Codsall Cricket Club (22.04.2021)

Codsall Cricket Club currently hold Friday night training sessions, for both boys and girls, aged between 5 and 15 years.  In addition to their normal Friday night training, they are running two ECB initiatives - All Stars Cricket and Dynamos Cricket.  For more information on these, please see the attachments below.

Tik Tok (22.04.2021)

Please be mindful to always supervise your children/young people should they access Tik Tok or other video sharing platforms.  We are aware that there may be some sinister, violent and sexually motivated videos or news being shared and discussed online and we want parents to be aware of the need to ensure that their children are not exposed to any harm or frightened.

Updated After-School Activities List - Summer Term 2021 (21.04.21)

There have been some minor amendments to the after-school clubs able to be offered for the Summer Term.  Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the Tuesday Year 3 Cricket Club and the Thursday Year 2 Multi-Sports Club as there were not enough children booked on which made the clubs unviable.

We also need to separate the Friday Year 3 & 4 Football Club due to staffing issues.  Year 4 Football Club will continue on Fridays and Year 3 Football Club will  now take place on Thursdays from 3:30 - 4:30pm.  

If your child wishes to take part in the Year 3 or Year 4 Football clubs (or other clubs on offer) there are still places available.  Please book via your ParentPay account or contact the school office if entitled to a free club through Pupil Premium.

Sun Hats and Sun Cream (19.04.2021)

Now that it is starting to warm up a little, please do send children to school with named sun hats and administer 8 hour (or longer) sunscreen to protect your child from UV rays through the day. We are mindful of not letting the children stay in direct sunlight on very hot days, but naturally the Summer Term brings lots of outdoor activities that we want the children to enjoy safely and comfortably.

Thanks

Great work Isabella! (19.04.2021)

 

A big well done to Isabella from 1R who walked 12 miles in one day as part of her sponsored walk efforts!   Isabella started in Codsall walked to Perton through Pattingham and also took in Trescott, Castlecroft, Compton and Tettenhall before heading back to Codsall.    Isabella was able to see so much wildlife and countryside along the way.  I think you will all agree this is a phenomenal achievement for such a little one!  

Plant donations (19.04.2021)

For our Year 1 Science topic at school we will be growing lots of plants for a vegetable garden, does any one have little plant plants that they would be willing to gift us to save us buying any?

We would also love any vegetable seeds that people have that they are not going to use. 

Thanks

Sponsored Walk - Payment options (19.04.21)

Children were invited to take part in a Sponsored Walkathon over the Easter holiday to raise money for our new Forest School provision run by Mrs Lowe from September 2021. 

Parents have enquired if they can pay their sponsor money online and a Payment Item has now been set up on Parentpay to assist parents i.e. 'Sponsored Walk - Easter 2021'.  It is still fine to send in the cash but online payments would be our preferred method of payment.

Please pay in your sponsor money via your child's ParentPay account by Friday 7th May 2021 by overtyping the £1.00 default payment with the total amount raised and returning your child's sponsor form to school indicating if cash is enclosed or how much has been paid on parentpay. 

Thank you for your support with this activity and to those parents who have already sent in their child's sponsor money.

 

 

Think 111 (17.04.2021)

If you or your child has an urgent but non-life-threatening medical need, make sure you use NHS 111 first rather than going straight to A&E. If you do need urgent care, then NHS 111 can now book you in to be seen quickly and safely in A&E.

NHS 111 is also able to direct patients to or book an appointment at Urgent Treatment Centres, GP surgeries, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics.

Contacting NHS 111 first will also help the NHS to keep you safe by maintaining social distancing and ensure that you receive the right care in the right place, in a more timely and safe way. However, you should still dial 999 if you have a life-threatening illness or injury.

Just think 111 first. When you think you need A&E, contact NHS 111 by phone or online.

Watch Dr Zia Din talk about how the 111 First service works.

This scheme is completelyfree of charge for eligible families. Funding for this scheme comes from central government grants..

Families will need to visit our page on the Staffordshire Weband choose the option they want installed in their home, and then make the application.

A member of the Staffordshire Warmer Homes team at E.ON will then be in contact to progress their application.

Please pass this information onto families at your school who you think could benefit.

Self Soothe Kits (01.04.2021)

Bilbrook Initiatives Hub is a community group that delivers many projects that are funded for people of all ages within Bilbrook and Codsall.
 
Their latest project is helping people of all ages, help themselves with emotional regulation, helping with any anxious feelings and can keep the mind active if feeling lonely or isolated.
 
The Self Soothe Kits are age appropriate: 
5-10

And contain a variety of sensory based activities which the user can self-select to help with how they are feeling.
 
The kits are designed as starter kits and come with an advice sheet on how best to use and expand.  The kits have been funded by several sources, which means we do have a limited supply.  However,  they are free and available for those living in Bilbrook or Codsall.   Please see attached with information.

RG Parent Arrivals (01.04.2021)

RG class parents, please wait in the middle of playground in the morning and not by the canopy shed, this gives Year 4 children and staff the space needed to line up and come into school maintaining social distancing. Miss Griffiths will then signal when he door is open for you to line up for arrival. 

Well done Carys - monthly total! (31.03.2021)

A huge well done to Carys in Year 2 who has continued baking with Mom this month and now amassed an amazing £237.24 for her Bowel Cancer charity.   We are all so proud of her work!

Parking And Easter Bonnet Parades (31.03.2021)

Last night I was called out to the junction of Walton Gardens and Chillington Dr to look at the parking situation which included vehicles parked on the side garden to a property and double parking obstructing vehicle access up Walton Gardens.

As the resident rightly said the parking situation meant that emergency vehicles would not be able to access the school or residents, should there be a need for them to.

Please do think carefully about parking safely and considerately around the school and be mindful of not double parking when coming to collect pupils or coming along to Easter Bonnet parades.

Thanks for your help.

Royal Mail Design A Stamp Competition (31.03.2021)

We will be entering the Royal Mail Design A Stamp Competition after the Easter holidays.  If you DO NOT want your child's work to be submitted to the competition for any reason please advise your child's class teacher.   They can still create a design, but we will not enter it into the competition.   We propose to create a display of entries not submitted in school for us all to enjoy anyway!    Please read the attached letter to find out what information will need to be submitted.

Contact tracing over Easter holidays (30.03.2021)

To support the NHS Test and Trace process, school staff are available for the first 6 days of the Easter holiday to fulfil necessary contact tracing responsibilities. This means as St Nicholas children will have last had face to face contact on Thursday 1 April, the school should remain available for contact tracing purposes up to and including Wednesday 7 April. 

Parents should inform school of a positive case if either symptoms or a positive home LFD test occurred within 2 days of them being at their education setting. Where this is the case, the school is asked to assist in identifying close contacts and advising self-isolation, as the individual may have been infectious whilst in their education setting.

Where symptoms or a positive home LFD test occurred more than 2 days since the person was last at school, this does not need to be reported to school and contact tracing by the education setting is not required. Where this is the case, staff, students, parents and carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace.

Good Friday Workshop Online from St Nics Church (30.03.2021)

Come and join in with some fun, crafts, and story on Friday 2nd April at 10am on St. Nicholas Church YouTube Channel.
Looking forward to see you all as we count down to Easter Day!
