Friday Update – 12th November

12 November 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,

You may have noticed a new development on our main school yard this week. After feedback from the children across school around ways in which we can promote being healthy, we are excited to announce the opening of our fruit shop. This will enable children in Key Stage 2 to buy a healthy snack to enjoy during their break times. Children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 will continue to access fruit through the government fruit scheme. However, we will have termly specials such as fruit of the week which all children may enjoy if they wish to do so. Further information will follow in regards to the fruit available and costs. All profits made will go back into re-stocking the shop. The shop will be ran by a team of pupils from Key Stage 2, giving them real-life experiences of running a business, dealing with money and stock taking.

You can follow our school on Twitter Kells Lane Primary School (@KLPSgateshead) / Twitter where we will announce the opening of the shop and reveal the name!

Have a great weekend.

Your sincerely,

Mrs R Swinbank

Acting Headteacher
