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.

Poppy Appeal 2020

Please check your email for information about the Poppy Appeal. We will be collecting in school during the first week back after half term. Year groups are asked to bring in their donations as follows;

Monday 2nd November – Early Years

Tuesday 3rd November – Year 1 & 2

Wednesday 4th November – Year 3 & 4

Thursday 5th November – Year 5 & 6

Please ensure ALL donations are in a named envelope stating what you would like.

Juniper House are asking if the local Brackley and surrounding community could help residents to create a remembrance memorial display at Juniper House Care Home. Filling the home and exterior with poppies made by our community. These can be painted, sewn or made from recycled bottles! We don’t mind how you choose to make them, let your creativity run wild. Please drop any poppy donations to our reception foyer as soon as you’ve finished them so we can start creating the display. Thank you.

Children in Need 2020

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.

Dentalcare Brackley

Dentalcare Brackley, based in Bridge Street, Brackley, are asking for contributions to their Children’s Halloween Art Display. If your child would like to take part you can drop their work into a designated box which will be left by the practice front door before 31st October.
