Good afternoon parents and carers,

This is a gentle reminder to order your child/ren's Christmas dinner by Friday if you want them to have one. This is for ALL years, we still have only had about 25% of children's names put forward for a lunch. Early Years and Years 1 and 2 don't have to pay but Years 3 and upwards, please make sure your child has the minimum £2.30 in their lunch account on the day of their meal (unless you receive Free School Meals). Follow the link which has been on the Cann Hall Newsletter for the last two weeks. Kitchen will need the final numbers by Friday so they can order enough food.

🎄Christmas card fundraising 🎄

Dear parents and carers,

All children, that completed a Christmas Card template at school, will be bringing the ‘proof card’ home in the next few days.

Should you wish to purchase any items please follow the instructions on the card given.

You will need to go to and enter the codes supplied on your card, and confirm your child’s name and class. The name and class you enter prints on the products you order.

You then approve the artwork if you’re happy. Once the artwork has been approved you are given a link to the online shop to order.

Please note that there is only a very limited time to order - the Christmas shop will close at 23:59 on Wednesday 25th October 2023.

Should you choose to order we recommend you keep the card template in case of queries as it contains unique codes assigned to your child. Unfortunately, if your child didn’t complete a card in school we will be unable to offer this opportunity to you.
Kind regards
