Happy Birthday to Crossdale!
Crossdale School is celebrating its 40th birthday in 2014/15. As part of the celebrations we will be having a party for the children, during school time on the 11th February. On that day we’ll be planning fun activities and telling the children a little bit about the school’s history. Children can come in none-uniform and we’ll be awarding prizes to children who come in 1970s fancy dress. The staff are all rooting through their cupboards at the moment, looking for flares and maxi-dresses! We’ll be having a birthday cake competition on the day – send in your cakes in for the Crossdale Bake Off!
Over the coming months we’re also hoping to complete ‘40 things to do at 40’. The party will be the first and we’ll keep a blog on our website of the other 39. Watch this space and let us know if you have any ideas!

Roll of Honour
On behalf of the Governors, staff and children at Crossdale I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year.
Many thanks for all your support and help that has made 2014 another successful year here at Crossdale.
Many thanks to all those people who have helped us raise nearly £3000 for Action Duchenne and Cancer Research. Your generosity and support really spurred on the 26 teachers, parents and friends of Crossdale who ran the Turkey Trot yesterday as ‘Team Crossdale’.
I know all the runners particularly appreciated the on-course support. We had children and parents seemingly at every corner shouting and encouraging us!
You can still help us get past the £3000 mark by donating at: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/crossdale

Crossdale Sports Kit
As the end of the Autumn term is now upon us, it is very important over the Christmas period that all PE kits are taken home, washed and changed in readiness for the Spring Term.
In preparation for the Spring Term’s sporting activities (whether in class or clubs) could you please ensure that your child has the appropriate and complete kit, always available in school. Please take into account what activities your child will be doing, the weather conditions and in particular the choice of footwear.
A PE kit should comprise of:
• Suitable trainers for all outdoor activities.
• Plimsolls for indoor activities only.
• Plain white t-shirt.
• Burgundy shorts / tracksuit bottoms.
• Plain sports sweatshirt
• All named and in a PE bag.
You can buy some of the kit above from school, but when purchasing kit elsewhere please remember to avoid prominent branding (adidas , nike etc). Buying plain sweatshirts and jogging bottoms from a supermarket will save you money and ensure children at school are not preoccupied about wearing the 'right' labels.
At Crossdale we aim to deliver quality and varied sports provision and hope you appreciate the need for all the children to have appropriate sportswear in school. We want to ensure consistency across the school, as well avoiding any unnecessary injuries.
Furthermore, we will be sending out regular text reminders if your child does not have appropriate kit in school.
Thank for your continued support. If there are any queries or questions arising, then please do not hesitate and speak to Mr Mate.
