Pilsley C of E School

Dear Parents and Carers,


Goodbye to Illia

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Illia today as he makes his journey back to Ukraine this weekend to return to his family. Illia has made phenomenal progress with his English since starting at Pilsley eighteen months ago and he has relished all the opportunities which have been offered to him, whilst living here on the estate. We will all miss him dearly and hope that both him and his family stay safe, happy and well. Thank you to all those who contributed to Illia's memory book via his sponsor Claire, we really appreciate it and it will be a lovely thing for Illia to keep and to cherish his memories of living here in the UK.


Visit from Sarah Dines, MP

The junior children met with Sarah Dines, MP this afternoon when she came to visit us and have a tour of the school. The children asked her lots of questions about her work and where she lived in London but the stories Sarah told about Larry the cat who lives at Number 10, really captured the children's interests more than anything else! We hope to arrange a visit to the Houses of Parliament in the near future.  

Infant trip on Monday

The infants are really looking forward to their day at Chatsworth on Monday. Please do ensure they are wrapped up warm as the weather looks set to stay cold. The children are going down to Chatsworth on the school bus and will be back at school in time for the end of the day.


Christmas jumper day

A reminder that we are having a non-uniform day next Friday with a theme of 'Wear something Christmassy'. There will be an opportunity to make a donation for 'Save the Children' on Parent Pay, if you would like to. 


PTA disco 

A reminder that the PTA Christmas disco takes place next Friday (8th December) at the Cavendish Hall. There is information attached to this email regarding the purchase of tickets. 


With best wishes,

Mrs E Bond
