We are hoping that BBC East Midlands will come in today to film the opening of our Eco Greenhouse.

Look out for it on the BBC East Midlands news tonight!

We will have more about the grand opening in next week’s newsletter.



Friday 19th October

the theme is “Come Casual”

This year Miss Ford is hoping to raise funds to buy bicycles and equipment for all year groups. The more money raised , the more we can buy, so please remember to bring your 50p!



If you send money into school, for dinners, trips etc, please make sure that it is in an envelope, with your child’s name, class, the amount enclosed and what it is for clearly written on the front.

Thank you

Arboretum Park Café

The Heart of the Park Café in Arboretum Park has been reopened to provide a safe space for people of all faiths, beliefs and none to promote social inclusion and celebrate diversity. They urgently need funding, and need to raise £2000 this month to avoid closure. They want to make it an attractive place to meet at the centre of the community, particularly for young people.

You can help in a number of ways:

Donate by visiting their Crowdfunding page -

Donate equipment for the café

Spread the word to other people in the community

Visit the café with your friends and family



The photographer will be coming into school on Wednesday 24th October to take individual photographs. We will NOT be taking any sibling photographs in school this year, but we will be offering family photographs before and after school, on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to have a family photograph taken please look out for a letter next week, and return the slip by Friday 19th October. Thank you.

Lost Property

If your child has lost anything in school, lost property is kept in the glazed corridor. Ask when you collect your child at the end of the day if you would like to check the lost property.

Please make sure that all your child’s uniform, PE kit, glasses and anything else that they bring to school has their name on it. Then we can help to get it back to them if they lose it.


If your child would like to join one of the clubs collect a form from outside the office or from Mr Malooq.
