Parent/Carer Meetings

Thank you to all parents/carers who came to the meetings this week. It is great to have your continued support.


Reading Eggs

Any children attending reading eggs should wait in the playground until 8:30am when they will be collected by a member of staff.


Jeans for Genes

Friday 23rd September will be a non-school uniform day. Wear jeans and donate £1 to help change lives of children affected with a genetic disorder.


Music Lessons

Violin lessons take place on Monday afternoons, Piano on Tuesday mornings , Recorder on Wednesday mornings and Guitar on Friday mornings. Please make sure children bring their books and instruments in on the day of their lesson.


Wet Mornings

The rain this morning signalled the end of summer and led to some confusion about arrangements on a wet morning. Unfortunately there is no provision to enable children to wait inside. When it is raining, Breakfast Club will stay inside and early arrivals will need to wait under the shelters in the playground. Obviously space under these is limited so please don't arrive too early on a wet morning. We will review this arrangement going forward. Thank you.


School Journey - Year 6 only

Further to your letter of 20th June deposits for school journey must be paid this weekend. We need to finalise numbers on Mon-day and only children who have paid their deposit will be booked onto school journey.


Secondary Transfer – Year 6 only

Please make sure you complete the online application by Friday 31st October.

The forms can also be found on the Hollickwood website.

Please complete the forms this weekend so we can update our records accordingly. Thank you for your
