Mrs Foster’s Final News of 2018!


We have come to the end of a great 2018 at Whitefield.  What a great way to spend the last two weeks – it has been so lovely to see you all either on the playground or at the numerous productions we had throughout last week (9 in total!).

The children were amazing throughout all the productions and they really reminded us about the meaning of Christmastime and the joy of us all being together as a Whitefield family.

This week the festivities continued - we have fed nearly 400 children an amazing Christmas dinner, Santa has delivered gifts from the Friends of Whitefield PTFA and we have been partying at our Christmas parties.

And today we have completed our term with a Christmas sing-song together.  Check out the school website blog page and Facebook later on for a special Christmas song for you all!


Sadly today, we say goodbye to June Richards, our amazing dinner lady and playgroup leader. June has secured a new job and we are so pleased for her but very sad for us. However we know we will see her still when she picks up the grandchildren from school.

Playgroup continues every Friday under the care of Val and Jess.  Come along any time from 2pm-3.15pm. No need to book.


We are already planning events for the Spring Term (you will have received the updated list via email, Facebook and the website on Wednesday this week).  So far, I have not managed to secure Idris Elba for the opening of the outdoor classroom but I will keep working on it just for you Mrs Simpson.

We have also sent out the information this week for the Friends of Whitefield Quiz and Curry night in January 2019.  We are hoping to hold a raffle on the night, so if you receive any duplicated presents, or things from your Aunty Pat that you really don’t need/like/want could you please save them for this event?  Thanks in advance!


Finally, the staff, governors and myself wish you a peaceful holiday. We hope Christmas and New Year are just what you want and plan for.

For me, it is family time and I expect a bit of madness over the Christmas period, followed by quiet, relaxing times over the New Year with plenty of dog walks, jigsaws, book reading and board game competitions.

We look forward to seeing you all on Monday 7th January 2019.
