We look forward to welcoming you to our school this morning……we are open for visits from 9am until 12noon. Come and see us in action!!
Parents evenings will be held on Monday 10th November from 3.30 to 5pm and Tuesday 11th November from 3.30 to 6.45pm.
Look out for the letter coming home today to book your appointments. The appointments will be made on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, so please return the slip as soon as possible stating which slots work best for you. Your child(ren)’s teacher will allocate the slot(s) and let you know.
Congratulations to Sharon Cale, who has successfully gained a Headship at Amberley Parochial School and will be sadly leaving us at Christmas. We will really miss you Miss Cale, but Amberley are lucky to be getting such a great Head Teacher. Good Luck x
I hope you all had a restful half term break…..we are looking forward to a busy new half term with the lead up to Christmas.
Join in the celebration of the end of term 1 and Halloween straight after school tonight in the hall. There will be a treasure hunt, lots of games and music to enjoy. Don’t worry about tea as there will be lots of food on offer! I look forward to seeing you there.
Another fun event is the planned Messy Church here at school on Sunday 26th October, 2pm-6pm where the whole family can relax with food and drinks and have fun joining in with loads of activities – stay all afternoon or drop in it is totally up to you. It sounds like a great opportunity to entertain your children on a cold damp or wet Sunday afternoon and it’s free!
Also as we near Halloween and bonfire night please take extra care. The following is a useful reminder about trick or treating….
- Accompany young children (under age 12). Make sure they know how to call 999 in case they get lost. Check to make sure they know their home phone number.
- For older children who are trick-or-treating on their own, find out the route they’ll be taking and when they’ll be coming home. Also be sure that they:
- carry a mobile phone, if possible
- go in a group and stay together
- only go to houses with porch lights on and walk on sidewalks on lit streets (never walk through alleys or across lawns)
- walk from house to house (never run) and always walk facing traffic when walking on roads
- stay away from candles and other flames
- know to never go into strangers’ homes or cars
- cross the street at crosswalks and never assume that vehicles will stop
- Give children torches with new batteries. Children may also enjoy wearing glow sticks as bracelets or necklaces.
- Limit trick-or-treating to your neighbourhood and the homes of people you and your children know.
- When your children get home, check all treats to make sure they’re sealed. Throw out sweets with torn packages or holes in the packages, spoiled items, and any homemade treats that haven’t been made by someone you know.
- Don’t allow young children to have hard sweets or gum that could cause choking.
- Make sure trick-or-treaters will be safe when visiting your home, too. Remove anything that could cause children to trip or fall on your walkway or lawn. Make sure the lights are on outside your house and light the walkway to your door, if possible. Keep family pets away from trick-or-treaters, even if they seem harmless to you.
Hope you have a lovely weeks rest, the children definitely seem to need it. Please keep your children reading loads, writing often and learning their timestables for the 99 Club! Look forward to seeing everyone safely back on Monday 3rd November.

Shortwood United have kindly presented Nailsworth Primary School with new football kit. The photo includes 3 generations of one family, emphasising the amazing connection Shortwood has with local families and the community: Roger Grant and his son Simon Grant, both committee members, and Simon’s children Charlie and Sophie. The school children were invited to be mascots for Shortwood’s FA Cup game v Cirencester. They were also presented with new footballs by Jim Cunneen and Alex Sykes.
Everyone at Nailsworth Primary would like to thank Shortwood for their generous donation and their wonderful support for the school.
