There is a local Charity, run by mums in Shrewsbury, called Bags of Kindness. They can provide school shoes, trainers and toddler shoes to parents. They are second hand shoes in very good condition, with lots of life left, that have been donated at various shoe shops around town. Parents can message Bags of Kindness on their Facebook page or use the link below. Please state the type of shoe/trainer you require and the size.
Congratulations everyone! 🥳

It has been a great first week back, with a nearly full school and new pupils joining us, (Elm Class winning the attendance award with 100%) and great weather. Spring is definitely with us and we are also starting to see “green-shoot” opportunities for “normal” activities to resume.
You will be receiving invitations to this term’s Parents/Carers Consultation Evenings very shortly.These are always crucial in sharing how home and school can support the best outcomes for the pupils. With all the damage caused by COVID to learning they are even more important. They will be held using the Teams virtual platform and each session will be 10 minutes long. The good news is that they cannot over-run as they are virtual. We hope that the fact you are able to access them from home means that they will be easier for you to attend.
We have planned for the Year 6 end of term treat, Assembly and Leaver’s Hoodies and the Arthog Residential on the Welsh Coast has a stronger chance of happening, though it may be very close to the 7th June start date that it is confirmed.
The School is proud to have been selected as one of the National Nature Friendly Schools. A scheme designed to use the outside environment to help children be less anxious and more successful. The County Mental Health Team have started their work supporting children and groups in school. Our Academic Mentors and our Tutor are working with lots of pupils to help ensure that they minimise the gaps in their learning ,caused by COVID. Please ensure your children attend as this is such a marvellous one -off opportunity
The positives we are seeing must not let us become complacent about the safety measures that we have established to keep everyone safe.
- 2 metres from people not in your bubble, especially when leaving the playground
- only 1 adult per household
- Not to arrive at school until 8.40 am
We are looking forward to all that the children can and will achieve this term and the hope that the continued vaccinations will further allow us to resume “normal” working.
Here are some of this week’s winners, congratulations! 🥳
Our current play time supervision is that each class has a zone to use during breaks and lunchtimes. These zones rotate on a weekly basis, ensuring that all outside equipment is kept safe and only used by one class at a time. We will now be opening the new metal climbing equipment to children during breaks and lunchtimes.
Please can we ask that you do not allow your child to use the playground equipment afterschool. When your child has been collected, you must leave the premise. This helps ensure we can allow the children to play on the equipment during school time, maintaining Covid security. If this does occur, unfortunately, we will have to stop the use of the play equipment altogether and the area will be taped off again.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
