End of Term Arrangements Posted on: 11 Dec 2017

Parents/Carers and their families are invited to our Christmas Service on Thursday 21st December 2017 at 7:00pm in Whitburn Parish Church; this is a lovely family occasion so please join us in our traditional carol service. Everyone is welcome but please note that we cannot reserve seats.

There will be a retiring collection at the end of the service in aid of the charity Shelter. The Friends of Whitburn CofE Academy will be selling mince pies with a complimentary glass of sherry after the service.

We will hold our Christmas Service for all pupils on Friday 22nd December 2017, the last morning of the school term, after which pupils will be dismissed at approximately 12:30pm. There will be no scholars’ bus service at this time or school lunches; if your child is entitled to a free school meal then a packed lunch can be provided, please contact the Main Academy Office to request one no later than Wednesday 20th December 2017.

The last day of term will be a non-uniform day, with pupils being encouraged to make a donation of £1 towards the charities Shelter and Dementia UK.

Pupils should be modestly dressed but may wear clothing appropriate to the festive season e.g. Christmas jumpers! Pupils are asked to bring as little as possible to school on this day, with only writing equipment needed.

May I take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and to wish you a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year. I look forward to welcoming back all of our pupils on Monday 8th January 2018.
