School transport have asked us to remind any parents/carers of year 6 pupils, who wish to apply for free school transport for their child/children from September 2022, they should do so before 31st May 2022. Applications can be made online at https://shropshire.gov.uk/school-transport/ or over the phone with the Council’s Customer Service Team by calling 0345 6789008. Alternatively, should you require a paper copy of the application form, please do not hesitate to contact the school or Passenger Transport directly via email, firstname.lastname@example.org or over the phone on the above telephone number. If the application is not received by 31st May 2021, the Authority may be unable to provide transport for the beginning of the autumn term 2022 and parents/carers will need to make their own transport arrangements. Access to school transport is not permitted until entitlement has been confirmed.
Attached is a copy of a letter from Shropshire Council and also the PDF application form.
Next week, P.E. will be on Monday (first day back) and Wednesday.

Please find attached letter providing details of next half term’s after school clubs
P.E. this week will be on Wednesday and Friday for Year 5/6 – and not the usual Tuesday and Thursday.
I have been asked by several parents if there is football after school club running this week as apparently some children were told by the Activ Sports coach that last Friday was the last session. Football club IS on this Friday as normal.
Just a quick clarification message for those children attending next week’s tag rugby competition: they will need to be picked up at 4pm from Swancote (BRFC).
Can I please ask that all bookings required for Care Club for the first two weeks of the new Spring Term are e-mailed to me by Thursday 16th December latest. Please note that we return to school on Wednesday 5th January 2022
This week is the last week this term for after school clubs, there are no school clubs in the last week of Autumn term
Please also note that after school clubs will be re-starting on the week commencing 10/1/22
There are no clubs during the first week back at school in January
We have our final swimming session tomorrow. This is an additional session from the original dates. All children in class today were made aware of this; however, I am aware some were absent today and will have therefore missed the message.
We are pleased to let you know that all after school activity clubs will be back on again this week.
Please find attached letter detailing next half JANUARY 2022 After School Activity Clubs letterterms after school activity clubs.
Today (Thursday 11th), I have sent emails with specific times to those who have requested parent sessions for next week.
If you have not received an email and were expecting one, please let me know and I can amend this.
The Schools Admissions Team at Shropshire Council have asked us to remind the parents of Year 6 children that the deadline date for applying for a place at your child’s preferred secondary school is Sunday 31st October. All applications are to be made on-line at www.shropshire.gov.uk/schooladmissions During office hours, anyone struggling to apply online is advised to contact Shropshire Council customer services.
Maureen in the kitchen has asked us to let you know that the roast dinner tomorrow will be replaced with pork instead of beef which is shown on the menu on ParentPay due to supply issues. All other options remain the same.
She has also advised that all Roast Beef lunches will be replaced with pork until further notice.
Ludlow CE School are moving their Open Evening which was due to take place next week to a virtual event on 1st October. Please see their message below –
Ludlow CE School – Open Evening – move to a virtual event
Following a discussion with Shropshire Headteachers, we have made the decision to cancel the Open Evening as a live, face-to-face event, next Wednesday 29th September. Although our number of Covid-19 cases is currently not high in number, the local community (and upper KS2 children, particularly) have higher numbers, and so it is not in anyone’s best interests to host an evening that could become a “super spreader” event.
We will hold a virtual event from 1st October, on our school website: www.ludlowschool.com, under “News and Events”.
We are very disappointed that our Open Evening cannot take place as planned, but we have taken this decision in, what we believe to be, the best interests of the wellbeing of the school and the community. Please do contact the school with any queries.
Many thanks, Paula Hearle
For those attending this week’s netball festival (23rd Sept), it has unfortunately been postponed – and will now take place at the same time next Thursday (30th Sept).
We have been asked that parents please use the Leisure Centre entrance when picking up from BES at 4pm.
Just a quick note for those attending tomorrow’s after-school cross country event at Albrighton Primary School.
I (Mr Harley) will be attending the event to organise where/when children will be racing. The first race each week will start at 4:30pm and will be Y3 girls and then Y3 boys and so on.
The event organisers have asked all schools to ask parents not to stand or run anywhere on the course and that course marshals will be there to help with this.
Just to clarify, there are three events and the final event at Idsall school is on 21st September and not October as stated on the return slip.
Here is this term’s overview:
WW2 parents overview
Further general information on Scorpions (the new name for our Y5/6 class) can be found here.
If you have any questions about anything moving into the start of the new year, please don’t hesitate to contact me (email@example.com)
Could all Year 6s please try and bring any reading books back tomorrow that they have borrowed from school?
Tomorrow, Class 4 children will need to come into school in their P.E. kits. Boys are best wearing swimming shorts and P.E. top. Girls can bring a swimming costume – which they can get changed into at lunchtime and then wear under their P.E. kit.
All will need to bring spare clothes to change into at the end of the day. These need to be something which is quick and easy to get changed into.
A large plastic bag would also be useful for transporting wet clothes back home at the end of the day. A towel will also be useful. Hopefully, if the weather is warm enough for the clothes being worn to dry, there will be no need to actually change at the end of the day.
Please note that Class 4 will be arriving back at school at 3.45pm having had a fun day of adventures at Edge Activity Centre. Please note that they need collecting at 3.45pm and not 4.30pm. To collect children can parents please come onto the Infant Playground and wait on a yellow spot.
Here are some activities you can do to celebrate your favourites books and stories:
Send in pictures or videos to the class email addresses, we would love to see them!
Today is World Book Day, a day when children (and adults) all over the world celebrate books and reading. (I’ll let you into a secret….I believe everyday is World Book Day!)
I’ve been doing some research about reading….
Did you know?
You don’t just have to read books. You can read ANYTHING – Leaflets, newspapers, magazines, cereal packets, comics, labels on jars/tins, road signs, cookery books, poems, jokes, instructions, labels on the supermarket shelves, bottles of bubble bath, anything with words!!
You can also read ANYWHERE – at bedtime, in the bath, listen to stories in the car, read in the garden, read on the beach, read in the car, read in a tractor, read up a tree…..
So, today (and everyday) enjoy a story. Listen to a story or read to yourself. How does it make you feel?
Thank you for all of those that joined our live session with Larry. Don’t worry if you didn’t/couldn’t; there will likely be another opportunity to do the same thing at another time. For that didn’t, here is Larry, the axolotl:
You all had some fantastic questions and lots of them! I wasn’t planning on it taking as long as it did – but, in between trying to catch worms, positioning the camera in the right place, school’s internet connection not being great and answering all of your questions, it took up quite a lot of time.
If we do have another live session with Larry (which I’m sure we will – if enough of you want another), it is likely to be a lot shorter! We should hopefully be able to get everyone who wants to join into the sessions too. Given a lot of you have now experienced using Teams, it will also mean that things should run slightly smoother for next time as we can learn from what worked well and how we could change things to makes the session even more efficient (for example, how best to use the chat feature appropriately to ask questions…).
Between now and then, I will try and figure out some of the answers to some of the questions which I wasn’t completely sure about the answers, and you could think of any other questions you might have about him.
I hope, for those that did join, you enjoyed it – and I hope you have a good weekend!
Good morning Class 3 and 4 parents. Yesterday I sent a post out to let you know that we have set up a virtual workshop for parents on Monday at 2pm (Class 3) and Tuesday at 2pm (Class 4) to help answer any questions you might have about how to help your child with remote learning. I also asked for questions to be sent in ahead if at all possible so that we can prepare and answer thoroughly. So far we have had 1 question – so they could be very short workshops!
Please do send questions in – your child might even have some – and for the workshops, we are more than happy for children to be there as long as the appropriate guidance on using Microsoft Teams is followed.
