Party for Piseth-Leng

I hope your children will be able to come to tonight’s Disco organised by Global Voice in order to raise money for our very own Edukid, Piseth Leng. Piseth lives just outside Phnom Penh, Cambodia, in chronic poverty. Anything we help raise this evening will help Edukid pay for his school unform, books, equipment and school fees – and of course in turn give him a much brighter future.

The Disco runs from 5:30 – 7pm and will be DJ’d by Siobhan and Zoe. Global Voice will be selling Tuck Shop and Raffle throughout the evening. Entry is £2 per child and Reception and Preschool children must be accompanied in the hall by a responsible adult. If you’re dropping your child off, please ensure you leave a phone number with the adults on the Door and if possible, take your child’s coat away with you so that cloakrooms don’t get too congested.

Thank you for your support – Globel Voice will be writing in next week’s Newsletter to say how much they have managed to raise.

Y5/6 Sports

I hope your child enjoyed visiting Atlantic Academy this week to take part in the Year 5/6 Sports event. Congratulations to Mrs Phelps’ group who won the competition and have a rather nice trophy waiting for presentation. It will be presented in Assembly on Monday (There was no assembly today in order for the Disco to be set up)

London Residential

Next weekend, I will be travelling to London to complete the security checks and risk assessments for the forthcoming Year 5 residential to the Capital. Please remember that the Information Meeting about the residential will be held straight after school on Monday 3rd February in the Hall. Parents and children are both welcome to come along, listen to the presentation and ask any questions about the visit. The meeting should be no more than an hour.

Vet’s Visit

On Tuesday next week, Cranford Class will be enjoying a guided tour of Witten Park Vets in Bideford. This will be the culmination of their learning about Pets and promises to be very exciting and interesting. Huge thanks to the parents who are volunteering to provide transport – this visit wouldn’t be possible without your support.


Our PCSOs visited the village at the end of the day on Tuesday to check on parking around the school. We were delighted that they reported a vast improvement in the situation since their last visit – thank you. Both officers will be coming back for further visits over the coming weeks.
