  • Christmas Hamper update: thanks to everyone's generous pledges, we have enough to fill all our hampers! Please remember to bring in your items by Monday 13 December - you can drop them off at the school office. The tickets for the draw should be returned to school on or before Wednesday 16 December, ready for the big draw on the 16 December. Please collect more squares to sell if you need to - good luck!
  • Christmas events:
    • We're really pleased to be able to fund with the Christmas cinema trip for Years 1 to 6, on the 16 December
    • The FoSS Christmas disco will take place in school on 16 December - more details to follow
  • We're waiting for the final amount to be confirmed but we have raised around £100 from the sale of the Cauliflower Christmas Cards.
  • We're continuing to work with the school and their volunteer fundraiser Jill Bawden on the Kidsty Pike outdoor area and the new gardening area at the front of the school. Watch out for more updates in the school newsletter as the work continues - we're looking forward to seeing it all in place.
