Non-Uniform Day: Friday 4th March 2022

Dear Parents and Guardians

NON-UNIFORM DAY: FRIDAY 4thth MARCH 2022

We’re sure that, like us, you’ll have been deeply moved by the news coming out of Ukraine. We have been discussing the issue in school (see attachment) and would like to give pupils the chance to help those affected by the conflict. We also know it can be a difficult issue to talk about, there’s some great advice here: Ukraine conflict: How to help yourself, your kids, and others - BBC News

We are therefore holding an additional non-uniform day on Friday 4th March.

  1. Please ask your child to give their suggested £1 donation to their tutor. All proceeds will go to the Ukraine crisis appeal- run by the British Red cross.  This is an event that will be running in schools all over Somerset on Friday. More details about the Red Cross campaign can be found here: Ukraine Crisis Appeal | British Red Cross
  1. Pupils are welcome to wear blue and yellow, if they would like to show their support for the people of Ukraine. 
  1. We are also happy to act as a collection point for a charity called, “Compass Wellbeing”. They are collecting the following items:

 

  • Items for children such as bottles, soothers, sleeping bags for children, nappies, nappy rash cream, wet wipes, powdered milk, baby food.
  • First aid kits.
  • Shower gels, hair shampoo, toothpastes, sopas, tampons, sanitary pads, shaving gels, washing powders/gels etc.
  • New underwear and new socks.
  • Long-life food.

If you would like to donate, please ask your child to bring the items into school on Friday and we will get them to the charity.

For those who have PE or Dance on Friday - don’t forget your PE or Dance kit!

Yours sincerely

Peter Hoare
Head
