    This week's Article of the Week is number 29:

    Every child’s education must develop their talents and abilities. It should encourage children to respect rights, parents, cultures and the environment.  


    Message from Senior Leadership Team

    Dear Parents and Carers

    Well done on surviving the hottest week for years! The children have been incredibly good given the tough working conditions so we want to say a big thank you to them! Please make sure your child has a water bottle in school and a sun hat to protect their heads. 

    As we approach the end of the year, please keep an eye on the calendar either on the website or through the School News app which has all the upcoming events listed. Next Saturday, July 1st, will be the Summer Fete and we look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.

    Enjoy the weekend and stay safe,

    Mr Hawke

    Grafton Primary School have adopted Local Authority procedures and DO NOT authorise holidays during term time.  Parents will be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice Fine of £60 per parent per child for all holidays taken during the term.  If you need to discuss this, please contact Mrs Chappell for clarification.

    Unpaid School Meals  

    Dear Parents/carers,

    We have successfully sought judgements (CCJs) against those parents that owe substantial amounts to the school, for unpaid school meals.  This means that the school will no longer be carrying those debts, and will be able to use those funds appropriately.

    Also, thank you to those of you that manage your child's account and keep your child's account in credit.



                                                                Grafton Book Bags

    We are collecting old or unused Grafton Book Bags for our new intake. If you have any Grafton Book Bags at home that are no longer being used, we would be very grateful if you would bring them in to the school office so that they can be offered to children joining our school.  Many thanks in advance.


    Language of the Term - Lithuanian

     We have three words to learn:

     Hello           = Labas

     Please        = Prasau

     Thank you = Aciu
