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.

Christmas at Bracken Leas

Here is a schedule of activities and events for next couple of weeks. This has been updated with further information from FOBL and Mrs Harwood this week.

Brackley Elves Festive Hampers

We wanted to share this message with you, received from Jacky at St Rumbold’s Court. A big thank- you from us to all of the children from both Bracken Leas and Stepping Stones who’s contributions have been very gratefully received. In total more than 40 hampers have been donated by local schools and pre-schools. This has been a phenomenal achievement and would not have been possible without your support.

A Message From St Rumbold’s Court

I wondered if you would pass this message to all the children, parents, staff and organisers. We staff at St Rumbolds would like to say a huge thank you to all of you. We had a delighted and very surprised group of residents and some happy tears too. I want you all to know that every single resident has been in touch with our office to thank all the children and their families. Not every resident is able to write a card but if you did not get one consider this message big big thanks from those who cannot write back. Each staff member also got gifted a couple of goodies each and everyone was deeply moved by what special children we have in our town ❤️


Waterbottles, PE Kits & Lunches

As the number of Covid cases is unfortunately on the rise, we need to minimise the contact our staff in the school office have with items belonging to the children.

Please can you ensure that packed lunches, PE bags, water bottles etc come to school with your child/children.
