group of pupils outside the steps of Beningbrough Hall

Dear Parents,

The first skip has arrived…and been filled twice over!  The renovation of the area to the side of the Old Vicarage has begun in readiness for the new outdoor learning area.  We have a busy few months ahead of us and some of the children are almost as excited as I am!


Year 1 – Beningbrough Hall 

I spent a wonderful day with Year 1 at Beningbrough Hall this week.  The children learnt how to polish cutlery and to wash their clothes.  They’ve been briefed to help at home; let’s see if their training can be put into practice!  It was lovely to spend time with the children and I very much look forward to watching them flourish as they progress through the school.


PTA Fayre – 23 June

Please don’t forget to support this event.  We’re still looking for:

  • Volunteers to help on the day!
  • Bottles of wine
  • New and unused toys
  • Second hand books

All items can be deposited at either reception and you can also leave your name with Rosalind or Linda if you wish to volunteer.


PTA Reception – 14 September

The PTA is holding a reception after school at the beginning of next term to welcome families new to Red House.  This event is open to all families and staff – a chance for our community to come together.  Please ’hold the date’.



We are currently awaiting the final dates for the new uniform to arrive.  At the moment we’re planning a booking system for three weeks of the holidays plus some drop in sessions.  We will confirm the definitive arrangements next week.   The new uniform lists are now on the website for your information and these include our PE kit requirements too.  We are having a ‘soft’ introduction of the PE in the new Junior School: you only need to buy the new kit when it’s time to replace the old.  If you have any queries, please email Ann Morton:


With best wishes

Ken James
