Swim School over Easter

Sally Crathern who teaches swimming to Pre-Prep, operates a swim school from King Edward’s Witley where she will be running a four day intensive swimming course from April 3rd to 6th. This is for half an hour each morning, any time between 9.00 am and 11.00 am. This course is perfect for any children over the age of 4, from nervous non swimmers to strong club standard. The cost is £44 per child for the four days or £66 for the stronger swimmer doing a 45 minute class. Group sizes are small with teachers in the water with young/weak swimmers. The aim in to improve water confidence, learn new skills and improve on stroke technique. All teachers are DBS checked and have up to date life saving qualifications.

Uniform Reminder

Please could we kindly remind you about the following school uniform:

Hair accessories, including scrunchies, should be either burgundy or blue.
Any hair that is below the shoulder should be completely tied back.
Hair should not be dyed.
Children should not have coloured braids in their hair.
All earrings should be small plain studs.

Thank you for your support in enforcing that the children arrive to school in the correct uniform.

Bacon Butty Stall

We kindly ask that children do not bring food and hot drinks in to school buildings that have been purchased on Friday morning from the Bacon Butty stall. The food tends to be dropped along corridors and in classrooms and the hot drinks are a concern when being carried around the school – particularly to younger children. Thank you.

Primary Times – latest edition is found here.

Food and Drink in Chapel

We kindly ask that you do not bring food or drink into Chapel, thank you.

Cancellation of Fixtures

If fixtures are cancelled due to adverse weather, please be assured that we will notify you as soon as we are aware of the change.

Please can we remind you that the majority of the communications are sent via the parent portal on a Tuesday. Communications will vary for each child dependent on a variety of factors e.g. class, gender, sets. The Prep team sheet can be changed at any time therefore we encourage you to check the portal on a regular basis.
