The School Photographer will be in school on Wednesday 16th November.

If your child has a school sweatshirt or polo shirt please could you
ensure they are wearing it on Wednesday.

The School Christmas Fair will be on Saturday 3rd December from 12 noon. Please do come along to support the Friends of Manor Green. The school fairs are the biggest fundraising activity for both the schools. So that we have plenty of items to sell at the fair we will be collecting on the following dates in exchange for your child not having to wear school uniform –

  • Friday 25th November – Bottles, Toiletries and unwanted gifts
  • Friday 2nd December – Chocolate (for the Chocolate tombola) and CAKES!!!

In addition please can you make up some jars of sweets and send them in at any time before the fair. Thank you.

The final tally is in for the Welly Walk. Between us we have raised an amazing £780.60!!! Thank you all so much for your generosity and support.

We have recently started using a new computer based assessment system for the children called Onwards and Upwards. It has been specially made for special needs schools. The children’s progress and achievement is recorded electronically alongside their special educational needs details. This means we can look at how well the children are doing and what we could do to help them achieve even more. Cheryl Gallon is co-ordinating the implementation of this new system and will keep you updated.

Children in Need day is next Friday 18th November. The children can come to school dressed either in their pyjamas or in spotty clothes – or even better, combine the two with spotty pyjamas!! We will have some merchandise for sale and will be asking for a donation to the charity.
