🚨 Irony klaxon 🚨 This week, is all about going to sleep! We’ve got together with Minds Ahead to bring you some expert tips on helping children and young people to develop a healthy sleeping pattern 😴


📚 Happy World Book Day! The highlight of our week of celebration of all things reading is here. We've had a busy week so far:

On Monday visited us to perform A Little Princess; on Tuesday our Artis Foundation sessions fired our imaginations to bring characters to life; Wednesday saw a visit from Alison of
The University of Buckingham Bookshop, who is also the judge of our book cover competition.

We've had surprise drop-ins from some mystery readers, and today we are looking forward to our breakfast reading event, whole school challenges for the children, and a very special World Book Day assembly. Phew!

Luckily our Bedtime Stories themed day means Mrs Bradford will be already wearing her pyjamas after organising such an activity packed week.

After school today, don't forget to come and find a new bedtime story or two to read tonight at our 50p book sale. 📚

🔵🟠 Last minute booking!

Sometimes life happens... you need to work late, the car breaks down, or you simply forgot to book in advance... its suddenly on the day and you can't do school pick up! 😫
The last thing you need is to have the added stress of trying to find last minute childcare.

At S4A we get it... that is why you can book your child into our wraparound care on the same day on an ad-hoc basis... hopefully taking some of the daily stress away! 😊


Happy New Year! Reminder: Thursday 4th of January.
Back to school for years R to 6


It's the end of a long Autumn term at last! Just when Mrs Abu-Rish thought she could put her feet up and relax, Father Christmas asked her to help him load the sleigh with presents for all the children of Steeple Claydon School and Preschool! We hope she gets back from the North Pole in time for Christmas!
May you all have a peaceful and joyous Christmas and New Year.

In Steeple Claydon School, on this special day,
We celebrate minds in a colourful way.
For World Mental Health, we gather and see,
The beauty within each child, you and me.

With smiles that sparkle, like stars in the night,
We learn to be kind, to share and invite,
All feelings and thoughts, big and small,
Because in this world, we cherish them all.

Through laughter and stories, we'll find our own way,
To support one another, come what may.
So let's be mindful, and together we'll stand,
For great mental health in this magical land.
