And just like that the Easter Fayre is over for another year. It’s been a great success and lots of fun – thank you for all your donations and support! The children had a great time and its not quite finished yet! The winners of the Guess the number of Chicks, Guess the number of eggs and Pin the beak on the chick will be announced on Monday! We also have our Easter raffle taking place on Thursday 1st April, there’s still time to purchase a ticket. There are going to be lots of winners! Please remember that we break up on Thursday 1st April and return Tuesday 20th April for Shakespeare week!

Just some things to keep you up to date on:

Milk, Leavers Hoodies, Y6 Thurston, £10 voucher for all, Medicine and Free Cricket…phew!


The summer term payment for milk money is due and is now on parent pay.  The last date to pay is Friday 23rd April, no more payments will be taken after that date.  If your child is in receipt of free school meals through receipt of means tested benefits milk will be ordered automatically, you do not need to do anything.

Year 6 Leavers Hoodies

There will be navy hoodies available to order for the children leaving Y6 in July. The school logo will be on the front and names will be placed in the shape of the year on the reverse.

Hoodies will cost £12.50 (Payable via Parent Pay). Children will be permitted to wear these tops for the last two weeks of the summer term before they leave instead of their normal school jumper or cardigan.

If you wish to order, please complete the Google Form (link below).

We have three sample sizes in school from the supplier of an extra-large youth, small adult and medium adult to be used as a gauge for size in school. Children will be able to assess which size they need with the support of staff in school. Orders are non-refundable once placed with the supplier.

Please complete the below form to order:

Orders must be placed and paid for by Wednesday 21st April 2021. Any orders received but not paid for will not be completed after this date. No later orders will be accepted.

Year 6 Thurston Activity Week

Today names have been drawn by Mrs Cunningham for those lucky children to be offered a place. There is now a £50 deposit payment on Parent Pay with the balance payment to follow.

£10 voucher to all

We have been told that all families will receive a £10 Aldi voucher (except those families in receipt of free school meals who will receive a £25 voucher as before).  This is in recognition that all of our families have been in some way affected by Covid 19. More details to follow.

More information about Easter activities will soon be available on the Council website, visit

Please can we ask that children do not keep medicine in their coats or pockets when in school.
