Welcome to our Weekly Newsletter where we share relevant information with you about what has been happening here at Bracken Leas and events planned in future weeks.

Switching Off Car Engines

Parents are requested to please ensure you switch your engine off when parked/waiting around the vicinity of school to drop off or collect children. Although this is not a legal requirement in the Highway Code, it is a courtesy to others as well as being environmentally friendly. The safety and health of the children and families of Bracken Leas is very important to us and we would appreciate your support in respecting this request.

Pre Loved Uniform Collection & Tombola

FOBL would love your donations of preloved school uniform and suitable tombola items for their stall at the Brackley Scarecrow Festival on the 26th June. 

A trolley will be made available in the playground from Monday for you to put your donations into. 

As our uniform is evolving over the next year, we can only accept the following items;

  • Logo jumpers (although we can allow these for another year they will be replaced with V neck)
  • Logo PE tops
  • Summer dresses
