Tithe Barn Times 15th June 2018

Welcome back to our final half term of this academic year. We have lots of exciting events happening this term and I do hope you can join us.
We are extremely proud of all our children but in particularly our Year 6s, who worked exceptionally hard and were a credit to themselves and the school during the SATs and the recent residential last term.
I would also like to welcome our two new parent governors to our school, Mr Duffit (parent of a child in Reception and with a financial background) and Ms Metcalfe (parent of a child in year 1) who works in the field of education and performing arts. I am sure they will be an asset to the school.

Bee in the City
We have had a busy week completing the Tithe Barn Bee and it has now departed to be part of an exhibition of 80 different bees as part of the bee in the City trial. We hope that you will get the opportunity to visit our bee and take part in the trial. Our bee will then be returning to school in September.

A huge thank you to everyone who made a donation to our Bag2School collection. We raised £168 towards books for our library. We will be taking some more children to purchase new books in the near future.

Nut Allergies
Please can I remind parents that we do not allow nuts in school. This is due to a number of children in school having severe nut allergies. Please can you check any snack bars that you send to school and ensure they do not contain nuts.
Thank you for supporting us with this matter.

School Website
As you know we are working on developing a new school website. We want the new site to be a resource for parents and pupils. The current school website
at http://www.tithebarnschool.com/blog/ – this website has information, newsletters, policies, links and twitter feeds about our school, there is a link to the EPAY also on the current site.
The new site – which is under development, is up and running so that payments can be made via EPAY and parent interview can be booked online.

Fundraising for Lumos
On Friday 18th May, Melody from Year 3 ran a name the teddy stall in aid of the charity Lumos. She was overwhelmed with the support from the school community and raised a fantastic £36.00.
