January Newsletter

9th January 2024

Dear Parents and Carers of St Cuthbert’s,


Happy New Year and a huge welcome back to all of our children. They’ve all had a brilliant first day back and have loved telling us all about their holidays and celebrations over the festive period. We are all looking forward to a very busy spring term and have lots of exciting activities and events planned for the children. Please see the Dates for your Diary for more information when they are updated, later this week.


Reception Class September 2024

The closing date for Reception Class applications for September 2024 is Monday 15 January. Please ensure you have applied for a place for your child if they were born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020.


Polite Reminder re: the school day

Our school day begins at 8.45am prompt. We have a number of children who are consistently late and who are missing the first 10-15minutes of their learning in school. Please ensure you arrive at school in time for your child to start their school day properly and alongside their classmates. 

Please note: revised kitchen requirements for our school kitchen mean lunches need to be ordered promptly every day. If your child is late, it could impact on their lunch choice for that day.


Wraparound Provision

Please continue to follow school procedures for booking children into our After School Club provision. This ensures school have enough staff and resources available to run the club safely.


Thank you for your continued support. If you do have any concerns or there is anything we can support you with, please do not hesitate to contact us via the school office on 0191 2860129 or via email office@stcuthbertsk.org or please come and catch us on the yard for a chat.
