Week A

Abbeyfield School runs on a fortnightly timetable. The week commencing 18th March runs to the Week A schedule.

Bake Off

We are excited to advertise our annual staff and student bake off. We are raising money for Stand Up to Cancer and are looking for creative yet tasting bakers! There is no criteria other than it needs to be edible.

Please bring all cakes to Miss Sharp in the Performing Arts office before school on Friday 5th April. Cakes will be judged by Mrs Robson and the student leadership team Break A and then sold from Mr Hall’s classroom window Break B.

Prices will be between 50p/£1 depending on the size, however all donations welcome!

We look forward to seeing this year’s skills!

Non-uniform day

Tomorrow the 15th March is a non-uniform day for students and staff of Abbeyfield School. A small donation of £1 is requested to wear casual clothes and all donations will go to Comic Relief.

The normal rules regarding jewellery remain the same.

Knife Crime Presentations

This morning we were pleased to be able to welcome visitors from the Offending team, funded by the Northampton Community Safety Partnership, to give presentations about Knife Crime to students in Years 7, 8 and 10. Northamptonshire Police were also present with a ‘Knife Arch’ which is used to detect knives (and any other metal objects).

The students found the information given both eye-opening and useful, a

nd hopefully the messages they received will increase awareness and enable them to make safe choices in the future. Parents are encouraged to discuss the issues covered with their children.

Students in Year 9 had a similar presentation in December.
