News and Updates

Dear Parents,

We know how important wraparound childcare services are to working families and we have been working hard to expand the services we can offer at Crossdale.

We have introduced a new holiday club (which has been very popular) and we are currently planning to expand Busy Bees by converting the bungalow on the school site which was previously used by the caretaker.

To help our planning, and to ensure we provide the services that you need, please complete the short survey below. It should only take a couple of minutes.

Black History Month 

This week children have been introduced to 'Black History Month'; each class has been thinking about what this means and have been finding out about a significant historical figure. The children have been working hard and we hope to have some of their super work on display in school soon! 

Beatfeet Workshops 

Today, every child in school took part in a drumming workshop with Beatfeet. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed using the African drums! As well as drumming, the children learnt about what the instruments were made from and how they are constructed. Look out on class blogs for photos that could be coming soon! 

Midday Supervisor Vacancy 

We are looking for a part-time Midday Meal Supervisor to work on Thursday and Friday lunchtimes. If you are interested in working in school during the lunch hour and would like to be considered for this role, please contact the school office. 

Roll of Honour 

George Rhodes (Yr2) has recently passed his Green Belt in Kick Boxing; this is his 4th belt! What a super achievement George – well done! 

A big well done to Rosie Glasgow (Yr3) - she has passed her level 5 British Gymnastics Proficiency Award at Kingston Vale Gymnastics Club at East Leake. Congratulations! 

Rebecca Clay (Yr3) has been doing Gymnastics at Notts Gymnastics Academy since she was 4 and half and has worked her way through the Core Proficiency Gymnastics Award scheme and received Badges 8 - 1.  Rebecca is now working towards achieving her Advanced Proficiency Gymnastics Awards. In the last week she has passed 2 Bronze awards, 1 for Floor work and the other for Pairs & Groups. Wow! What a super achievement – well done Rebecca!

Charlie has been nurturing her sunflowers - these all came from the seed she planted in Reception in the summer term (see the attached photo!)

Please contact the school office, preferably by email marked ‘Roll of Honour’, if you would like to share the achievements of your children with the rest of the school community. We love to hear about what they have been doing outside of school.

Best Wishes,


Mr Cresswell & Miss Seedhouse

The profits have now been counted and an amazing £684 has been raised - thank you to everyone!

The money raised at PTA events goes towards supporting our children in lots of different ways. If you would like to become more involved in the PTA, the next meeting is on Tuesday 1st November at 7pm at school - everyone is very welcome to attend.
