In addition to this, the St. Andrews PTFA would welcome any donations of toys, cuddly toys, tins or bottles for the fete. If any parent wishes to help out on the day of the fete please contact Mrs Morgan, Reception teacher / PTA.

Colorfoto - Year 6 Leavers Photos and Sports Teams

The proofs from these photos should be available by the end of this week - as soon as we receive them we will send them home with the pupils.

Please return all photo orders by Monday 11th July at the latest.

Collection of children from school

Please can we remind parents that all pupils from Nursery to Year 4 must be collected by a named adult (this adult must be on the emergency contact list). If an older brother or sister is collecting a pupil, they must be over 14 years of age and parents must sign a permission slip for this to happen. These permission slips are available from either office.

If someone different is collecting your child please inform the school in advance - we are having quite a few children being collected by unknown people which results in us having to phone parents for permission before we can release pupils from school.

These procedures are in place to ensure all pupils stay safe - thank you for your cooperation in following the procedures.

Water Bottles

We have issued every child in the school with a St. Andrews water bottle - this is to encourage pupils to drink plenty of water each day to help keep brains active and bodies rehydrated.

Please ensure your child brings this bottle to school each day. Replacement lids and new bottles are available for a small cost from the main office.

Lost items of clothing

Please can parents ensure all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your childs name.

We have a number of unidentified items - especially coats in school. If you think you may have lost a coat please see your childs teacher at the end of the day.

We have a pupil who has lost a coat in Nursery / Breakfast Club - please can you check your coats to ensure you have the correct one. Please return any coats mistakenly taken so we can try and return items to owners.
