Harvington C of E First and Nursery School

‘Together we love, learn and grow’

Week commencing 5th March 2018

We are excited to let you know about our latest fundraising event for our school charity of the year - Vale Wildlife!
Our talented journalists, who produce the pupil newsletter (HFS news), are running a poetry competition! Everyone can enter, from Nursery to Year Five and there is no theme, so you can compose your poem about anything you like!
We have extended the deadline for entries to Friday 16th March, there will, of course, be dazzling prizes for the best poems and the winners will have the opportunity to perform their verse to the rest of the school. There is no fee to enter the competition but we will be compiling everyone's work and creating our very own Harvington Poem Book, which will be on sale before the end of term.
Please email your entry to the office (, any handwritten copies can be placed in the basket outside Year Five.
Thanks as ever for your on-going support!
Mrs Sale, the HFS News Journalists and the Charity Ministers


From today until Wednesday 14th March we will be hosting a Book Fayre in the school hall! Your child will visit the Book Fayre with their class and will have the opportunity to buy a book to bring home (book prices range from £2.99 to £6.99). Please note that children can buy as many books as they would like.

The Book Fayre will also be open for parents to visit on Monday 12th from 3pm to 3.30pm

The school will receive money from each book sold and this will be used to improve our own class library in school.

Please send your child into school with their Book Fayre money in a named envelope.


There is an opportunity for you to meet with your child’s class teacher on Monday 26th or Tuesday 27th March.  Information regarding how to book an appointment has been sent out to you via text and/or email. Please follow the link on the message when you receive it. Meetings are held in the school hall, please enter via the Nursery gate.
