I am writing with a few more details about the family picnic next Thursday afternoon. (Please note that Nursery parents will receive separate information.)

The playground gates will open just after 1:00pm for you to find a spot on the field with your picnic, chairs, blankets, flags etc.. The children will come onto the playground at 1:15pm ready to perform some traditional songs. Some will be sang as a whole school and others in year groups. Can I please ask that while they are singing you remain on the field. If you do take photos/videos that include children that aren’t yours can I please ask that you don’t post any of them on social media for safeguarding reasons.

Once the children have finished singing they will be taken back into school to collect their coats and bags and will then be dismissed as usual onto the playgrounds. Please collect your child as you usually would and then return to the field for your picnic. Please indicate below which adult will be attending the picnic with your child (only 1 adult per child). If no adult can attend, school staff will supervise your child until 3:00pm. They are welcome to bring a ‘packed picnic’ with them to school.

There will be some stalls for you and your child to enjoy.

We are asking that the children come to school wearing either a red, white or blue tee-shirt with their normal school uniform trousers/skirt. No football shirts please.

It promises to be a lovely afternoon that will hopefully not be ‘rained off’!!

If you have any questions please do contact me at school.


Kind regards

Mrs Pyle
