Parents' Learning Afternoons
Thank you to all the parents who came into school to the summer KS1 and KS2 learning afternoons this week. We hope that you enjoyed working with your child/ren. The children were definitely excited about sharing their talents with you. We look forward to seeing you again next term.
Braiswick Photography visited our school in the Spring Term to take individual photographs of the children. As part of their 50th year celebrations they are donating a percentage of their profits to Cancer Research following each school visit. We are delighted to let you know that thanks to the photographs you bought,a donation of £83.50 has been made. Thank you!
Following the sale of Red Noses, and your donations, we raised an AMAZING £421 for Comic Relief on Friday 24th March, the official 'Red Nose Day'. Thank you for your generosity for such a worthwhile cause. For those of you that also brought in jokes on the day 'well done' - you had us in stitches!
Thank you to everyone who attended the Christmas events in school, it was lovely to see so many of you. We hope you feel as proud of the children and their performances as we do. The Christmas craft stalls and raffle raised almost £300! Thank you again for your ongoing support, it really is very much appreciated.
A MASSIVE thank you to everyone who supported our fundraising for Children in Need. Thanks to your generosity we raised £391. Well done everyone!

January 16 - Great to see parents attending a Family Learning course. They are looking at ways of supporting their children in maths and literacy - brilliant.
Cook and Eat autumn 2 - These children have cooked with their parents every Wednesday this half term. Well done the both parents and children. Your cooking smelt delicious.
A HUGE thanks from Comic Relief. Well Done!
Public Health services for children, young people and families – have your say
Give your views on what you would like to see from a service that will provide health and wellbeing support to Barnsley’s children, young people and families.
The council already provides public health services for 5-19 year olds. From 1 October 2015, we will also be responsible for the commissioning of public health services for children aged 0-5 years. This includes School Nursing, Health Visiting and the Family Nurse Partnership.
You may know these services as:
- health visitor
- school nurse
- family nurses working with young parents
- provision of Healthy Start vitamins
- national child measurement programme: weighing and measuring Reception Class and Year 6 children.
We plan to combine these services to meet the needs of our children, young people and families; these changes will come into effect from June 2016. Your feedback will be used to help us design this service; results may be shared with providers in order to inform the future service.
The closing date for this consultation is Monday 27 July 2015.
You can complete the survey online at www.barnsley.gov.uk/0-19 , or visit us at one of our drop in sessions:
