Letters to Parents

Sports Day Thursday 27th June2019


Dear Parents/Carers


We hope to have our annual Sports Day on Thursday 27th June (tomorrow) on the School Field.  It will start at approximately 1.15pm and will finish at approximately 3.30pm.

We hope that you will attend the event to support and encourage the children. 

Pupils will sit in their class groups on the Duke Street side of the field below the running track whilst Parents and other Family members will be above the track on the Bath Street side.

If little ones come to watch we would ask you to make sure that they keep clear of all activities and remain seated with you. This also applies to pupils from Brisbane Park Infant School if they join us at 3pm as we have a packed schedule and would not want anybody to get hurt.

Please be advised that we will not be taking chairs down to the field and so if parents wish they may bring their own.

On Thursday morning children should come to school ready for Sports Day in their PE Kit (white polo shirt or T-shirt, navy or black school shorts and red school sweatshirt with plimsolls or trainers). Everyone should bring a water bottle or bottle of water. All pupils will return to school after the event is finished to take everything back and collect their belongings. They will then be dismissed from school as usual.

The weather forecast for Thursday is full sun and 23º and so it is important for parents to apply sun cream before school and for children to also bring a hat.

At the moment the children are practising really hard so it should be a great event.

Yours sincerely

Years 6 ‘Reproduction’ – Monday 20th May 2019


Dear Parent / Carer

Years 6  ‘Reproduction’ –  Monday 20th May 2019

It is a requirement of the National Curriculum that Relationship and Sex education (RSE) is taught to children.  In order to fulfil this Donna Moore, a Specialist Health Educator, is coming into school on Monday 20th May to show a DVD and talk about ‘How a baby’s made’ and ‘How a baby’s born’.

The talk and DVD is normally followed up with relevant worksheets that the children will bring home for you to look at and discuss with them should you wish to do so.  Any issues that arise are dealt with sensitively.

We have arranged with Donna that her contact details are available from school if anyone would like to talk to her about the content of the lesson and DVD shown.

Should you not wish your child to take part in this lesson, please contact us at school.

Many thanks

Yours sincerely

Mrs  Rushton                                              Mrs Merritt

Class 6R/Assistant Head Teacher                Class 5/6M Teacher
