Sainsburys Active Kids Vouchers
We are taking part in Sainsbury’s Active Kids 2016. This means that from 27
January – 3 May, you can collect vouchers at Sainsbury’s and donate them to
us by 8 July. We can then exchange them for exciting new sports and cooking
equipment and experiences for our kids. Simply bring your vouchers into
school or drop them in our collection box in the school reception. Thank you.

Friends of Conway Park
Many families living in the local area will know that the
Friends of Conway Park are working with local councillors to
improve the children’s play area, paths and car park on
Conway Park, and also the area near the brook. This has
already resulted in the widening and resurfacing of the
footpath from Belton Hill to Walker Lane. The Council’s
landscape architects have now produced a draft plan to show
the ideas for the improvements to the park. These plans will
be taken out for public consultation at the end of February.
From Tuesday 8th to Wednesday 9th March they will be on
display in school. Parents and their children are invited to
come and look at the plans and complete a questionnaire with
their views. Anne Richardson and Kay Jackson from the FoCP
will be in school on the Tuesday from 3pm to 6.30pm to
answer any questions you may have. Alternatively, the plans
can be viewed, and the questionnaire completed, online at
www.friendsofconwaypark.co.uk.

School Disco
A huge thank you to everyone who helped at
the recent disco, it was a great success and
all the children behaved impeccably and
appeared to be enjoying themselves. The
profit was £617. Amazing! Thank you for
supporting PTFA events.

PTFA Meeting
The next meeting will be on Monday 29th
February at 7.30pm at the Guild Merchant.
Hope to see you there. Remember that these
meetings are open to all parents and are very
informal. Please consider coming along to see
how you can support the school. Thank you.

Y4 Mini Skills Competition
Well done to the Y4 pupils who took part.
Pictures will be on the School Blog soon.

Here to help
Remember that your child’s welfare is important to us. If you have any concerns please contact your child’s class
teacher, our Learning Mentor Mrs Wright or Mrs Gregory. We are usually available at some point during every
day but if it’s something that needs a proper discussion, please avoid the start of the day if possible, as we are
busy sorting the children out at this time.
