Week beginning Monday 22nd April 2024


It was wonderful to welcome the children back to school this week.  We hope they have enjoyed seeing their friends and returning to their learning.


Thank you to all those who helped to organise our Eid Fair on Friday and to those of you who baked for, or came along to support this event. With amazing food, henna tattoos, sweet cones and cupcakes, it was a wonderful occasion. We will shortly be uploading some photographs to the school gallery on our website and look forward to letting you know how much was raised. Congratulations to Mrs Brincat who won the amazing cake from the amazing Cake Canvas and to Mrs Bittar who won the afternoon tea for 2 at Lord Roberts on the Green. I would also like to thank the many organisations who sponsored this event free of charge including: The Med Kitchen, The Future Plate, Lord Roberts on the Green, Smoking Grill and Steak House, Dawat, Spice Village, My Inky Journal and Cake Canvas.


Congratulations to all those children who took part in the Mini Marathon yesterday in London. We are very proud of them all and hope you enjoyed this opportunity. Please do send any photographs taken to school via email so that we can celebrate the children’s achievements in the next newsletter. Please also encourage the children to bring their medals to school on Friday and we will congratulate them in our celebration assembly.


Next week, we are exploring Allergy Awareness week. In assembly on Monday, we will talk to the children about what an allergy is, how allergies can affect some people and what we can do to help keep those with allergies to stay safe. Please can we remind all parents that we do not allow items containing nuts in school to protect children in our school with severe allergies. Thank you.


On Tuesday, it is St. George’s day and those who are members of uniformed organisations (Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Cubs, Scouts, Beavers etc) are all invited to wear their uniforms to school should they wish to do so.


Also on Tuesday, Miss Headley- our maths co-ordinator, will be hosting a Calculations workshop for parents of children in Years R, 1 and 2. If you would like to find out more about how we teach maths at school, please do join us in the hall for a 9:15 start.


Soundstart resumes on 23rd April, so if you have a child in Year 4, please do make sure they bring their instruments.  Even number classes will be swimming next week.

There is a meeting for parents of children in Year 6 about the upcoming Isle of Wight visit on Thursday 25th April, after school. Please do join us in Class 12. We hope to begin at approximately 3:25. If required, children can wait in class 11 during the meeting, where they will be supervised by a member of staff.


On Friday, the PTA are hosting their next disco. Children in Reception will have their own disco this term, in the hall, with some party games from 2pm. All other Year group events will take place afterschool at the times advertised by the PTA.   Tickets are available on the PTA events page which can be found here The Hayes PTA ( Ticket sales close on the 23rd April at 8pm.  


Lastly, please can we encourage you once more to vote for our PTA in the ‘Movement for Good’ programme in which, as a registered charity, they are eligible to win a £1,000 prize. If successful, this money will go back into our school to benefit the children. The more nominations we receive the higher our chance of winning.
