Cost of School Uniforms

Last year, the Govt pledged to cut the cost of school uniforms in England.
By September of this year, schools should have started making the necessary changes to ensure that their uniforms are a fair price for families.

We were ahead of the game and changed our uniform expectations last year to be much easier and more cost effective.

Our family support team are currently working their way through the school to ensure that ALL of our pupils are wearing the correct uniform ALL of the time.

If you have difficulty with the purchasing of or the cost of school uniform please talk to Emma Burrows or TIna Day.

Please support us by ensuring that your child(ren) wear our school uniform EVERYDAY.

We are having a new building built in September.

This will be in our courtyard. It will provide us with some much needed breakout spaces to support our pupils with their emotional wellbeing through 121and small group work.

We can't wait for our new building and to be able to have a naming competition!

You may have heard about our chicks!

We have all been super excited to have them in school and see them hatch from their eggs.

We are even more excited that Miss McGuire has given the go ahead for us to keep the chicks.

Reception children are busy thinking of names and the rest of the school will vote on the names for our chickens.
Don't forget that it is BookTrust Pyjamarama Day tomorrow!
Β£1 contribution please.
*****Have you replied to the use of photo consent?

Please speak to our office if you haven't and are having difficulty.

We really want to fill our new board with our class photos, but need everyone's permission to do so.

Our class photos will be updated every time someone new joins our classes, part of our new welcome to Water Hall program.
Another game that you can play at home!
Practice that sharing and division.
Theatrix Arts will be coming to Stantonbury Theatre to perform The Sand Dragon on Saturday 21st May 2:30pm!

The Sand Dragon is a delightful family show with songs and music, puppets and a magic trick or two. After the show you will have the chance to meet the puppets and create your very own Sand Dragon Puppet!

Offering All Children Aged 3–11 a Rich and Diverse Educational Experience

Operating as usual



Can you (or someone you know) help?

The school has signed up with the children’s literacy charity, Schoolreaders, to get additional support for our children as they learn to read. Schoolreaders finds volunteers and matches them with a local school, and the volunteers go in to school weekly to listen to children read one-to-one during term time.

Can you spare an hour or two each week to listen to children read at school?

No qualifications are needed - just a good command of English and some spare time. With your commitment and support, we can help our children improve their reading skills which greatly increase their life chances.

To find out more and to apply, please go to www.schoolreaders.org All applications are being processed by Schoolreaders.

Volunteers must be aged 18+ and there is no upper age limit; they do not need to be parents, so please refer anyone who might be interested to the Schoolreaders website. Applicants can request Water Hall Primary School by name.

We look forward to welcoming new volunteers.


Good luck to our Year 6 tomorrow who are going to Stantonbury to compete against our other primary schools within the trust!

Look out for the results soon in our weekly newsletter and on Facebook.

Come on Water Hall! πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡


Measles is highly infectious and can be passed on even before the rash appears.

Make sure your child is protected from becoming seriously unwell.


We would like to use our page for lots more details on dates coming up and things we are learning about in school! We would love for more people to engage in our Facebook. Please inform other parents so that they can follow us too!

Please give this post a like if we are reaching you 🫢

#GirlsWill 03/10/2023

In a bid to inspire girls and young women to consider careers within the motorsport industry, Silverstone Museum is offering FREE admission to all girls aged 18 years and under throughout October.

The drive to encourage more females to consider careers in motorsport is essential, as a recent report by More than Equal highlighted how no woman has raced in F1 since the 1970s and female participation represents only 10% across all levels of competitive motorsport. Formula 1’s most recent gender pay gap report, published in 2023, also revealed that just 31% of its workforce is female.

Looking for something to do over the holidays?!

Join our school rock painting group, it's your mission to make someone's day in the form of a hand-painted rock decorated with a friendly face or an inspirational message.

Clover, one of our pupils, has started us off and has hidden rocks on the school site. It would be lovely to have more to join them in and around the school.


Some of our children have attended Ride High this year.
Ride High MK ran a competition for the children to design a picture which would be made into a mosaic for their new beautiful garden.
Ride High supports 120 children per week across MK and we're super proud that Archie and Dawn had their designs chosen.
Both children received a medal and a prize and they were over the moon.

Did you know, years 3-6 all have a log in for TT Rock Stars? We are allowing the children some time in school but also they can play at home! You can download the app or play online. I have set every child a 30 minute challenge per week. It’s a great way of helping them with their times tables! πŸŽΈπŸŽ€βœ–οΈβž— https://play.ttrockstars.com


Year 6 parents:
Good morning from some very tired staff 😴 πŸ˜‚ after enjoying pizza, a fire pit where they toasted marshmallows, film, popcorn and a pamper for the girls, the children finally fell asleep. But by the time the night owls had fallen asleep the early birds had risen! We are having breakfast now but please can we ask for a prompt 9am collection from the staff car park entrance. Lots of brilliant memories made ❀️


Mrs Ayers had lots of fun lighting the fire pit this evening for our Year 6 sleepover marshmallows!

Hopefully they are all asleep now?! 🀞
