Class photographs

Class photographs were taken before Easter and are available to purchase online. A link has been sent out today for you to place your order directly with Tempest.

Summer term events

We are still waiting for guidance from the DfE regarding school protocols for the summer term. As of yet there have been no changes and therefore we cannot plan for end of term events. We do however know that the Year 5/6 residential trip will be taking place in June. As soon as we have new guidance and are able to plan anything else, we will let you know.

Term dates

This term we will break for half term on Friday 28th May and return to school on Monday 7th June. We break up for the summer on Friday 16th July and the children will start back in September on Monday 6th. There will be 3 inset days for staff 1st-3rd September.

Food hygiene inspection

We had our food hygiene inspection this week and have successfully retained out 5 star rating. Well done and thank you to our lunchtime catering team.

Forest School

We are really pleased that have now returned to our forest school site at the sportsfield for these sessions. Thank you to the sportfield committee for allowing this to happen.


The school sports partnership has now begun to run some of the inter school tournaments. This week our upper KS2 girls participated in a netball tournament and came joint 2nd. Well done. Further tournaments and festivals are planned this term.

Amazon wish list

We have added a few more items to the wish list on Amazon of books and resources which we are in need of. Should you wish to, you can purchase some resources for the school. We would be really grateful for any help you feel you could give. Please use the link

A big thank you for the items which we have already received.

Face masks

In school staff will continue to wear face coverings when a social distance cannot be maintained, however we will not be wearing them outside. Parents will not be required to wear a mask when picking up children outside from now on.

Food allergies

Please be mindful that we have children in school with nut allergies. We ask that you do not put items with nuts or nut products into lunchboxes.


Monday 26th April- after school PE sessions start

Friday 28th May- break up for half term

Best Wishes,

Cathy Gouldstone and Lucy Kent and all the staff at North Marston School.

Our value for this term is courage
