World Book Day, Red Nose Day, Whitehough, Parking

Friday 8th March 2018

Dear Parents/Carers,


World Book Day

Well done to everyone for the amazing effort to dress up to mark World Book Day yesterday. It was great to see the children dressed up as different characters and enjoying taking part in a wide range of fun activities related to reading and stories throughout the school.

The children have all been given a World Book Day voucher. This can be used to purchase a free book or can be deducted from a book of your choice and can be used in many book shops. See the back of the voucher for further details.


Red Nose Day – Friday 15th March

We will be raising money for Comic Relief next Friday.

We are asking the children to pay £1 to dress in red clothes for the day. (This can include variations of red, such as orange and pink!)

We are also selling red noses in school for £1.25 each. There will be a variety of designs, but the children will not be able to choose the design as they all come in a closed box. If you child wants to buy a red nose, they need to bring £1.25 and give this to their teacher. The child’s name will be written on the box and the nose needs to stay at home – not be brought into school, so that they don’t get lost or mixed up.


Year Six – Whitehough Trip

Year 6 children have had the chance to sign up for the annual residential trip. The final date for children to register for this, if they have not done already, is Monday 11th March. Mrs Iqbal would need the permission slip and a £30 deposit. After this time, no more bookings will be taken as final numbers are due to be submitted to Whitehough at 5pm on Monday.


West End In Schools Performance

The children will all be able to experience a theatre style show on Monday, as they watch a show called Jungle Bungle, as part of our World Book Day celebrations.



We have received a number of complaints about drivers parking in front of driveways and parking on Ainsdale Avenue. This road is not a public road and therefore only residents are allowed access to this street. I don’t want our school to have a bad reputation with local residents, so I would ask that all drivers park in a considerate and safe manner.


Thank you for your support,

Sarah Bell
