Below are some documents for you to share at home with your children. They are there as a reminder of the importance to stay safe whilst online, which is something that we have been focusing on in school over the past couple of days.
There are two documents - 'Online Smartie the Penguin' and 'Chicken Clicking' aimed at KS1, and a SMART document and the link below, which leads to an E-Safety game, aimed at KS2 children.
Please feel free to go through these resources and decide which would be appropriate to share with your child/children.

After the Prime Minister’s announcement this evening, school will only be open for vulnerable children and children of key workers from tomorrow. Please ensure that the form emailed today requesting keyworker details is completed by 9.00 pm tonight. Access the form here.
Priority will be given to those children where both parents are keyworkers followed by NHS staff, care workers and educational staff. You will receive an email this evening confirming whether we are able to provide a place for your child.
For those children completing home learning, work will be available on Microsoft Teams from tomorrow. If you have problems accessing Teams, work is also on the website under the Classes tab.
Once again, I thank you for your continued support.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who supported the Christmas Raffle. We raised an amazing £900, which will be put towards improving our outdoor area.
Christmas Tree Decoration Competition
We’re delighted to announce that the St Barnabas Primary School Christmas Raffle 2020 is up and running with all proceeds going towards improving our Early Years outdoor area.
To launch the initiative we have sent home raffle tickets with your child. If you would like more, please come to the school office.
If you would like to take part and be in with the chance of winning any of this year’s prizes all you have to do is fill out and return the tickets stubs with the correct money, in an envelope marked Christmas Raffle, to the school office before the 11th December.
Each ticket costs £1 and a book of five tickets £5.00.
If you do not want to partake, please return the unused tickets to the school office.
We would like to use this platform to say a big thank you to Chloe Stevens for organising the raffle prizes and to everyone who has donated a prize, particularly our local independents who are always so generous to our cause. A full list of prizes can be found in the link below and we will endeavor to keep it updated, as and when any other donations come our way. The raffle will be drawn on Monday 14th December.
For those of you who would like more tickets to buy or sell on to friends, family and neighbours, get in touch via email or visit the school office.
GOOD LUCK AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR SUPPORTING OUR CHRISTMAS FUNDRAISER.
We are raising money to help towards improving our Early Years outdoor area. The proposed playground makeover includes laying artificial grass and erecting a full length wooden canopy to improve the appearance and functionality of the space.
Christmas Lunch - 15th December 2020
This year our Christmas Lunch arrangements will be a little different to usual as we are unable to invite parents/families to join in the celebrations. However, the children will still be able enjoy a Christmas Lunch.
If you would like to book a Christmas lunch for your child please do so by completing this online form by Friday 6th December. It would be really helpful if you could still complete the form even if you do not want to order a lunch. If you have already booked/paid for a lunch, please still complete the form and select the relevant options.
Please note NO OTHER MEAL CHOICES WILL BE SERVED ON THIS DAY. If you do not wish your child/ren to have Christmas meal then they will need to be provided with a packed lunch from home.
The cost of the lunch is £2.50 and payment can be made via SchoolMoney (if applicable). Children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 and children entitled to free school meals will not be charged.
School Tea Towels
As a unique fundraiser, children have drawn their self-portraits which have then been printed onto tea towels. These would make ideal Christmas presents for family and friends!
The product is 100% cotton (size 79cm x 48cm) and a sample of the design can be found below. If you would like to make a purchase, please complete the order form below and hand it in to the office with your payment. Alternatively, orders can be made via SchoolMoney in the ‘School Shop’ section.
The cost of each single tea towel is £5 and in order to ensure that we beat the Christmas rush we need your orders back into the office or via SchoolMoney by the end of the day on Wednesday 25th November.
Thanks very much and we hope you like them!
Following the latest guidance for schools released last night, we are now unfortunately not in a position to have any unnecessary visitors on the school site, therefore we are unable to invite you to watch the children's performance on Friday afternoon.
We will film the performance and upload this to the school website for you all to watch instead.
There will be no Forest School this Friday for Sarum due to the visit from K'z Dance. Children are to come wearing bright Indian inspired clothing. Children will be dancing outside so please ensure warm clothing is provided.
