An incident recently occurred in Brook Farm Open Space, near the Totteridge and Whetstone area, in which two young girls aged between eight and 10, were approached by an adult male who behaved inappropriately towards them. The suspect was described as a white male with fair skin, white hair and of large build. The police are investigating and advise all parents to be extra vigilant when supervising their children in parks and open spaces.



Ballet Club will start at 8-8.45am on Tuesday 19 September for Years 5 & 6, Wednesday 20 September for Years 1 & 2 and on Friday 22 September for Years 3 & 4. We have a few spaces on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, please contact me for a free trial class: 07789605166 or

From the 27th September, one of our parents (Jasper's mum in Year 2) has kindly offered to run a Computing Coding Club on Wednesday mornings between 8am and 8.50am at School.  The club is linked with Code Club (a nationally organised scheme) and will give the children lots of fun opportunities to learn how to write their own computing code.  If you would like to look at the website it is:​.

The Club will run from the 27th September to the 12th December and will be available to the first 12 children in Years 4 to 6 that sign up.  If it is popular, then we may look to run further sessions in January.

If you would like your child to take part please contact the Office.

PARENT INFORMATION MEETING- Monday 11th September 6.00 p.m.

We will be holding a Parent Information meeting on Monday 11th September.  You will be able to visit your child’s new classroom and meet the teacher at 6.00 p.m. This will be followed by a brief information meeting in the hall. This will be an opportunity for you to be reminded about expectations and procedures for the new school year. This is a meeting just for parents, please do not bring your child/children.



Most parents have managed to login to their Parentpay account now and have been using it. If anyone is having difficulties, please let Zoe in the office know.



REMINDER – Increase in fees

Breakfast Club £4 per child (£3.50 per sibling)

PARENTPAY is not yet set up for Breakfast & After School Club so please continue to pay in your usual way until you receive the information.

KEY STAGE 2 CHOIR (Y3-6)- every Thursday from 8.15 a.m. in the hall

It was great to welcome so many new Y3 members to choir last week. They joined in really well and sang beautifully. We still have space for a few more voices, so if your child would like to join, they should come along on Thursday at 8.15 a.m.



‘Netaware: a way for parents to review kids’ social networks, apps & games’

Netware is a parents’ guide to the social networks children and young people use. This is a good link to help you to stay up to date and keep your child safe in today’s digital world.

Last year we were the proud owners of 5 giant African land snails. We now have another 70 tiny snails! We are anxious to find them new homes. They are very easy to look after and live very happily in a small fish tank/ terrarium with coco compost in the bottom. They are quite picky eaters but their favourite foods are cucumber, lettuce, kale and they sometimes enjoy the odd dandelion leaf! They are very easy to look after and quite fascinating to watch. Please let the office know if you would like to have some (2 or 3 probably the optimum number).
