Message from the Playing Fields Committee

In preparation for Rock Bottom on 22nd June, the Playing Fields Car Park will be closed from 4pm Thursday 20th June until 12pm Monday 24th June. You will not be able to park, drop off or pick up from the Playing Fields car park between these times – i.e. no access all day Friday or Monday am. If children use the play area please ensure they are supervised at all times as there will be large vehicles moving around the site.

The Playing Fields will only be accessible to Rock Bottom ticket holders during the event on Saturday. Access is via the school only with no parking on site. All proceeds from this event are used to maintain and develop the Playing Fields and play area.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Parking on Site

Dear Parents/Carers

We are extremely concerned by the driving and parking on school premises at the start and end of the school day.  We appreciate that there may be legitimate reasons for parking on site, but we really need to limit this for the safety of our children.

In order to be granted vehicular access to the school site, please make a request in writing to the school office.  This request should include a copy of your blue badge or medical certificate.  Please note, the school reserves the right to review any arrangement on a regular basis.

If you need any clarification, please contact the school office.

Thank you for your understanding.

Yours sincerely

Mr Garner

Plea for Scaffolding!

Dear Parents,

This year’s Year 6 production of Mary Poppins will be on Tuesday 17th– Thursday 19th July. We are in desperate need of a scaffolding platform to build a 2m x 2m tower to place our spotlight on. If any parents are in the building industry and could help us out by supplying any scaffolding, please contact Miss Doncow.

Many thanks,

Miss Doncow and Mrs Puddephatt
Year 6 Class Teachers

Reading Breakfast

Dear Parents,

We were delighted by how many dads, grandads and male role models took the time to come into Burford’s hall on Friday 24th May to read with the Burford children.  

Thank you also to the parents who gave us feedback about the event and how much they enjoyed it.  

These events allow us to show the children how important reading is to their learning and how much fun it can be too!

Next year, the event will become a family breakfast read and will include any parent or carer or adult role model who would like to join us for coffee and a croissant and a jolly good book!

Check out next week’s newsletter for a picture of the event.

Our final reading event of the year – to take place this half term – will be announced shortly.

Many thanks,

Mrs Barton, Mrs Andrews, Mrs Puddephatt
The Burford Reading Team
