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:

Scarlett Fever Q & A Factsheet





Fund Raising

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.




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.




If attending the morning session your child is due in school by 8.30am.  Please enter the school building via Children's Centre Snowdrop Room both Courtfield & Lordswood Lane Gates will be opened at 8.20am. 

The Lordswood lane gate & FSU gate will be open between 11.30am and 11.45am for parents to collect their children from the FSU.

If attending the afternoon session (12.15pm) children arrive via Children's Centre Reception and will be collected by a Foundation Stage teacher.  Pupils leave FSU and site via Lordswood Lane or Courtfield Avenue gate.

Thank you



All children will need to bring their PE Kits (shorts, t-shirt & plimsolls) daily.  A reminder that all children should have their water bottles with them daily, especially now that the weather is warm!

Thank you



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.

Thank you for your cooperation.

We have been advised by Medway Council that our Pupil Premium Grant is being extended to pupils who from 1 January 2006 have been adopted from care, or are subject to special guardianship orders or residence orders.
Parents and guardians do not have to share this information as we know this is a sensitive issue.  However, if you think your child would benefit from this funding please speak to either Mrs Campbell or Mrs Martin in the strictest confidence.
