End of Term 4 – children finish at normal time

Is your child well enough for school?

We had quite a few children off on Friday or sent home with flu-like symptoms (fever / sore throat) or severe tummy pains and fever. If you think your child is unwell on Monday, please would you be kind enough to keep them from attending school so that we can prevent the spread of these common viruses any further and keep those more vulnerable members of our community safer - thank you.

Message for YN parents

Please could we ask that the children keep home toys at home.  We have noticed an increased number being brought in this week and we cannot guarantee that toys won’t go missing or get broken, which causes upset for the children.  
Thank you.
The Nursery Team.

Spelling Bee Y5 Team
Well done to the Y5 Spelling Bee Team - Emmanuella, Saifan, Esther and Ibrahim.  Bradon Forest, where the competition is held, sent us this message  - Super effort by the Tadpole Farm team in the Bradon Forest Spelling Bee competition today!  Pipped at the post by St Francis.  The story and photos are now on our website:

The team will be back at Bradon Forest this week for the final:) 

Church at Tadpole
We have had an enjoyable 2 years so far meeting once a month for tea, chat and worship in the school hall, however we are aware that we may not be meeting the needs of the school or the local community so have decided to pause for a few months and think about what would be best going forward.

We would be really grateful if you could fill in the questionnaire you’ll find here, it won’t take more than 5 minutes, so that we can plan our activities accordingly.

If you would like more information or to chat rather than answer computerised questions, please contact me.

Many thanks
Sally
