Looking Forward

Reminder  – Academy Photographers for school and nursery

Photographers will be in on Monday 18th September for photographs. Each visit has a different format. This term’s is Families, siblings and individuals.

What this means is that if you want to have a family photograph taken by them come in through the main entrance between 08.30 and 09.00 (no later) with your children and they will take photos.

After that we will organise for individual and sibling photographs to take place during the day. Sample packs come out a few weeks later for you to purchase if you wish.


Reminder – Macmillan Coffee Morning for school and nursery families

The school raises money for this charity on the 29th. Cakes are gratefully received and the session will start as soon as the children go in. More information will follow.


Sgt Egerton

We have been invited to represent the children of Blythe to remember the centenary of Sgt Ernest Egerton being awarded the VC.

Sgt Egerton was born locally (his blue plaque is on his house on Uttoxeter Road) and was one of many young men who went to fight in World War I.


Looking Back

Parent Information Evening

Thanks to all parents who visited class to meet the teacher and find out about this term and year. I hope you found it useful and gave you the chance to assure yourselves of the routines of the class.


Times and Echo

Our new Reception children were photographed this week by the Times and Echo so look out for their photo in the upcoming edition.


Some Reminders


Can I remind everyone that parking is very difficult around all primary schools and we are no exception. Please park considerately and bear in mind that you are subject to all the rules of the highway code and you are likely to be reminded of this by other road users!



Very many children and adults are frightened of dogs and no amount of telling them a dog is safe will change their minds. Dogs are big with sharp teeth and they can and do hurt children. Even tiny dogs are hundreds of times bigger than spiders but that doesn’t stop people running away from a spider no bigger than a 5p piece!

For this reason we don’t allow dogs on our playgrounds. Please can you secure your dog well away from the school gates when you come to pick up or drop off.


As always, I will always do my best to speak to you about any concerns you may have on the day so please feel free to approach me, either on the playground or book an appointment if you prefer.


Mr B Wilken
