Year 6 French Residential visit - Passport update

Dear Parents/Carers, we will be contacting you after half-term to begin to gather information in preparation for our Year 6 residential visit to France in July. In the meantime, I wanted to share some important updates with you regarding the necessary travel documents for your child. 

Please note that pupils with British citizenship travelling under the school's Collective passport do not need a valid British passport but must simply complete the relevant forms to confirm citizenship status. Forms will be sent to you after half-term.

Pupils who are citizens of other countries will need to travel with their own valid passports. However, I'm pleased to say that those pupils who would normally need a visa to travel to France no longer need one under new rules for school trips. They will however, need a valid visa to re-enter the UK.

I hope these updates are useful. We will be in touch after half term to request the relevant documents. 

CPG Homework Books - Payments still needed please

Dear Parents, only 35% of CPG homework books have been paid for.  As indicated in the Newsletter at the start of the year, due to the high cost of the books, we are requesting a voluntary contribution of £6.50 from each family.  This payment can be made on MCAS.  Thank you for your continued support.


Whole class reading texts


Please can all pupils have their own copy of the DK Eyewitness text book 'Victorians' which we will be focusing on during our whole class reading sessions from the start of the second half term in Autumn.

    Sanitary products

    Due to the Government’s period product scheme, we have a supply of sanitary towels for girls that require them. This is so girls don’t miss out on their education due to having their period. These are now available in the Year 5 and 6 girls’ toilets on the windowsill. The girls will also be told of the location as there was previously sanitary products in a different location. There will be safety information displayed alongside the products and there is a sanitary bin for safe disposal. If you have a daughter, who has started her periods, please explain that if she needs these products, she can help herself without asking and then can dispose on her old sanitary towel and wrapping in the sanitary bin. If your child is already brining in sanitary products, she can continue to do so but there are products available if needed. The make we have are Always sanitary towels. Please talk to your daughter, about how to use these safely, including that they should be changed regularly. The brand Always suggest they should be changed every 4- 8 hours for health reasons. If your daughter is ever worried about having their period at school, please encourage them to speak to their teacher or another trusted adult in school.
