Year 6 BBQ

Please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately for walking to the park; if it rains, we’ll be staying in school and will notify you on the day. Your child will need a drink and any medication that they need (e.g. an inhaler). For safety and security, we’ll look after children’s phones if they bring them, but children can choose to bring a separate camera with them if they wish to take pictures.

The gates won’t open for the children until 1.30 (when lunches have finished for the children in school), so please don’t send them any earlier than that. If you are collecting your child from the park at 4.00, please make sure that you tell a teacher before you take them.

Thank you to ‘Jacks’

A huge thank you to ‘Jacks’ of Rubery who have very kindly donated critical items to The Meadows School over the last week. They have donated vital cleaning equipment at a time when sourcing this has been very difficult and they also made an extremely generous donation of foodstuff to be added to our school food bank. We thank them very much for their generosity and community spirit.
