Dear Parents/Carers, 

Please find this week’s updates and reminders below:

PSA Non-Uniform Day

A reminder this (Friday 1st December) is Non-uniform day. Children are invited to wear non-uniform in return for a goody bag to go towards the Christmas fair.

Christmas Productions

Just a reminder that we have space for just two adults per child for each of the Infant Christmas productions.   A reminder of the date for each show is at the bottom of this update. 

Reception children only – National Child Measurement Programme

The Sirona Nursing Team will be in School for the Reception children’s height & weight measurement and vision screening on Thursday 7th December.

If you are happy for your child to take part, then you do not need to do anything.  However, if you would prefer that your child is not included, you will need to   complete an opt out form (please see attached letter and form) and return to sirona.ns.schoolhealthreview@nhs.net
