After School Clubs - As we move into December, life becomes hectic for everyone. Due to Christmas events taking place in school there will be no homework club or code club on Thursday 6th and 13th December. There will be no choir on Tuesday 4th December due to singing at ‘Light a Life’ on the same evening at 6.00pm. All clubs will finish the next to last week of term so there will be no after school activities the week beginning Monday 17th December.

Christmas Craftanoon This is taking place on Thursday 13th December, 3.30-5.00pm. If you took advantage of the special offer and paid for the disco and craftanoon together, then you do not need to send anything extra in for this event. If your child did not attend the disco but would like to come to the craftanoon please send £3.00 into school on Thursday.

Nativity Service On Friday 14th December our Key Stage One children will be taking part in a very special service in church and the whole school will be celebrating the birth of Jesus. The service will begin at 1.30pm and will take place in church. The service is expected to last no longer than one hour and mince pies and drinks will be served to parents and families in church after the service whilst our children come back into school to get changed. All pupils can leave after the service if an adult is present otherwise they will go home at 3.30pm as normal. There will be a stall in church before and after the service selling delightful handmade Christmas gifts and crafts, all proceeds will come directly to school.

Christmas Parties -  During the last week of term all the children will have a Christmas party. These will take place during school time and children can bring a change of clothes to wear for the party. Please make sure party clothes are suitable for school and shoes are sensible for running around and playing games.Key Stage Two party (Sharks, Stingrays and Whales) will take place on Monday 17th December and Key Stage One (Starfish and Dolphins) on Tuesday 18th December. We ask for donations of food and drink for the children to enjoy at the party and lists will be circulated in the playground during drop off and pick up for you to sign up against items you are able to donate. Please send any donations into school on the party day. Thank you.

Christmas Jumpers and Christmas Dinner Day On Wednesday 19th December children are invited to wear a festive jumper or T- shirt to school. Full uniform should be worn on their bottom half it is just swapping their school sweatshirt for a Christmas jumper. On the same day children and staff will enjoy a lovely Christmas dinner cooked by Mrs Theobald and her team. We all enjoy dining together and have lots of festive fun. Please encourage your child to have a school dinner on that day. Although they are able to bring a packed lunch, they may not be able to sit with their friends due to space in a very busy dining room where hot food has to be prioritised.

Children in Need - What a fabulous day we have had in school. Thank you to everyone who helped to raise a magnificent £435.

Young Voices On February 14th 2019 we will be joining many other schools at Manchester Arena to take part in the Young Voices event. Letters have been sent home but we still have a few places available. Children leave school at lunchtime and travel by coach to Manchester, they practise in the afternoon and then parents are invited to attend in the evening for the performance. It is not essential that parents attend because children will return to school on the coach. If your child is interested in taking part in this fabulous opportunity to sing in an arena in front of thousands, please speak to Mrs Gill or contact the school office

Parent Governor Thank you to all the parents who put themselves forward for election. The Governors are pleased to announce that Mrs Kim Clarke was successfully elected to represent parents on our Governing body. Congratulations.

 P.E. lessons are planned for set days each week but again the weather can prevent this from happening. If another day is dry the class teacher will move the outdoor  P.E. lesson to that day. Some children do not have their P.E. kit in school all week and therefore cannot participate if the day has changed. Please make sure your child’s P.E. kit remains in school all week.  

After School Provision From September 2019 the Governors are intending to provide after school care on site at Dinting School for all pupils who require it. We are in the very early stages of planning this additional provision. We intend to provide after school care, Monday –Friday until 5.30/6.00pm, finish times will depend upon need. Thank you
