Hi everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend.

We only have four weeks left of this term and I have no doubt it will be a crazy four weeks up to Christmas.  Fingers crossed everything we have planned can go ahead.  

This week we have parent teacher meetings online.  If you have not signed up yet, please speak to your class teacher as they are such valuable meetings for both parents and teachers.  

Because of parent teacher meetings, I am postponing our planned parent forum this week until next Tuesday (30th November) at 5pm.  I will also be finding other times to meet with parents to get your views and work together to improve our school even further.

Just a reminder key things planned for the next few weeks:

Friday 26th November 2.50pm – Year 1 Sharing Assembly

Wednesday 1st December – Years 5 and 6 are visiting Hob Moor School in York for a Chimp Play looking at wellbeing.

Thursday 2nd December 2pmKey Stage 2 Carol Concert in church.  All classes will attend.  Please join us if you can.

Friday 3rd December 2.50pm – Year 2 Sharing Assembly

Tuesday 7th December 2pm and 5pmEarly Years and Key Stage 1 Nativity Performances in school.  Information has already gone out regarding tickets.

Friday 10th December 1pmInfluenza immunizations for those in Reception – Year 6 who have signed up

Friday 10th December 2.50pmYear 4 Sharing Assembly

Monday 13th December – Christmas Disco: 

                                             Esk and Nidd – 3.15-4.00pm – please bring party clothes for children to change into at the end of the day.  Parents can collect at 4pm

                                             Key Stage 1 – 4.15-5.15pm – collect from classroom doors

                                             Key Stage 2 – 5.30-6.30pm – all children must be collected regardless of whether they have permission to walk home as it is so late finishing.  Children to be collected                                               from normal collection points

Wednesday 15th DecemberChristmas Lunch: Please see information already sent out.  It will be a crazy day but it will be so good to share lunch with parents.  I have no doubt there will be lots of parents who want to join us so please anticipate there may be some wait time for lunch, particularly in between sittings.

Friday 17th DecemberChristmas Jumper Day then we finish for the Christmas holidays at 3.15pm.


As the number of COVID cases is rising across the country, to reduce risk and allow us to have events in school before Christmas, please can I ask you to wear facemasks during events in school.  I just want to make sure we are doing everything we can to allow events to go ahead and not ruin anyone’s Christmas by contracting COVID. 

So, a very busy few weeks ahead!

Looking forward to seeing you all at events over the next few weeks,

Mrs Fletcher
