Bag 2 School
We have arranged for a textile collection with Bag 2 School in order to raise funds. Please save unwanted textiles (adults’ and children’s clothes, shoes, hats, belts, handbags and soft toys). Watch this space for the next collection date.
You will be amazed at how often the children misplace their belongings - the mountain of un-labelled clothing in Lost Property is huge! For your own sanity, name EVERYTHING. We receive a commission from two label suppliers which have been tried, tested and are recommended by parents:
LabelPlanet (10%) - www.name-labels.com - code: 35586
Stamptastic (30%) - www.stamptastic.co.uk - code: AL54EN
Volunteering in School
From time-to-time, the school asks for volunteers to help with activities taking place in school time with the children. Volunteering is incredibly valuable to the school and a fulfilling way to get involved. You could volunteer for a regular slot (e.g. reading in class) or for special activities and school trips (great fun!). Any volunteer who is likely to be in a 1-to-1 situation with a child needs a DBS check (criminal record check). This is simple and free to do, but can take a few weeks for results to return - so please do get yours in advance so you are able to step up to join in! Contact Kathryn Jackson in the school office to start the process.
