Message for Reception parents - Dear Parents/Carers, On Monday 27th June, Reception children will be heading to Wingham Wildlife park for their school trip. This trip will link in nicely to the work we have completed around minibeasts and the different habitats that animals live it. It also ties in perfectly with our Term 6 Topic of Dinosaurs.
We will be leaving school at around 9.30 and returning to school around 2.45. The children will need to come in their school uniform, but please ensure they come dressed suitably for the weather on that day; sun cream and a hat if hot and welly boots with a rain coat if wet.
The children are welcome to bring their own packed lunch for the day or the school can provide one. Please indicate on the key survey form if you will be needing a school packed lunch, so we can let our school kitchen know.
If your child does not have a Wingham pass, the cost of the trip will be £16.50. If they do have a pass, they can enter for free if they bring their pass along on the day; therefore, the cost of the trip for these children will be £9.50. Please indicate on the key survey form if you have a pass for your child.
Finally, we will need a small handful of parent helpers on the day. If you are free to help, please e mail Mrs Cheshire on firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know. We only have space for 6 parents, so this will be done on a first come, first serve basis (there is no charge for parent helpers).

Calling All Persons Who Would Like to Give Back to the School Community!
You could be retired, working part time or a stay-at-home parent, we are looking for a number of volunteers who would like to drive our school minibus on a regular or ad-hoc basis for school swimming, school trips etc.
(Please note, this would not be a daily commitment.)
What do you need to do this?
The Right Driving License – if you passed your test and got your driving licence before 1 January 1997, you are likely to have a Category D1 licence. This allows you to drive a minibus with up to 16 passenger seats - but not for hire or reward.
A Volunteer DBS Certificate – this certificate means you can work with or alongside our children - our school will apply for this certificate and pay for it for you.
Confidence with Vehicle Checking – in order to drive minibus, daily checks are carried out and although it would not always be you carrying out the checks, it might be! Full familiarisation training will be given for this.
You can give as much or as little time to suit your diary.
If you are interested, please contact: email@example.com
