Dear Parents and Carers,


Y6 roles

We are incredibly proud of the way in which all of our Y6 children have taken on their new leadership roles within the school over the last few weeks. They really are a fantastic group and we're very much looking forward to seeing all their enthusiasm and energy result in some wonderful work this year!  


The Y6 roles are:


Head Boy  - Harry

Head Girl - Eva

Senior Prefects & Digital Leaders - Maisie and Daisy

Sports Captains - Sophia and James

Worship Lead - Harry

Librarian - Maddie

Eco Captain - Verity

Cavendish House Captain - Freya

Devonshire House Captain- Kiara

Hartington House Captain- Ella

Burlington House Captain- Isobel



Just a reminder that we do recommend that long hair is tied back for school in order to prevent outbreaks of headlice. If children do opt to wear their hair down for school, they must be able to tie their own hair back securely for PE due to health and safety reasons. Thank you for your ongoing support.


Please read the letter below regarding harvest donations:


Dear Parents and Carers,


Each year at harvest time, we try and support those in need by offering to give what we can to help people who aren't as fortunate as us. This year, we are continuing to support a cause which Canon Dave introduced us to a few years ago.  The Padley Centre in Derby city is an organisation which supports people at risk of homelessness, poverty and hunger. 


Here is a list of items which the Padley Centre are most in need of to help the homeless people they support: 


Food: Food must be in date and unopened:  


Fresh meat 

Cooking sauces 

Rice pudding 

Cooking oil 

Sliced bread 




Fruit squash 

Table sauces 

Tinned fruit 


Long life milk 




Tea and Coffee 

Tinned fish 




Tinned meat 

Tinned pasta 



Tinned vegetables 



Non food items:

We understand that lots of people are struggling at the moment with the cost of living so please give what you can. We are teaming up with our local churches in Edensor and Beeley for this Harvest donation appeal, so all donations need to be in school by 9am on Monday 2nd October please. Feel free to bring in any non-perishable goods on Friday 29th September if this is easier for you. 


Thank you for your help,
