Summer BBQ – Fri 22nd Sept

July 21, 2017

Put Friday, 22nd September in your diary – we’re having a summer BBQ from 7.30 – 10.30pm at the school and it will be a great opportunity to catch up after the holidays, meet new parents and get to know some of the other parents a bit better!

More details to follow, but in the meantime line up your babysitters and save the date for a fun night out!

Year 5 Enterprise Day

July 20, 2017

Pupils in Year 5 have been creating their own businesses over the summer term. This culminated in the children selling their wares/services today and raising money for charity.

The exact totals are still being tallied up but they raised in excess of £125. After paying their investors and bankers, the remainder of the profit will be divided amongst the various chosen charities.

KS2 Disco

July 17, 2017

The PTA held another successful disco at school last Friday, this time for Key Stage 2. Thank you to everyone involved.

I would like to say a huge thank you to our PTA who have given up so much of their time to organise and run so many wonderful fundraising events throughout the year. Their contributions have been invaluable to the school. A number of our core PTA team are having a rest and handing over the reins to a new set of parents in September. I would like to thank these parents and I look forward to working with the incoming team next year.

‘Send My Friend to School’ Campaign

July 7, 2017

A former pupil at The Lea, Lulu Abubakar, is carrying out work experience at our school this week. Lulu is an Ambassador for the UK wide ‘Send My Friend to School’ initiative, which is working to highlight the need for funding overseas to help children receive an education who would otherwise not be given the opportunity to go to school.

This morning, she accompanied Mrs Swinson, along with 5 of our pupils (Fotis, Isai and Jessie from Year 5, and Edith and Asma from Year 4) to meet with our new MP, Bin Afolami, at Sir John Lawes to talk with him about the campaign and to present him with jigsaw pieces to help complete a symbolic jigsaw. Each piece highlights what is required for a school. The only piece that is left missing is the funding!

Key Stage 1 Disco

July 7, 2017

The PTA held a very successful disco yesterday after school for Key Stage 1. Due to the very hot weather, they took the initiative to hold the disco under the trees up on the field – the children had a wonderful time!

A huge thank you as always to our fantastic PTA and to all parents and carers who contributed in any way. We are sure the Key Stage 2 disco next Friday will prove just as successful.

Wesleys Cafe

July 2, 2017

Thank you so much to all of you who came to run Wesleys yesterday and/or donated those fab cakes for us to sell!  We had more cake donations than in previous years and it really made a difference.  We brought in £328 for the school which is amazing!

It was lovely to see the reaction from passers-by to the kids selling and there were lots of comments about how good the cakes were.  Everyone loved the ‘cakes made with love and sugar’ branding that the children came up with.  It made many people smile and come to the stall, some to just make a donation.  Terrific PR for the school.
