Dear Parents,

Welcome back I hope you all had a good week and a bit off, I know lots of you took the opportunity of the slightly longer holiday to get away on a cheaper holiday than you can in the summer.

We came back to a lovely event where one of the children received The Bishop’s Badge and the work of the Kites and Harriers supporting Reuben’s Retreat and Mummy’s Star was recognised. It was such a pleasure to have our children recognised and rewarded by the Bishop.

Today and tomorrow all the children from Y2 upwards will be walking up to St James’ Church to do some RE work either on Thursday or Friday. This is a drama performance called The Fisherman’s Tale. We are looking forward to what is always a good session. We are very grateful to Whitfield Parish for putting on this event.

On Friday 7th there will not be a family assembly. On Friday 14th June Eagles will be leading our Assembly.

Today you should be getting a bag 2 school bag, please fill it with old textiles and shoes and bring it back to school on 14th June.

On Monday some of the Year 3 children have planned and organised a cake sale in aid of homeless charities. They have asked me to ask you to send in cakes to sell (preferably small cakes and biscuits) and also to send your child in with a donation. I am so impressed with the work the children have put into this and I hope you can support their efforts.

On Monday the choir are singing in New Mills Arts Theatre as part of the PEGS annual concert. I am sorry the letters came out so late. Please can you return the permission slips as soon as possible.

On Thursday and Friday next week the Year 4s and Y6s have been offered a music workshop by the Glossop Music Festival. We are all looking forward to these events.

On Friday 14th June it is a non-uniform day. For the privilege of coming to school in sensible casual clothes the children are asked to bring in a bottle for the PTA. The bottle can be of anything; shampoo, sauce, pop, wine – anything. Thank you for supporting school in this way.

On Friday 21st June the PTA are holding a fashion show in school. Tickets, which cost £5, will be available from the school office and Blossom.

Public Health are consulting with the public and local stakeholders on creating ‘additional smokefree public spaces’. One of the main aims of any future work in this area is to try and protect children from second hand smoke. The consultation can be found here
