Dear Parent/Carer                                        

Friday 16th November is Children in Need Day and we will be wearing uniform but this can be jazzed up with spots and Children in Need accessories. We would also like to hold a cake sale at morning break time. Any donations of cakes will be greatly received and the children will need to bring a donation of 50p to purchase a cake. Also over the week School Council will be selling some Children in Need accessories. We will be chalking a big picture of Pudsey on the day with the aim of covering it in one and two pence pieces, so any loose coins will be welcome on the day.

On Wednesday 28th November M&Co will be holding a Fashion Show in their Sleaford Store with proceeds in support of Cancer Research.  This is the chosen charity of Mrs Bird who is a valuable member of the school staff and, as you may know, has recently been diagnosed herself.  The school would like to support this by selling tickets at £5 each, there will be a 25% discount on purchases made in the store on the night. Tickets are limited to 50 so if you would like to reserve one please pop into the office with your £5.  We would gratefully appreciate your support and if you would like to donate any raffle prizes, please pop them into the office where they will also be gratefully received.  Thank you.

Menus for weeks commencing Monday 19 November and Monday 26 November will be available to order on Wisepay from late afternoon today 8 November.  Cut-off dates for orders are 9 am Monday 12 and Monday 19 November respectively.  Please note orders cannot be placed after the cut-off date/time.   

Finally last Thursday Mrs Bell and I attended the Lincolnshire Sports Awards and were presented with the Active School of the year award for Lincolnshire. We are very proud to accept this award and will be celebrating it with our school community soon (Pictures on Twitter). The school works hard as do our parents and children to promote sport so well done to all.

Yours sincerely
