Pen Licence

We have just introduced our new prizes for handwriting for all children across the school.  Children can work towards winning a bronze, silver and then gold pencil for their achievements in handwriting.  Once they have developed a consistent, joined style of handwriting then their teacher can award them a ‘Pen Licence’.  This licence allows the owner to use one of our amazing new handwriting pens in all their work.  We are looking forward to awarding our first pencils, licences and pens from next week.

100% Week

Our next 100% Week starts on Monday 3rd February.  Make sure that you come to school every day and on time for the chance to win a voucher.  All children who attend all week and arrive on time will be entered in to a draw to win a voucher.  There are two vouchers to be won in each Key Stage.

Syria Appeal

A big thank you to everyone who has given so generously to the Syria appeal.  I am sure that we have all been very moved by the pictures we have seen in the press and on the news.  We know that your donations will go towards making a big difference to the many children whose lives have been turned upside down by recent events there.  Once again a big thank you to all our families for supporting this worthwhile venture.  We will share updates with you when they become available.

Closures due to bad weather

I am sure you are all aware that it is that time of year when we may experience weather conditions, which could lead to the school closing to children.  I can assure parents that this will only happen if the school grounds are unsafe for children and staff.  We will endeavour to inform parents of any closure as early as possible by

  • Texting parents – please make sure we have your current mobile phone number on our records
  • Posting the closure on the Bradford Schools Online website –
  • An announcement on local radio stations
