Due to the intense rain we have had, Pentagon Play have now confirmed they will start the equipment installation next week- likely to be Monday 28th November. We will keep you posted if there are further postponements. We hope the rain staves off a bit in the coming week. We want our new playground, ASAP!


Pentagon Play have now confirmed that they will be in school on Thursday 24th November to complete the playground markings. We suspect this may restrict access to lunch and break activities for the children, but the rear gate should still be accessible.


The Key Phase newsletters for KS1, Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 will be sent out on Friday 25th November. The newsletters will provide an update on forthcoming Christmas events for each Key Phase as well sharing what the children have been up to this term.


The school newsletter is due to go out at the end of the week. There will be an update on the Key Stage 2 playground which families will need to be aware of, as works will be undertaken during the school day to install new play equipment. We hope to minimise the disruption to routines as much as possible, but we are aware access to the KS2 playground may have restrictions depending on what part of the playground is being worked upon. We will keep you updated.


If there are any local events people would like to share coming up in the weeks leading up to Christmas, please contact the office at We are happy to add information on our Facebook pages and on the school newsletter.


Update about clubs and related events
As of the week beginning 14.11.22, there will be no netball or running club, which will both start back again, in February when the weather and light is better.

Football club (run by Mr Fowle) and Choir club (run by Mrs Soper) will continue for the remainder of this Autumn term, on Thursdays.

From Monday 21st onwards, Art club will start, (3.15-4.15), run by Miss Hawthorne. This will continue through into the Spring term. Letters will go out next week.

On Monday 28th November, Mr Lunn will be supporting the boy’s football tournament, after school. Well done to the team’s winning start at their last tournament (7th November) which Mr Fowle kindly supported! All four matches were won, and with a healthy goal difference for Wellsprings!!

As of Monday 5th December, Mr Lunn will run a Chess club from 3.15-4.15, into the Spring term. Letters will go out within the next week.

Just to update parents/carers of KS2 pupils, we have altered the planned KS2 Christmas Evening event due to clashes with local community events and staff availability. KS2 will now have their Christmas Evening on Thursday 15th December at Wellsprings School, the same day as the Christmas dinner. The school calendar has been adjusted to reflect this.

As a future note for those interested, there are further clubs planned in 2023. In the Spring term, Mr Jones will be running a Film Club on Tuesdays and Mrs Adams will offer a ‘Just Dance’/’Cosmic Yoga’ club for Year 2’s, on Monday after school. Mrs Fearn will be offering a Yoga club (Thursdays) to Year 6’s later in the Spring/Summer term. We will keep you updated of these, and any other clubs, in advance of any changes.


Our PTA meeting will be held in the school hall this Thursday (10th November), at 6.00 pm. Please come along and see what you can support our dedicated team and make a real difference to your children’s school!

All welcome!


We will be sending out an update on the school club and related sporting events, later this week. There will be changes to some after school clubs due to the winter hours starting to ‘steal’ our daylight.

Some additional clubs are being planned for this term and in the Spring term.

More information to come.


There will be a PTA meeting next week, on Thursday 10th November. We hope that as many parents and carers will attend to find out what the PTA do. We will also look at other our events that are planned for the year, with the opportunity to consider other new ways to support our school community and raise funds for the school.


Thank you to all the parents and carers who made it in to meet their children’s class teacher this week. It has been a while since we have had so many opportunities to meet up ‘face-to-face’ and we hope you found the meetings useful.

The newsletter goes out today with a reminder that the Harvest collection will end on Friday 4th November. As with previous years, our ‘Harvest haul’ will go to the Open Door charity, a local organisation who target help for young people who are homeless.

Just as a reminder, we start back after the half term break, on Monday 31st October- Hallowe’en! Have a lovely break.


The newsletter will be out this Friday. If there are any half term events you wish to publicise locally, please get in touch and we can signpost them to families.


Thank you to all the parents/carers who completed the questionnaire sent out last week. Already, we almost have 100 responses, and the feedback has been positive. There are some really useful comments noted as to how we could improve things, one of which is this regular blog on the school website to keep parents/carers informed. There will be feedback in our newsletter on Friday 21st October. As ever, we will send the newsletter via ParentMail, post/upload the information on our school website and on Facebook.

Just a reminder, most classes will be having their parent/carer consultations with children’s class teachers this week.

Hello! We will be using this blog on our school website in the future to keep you updated. It may be about reminding parents/carers about events coming up or making our school community aware of any last-minute changes. We hope you find it useful!
You will find all our newsletters here and the key dates for our calendar here.
