Twelve Days Of Christmas Reading - Reminder

The Christmas break is upon us, and it may be time to think about catching up on some reading.  Relax, read and recharge over the break. Click here for a link to a collection of twelve recommended titles that will inspire, entertain and enthral as they appeal to pupils and adults of all ages.

Mostly published within the last twelve months, they are an opportunity to sample new authors, stories and genres.

Lost Property - Reminder

We currently have a terrific amount of both named/initialled sports kit and many other unnamed items in lost property.  Could you please reiterate to your child that they need to check the lost property box in the changing rooms and at the Student Hub daily if they have a missing item. 

As parents, we are only too aware of the cost of sending children into school with a winter coat or any non-school uniform item and hope that items will not be lost around school during the day.  To help us help you, can we please ask that you clearly name all items. We can then do our best to ensure that named items are returned to their owners.  

Many thanks for your help and if you need any further assistance please email

Winter Bugs - Reminder

It's that time of year again - turkey, tinsel, and mince pies.  Unfortunately it's also flu season and the winter bugs are in abundance.

If you and your children are unlucky enough to pick up something please do let us know be emailing or calling 01926 634214. There are members of our Princethorpe community who are more susceptible to infections and it would be very useful if we are aware of any bugs which are a bit more serious than the common cold "doing the rounds". 

In line with guidance from Department of Health if your son/daughter has any vomiting or diarrhoea please ensure they stay off school for 48 hours after the last episode

In addition, if your child is brought into school with an injury i.e. on crutches or with an arm in a sling/plaster, please ensure they report to the Student Hub before attending classes, so that the school nurses can see them for a health and safety assessment and can give any extra support required.

On behalf of myself and Mrs Sally Ritchie, School Nurse, we wish you all a very happy and healthy Christmas.
