Whole School Improvements

Whilst everyone is busy enjoying their summer holidays, things have not stopped at Clockhouse and at the time of writing there is still more being done!

The Key Stage 2 hall roof has been totally replaced whilst the roof that runs across Year 4, 5 and one Year 6 class is well underway!

School Uniform - Reminder

As you know we take pride in the fact that all our children wear school uniform and would like to take this opportunity to thank parents and carers for the support they give us in achieving this. School uniform is one of the ways in which we encourage the children to feel a part of the school community. 

Therefore as you may well be beginning to think about school uniform for September in the not too distant future, please can we remind you all that when you are buying new uniform please remember that shoes should be predominantly black.

The uniform is as follows:
                                                    White polo shirts with school logo
                                                    Grey shorts or long trousers
                                                    Royal blue sweatshirt with school logo
                                                    Sensible shoes, not boots (preferably without laces)
                                                    Grey skirt or pinafore dress
                                                    Royal blue cardigan (sweatshirt) with school logo
                                                    Blue and white check dress

PE Kit:                                        White t-shirt with school logo
                                                    Royal blue shorts
                                                    Royal blue / Grey tracksuit

Please note that the children in the Nursery do not need a PE kit.

Nail Varnish: Please remember that nail varnish and make up is not to be worn by pupils. Any designs that have been painted on during the holiday need to be removed by the start of school in September.

Earrings: Please also remember that earrings should not be worn for school for health and safety reasons.

School Uniform Sales:
To ensure that the start of the new school year is as smooth as possible, please ensure that uniform is purchased on the two training days in September before the children return. Mrs Baker’s uniform shop will be open on September 5th and 6th but will be shut on 7th and 8th September. It will re-open on 9th September. 

Order forms for school uniform can be obtained from the school office from 5th September.

Please ensure that ALL uniform is clearly named.

Thank you in advance for your support in this matter.

Cancer Research Donation Station - Please Donate

Dear Parents / Carers

We all hope that you are enjoying the holidays. For those of you who take the opportunity to have a good clear out, we are pleased to inform you that, once again,  in conjunction with Cancer Research UK, we have agreed to hold a ‘Donation Station’ at the school after the summer holiday.

So if you are having a good sort out during the holidays and find any clothes, toys etc. that you would like to donate, please bring them into the school where they will be stored.

Thank you in advance for your support of this worthy cause.

Mrs Collard
