Our Vision

We believe that our children should have the aspiration and opportunity to ‘Live life in all its fullness and ‘Shine like stars in the sky’.

New this week…

Friday 1st March 2024 - Busy end
Reception parents only are invited into class to see our learning in action.  Please join us from 2.45pm on Friday 1st March, we will be playing, building, making and sharing stories.  Although we understand siblings might need to accompany parents, please be aware that our environment is not safe for very young children and the classroom is not particularly large.
Forest School Wednesday - Acorn Class
This half term Acorn will have their forest school sessions EVERY Wednesday. Children need to bring with them one waterproof coat, waterproof trousers, hat and gloves.  Please make sure these are named and your child knows what they have brought with them. 
Can all items be in a small bag separate to their lunch or reading bag.
Red Nose Day
We are changing how we are marking Comic Relief this year.  We would like to recognise this important charity event and are inviting children to wear one item of red to school that day (everything else is school uniform).  We are asking if you wish to donate to charity that you do so directly through the Comic Relief website, via this link
Polite Reminder - Allergens in school – Important Information
We have members of our school community who have severe allergens to the following products:

Cashew nuts, peanuts, lentils, chickpeas and peas (including pea protein, pea flour and pea fibre). 
Please support us to keep our school community safe by ensuring these products do not come into school and are not included in your child’s packed lunch or snack.  In addition, please can we request that all grapes, blueberries, cherries, sausages, popcorn need to be cut up, or avoided as they pose a significant choking risk to young children.
World Book Day Thursday 7th March 2024
Please see the separate email sent out today.

Residential visit to Bewerley Park
A gentle reminder for parents to settle their accounts on Parent Pay for Bewerley Park by the very latest Friday 15th March 2024.  Please find all relevant information about the trip on the school website under School News & Events.  Copies of all forms are also available via the website.

SEND Parent Catch-up 
Our catch-up this term will be on Monday 4th March 8:45-9:45am. I have some great resources for us to look at facing challenges and talking to your child at these times. But as always, the meeting is led by you! Let Miss Oates know if you can make it and if there is anything in particular you would like to discuss. The group is open to any parents or carers of SEND children but if this is not you and you think you would find the meeting useful, please get in touch. Biscuits included! 
Safeguarding, Health and Wellbeing Updates…
Message from the Living Autism Foundation
Living Autism Foundation is a charity who help autistic people, their families and carers. One of our main objectives is to provide workshops which will offer information and approaches to help reduce anxieties and to improve health and wellbeing.
We have organised our next workshop at York CVS, 15 Priory Street, York, YO1 6ET, on Saturday 16th March 2024 from 09.30am to 12.30pm. Our guest speaker, Geoff Evans is one of the country’s leading authorities on autism, with over 30 years’ experience. Geoff will provide an overview of Pathological Demand (Extreme) Avoidance, including how it is defined and its impact upon the autistic person and their families. He will discuss possible explanations including; high levels of stress and anxiety; Intolerance of Uncertainty (IoU); and low self esteem; as well as the behaviours/strategies the young person may use to avoid demands. He will also explore ways of supporting the individual and where further advice and support can be accessed.
The workshops are free to attend, however, should anyone attending feel they could support these or future workshops with a voluntary donation, this would be very much appreciated. A large part of our funding relies on donations.
