Dear Parents,

Thank you to everyone who came to the PTA meeting last Thursday the turnout was good. The new PTA constitution will be coming out soon for you all to see and comment on. Also thank you to all the parents that ran the PTA film night on Friday it was enjoyed by all.

We had a lovely day on Tuesday enjoying the huge snowflakes that were falling and even better all the roads were clear by home time – my kind of snow!

Next week the children in Ospreys are off to the Lowry to take part in a dance workshop and art activities to support their work on L S Lowry. We are all very excited about it.

On Friday next week 1st February the Ospreys will be leading our assembly do join us if you can.

If your child is in choir and you haven’t returned the letter about the Kinder Choir Concert please can you.

We have received the following:

Dear Parents –

With online payments on the rise, Eduspot (as providers of SchoolMoney) would like to remind you to be extra vigilant when making payments.

Recently, there have been a small number of reports of attempts to defraud parents whilst using SchoolMoney. We thoroughly investigate all reports of attempts to defraud parents using our system (including separate, independent checks) and can confirm that we found we found that no fraud, data breach or malicious attack has occurred.

We believe however, that it important to remind parents to be extra vigilant when making payments online. NEVER give out your ATM pin to anyone – no system or person should ever require this to complete an online transaction. If something looks suspicious, do not complete the payment, close down your browser and start again making sure you are using a genuine website.

You should also ensure all system and app updates are applied to your PC or mobile devices and that they have reliable, up-to-date anti-virus software installed. Increasingly, mobile devices are the targets of malicious software so it’s important that these also have adequate protection.

Eduspot remains committed to protecting your online security and providing you with an easy to use solution to securely make payments to your schools. If you spot something that doesn’t look right relating to SchoolMoney, please contact us at

The Eduspot Team
