Newsletter 19th May 2023

Dear Parents and Carers,

::Mouse rainbow.tiff The Friends of Mousehold School really need your help. They are currently making arrangements for The School Summer Fayre, to be held on Friday 30th June, and would appreciate the help of parents. All proceeds raised will go towards purchasing new outdoor play equipment as our current equipment has unfortunately got to the point where it needs to be replaced. Here is a picture of the equipment we are looking to purchase with the help of the friends

Annual Parent Survey

Please can all parents and carers complete the parent survey on the Reach More Parents App. Thank you if you have already completed it. The deadline is Friday 26th May.

Partnership News

The Senior Leadership teams from both schools have been working together to plan the transition for the current year 2 children to GWJS. This will be after half-term and a date will follow soon. We will ensure the transition is smooth for all children and we will arrange extra visits to the junior school for the children who would benefit from extra transition.

Please take time to look at our school websites. You can read about our curriculums and get a feel for both schools:


You will see a senior leader and our Parent Support Advisor on the playground most days before school and at the end of the day. We are there to welcome you and also to listen. Please share with us anything that is worrying you or something you might need help with. Small things can become big things if not handled quickly. It is an important part of our job and we want to help you.

I would also like to take this opportunity welcome Mrs Greenwood to our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) team.

Please see our website for all of our policies and more information about safeguarding

Designated Safeguarding Leads

Mr Tolson, Mr Smith, Miss Balachandre, Mrs Greenwood and Miss Wood.

These members of staff monitor and manage all safeguarding practices and ensure staff are supported and have the training they need. Please ask to see one of these adults if you are worried about the safety of a child at school.

If you have a safeguarding concern about a child out of school hours then the number to ring is:

CADS – Children’s Advice and Duty Service – 0344 800 8020.

A Message from our Mental Health Champions

As Mental Health champions, we’re great advocates of doing things to refuel emotionally.  If we are refreshed ourselves, it will often mean we can be more productive in the things we are doing and we may also find it easier to care and support those around us.

Taking part in activities that we enjoy can help us not to feel so depleted.  We’ve chosen to focus on a recipe this week for you to try at home!  You may want to try this on your own first, but you might also consider including your children and cooking together.  It can be a great family activity and children are often more adventurous at trying something new, if they’ve made it themselves.


Try these two home-made pizza bases, one yeast based, the other using a scone recipe.

OR if you don’t fancy making a base from scratch, use a shop-bought English muffin or a flour tortilla wrap.

Happy cooking!
