Thanks to the Friends of Canon Popham

A huge THANK YOU to the Friends of Canon Popham who have worked so hard to organize and put on a really lovely Christmas Fair last week. Events like this take a great deal of organization and all the children in school benefit from the funds raised.

Many thanks to everyone who contributed in any way, either through donations of items, volunteering to help or coming to support the event.

Once the Friends of Canon Popham have completed their Christmas fund raising efforts, which will continue over the next 2 weeks with the sale of refreshments etc at our Nativity plays and Carol services, we will be able to let you know the final total of funds raised .

New Climbing Frame

It was appropriate that the brand new climbing frame was installed last Friday, on the same day as our Christmas fair. This was a great example of how the children in school benefit from every penny that is raised in all the PTA fund raising. The children are delighted with it and we hope that it will last just as long as the old one did, and that the children will enjoy using it for many years to come.


Can we please remind parents and carers that if your child choses to use the climbing frame either before school starts or after school it is parents responsibility to supervise their safe behavior and play during these times. In addition, on snowy or icy days, the climbing frame should not be used for health and safety reasons.

Thank you.


Next week we have our Foundation and Key Stage 1 Christmas Nativity Plays. We look forward to seeing all those who have booked tickets for these events. The children and staff have worked really hard preparing them and we are sure you will enjoy them. Our Key Stage 2 Carol Services are in the final week of the term. Due to the numbers of people that can be seated in the church, this is strictly by ticket only and we ask that you bring your tickets with you to be admitted to the service.

The evening performance is now full, and we are unable to meet any further requests for tickets for this service.
