Children in Need
Thanks to your generosity the staff and pupils at Lordswood School and Lordswood Children's Centre raised a staggering £385.00 for Children In Need.
Friday 23rd October 2015
'Wear it Pink'.
Thank you, the children looked amazing ... to date we have raised £300.00.
The money from the cake sale is still being counted, we'll keep you updated.
Thank you for your donations & support.
The school will be fundraising on behalf of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity this year as we have two families who have close associations with them. We shall endeavour to coincide the fundraising activities with other National events, i.e. Children in Need, Red Nose Day etc. We hope that you will support us in our fundraising efforts.
Our School Day
|Year Group||Start time||Finish Time|
|Years 1 & 2||8.45am||3.15pm|
We appreciate that some parents may wish to bring their dogs onto the school site when dropping off or collecting their children from school. However, in the interests of health and safety, parents are reminded that dogs (other than service dogs) are not permitted on the school grounds - this includes dogs being carried by adults.
We would also request that parents do not leave their dogs tied up to the school fence near to the school gates as this is also a health & safety concern.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Our new number is 0300 065 8250
Rise in Scarlet Fever Notifications
The Kent Health Protection Team have asked us to make you aware that there has been a rise in scarlet fever notifications locally, as well as in other parts of the country. The attached factsheet has information on signs/symptoms, mode of transmission and length of exclusion which may be useful.
Public Health England have also produced guidance for schools on infection control which you may also find useful:
We have introduced a new texting service in order to contact parents with general updates. If you have recently changed your mobile number please contact the school office to ensure that they have your correct contact details. Thank you.
