Newsletter Friday 19th July 2019

Firstly, I just wanted to say how wonderful it was to see you all at sports day last Friday afternoon.  It was a wonderful opportunity for us all to come together at the end of the school year. 

Every year there are so many people to thank for making our school the vibrant and exciting place it is.  Teamwork, is without doubt the key to a successful school and therefore it is important that I acknowledge the contributions people make, often going above and beyond, to ensure school shines.

This includes our amazing staff for their dedication and care, helpers who voluntarily give their time, hearing readers and helping in school, the wonderful PTA who work hard to raise funds and organise events throughout the year, the Governing body who work diligently, often behind the scenes, and of course our fantastic children and you, our supportive parents.  We can all feel extremely proud of being a part of Snaith Primary School and helping our school to ‘Shine’!

Fond farewells

As our Y6 children prepare to embark on the next stage of their education, I would just like to say what a privilege it has been to have been part of their journey so far. They have been an amazing group of children and we wish them all the very best for the future. We sincerely hope they will keep in touch with us so that we can share in celebrating their undoubted future successes.

Today we also say goodbye to Miss Lamb who has worked with us this year. We thank her for her dedication to our school and wish her well in her new appointment in September.

We also say ‘goodbye’ to Miss Atkinson – but do not worry, she is not leaving us. It is just that when she returns in September we will be saying hello to Mrs Johnson!  We wish her and her future husband every happiness and the most amazing wedding day next month.


Magic Moments

This week, to celebrate the schools continued success and reaccreditation of the Basic Skills Award, on Tuesday the children had the treat of being entertained by a magician, kindly paid for by the PTA.  Then on Wednesday we all enjoyed a fun filled activities afternoon, superbly organised by Year 6 with ice lollies/choc ices again donated by the PTA.  A wonderful way to round off our year together.



As we look forward to the start of a new academic year please can I remind everyone of our uniform standards for you to bear in mind. Please see below. We are always grateful for the way in which, with your support, our children uphold the highest standards.


Please ensure that all diner money, after/before school club and nursery fees are paid up to date.

Water Bottles

Also, just a little reminder that next year we are inviting all children to bring a drink of water to school each day in a water bottle. We are finding that this is helping to keep children better hydrated. We do respectfully remind everyone however that it is school policy that this should only be water and not juice or fizzy drink.

School Meals

From September school meals will be £2.45 per day £12.25 per week. These continue to be excellent value, I know, I have one each day. We continue to follow the East Riding menu which provides a balanced diet based on ‘The School Food Standards’. A copy of next terms menu was sent home with your child this week.  Please can we make parents aware, if your child is moving from Year 2 (KS1) to Year 3 (KS2) unfortunately the government Universal Free School Meal Scheme no longer applies.  If you feel that you may still be eligible for free school meals, please contact the school office or apply online at

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all of your good wishes and thanks we have received. I wish you all a wonderful summertime and look forward to seeing you on 3rd September 2019.


Yours sincerely

Helen Calpin
