Christmas Around The World


Friday 30 November 2019

As part of our Rights Respecting School Programme, we ask parents to get involved in our ‘Celebration of Advent and Christmas Traditions Around the World’ by sending in traditional Christmas decorations, clothes, ornaments, food or any other Christmas traditional items.

This will give our children an understanding of different cultures and foods enjoyed by others throughout the world.

We hope to have a display table for each culture.

If you wish to be involved, please contact the school office and leave your details.

Due to allergies, we ask that foods DO NOT CONTAIN NUTS OR TRACES OF NUTS.

Cash For Clobber


In an effort to encourage our staff and pupils to recycle old goods, the Eco Council are asking all members of our school to participate in the 'Cash for Clobber' scheme.

It is a great way to raise money for school funds and a way of recycling old clothes which otherwise end up in the landfill site.

Numeracy Challenge

Please do not send any types of foods containing any type of nuts into school for lunches as we have children with severe nut allergiesThese items include biscuits and bars with a nutella type filling or croissants containing hazlenuts or any other types of nuts. 

Food containing any types of nut product will have to be confiscated.

Can all parents please check the labels on food being sent into school to ensure there are no traces of nuts.

We cannot allow products in school if the label states; "may contain traces of nuts."

We have children with severe nut allergies in the school.

Please help keep these children safe while in St Clare's Abbey.
