Dear Parents

Clubs – this week was the last week of clubs (except Sewing which will finish on Wednesday 11 July). Advanced Warning! We hope to send out details of the Autumn term’s clubs at the end of next week. In our drive towards a cashless system, we will be trialling the Parentmail system for parents/carers to purchase places on clubs, where spaces are purchased on a first-come-first-served basis (although you will be able to add your child to a ‘waiting list’ if a club is full). To be able to do this, you will need to log onto your Parentmail account. We would recommend that you take the time to make sure you can log in at and can see all your children in your account so that you have time to resolve any problems before the clubs payments go live.
You are also able to see and pay for school meals, visits, Breakfast/Owl Club, etc. Please remember that school meals MUST be paid for in advance.
