Newsletter 13 – Summer Term 16th July 2015
How quickly time passes and already we have reached the end of another very busy and rewarding year. I would like to thank all our families and friends for supporting school in so many different ways. We are very proud of the children and know that they will continue to shine as they continue their learning in our school or in the juniors.
On a personal note, the staff and I would like to offer our sincere gratitude to you for the kind gifts, cards and messages of thanks we have received. We appreciate the time it has taken to do this at what we know is a very busy time of year.
The staff have been working hard getting to know their new classes and look forward to the exciting things which have been planned for the coming year. Until then, we wish you a long and restful summer with plenty of sunshine and happiness.

School closes at the earlier time of 2.30pm tomorrow and resumes after the summer holidays on Wednesday September 2nd at the usual time.

A slice of Fun
Rotherham Borough Council have organised several events designed to keep you and your children entertained during the summer break. For more information visit or view the poster which can be viewed on the school notice board outside main reception.
Reading Books
Please remember to have a look in book bags, under beds and inside cupboards to see if you have any guided reading or gold sticker books hiding anywhere at home? There is be a box provided in main reception for you to drop them in should you find any. Thank you
Please make sure that all items of clothing, bags and shoes are taken home at the end of term. Also, all items of lost property will be placed on the stage in the main hall tomorrow. Any unclaimed items will be taken to the recycle centre.
FABSS Match Funding Reminder
FABSS – Do you work for a company who runs a Match Funding Scheme?
Match funding or match giving is money for very little work. FABSS could be the recipient of extra cash for little additional effort. Match funding is a really easy way to increase our fundraising and can add as much as £1000 to the takings of one of our events. There are many employers who may match fund and a list is available on the school notice board. If you are able to help us in this way, please let us know and someone from FABSS will discuss this with you.
Fabss would also like to thank parents, family and friends who have helped with their fundraising efforts. There are already events being planned for the next school year and we look forward to your continued support.
