Dear Parents

Harvest Supper: 

Thank you to everyone who donated ingredients, helped with the cooking and brought friends and family to our Harvest Supper last night.  It was a lovely event with a real community feel and we managed to raise £374 for Banbury Homeless.  The children were very proud of their soups, bread and cakes – rightly so, they were delicious!

Bag2School – bags to be returned to school w/c 16 October ready for 9am collection on Friday 20th. This is your chance for an Autumn declutter; give us your unwanted adults’ and children’s clothing, shoes, hats, belts, handbags, ties and soft toys. The more you donate the more money the schools receives.  Extra bags welcome – there is no limit and you can use any bin bag.

Headlice:  Please check your child’s hair as headlice have been reported in Nursery and Owl Classes.

Reminder : There is an admin charge for late payments with Breakfast & Owl Club, so please pay promptly to avoid additional costs.
