Note from Mr Higginbottom

Hello! Just a quick update for you this week. We've updated the key dates section below to include key events like the school photographer in school next year.

Thank you so much for supporting the Children in Need day on Friday. It was fabulous to see so many creative outfits for the day! If you were able to make a donation to the Trust JustGiving page, thank you - your contribution is really appreciated.

We are reviewing the planned key stage 2 Christmas event in Church and will be in touch with further details. We want this event to happen to allow children and families to celebrate Christmas, but we must ensure that it can go ahead safely. More details next week.

The class with the highest attendance this week was Y3/4M with 98.9% - well done!

Important Upcoming Dates

School Christmas Dinner for Children will be on Wednesday 8th December. Children can wear a Christmas Jumper on this day if they wish.

The Key Stage 2 Christmas Service in Church will take place on the afternoon of Friday 10th December, commencing at 2pm. We are reviewing this event and will send more information soon.

Please note that we have an additional TWO INSET days to be taken during the rest of the academic year which are yet to be decided. We will inform you of these with plenty of notice.

Thank you for your continued support of our school and for supporting your child by ensuring they're at school on time and they read at least 4 times each week. If you would like to discuss any aspect of your child's time in school you can email enquiries@sqp.wwpat.org, find me on ClassDojo or chat to me at the start or end of the school day.

At Swinton Queen Primary School, children are aspirational, courageous and inquisitive; respectful of all.
