Individual School Photos – Wednesday 21st October

The school photographer will be with us next Wednesday for individual photos. We will be holding a further session on Monday 2nd November for Year 1 children and any others that are absent on the 21st. Unfortunately, due to the virus and the need to keep bubbles intact within the school environment there will be no sibling photos this year.

Christmas Cards 2020 – FOBL School Fundraising

The deadline for your Christmas Cards is fast approaching. Please ensure that you have handed in your template to your class teacher by Wednesday 21st October.

Year 1 may hand in their templates via the school office by the deadline

Please take a look at our Early Years Virtual Tour and like/share with your friends via our social media.

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. Christmas card templates should also be sent in to school this way too unless you have a child in Year 1. For Year 1 only, please drop your completed templates into the school office. Your support on this is greatly appreciated.
