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

School Dinners

The new school dinner menu has been added to the letters above and us on the council website.  

After Easter, our kitchen will become a cooking kitchen and the menu may vary as the cooks know our children and their likes and dislikes.  Please bear with us until our own menu has been devised and we will post details as soon as possible.  

Easter Service

We will be taking the children from Reception to Year 6 to Christ Church, Walmerlsey for our Easter Service on Wednesday 28th March starting at 10:00 am.  If you are able to walk with the children to Church, please meet in the Community Room from 9:30am where coffee and biscuits will be available.

We do hope that parents, family and friends will join us in Church for this event.

Easter Egg Competition

This year, we are going to try a new activity which we hope lots of families will support.  This will not be a money raising activity, just fun for the family.  We would like families to create a model using eggs which is to be completed over the Easter holidays.  Children will bring their models into school on the first day back after Easter and they will be judged by our Chair of Governors.  We will provide prizes and out pictures of the winning models on the website.

The purpose of this activity is to encourage children to spend some time with family members over the Easter holidays completing a fun design and technology activity.  We will be looking for the most adventurous, unusual and intriguing designs.  Instructions will be sent out near the end of term.

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.
