Newsletter 25th May 2018

Dear parents and carers,

May Day

Thank you for all your help with this. The children had a wonderful day and much fun and merriment was had by all.  Particular thanks to the Friends of Dr South’s for masterminding the whole event.  It is a lovely community event which brings together the whole village, so thank you for the part you played in it.

Open Gardens – Sunday 3rd June

There will be eight gardens open in Islip, including the Forest School and the land at the Jacobs’ Field. If you wish to visit, please make sure you buy a ticket on the day from the Village Hall.  There will be activities for you to join in to find out what the children do up there!

Cycling Proficiency

Each year we teach the children in Year 5 about road safety on their bicycles. This takes intensive adult supervision and we are looking for helpers, so if you are able to help for the afternoons of the week beginning 11th June, and ideally can help every afternoon, please let the office know.

Term Dates

Please note that term dates for the next two years are on the school website – click here to go straight there.

Road Closure

We have been advised that the Wheatley Road will be closed for the week beginning 11th June.  If you travel from that direction, you could have a rather interesting journey! 


Our Christian Value this term is Hope. What can your child tell you about Rama and Sita and the Divali story?
