Weekly update, 5th May

This week’s headlines:


Farewell to Mrs Scott


Mrs Scott will be retiring at the end of this school year. Since joining the Old Dalby family in 2013 as teacher in Class 1, Mrs Scott has taken on many roles including SENDCo and Deputy Head – it is hard to imagine what it is going to be like without her. Not only has she been an inspiring and nurturing teacher, she is a source of calm and knowledge for colleagues too, as well as a great friend. There are not enough ways to say how much we will miss her but wish her the very best in her next adventures!


Celebrating the Coronation

We will be celebrating the King’s coronation by wearing red, white and blue on Friday, 12th May.

Please bring in a sweetie jar/surprise jar to donate to the PTA summer fair.


This is also the last day of Year 6 SATs so it will be a double celebration for some! The Prefects are going to be planning the afternoon which will include a visit from Rev’d Jamie with some very special gifts for everyone from the Church. More information will follow, as soon as arrangements have been made.


Summer Fair – Sunday, 21st May

Can you help our PTA?

They need donations of:

Ø Tombola prizes for adults and children

Ø Soft toys and teddies for the teddy tombola

Ø Bottles of wine

If you are able to help out with donations, please send items into school from the start of next week.


There will be a Perfect Pet Competition, you can submit a 6x4 photo of you pet to the office by Tuesday, 16th May with people voting for their favourite on the day of the fair.

As we have the building work due to start in late May, we have brought Sports Day forward to Friday, 19th May. If the weather is not favourable or the field is still too wet, we do have Friday, 26th as a back-up. Keep your fingers crossed for no more rain!
