Dear Parents

Fruit Snack

Can we please remind all parents/carers that the snack for the fruit bowl should be fruit or plain breadsticks/crackers only.

Applications for Primary School

You should now have received a guide on how to apply for your child’s school place online.  You can apply now and the applications deadline is 15th January 2019.  For further information visit or contact your local school.


Our Christmas Fayre is fast approaching (2 weeks).  Donations and volunteer signup sheets are now displayed in the cloakroom.  Paper plates will be coming home this week ready for your baked goods for the cake stall.

Parent Consultations

Parent consultations for the Daisy room are taking place this week.  There are sign-up sheets with your keyworker, please make sure you sign up if you haven’t already.

Ark Farm

We will be having a visit from Ark Farm small animal encounter on Wednesday, the children will have the opportunity to meet a selection of small animals.  Such as chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, a pygmy hedgehog, a leopard tortoise, an owl, sugar gliders and at least one lovely dog.


Helen Alderton has taken the individual photographs and we are expecting proofs back soon.

Arbury Carnival

The last carnival was a huge success once again.  Unfortunately some of the current committee members have resigned this year, so in order for the Carnival to go ahead in 2019 more people willing to become committee members are needed. This is a voluntary role and a drop in recruitment meeting will take place at the Arbury Community centre on Saturday 24th November from 1-4pm, please attend if you would like to get involved.
