Please note that there was an error with the dates on the original dinner menu.  This has been updated and the correct menu is on our school website.  Paper copies are available from the admin office.

It's always great to accompany our children to sporting events. Today, at the Stephen Shield Cross Country, was no exception.
With the clubs at school we are trying to get more children involved (willingly). This is something we'd like to change - but we need some support. Please have a look at the clubs on offer and try and support them. We are trying to follow the sporting events and give children the experience through the year to participate and enjoy themselves. Running Club, for example, has see children practise hard and have fun before going to events and giving their all! 
In assembly I showed the children this slide...

It was inspired from an article I read about a dad who asked... not what had gone well that day... but what his children had failed at! As you know our Super Learner ability has resilience at it's core! Stickability! The power to get going and keep going until we can do it. We'd like to get building with our sports (with the proven link to mental health) and achieve success! So, it doesn't matter that we fail! What matters is we learn and get better!

Clubs are now available to book online.  We have an exciting selection from film club to gardening club after school and animation, book folding and photography at lunchtime.  These are available to view on the school website and in the school foyer on the club board.  Please sign up as soon as possible to ensure your child's space.  Due to health and safety we cannot accept any children at clubs unless they have been booked in online.
This is a club run by a great enthusiastic chap called Clem Bennellick who works for Exeter Football Club.  Clem offers a wide variety of sports for all ages and abilities (except for Reception class).  Unfortunately the take up has been very poor and we have had to cancel the last 2 clubs.  He needs at least 10 children to participate in order for the club to go ahead.  This club will need to be cancelled this coming Monday if we do not fill the spaces.  I am afraid to say that we may lose this wonderful club if we don't use it!
We are now able to accept 30 hour codes for children entitled from September 2018.  To see if your child is eligible please check the following website;
Children who are already claiming do not need a new code but you will need to renew online when prompted by HMRC.
We are also registering children who are eligible for 2gether funding.  If you have not received a golden ticket and think you may be eligible please check
If you have a golden ticket please see Debbie or the Tiny Tiddlers team as soon as possible so that we can book your child in.
