Ex Fern Hill Pupil Playing Football for England!
Jorja Fox has recently been selected for the England U15s training camps at St Georges Park and over half-term made her international debut against Wales U15s winning 7-0.
Jorja started playing football in the playground at Fern Hill school and has worked hard playing for local teams before being selected to play for Chelsea girls. Who knows what other future sports stars we could have practising their skills in the playground now!
Congratulations Jorja, we at Fern Hill are very proud of you!

We hope you enjoyed the half term break and your children have returned to school happy and refreshed for the busy term ahead.
As the colder weather is now upon us warm and coats are necessary. Can we remind you to please clearly name label coats and all items of school uniform so that we are able to return any mislaid items to you. Thank you.
Nut Free School
Just to remind all parents that we do have children in school with severe allergic reactions to nuts. Even touching an item that someone who has come into contact with nuts has touched can cause issues for these children. Therefore imperative that all packed lunches and snacks brought into school contain no trace of nuts. This includes sandwiches filled with Nutella chocolate spread & peanut butter, oaty bars, biscuits and cakes containing nuts and dried fruit mixes with nuts in. Please check your child's snacks before sending them in to school. Thank you.
Your children will be bringing their school photograph proofs home today.
The last date for accepting orders for photographs is next week, Friday 10th November. If you have any queries regarding your school photo's or an order, please contact Kans firstname.lastname@example.org
The Team Points winners this week is Kingston & Richmond as it's a draw!
