Sports Day

As we are sure you will be aware, Friday is sports day and it is predicted to be very hot! We have considered cancelling sports day due to the heat but know that would leave many disappointed children and parents, who may have taken time off of work to attend. Therefore, we are asking for your support in ensuring that the children are kept safe from the sun by asking ALL children to bring a hat, a water bottle and to be wearing a high-factor sunscreen.


We will do our best to keep the children in the shade as much as possible and be keeping the exercise to a minimum, but if you would like your child to opt out of sports day, please can you talk to their class teacher by the end of tomorrow (Thursday 6th July) so that alternative provision can be made. We completely understand if you choose to do this, however please do bear in mind that your child cannot be re-included in races if you change your mind.


We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that the picnic lunch will take place on the school field from 12:15 to 1:15pm and ask that you remain vigilant for all your children if you choose to join us. Staff will be supervising any children whose parents do not attend.

We look forward to welcoming you all on Friday. Don’t forget your sunscreen too as it looks like it is going to be a scorcher!
