Summer Fete Friday 12th July 2-4pm

Dear parents,

We are so excited to welcome you to join us for the Summer Fete on Friday. Here are just a few reminders about the arrangements.

In order for us to set up the fete, there will be no clubs in the afternoon. All children will need to be collected by parents at 12:15 or 1:15. School will then be closed temporarily while staff set up in both playgrounds and then gates will be opened at 2pm to invite you in. As school staff will be running the event, all parents will be responsible for the supervision of their children during the afternoon. 

If you would like to donate anything and haven’t seen myself or Mrs Sayed yet, please come and chat with us next week. 

The weather forecast looks warm with a small chance of rain. Please ensure children have hats/sun-cream on and a jacket just in case. Who knows what the weather will do! 

I am sure this will be a hugely successful event for our school and look forward to seeing you all there. 

Thanks for your continued support.

Summer Fete Friday 12th July 2-4pm

Dear parents,

I am really pleased to invite you to join us at Birchfield on Friday 12thof July from 2 pm until 4 pm for our Summer Fete. This is such an exciting school event where staff, children and their families can come together to enjoy an afternoon’s fun and celebrate the successes of the school over the last year.  It will be very busy – amongst other things, there will be games, raffles, yummy food and crafts and stalls for all ages. 

As a school we are significantly investing in reading resources and any money we raise from this event will be added to this. We know that access to high-quality reading materials really does make a huge difference to children’s lives. 

In order for us to set up the fete, there will be no clubs in the afternoon. All children will need to be collected by parents at 12:15 or 1:15. The school will then be closed temporarily while staff set up in both playgrounds and then gates will be opened at 2 pm to invite you in. As school staff will be running the event, all parents will be responsible for the supervision of their children during the afternoon. 

We would love your support with this event and if you are interested in getting involved further or donating prizes, please could you come and see me or a member of SLT. I am sure this will be a hugely successful event for our school and look forward to seeing you all there. 

Thanks for your continued support.
