CHILDREN IN NEED
Thank you to everyone who made a donation to children in Need. Our children looked fantastic in their brightly coloured outfits. As always you have been very generous and we have raised in excess of £660.00.
SAVE THE CHILDREN CHRISTMAS JUMPER APPEAL
The children wore Christmas jumpers to their Christmas parties this year and made a donation to the 'Save The Children' Christmas Jumper Appeal. We raised a total of £258.24. Thank you all for your contributions which are greatly appreciated.
YEAR ONE AND YEAR TWO SCHOOL TRIPS
As part of their topic work years one and two have been on school trips this half-term. Year one went to the Selly Park Museum and year two went to the Black Country Living Museum. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we were very proud of their behaviour.
Children are chosen by their teachers to be awarded with a golden certificate; here are all of the children who have been chosen over the last few weeks. Their certificates are displayed on the golden board in the school hall for a week and then sent home Kyle and Ralph from Bluebells Class Kaleb from Daffodils Class; Darntae-Revell and Harry from Snowdrops Class; Samuel, Myles and Coryn from Tulips Class; Finn and Jessica from Badgers Class; Jac and Leah from Foxes Class; Jorgie and Shayan from Hedgehogs Class; Macie from Squirrels Class; Allen from Owls Class; Ceejay from Robins Class; Oliver, Alexia from Swallows Class and Charlotte from Swans Class.
ALL STARS CHILDCARE
Our school provides childcare for children aged 2 years and upwards and a before and after school care facility called ‘All Stars’. This childcare provision is based in purpose built rooms in our ‘All Stars’ building which is situated on Hurst Lane North adjoining the school playground.
Our breakfast club runs from 7.45am until 8.45am when the children are taken to their classes. The after school club runs from 3.15pm until 6.00pm.
The children take part in games, painting, cooking, outdoor play etc. The children will be provided with breakfast in the morning and a light tea after school. Our Leader for the provision will welcome all Parents/Carers and pupils and will provide all the relevant details. If you would like to book a place for your child, or require any further information, then please contact the Manager on 07796 275080 OR 0121 749 7202.
We do provide 15 hours grant funded childcare for children aged 2 and up to 30 hours grant funded childcare for 3 years old. If you feel that you may be entitled to funding please contact the Family Information Service on 0800 389 8667 or email; firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the Family Information Service have confirmed you are entitled to this funding please contact All Stars on 0121 749 7202. Please note that if you are eligible for the 15 hours funding, you can use all or part of your funded hours at All Stars.
At Castle Bromwich Infant and Nursery School we run a cashless system, so all payments to School are made either via Paypoint, or over the internet to the parents/carers Parentpay account. The transfer so far has gone smoothly and we would like to thank all of our Parents and Carers for their co-operation.
UNIVERSAL FREE SCHOOL MEALS FOR INFANT CHILDREN
All infant school children are now entitled to a free school meal each day. A copy of our school menu is available in Parent Zone. There are four choices of hot meals each day or the choice of a baguette/wrap/bread roll with a selection of fillings. Please ensure that you have completed the Universal Free School Meal form, (available on line at the www.solihull.gov.uk/fsm). If you are entitled to Free School Meals as a result of certain benefits, please complete the relevant section on the form and ensure that the school are aware of your entitlement, as the school receives extra funding in these cases.
AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS
We will be running various after school clubs during the spring term. Please look out for the letters requesting you to express an interest if your child would like to take part.
