symes who have a total of 32 years service between them will be retiring this week. Mrs Groves has been cooking and serving our children for 23 years and Mrs Symes has been serving our children for 9 years. I am sure you will join us in wishing them well. They will be missed by everybody and we hope they enjoy their well earned rest.

 Helping Others

Christmas Friends

Thank you for all your help and support.

Christmas day was lovely. We had 18 guests and 9 volunteers so it felt busy. We had 3 courses followed by a quiz and handing out of the gifts. Everyone seemed to enjoy the day. 

Edie would like to say thank you to all her friends and teachers for supporting her. We couldn't have done it without you

 Best wishes

 Sam (Edie's Mum)

Christmas Jumper Day

Thank you for your donations. The total amount raised is £98.35 for Save The Children.

Overgate Reindeer Run

Nursery and Reception took part in Overgate's charity event the Reindeer Run. The children had lots of fun whilst raising money for an important cause.
The Foundation Stage unit raised over £500!

A Rainbow Harvest

Thank you to everyone who attended our Harvest Festival. Below are some photos of the marvellous display we were able to make.

Under The Stars - Calderdale Big Sleepout

Katie (and her dad) took part in the Calderdale Big Sleepout 2019 on Friday 11th October. She slept under the stars at the Piece Hall to raise awareness and money for Calderdale SmartMove – a charity supporting homeless and vulnerable people across Calderdale. To date, Katie and her dad have raised £205.50 for the charity. Katie jumped at the chance to do this as she has always shown a concern for the homeless and has often bought food and hot drinks for those in need when she has been out. We are all very proud of her dedication to this cause.

 Katie had a great time and said: “It was cold but extremely fun. We had hot dogs and hot chocolate too.”

 We are supporting SmartMove again this year through our Harvest collection. Thank you to all who have donated foods or toiletries, we will be collecting up until the end of the half term – Thursday 24th October.

In School Fundraising

We recently held events to raise funds to help two of our favourite charities. We were amazed at the response from children and parents alike. Thank you to everyone who has contributed by dancing, drinking tea and coffee, eating cakes or just donating!

A new logo for our school vision

Each letter of the word CREATION inspires us to think about things we wish our school to provide for everyone who learns and works here.

Can you find the word for each letter?
