What's new at Springside?
Letters to Parents/Carers

Rainbow Day

On Thursday 24th May (the day we break up for half-term), there will be a non-uniform day to collect items for a new stall at the Summer Fair.....Rainbow Tombola!  We are asking for each class to bring in an item of a particular colour, or wrapped in that colour.  The item can be anything as long as it is the colour listed for your child's class.

Red - EYFS, Orange - Y1, Yellow - Y2, Green - Y3, Blue - Y4, Pink - Y5, Purple - Y6

On Thursday 4th May, children can come into school wearing their own clothes (suitable footwear etc) which doesn't need to match their class colour.  

Commando Joe

Sadly, Commando Joe will be leaving Springside on Tuesday 22nd May.  

We are very sad to see him go and we thank him for his 3 years of commitment to the school.  

LA Penalty Notice System Reinstated

Bury Council have decided to reinstate the penalty notices for all unauthorised term-time holidays.  

As from September 2017, penalty notices will be issued at £60 per parent per child.  See the letter above or the copy sent home with your child.

Side Gate

The side gate will be closed at 9am every morning. 
So if you arrive after that time you will need to come through the office and sign your child in.

Uniform Policy
It is important that all children keep to the school dress code.  This ensures all children are dressed equally and it shows school visitors that we enforce high standards in school.  The following issues need to be addressed:-
Children should be wearing dark shoes for school, not trainers.  Trainers should only be worn for outdoor PE.
Children should not be wearing false nails of nail varnish for school.
Children should only wear a watch and/or small stud earrings.  No other jewellery should be worn.
Hair accessories should be kept to a minimum and where possible kept to school uniform colours.  Very large hair bows and head bands are not appropriate for school.
Mobile phones should not be brought to school unless necessary.  They should be kept in the school office.

Please can all parents and guardians take care and park considerately.
There are a number of road safety concerns that are making it difficult and dangerous for the children to cross into school each day.
