This Week’s Newsletter

Broadbridge Primary School                   Thursday 29th April 2021                                           Note 24


Diary:  School Holidays – The school will be closed from the 17th May -21st May.  Both dates inclusive.


COVID-19 Update Parents are reminded that the school must be contacted if there is a positive case in your household.  Please ring 7181 0520 or email stating your child/ren’s class and a brief outline of the case.


Adults are reminded that they must maintain a social distance at the gates of the school.  We would encourage the use of masks at these points due to the large gatherings at any one time!


Extra-Curricular Activities

Day Activity Time & Venue Note

Netball P6,7
Pupils MUST be booked (Before 8:45 a.m. on day of activity) through ParentPay ONLY

in order to attend. Cost £2:00 per child


ParentPay – We would like to remind parents that all school meals, morning club, 2-3pm club and extra-curricular activities must be booked and paid for via ParentPay.  Bookings must be made by 8.45am on the day you would like to use the service (with the exception of morning club which must be booked the day before).  If you are having any difficulties using the system or you still need to register, please contact the school office and we will help you in any way we can.


Monday 3rd May – The school is open on Monday 3rd May as normal.  We had initially planned to have our Sports Day on this day, however this will not happen as planned.  Sports will take place at a later date.  As it is a Bank Holiday there will be no canteen.  Therefore, every child must bring a packed lunch to school on Monday.  Those children that are entitled to Free School Meals have been given a separate form.  The school will provide them with a packed lunch if they so wish.


Big Pedal – What a truly fantastic turn out for the Big Pedal this year.  As the good weather continues we would encourage the children to continue to travel to school by any other means other than car!  The impact on the traffic at the school gates is clearly visible for all to see.  May Challenge – We would encourage older children in particular at the school to continue on their walking, cycling and scooting journey to school.  Some parents have arranged for safe pick up/drop off points in the village, this helps alleviate the traffic at the school gate, encourages the children to be independent and maintain a level of fitness for the pupils.  We hope that this is continued in the months ahead.


Swimming Money refund – The current primary 5 pupils received the swimming fund refunds yesterday.  Today refunds will be issued to children in primary 6 (Mrs Bradley Class) and tomorrow children will be issued refunds in primary 6 (Mr Logue’s class) and primary 7. There are some families that owe the school money for the lessons, this information and payment details will be on the letters issued to children.  A text will be sent to your primary telephone number informing you that the money has been returned, please check schoolbags.


Earth Day – Please try and maintain Plastic Free Friday in the months ahead.


Child Health Forms P1 & P2 – These are being collected tomorrow, please ensure that they have been returned.


Nessy Forms – Some pupils have been sent out Nessy forms please sign and return tomorrow of you would like your child to take part.
