We have had a number of ‘near misses’ lately at pick up and drop off times between cars and pedestrians. To try and avert these situations we would like to request that we operate a one way system, thereby avoiding the need for cars to reverse or turn round in the area outside the school.
To this end when approaching school up Livingstone Road please turn left up Bolton Hall Road (by the shop), then 1st right on Mexborough Rd and right on to the top of Livingstone Road. Please remember not to park on the yellow lines or in the school playground as this increases the risk of accidents. The playground is reserved for staff cars who generally arrive / leave school before /after the majority of pupils and also frees up more parking space on the roadside for parents.
Thank you to those parents have already adopted this new system.
Friday Christmas Fair @ 2pm
School will close at 2pm on Friday 1st December to allow families to enjoy the fair together. All students should be collected at 2pm.
The PTA is still looking for contributions of toys and games and also prizes for the tombola. Donations for the cake stall will be appreciated next Friday.
Volunteers to help on Friday are welcome.
Remember to send your child’s hamper items to school for the Class Hamper raffle.
There will be a ‘Create your own Christmas Jumper’ competition with prizes for the best 2 from each class.
The Annual Partnership evening has been attended by fewer and fewer parents over the last few years and so we are going to present the event in a different way. We will explain this in context with other communication next week. However, the usual Annual Partnership Evening, which was scheduled for Monday 27th November, will not go ahead.
We raised an amazing £170 last week for Baby Kia through the bun sale organised by Caitlin Duree. Well done to Caitlin and thank you to all who bought buns!
