2018 Reading Challenge ‘Read to Relax – 12 Books in 12 Months’

There are 12 categories listed on the reading challenge form, which can be collected from the library, so therefore 12 books to read over the next year.  Students can choose which book to read to fit the category – suggestions can be found on the library notice board and the library display table.  Mrs Newman is always available in the library to help with titles and finding the right books to fit the category.

There will be prizes on offer for those students who do manage to complete the challenge of reading one book a month in each of the categories.


Communication regarding ParentMail – 1st December 2017

Dear Parent/Guardian

Communicating with parents is an important part of what we do, following the consultation with parents we recognised that this was an area that needed to be improved.  Making sure you get the correct information about activities, events and things that really matter is something we care about.

After reviewing various communication packages we have decided to go with ParentMail with effect from 01/01/2018.

ParentMail will be beneficial to you because you can:

  • Use a free mobile app on Android and iOS to pick up school messages instantly.
  • Top up dinner money or pay for schools trips/items in just a few taps.
  • Complete forms, give consent/permissions and give feedback on surveys.
  • Keep on top of school meetings and events.
  • Book parents’ evening appointments.
  • And much, much more!

Registering with ParentMail is very easy.  Over the next few days you will be sent either an email and/or text message from ParentMail, when you receive this please just follow the instructions in the message.

Please be assured that ParentMail is registered with the Information Commissioner and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.

Once registered, if you have an Android or Apple smartphone, we highly recommend you download the ParentMail App for the best user experience.  To do this, simply search for “ParentMail” in your App store.

Parentpay will not be available after the 18th December, all balances will be transferred across to ParentMail.

If you need any additional information or assistance, please visit the help site: or if you have not received any contact from ParentMail within 7 days please contact Dawn Gibson, in Barham reception.

Kind Regards
