Sports Day

Please  join us for our Sports Day on Wednesday 13th June at 1pm in the field opposite the school. Please can children wear a T-shirt in the colour of their house as follows:

Water - Blue

Air - White/Yellow

Fire - Red/Orange

Earth - Green/Brown

The children have been told their house colour, which is the same as last year!.  Reception children and anyone new to school this year will have also been told but please speak to the class teacher if unsure.  If any problems finding a t-shirt please just wear your PE shirt and we use a school bib.


A reminder that the PTA is running the refreshment stall at the Village Fete on Saturday 23rd June, so will be asking for donations of cakes to be brought to school on the morning of Friday 22nd. Paper plates will be coming home in book bags nearer the time.

We also need people to help on the stall on the day of the fete. If you could spare some time to help, please email pta@hagbourne.oxon.sch.uk or speak to a member of the PTA in the playground.

ParentMail App

Now we have 67% of families who have downloaded  the ParentMail App.  To do this, simply search ParentMail App in the App store, it is very easy to set up but please do come and speak to Sammy in the office and she can help you.

We would like to reduce the amount in the newsletter and will be adding dates to the ‘events’ section of the app so that this will become a diary for easy reference.

Dangerous Parking

Dear parents /carers,


I would like to remind those who travel by vehicle to and from school, that causing an obstruction, parking on the path or yellow zig-zags markings is a non-endorsable offence, and a fine can be issued of between £30 and £50 for each offence.    


We do understand that parking can be frustrating, so would urge people who live locally to the school to walk if it is within distance, or park off a side road that is local to the school and has no restrictions.


Thames Valley Police will be keen to enforce any of the above mentioned offences should issues continue. Dangerous parking means an increased risk of accident to the children.


Please think before you park

Regards, Thames Valley Police – Didcot Neighbourhood Policing Team


If your child has a verruca, please can they wear verruca socks or have them treated correctly for swimming.

Home link worker

Matt Gavin, our Home Link Worker, is still available to speak to parents to offer advice on any concerns/parenting issues you may have from 2-3pm on a Wednesday afternoon.

Matt can give advice on helping to manage behaviour, boundaries and rules at home. If you would like to speak to him, please make an appointment at the office.
