The fair will be open in the playground from 3.30- 4.00pm but there will also be the opportunity for your child to browse and buy books during the school day if they cannot come after school.
The more books we sell, the more free books we will get for our school: if we sell £1,000 of books we will get £600 of free books for the school!
We look forward to seeing you there,

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you Eid Mubarak in preparation for the end of the week. As children will be celebrating with families, they are entitled to take one day off school if Eid is to fall on Friday. If Eid falls on Saturday children will be expected to attend as normal. Those children who do not celebrate Eid will be expected to attend school as normal too. Therefore, any days taken outside of Eid will be classed as unauthorised. Even though Eid will be an authorised absence for one day, It will still be recorded as an absence and will be reflected in your child's attendance figure. However, this will not prevent your child from receiving any attendance incentives that they are entitled to.
On Monday 18thJune 2018, we will be celebrating Eid in school. Children are welcome to come dressed in their Eid clothes. In the afternoon, children will be having parties in class and can bring food in with them for their celebration's. Please ensure that any food that your child brings into school is shop bought and in its original packaging for allergy purposes.
We look forward to sharing the celebration of Eid across the school and providing the children with an opportunity to celebrate together with staff and children alike.
I am sure you will join us in encouraging your child to take part and enjoy their day.

We understand how important Ramadan and Eid is to everyone who it involves. However, school is still open as usual and all children are expected to attend as normal.
We appreciate that Ramadan involves some very late nights so early mornings may be difficult for some but we do expect that all children will be in school on time every day.
Children are allowed one day of school absence for Eid. The government guidance states:
Schools must treat absence as authorised when it is due to religious observance. The day must be exclusively set apart for religious observance by the religious body to which the parents belong. Where necessary, schools should seek advice from the parents’ religious body about whether it has set the day apart for religious observance.
Therefore, any days taken either side of Eid will be classed as unauthorised. Even though Eid will be an authorised absence for one day, it will still be recorded as an absence and will be reflected in your child’s attendance figure.
We wish you a happy and healthy month of Ramadan and thank you for your continuing support.
