Newsletter April 5th 2019

It has been a very busy term and the children have been working really hard, as always! 

The Foundation Stage children have been busy learning about animals and had a great day at White Post Farm with the baby animals.

The Year 1 children have been learning about Superheroes, London and caves.  Their trip to the Nottingham Galleries of Justice and the caves inspired lots of creative work. 

The year 2 children had a great team-building day at Perlethorpe.  They have produced amazing artwork and stories based on the Iron Man story.

The whole school contributed to our lovely ‘Bridgford in Bloom’ display in the hall where you can also see lots of photographs of all the wonderful learning experiences the children have had in school.


We wish you all a safe and happy Easter!


Spring Concerts

Well done to the Foundation Stage and the Year 1 children on their fantastic singing and poetry in their concerts today.  All the children performed really well and the parents/carers and all the staff were, quite rightly, very proud of them all.  Thank you also to Mrs Flinn for providing the music for both concerts.


Thank you to all the parents/carers for attending the recent Parents’ Evenings.  We hope you found them useful and enjoyed looking at your children’s hard work and hearing how well they are progressing.  We hope you also felt informed about how to support your child at home.

As always, if you have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.



Payment for the Mini Marathon on Sunday 29th September is now available on ParentPay. Please see last week’s newsletter for full details. We are still looking for suggestions of good causes to raise money for - please email or if you would like to nominate a charity. 

Thank you very much


Website Leaflets and Community Page

We have a wide range of leaflets in the reception area at school offering extra-curricular activities, special offers at some attractions and holiday clubs.  Please have a look.  We have added some information to our Community Page as well:

  • Premier Camps new for Easter
  • Sprouts
  • The West Bridgford Soccer Coaching Club
  • Rock Steady










In response to feedback from parents/carers, we have set as many dates as possible for the year ahead. As far as possible, we will try to honour these dates.  However, please be aware that dates may have to be changed due to circumstances outside our control.
