Pacesetter Clubs

Driveway - September 2019

We are one of the very few schools to have a drop off/pick up facility. However, it is becoming increasingly unmanageable and we are concerned about the health and safety of our children.

The Governors have made a decision that from September 2019 we will only open the driveway in the mornings for drop off and the Governors will monitor this.

The drop off/pick bays up will no longer be available to parent/carers at the end of the school day from September 2019.

'Sew a Sock' Sessions

We would like to invite parents/carers and children to join us for a practical session on Wednesday 25th September 2019. All you need to do is bring a sock. We will provide you with the decorations.

Year 6 SATs Meeting - September 2019

On Wednesday 2nd October 2019, there will be a Year 6 meeting for parents/carers and pupils in the hall at 6.00pm. This is a very informative meeting and we would love to see as many of you as possible. Topics discussed will include the following:

· Information around the Year 6 residential (including a video presentation of the facilities and activities) and booking arrangements

· Information pertaining to SATs, including dates and how to best prepare your child for these important tests

· Examples of SATs papers

We wouldn't want anybody to miss out on this information evening and the opportunity to ask questions, so please put this date in your diaries.


Uniform Sale - Reduced Prices

We have some uniform for sale at reduced prices. Limited sizes available. Please purchase items from the school office.


Message From Brigade

The deadline for ordering your child's uniform for the new school year is fast approaching. We know from experience that these last few weeks can fly by.

We advise all parents to order as soon as possible. Please order by 7th August 2019 for delivery before the start of the new term.

Orders are currently being delivered within 14-21 WORKING days.

You may need to place your order over the next few days if there's a possibility that you will need to re-order different sizes. This will allow yourself enough time to order your replacement sizes before the ordering deadline.

Although we still try our best to deliver orders placed after the deadline we cannot guarantee that you will receive them prior to the start of the new school year.
