Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 8th November 2019

8 November 2019





Dear Parents and Carers,

Next week is Anti-Bullying Week in school. Anti-Bullying Week happens in schools across England each November. This year’s Anti-Bullying Week has the theme ‘Change Starts With Us’ and is happening from Monday 11th November – Friday 15th November 2019.

The children will take part in several activities and special assemblies to help them to understand that bullying, whether it is verbal, physical, online or in-person, has a significant impact on a child’s life well in to adulthood. Children will discuss support strategies with their teachers and will learn about looking out for each other. If you would like to find out more, please visit for more details.

Next Friday is also Children in Need 2019. We would like to invite everyone to wear their pyjamas to school to help raise money for Pudsey. Watch out for news on the school website of how much we raise and photos of us having fun on the day. Please contact our school office if you have any other questions.

Thank you for your continued support.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
