Tithe Barn Times 21st September 2018

Autumn is on its way

We have had another wonderful week at school, and the children are all working hard and challenging themselves in their learning. They have all been busy learning some lovely songs in preparation for our Harvest Festival on the 10th October at 9.15 am. I do hope you will join us.

Once again we will be collecting donations for The Wellspring in Stockport. They have sent us a wish list of much needed items this year including; tinned meats, soups, potatoes, fruits, pie fillings, pickles, sugar, shower gel and liquid soap, coffee, cordial and mayonnaise.

If you would like to bring any items to school please do so from Monday 8th October onwards.

We have also have a Facebook account Parents and Carers of Tithe Barn Primary School where we share information and events that have occurred in school.


Vision for Tithe Barn

We have spent the last 12 months reviewing our school vision with our children, staff and governors. We would like to share our ideas with parents and gather your opinions. We would like to invite you to a ‘Vision Evening’ on Tuesday 25th September at 6.30pm. I look forward to seeing you then.


Following on for our successful bid for new computers from Aviva two years ago, we have decided to put another bid in to support the development of our playground. To assist us in this process we are again looking for a financial advisor to submit our application. If you know of anyone who would be able to support us with this please contact me.

Book Bus

We will be visited by the Book People’s Book Bus on Friday 19th October. The bus will contain a wide array of books at discounted prices for parents to buy. In addition to this the school will receive 15% commission in free books. If you wish to visit the bus it will be in the school car park between 8.30 am and 4 pm

Please can I remind parents and children of the importance of crossing the road using both our wonderful lollipop person Bob and the island. It is extremely important that we keep every member of our community safe.

Thank you for your support with this matter


Once again, we will be having a whole school trip to Stockport Plaza to watch this year’s pantomime. Our trip will take place on Monday 17th December and we will be watching Sleeping Beauty.

Further information will be sent out shortly.

Giving Machine


As part of the Friends of Tithe Barn efforts to raise money for our IT they have set up an account with the Giving Machine. This is one of the easiest ways to support our school in raising much needed funds. All you have to do is register and shop. What could be simpler!

The site is supported by a number of big retailers including John Lewis, Amazon and Waitrose- to name just a few.

As a school we are committed to the Safeguarding of all our children. Our school policy can be found on our website. All staff have recently attended Safeguarding training and both Mr Blackburn, Miss D Vose and myself are trained Designated Leads for Safeguarding.

If you ever have any concerns regarding safeguarding please do not hesitate to contact myself, Miss D Vose or Mr Blackburn

Year 1 Trip to the Hat Works

On Tuesday 11th September Year 1 went to visit The Hat Works in Stockport. They had a fantastic trip and learnt all about hats and how they were made out of felt. The children had the opportunity to make their own felt which was very tricky!

Cameron said ‘It was a brilliant trip!’
