Book Hut

We have had an exciting week with the introduction of our new book hut in the KS1 playground. It has been fantastic to see so many children and families using the hut to borrow and take home books. All books are free to families and children at Nightingale. Feel free to borrow and take home the books for as long as you wish or swap a book and keep it. If you have any book donations we would really appreciate it so that we can keep the hut stocked up at all times. We would like to say a huge thank you to SKY for donating 800 books for our children and families. Reading is the most important skill a child can have and we are thrilled our children get this wonderful resource. 


We would like to remind parents that we have a new communication system called Arbor. We can use this app to communicate directly with individual parents about learning and behaviour. This level of communication cannot be replicated via paper so we would encourage you to sign up so that you can have the best possible communication with us. 

If you need help please contact the school office and or Mr Reynolds.

Goodbye and Good luck
