Red Nose Day will be on Friday 19th March this year. We will be keeping it simple by wearing something red on the day for a £1 donation to Comic Relief. Children will be allowed to wear their own clothes, preferably with a red theme (even if the only red item is a pair of socks!).
We will be collecting donations at the front of the school so children can drop their donations off with the teachers on the way into school.
The Youth Sports Trust are starting a new After School Club, completely virtually! The club will be led by Athlete Mentors from different backgrounds, abilities and sports. The first session will take place on Thursday 12 November at 5pm, with the world’s number one female inline skater and ten times British Champion, Jenna Downing!
Every day at 5pm from 16 November until 18 December, children and young people can join in with the live broadcast for free on our YouTube channel.
The different daily themes are below:
A letter from The Bucks School Nurse Team regarding this year's flu vaccinations.
The Buckinghamshire Immunisation Team has moved to on-line consent for all school immunisations.
Please click on the letter to download, detailing all the relevant links required. Please ensure that you complete your child’s form as soon as possible, and at the latest by the date indicated.
You are requested to complete a form to either consent OR decline this immunisation.
This year, if you or a member of your household are on the NHS Shielded Patients list and the whole household attends the GP surgery for flu vaccination, please ensure that you complete a consent form declining the immunisation at school indicating that your child has been vaccinated at the surgery.

As we approach another lockdown it is essential that we protect our community and we need your help to do this.
Time: Please pick up and drop off at the allocated times. We will do our best to bring siblings out to you so that you are not waiting around. Ideally, we want to get into the position that you come and go quickly from the school site so that you are not mixing with others. If your child walks to school on their own please ensure that they arrive at the correct time, and not early so that they can socialise with their friends.
Face: We would encourage you to wear a face mask. If you need to talk to a member of staff, please call the school office and we will get back to you as quickly as we can.
Space: Please give each other space! Remember, you should only be mixing with one other person from another household from Thursday. So therefore, school drop off and collection times are not to be seen as a social occasion.
Change of Circumstances
As we continue to deal with the pandemic it may be that your circumstances change. If you are struggling with money please let us know and we may be able to provide some food parcels, or you may qualify for free school meals. These are very difficult times and there is no shame in asking for help if you need it.
The weather is getting cooler, but, as with every school in the country, we continue to follow Government guidance by having our doors and windows open to provide the ventilation needed to reduce transmission of the virus.
I know that you will have understandable concerns about the impact of this upon your children. In order to help keep them warm, our approach to school uniform is going to change. This will be effective from Monday 9th November. You may choose to send your children to school in one of the following:
