As the first half term draws to an end it is great to sit back and reflect on the great start to the academic year we have had. Year 5 and 6 have enjoyed sporting trips to football and athletics, not winners but certainly proud competitors. The beauty of small schools-everyone gets a chance whether they are the best or not, everyone gets stuck in, gives the task 100% and supports one another regardless of the outcome.
Similar scenes can be observed during the junior singing session with Mr Taylor from the Cathedral-hard songs, Latin even, but 100% is going into their performance and although they might not be the loudest, I’m sure we’ll be the proudest.
Our reception starters seem like they’ve been with us for years and haven’t been gradually weaned in with part-time sessions. Nope, full time from day one and hanging on in there with smiles and eagerness to learn.
Everyone is ready for a little break to recharge their batteries and prepare for the next half term with equal excitement- particularly as the man in the red and white suit won’t be far away. Autumn half term 2 is already looking full with lots of events planned:
Gin and Tropic – 2nd November
Christmas Shopping Night – 30th November
Community Christmas Lunch – 13th December
To name just a few.
In the classroom, the juniors look forward to another visit from Mr Slater to discuss the Great Wars, while early years and KS1 look at food as a topic.
We look forward to opening our doors to any pre-school children for a ‘stay and play’ session on Tuesday 27th November from 9:30 am.
And please spread the word about our open afternoon for anyone considering a reception place in September 2019 on Monday 12th November from 1:30 pm.
I extend my thanks once again to the support from our commAlison Dickinson – 016974 76291

Raughton Head C of E School – “120 Club”
Every year, we run a “120 Club” to raise funds for the P.T.A. This helps us to pay for and subsidise a variety of events for the children. During the past academic year, the P.T.A. has contributed to equipment for a new library, a very entertaining and informative science show and a whole school trip to “Classrooms in the Forest” at Whinlatter. We feel it is important for the P.T.A. to contribute to transport costs for swimming lessons, sporting events and at school trips. Transport is very costly, but outside trips are both enjoyable and of great educational value. We also provide the children’s annual Christmas party, and we invite Santa to come and give them each a gift.
Tickets cost £10.00 for 10 draws, starting in October, with half the money raised being returned in prize money. If you would like to join in the fun and help us support the school, please fill in the form below. We would be very grateful if you could please ask family members, Friends and neighbours if they would like to purchase a ticket for the coming year too.
Please return the forms and money to: Hazel Perry, P.T.A “120 Club”, Raughton Head School, CA5 7DD. Please make cheques payable to Raughton Head School P.T.A.
Could we ask that forms and payments are returned by Friday 12th October please.
We look forward to your support, as does the school. Many thanks.
