Weekly reminder 24th June – 28th June 2024

Whole School

TAD day - Friday, 28th June – School is Closed for children

Weather – as the weather is warming up, please remember to apply sun cream in the morning to your child/children, send them to school with a sun hat and make sure that they bring in a water bottle every day.


School Meals Questionnaire - We would like the children’s feedback on the school meals that we provide.

  • Year 1 to Year 6 - You will find on your child’s Google Classroom profile a questionnaire regarding school meals that will need to be completed by each child. Children will need to log in to their Google Classroom and complete the questionnaire. Please note that each child will have to complete their own questionnaire. This is a survey for the children and NOT for parents, so please encourage your child to respond themselves.
  • Nursery and Reception - Please complete this questionnaire based on your child’s response. Please use the link provided to access the questionnaire:
  • If anyone needs any help with this, please e-mail the school office and address your query to Ms Clavé.

Southend School Trip – Thursday, 27th June at 8.30am - 3.30pm

Y6 Show Tickets

Later this term, you will be invited to buy tickets for Honk! You will initially be invited to buy two tickets, to ensure that nobody misses out on seeing their child perform. After this, the rest of the tickets will go on sale, so that you can buy tickets for siblings, friends and other family members. Though we will not be able to guarantee that everyone will get the number of tickets that they desire, we are hopeful that there will be more than enough space for everyone. Last year’s performances were all very well attended and there were still seats available for each evening.

Sensory Garden Grand Opening

After years of fundraising and months of digging, building, and planting, we are thrilled to announce that this year’s fair will coincide with the grand opening of the Sensory Garden. Wander around the garden and follow the free interactive Sensory Garden Trail to learn more about this exciting project.

Wood carving workshops

The entrance to the sensory garden is going to have a fabulous owl sculpture. The workshops will give your child a chance to make a wooden feather for the owl. These sessions are led by Yes Make who have created the sensory garden. The children will use a special type of saw and sander, then dip their feather in paint, ready to go on the owl sculpture when it's ready.

Workshops are £3 per child and run every 15 minutes throughout the fair. Please only book for children currently at Coldfall School/Nursery. Sessions can be booked online. (A parent must remain with children under 5 years).

Summer Fair – ‘Golden Threads’

One of our ‘Golden Threads’ at Coldfall is to teach our children to be environmentally aware and responsible. Before coming to the Summer fair please talk to your children about putting wrappers, containers etc in the bins.  Please model this yourself and don’t leave cans, cups etc on tables or walk past them when you go home. We have a beautiful space to enjoy. Let’s respect it and look after it.


You Tube

There have been some incidents at school this week involving children using racist, homophobic and aggressive language. When looking into these incidents, all the children involved have shared that this language is something they have watched on You Tube. Please see below a couple of links, which give some guidance on how to keep children safe when watching You Tube. Some of the things that children have reported watching are racist jokes, homophobic jokes and slap battles.

We would encourage you to watch You Tube with your child as inappropriate and offensive content can often follow a video which may have been age appropriate.

There is also a You Tube Kids channel which has some restriction on content. Children watching this content and sharing it with others at school is causing real distress to some of our pupils and we would urge you to consider the impact of what your child is watching.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss this any further. Thank you.


Ongoing Information

Outstanding debt

We would like to ask parents to please clear any outstanding debt that they have on School Money as we will be moving to a new system called Arbor. In order for the move to go smoothly all debt needs to be cleared from everyone’s School Money account. If there are any issues, please contact the school office as soon as possible.

Please watch out for an e-mail from school where you will receive information on how to register to the new Payment System. The new system will have an app that everyone will need to download. Thank you.

Leavers (Nursery to Year 5): If you are planning to leave Coldfall Primary school at the end of the school year please e-mail the school office and let us know your child’s new school name and address as well as your new address, if applicable. Thank you to those parents who have already contacted the school office.
