We have enjoyed a very busy half-term in school with a number of children being able to go on school trips in the last few weeks.

This week we have been saying a fond farewell to our Year 6 children. We held a farewell festival  yesterday evening as part of our celebrations as well as a number of leavers assemblies for both Year 6 parents and all of the children within school, assisted by the lovely weather!

We look forward to the children’s return to us on Monday 6th September. Fortunately, it looks like good news for schools and we can plan with more confidence for a ‘normal’ return. You will have seen a lot in the news, but the headlines of the guidance were as follows;

  • ·Masks will no longer be needed

  • ‘Bubbles’ will no longer have to operate

  • Pupils will be able to mix with other year groups

  • Assemblies can resume

  • No need to stagger entry / exit times

The school day will return to the normal start and finish times in September. Classroom doors will open at 8.40am for all pupils and the first lesson will start at 8.50am. The school day will end as it used to – 3.10pm (KS1) and 3.15pm (KS2).

NMPAT Saturday Centres

NMPAT are excited to be relaunching Saturday Centres in September of 2021 (restrictions permitting). Attached an interactive PDF which allows the user to click on the Centre closest to them to find out more, as well as register online.

Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust is excited to be re-launching Saturday Centres in September 2021!

After a year of Virtual Centre, it is time to re-open our doors to our members from pre-lockdown, as well as whole new group of students!  We are delighted to be able to offer ALL students a FULLY FUNDED first term of activities (from September to Christmas) so there is nothing to stop you getting involved!

We have a team of staff excited to get back to a full morning of activities that we will design around the students at each Centre, ensuring everyone has something of interest to get involved with.

Registration is via an online form (please see PDF) where you can tell us which Centre you’d like to attend as well as a little bit about your interests.  We will then be in touch to confirm the finer details before the start of term in September.

If you’d like to have a look around your Centre, there will be an open morning from 10.00-11.00am on Saturday 11th September, with a full morning of activities starting on Saturday 18th September.

There will be NO CHARGE for your first term of activities.  Following your fully-subsidised first term, subscription for membership of the Centre for one term (where there are three terms in the year) is £80 for the full morning.

We are excited to get going again and hope to have you with us! Bring on September!
