Children return to school
If your child missed their Flu Vaccination (Nasal Spray) at school last month, there will be a final opportunity to receive it at a community walk-in clinic being held on Monday 20th December at Tolworth Recreation Centre. Please see the letter from the Healthcare Immunisation Team attached below for further information.
If you are a volunteer reader or regularly help in the classroom, please check with your class teacher to confirm if you are needed in school next week. Timetables tend to change in the last week of term, especially at this festive time of year! Thank you for your continuing support – it is greatly appreciated by all staff and the children you work with

Clubs Schedule Spring Term 2022
Thank you to all the families who ordered their child's school photograph. The orders have arrived and will be sent home today.
If you have any queries, please contact our school photographer, Kans Bahara, directly on 07931 593 169.
Thank you so much to everyone who supported Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day today - the children looked fabulous in their Christmassy knits! We’ve just reached our fundraising goal of £600!
There’s still time to donate via our JustGiving page – it will be available until the end of term.
Class Christmas Party Day
Thursday 16th December is the Class Christmas Party day for children in Reception through to Year 6. It's a mufti day and the children may wear party clothes to school if they wish. They will need a NUT-FREE party packed lunch.
Please note that there will be NO school lunches served on this day – the children will have a party lunch together in their classrooms.
If you have ordered a school lunch via ParentPay for this day, your order will be cancelled and, if your child is in Year 3 or above, your account credited.
Although we won’t be able to welcome parents into the classroom to support us with the parties, we would be very grateful for your help in providing festive tableware (crackers, tablecloths, plates, cups and other table decorations) and non-perishable, pre-packaged party food (party rings, individually wrapped biscuits/cakes, multipack of crisps, squash etc.) for your class. Your Class Rep will have been in touch to arrange this.
