Weekly Newsletter - Friday 19th July 2019
This is the final newsletter of this academic year. On Monday we are holding a leavers assembly for Mrs. Turner, who is starting out on a new venture in teacher training. We wish her well. Miss Tinker is getting married in August and staff are pleased to be sharing this day with her.
You will be pleased to know that Mr. Bradley is on the road to recovery after spending most of this week in and out of hospital. He will be back in school next week.
The Year 6 leaver’s service is always an emotional highlight of the year and we look forward to watching this with parents/carers and family members at 9.15 am, on Wednesday (in school).
Mr. Williamson has been busy updating the gardening area, which he hopes to complete during the summer break – weather permitting! He has planned an extensive list of jobs for the summer holiday, in addition to the deep cleaning of the school, which include:
- 5 new classroom sinks (not Year 3 and Year 1)
- New floor for the year 4, 5 and 6 cloakroom areas,
- New carpet for Reception classroom, staff room and Inclusion Managers office
- Electrical maintenance work following our 5-year check
- New school server is being installed
The children will bring home their end of year reports today. We hope you enjoy reading them.
HUGE congratulations to Oliver Clements and India Harby in their latest music exams. Oliver has achieved an incredible distinction in his Grade 1 guitar, with a score of 136. I don’t think I have ever known a pupil achieve such a high score. India has achieved a merit in her Grade 3 cornet exam. Grade 3 is also a tremendous achievement for a year 5 pupil. Well done!!!
A Message from Edward Lawton
I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Lower Peover Primary School for their donations given on your non-uniform day for the Meningitis Research Foundation as part of my trek up Mount Kilimanjaro. The school managed to raise a grand total of £195.20. This is a brilliant amount as it now means I have just over £200 to go to reach my fundraising target of £3,000.
Since Edward wrote this thank you, he has now beaten his target and has raised £3,113.79. His dad Howard Lawton quotes, on Facebook, ‘Thanks to all who have donated to this cause, all he needs to do now is to get to the top of Kilimanjaro, in September!’
Attendance – the class with the highest weekly attendance is Year 5 well done! The children who have achieved 100% attendance will receive a certificate and prize on the last day of term.
Dojo Winners- The winning team is Red Team (Rowling) with 535 points.

What a weekend we all had at CampFest! The atmosphere around school was just fantastic from start to finish and everyone who attended (both children and adults) had a wonderful time. The music on Friday was amazing, the drinks were flowing, and we sold over 140 pizzas! The fun continued through Saturday with lots more activities for the children and adults. The drinks were flowing again from incredibly popular cocktail bar on Saturday night. This weekend saw Lower Peover School community at its best - we hope everyone had an amazing time and if you didn’t manage to experience CampFest this year, make sure it’s in your diary for next year. FLPS would like to thank everyone who supported the event for pulling together and filling all the volunteer slots - it literally couldn’t have gone ahead without this support. A huge thank you to Saran Forshaw, Mr Bradley and the amazing CampFest Crew for all their work behind the scenes and their tireless work over the weekend. Not only was it an incredible weekend but it raised almost £4,500 for school - amazing!
After the success of the Ball in October, we are holding the event again. The Ball will be held on Saturday 19 October and will be in the amazing Courthouse again like last year. Tickets will be £50 each to include a fantastic three course meal and what promises to be an amazing night at the Courthouse with music and plenty of dancing. Please book your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
FLPS would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has attended and supported our events over the past 12 months. Together we have raised almost £17,000 for our lovely school this academic year!
The staff of Lower Peover thank you for your support during the last year and we hope that you all have a relaxing summer break. I am sure you will join me in thanking all the staff for their dedication and hard work during this year. I have received many emails reflecting this, which have been passed on to the staff…In particular, following the ‘Palm Oil’ Exhibition and the ‘Hoodwinked’ production. We already have next year’s project lined up!
A special thank you to Rev. Jane Lloyd and St Oswald’s Church for the use of the church during the year, we wish her every success in her new Parish. In addition, our thanks to the committee of Plumley Village Hall who support us in our productions.
