News sheet 8th July 2022




The glorious hot weather looks set to stay with us for the next week or so. Please do make sure that your child has their water bottle with them every day and that you have applied sun screen to any exposed areas. Please also send your child to school with a cap (named!) if you have one.


Please feel free to send your child to school in their PE kit (white t shirt and Navy shorts) if you think they would feel cooler like this.

Heart of Hillbourne


The small team of parents who make up the Heart of Hillbourne are desperately seeking new support. This year, the team has done a marvellous job this year making money to help us buy play equipment and books. If you have some time and would like to help to support the school, please speak to Mrs Middleton in the office or let Ms Roderick or Mr Claxton know on the gate.


The children greatly enjoy the raffles, cake sales and ice cream events hosted by the team and it would be very sad if these could not continue!
