Message from the Head

Last week we were delighted to welcome so many of you into school. It has been really great that so many of you joined us in our learning through the Grand Finales, Open Day and our Big Shares. The feedback you have given us has been very encouraging and we would just like to thank you all again for your support. 

You may have noticed that Mrs Boyce, our Nursery Teacher has been featured in the local papers recently.  As a school, we would like to congratulate her on her fantastic achievement and well done to Mrs and Mr Boyce and family -

Remembrance Day

Lots of children have already bought poppies, reflectors, bracelets and wrist bands for Remembrance Day - please remember to bring £1 or 50p if you would still like to buy something.  We will be doing a feature on Remembrance on Monday in our Assembly.

Children In Need

As you are probably aware Friday, 17th November, is ‘BBC Children In Need’.   Children at Nightingale Infant School and Nursery are invited to take part by coming to school in non-school uniform and contributing £1.00 to the Appeal. Children may also bring their Pudsey bears, or teddy bears dressed as Pudsey to school on this day. Please note that this is a voluntary activity. Thank you for your support.
