Conflict in Ukraine
We are all aware of the awful crisis in the Ukraine and the desperate plight of people trying to flee the awful conditions, so in true community spirit Brompton Community Primary School collected donations with the help of Hambleton County Council and volunteer HGV drivers in Darlington. A huge thank you to all those who have already sent in donations, they have been collected and are now safely on the way to the people who need them.
Year 6 had a super trip to Eden Camp Museum on the 7th April. The trip consolidated their learning and understanding of WW2 and events that led up to and beyond this era in History. Our children were a credit to us regarding their behaviour – well done Y6.

Young Voices Concert
Our school choir have been working hard for many months; learning words and actions for 27 songs. A lot of the songs were very challenging but that is what we at Brompton Community Primary School like best! So, we rose to the challenge and joined 5000 other pupils to sing in the biggest child choir in the world on Wednesday 27th April in Sheffield Arena. The event was outstanding and memorable for every single pupil, adult and family member that attended the concert. Mrs Forbes was one of our parents that was able to attend the concert:
Young Voices 2022 – Brompton Community Primary First Arena Gig!!
What a privilege it was to be a part of this incredible experience. A choir that is the biggest youth choir event in the world that has been running for 25 years. As a parent and a governor it was a proud, proud moment! The atmosphere was electric and the children had the opportunity to be part of a 5000 strong choir, supported by a professional band, learn to beat box, have dancers and also to sing with professional singers from a Voice TV show winner, Ruti, to a singer who is in the band of Strictly Come Dancing and has been in Harry Potter. We were lucky enough to have a great view of our choir, the enthusiasm stretched from the children to the staff and of course Mrs Byrne who I am sure this meant a great deal to as music is so important to her. As parents we did beat box battles and dancing and were able to embrace the experience too. For me it was incredible to see the choir there and having the experience of a lifetime. Arena stars of the future there I am sure. Thank you to the staff and Mrs Byrne for this amazing opportunity which I am sure the choir will talk about for a long time and finally to the children of the Choir, you are truly awesome and should be so proud of yourselves!
Lisa Forbes – Parent Governor
Our School office is open from 8.30am to 4.30pm. If we are unable to answer your call, please leave a message on the answering service and your query/message will be dealt with as soon as possible.
Please can all Dinner Money and Before and After School Club money be paid a week in advance by your child’s ParentPay account. You may be asked to bring a packed lunch for your child or refused a session at the Before and After School club if sufficient funds are not in place on your child’s account.
Any last minute or important messages are sent to you by text or email. To this end it is vital that we have your most recent mobile phone number and email address. Please contact the office if you DO NOT receive school texts and emails. Thank you.
20’s Plenty for us… making your place a better place to be!
We have been working hard in school designing posters to promote the ‘20’s Plenty’ request for the village and we will be putting these posters around Brompton in the hope that it will remind motorists to slow down when driving through Brompton. Could we please insist that the Staff car park and front of school is not used for dropping children off between 8.45am and 9.00am or for collecting children between 3.00pm and 3.15pm or from nursery at 11.45am. Should you need to use the car park in these times, please contact the school office. This is a major cause for concern and our priority is the safety of all of the children going to and from school. Please do not be offended if you are asked to leave the car park. Parking at the front of school in the coach bays is not permitted and fines will be issued by Scarborough Parking Attendants who monitor this area frequently. Our Parking Buddies have helped alleviate cars pulling in for drop off but sadly this is still a regular occurrence. Please do not use the front of school as a roundabout. Please also be considerate to our neighbours and not use their parking spaces or pull up in front of their houses on Station Road or on The Green. Please park in Weavers Pavilion car park next to school to avoid any safety issues. Please remind your child to dismount their bikes/scooters when entering the school gates. They must walk with their bikes/scooters to the appropriate bays.
There is a new menu in place for the summer term and you should have had a copy already for your child to choose their lunch option. If you require a copy please contact the school office. Copies can be found on our school website.
From 1 April 2018 the Government introduced new regulations for people claiming free schools meals who receive Universal Credit. The change means that if your net annual earnings are more than £7,400 you will not be eligible to claim free school meals. Pupils who received free school meals before 1 April 2018 and pupils who are assessed as eligible after 1 April 2018 will continue to receive free school meals until the end of the universal roll out period. This applies even if they no longer meet the eligibility criteria at a subsequent point during the roll out period. At the end of the Universal Credit roll out period, any existing pupil who no longer meets the eligibility criteria will continue to receive free school meals until the end of their current phase of education, i.e. primary or secondary school.
- Universal Credit, provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400, as assessed by earnings from up to three of your most recent assessment periods (£616.67 per month);
- Income Support;
- Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance;
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance;
- Support under part six of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999;
- The guarantee element of Pension Credit;
- Child Tax Credit, provided you are also not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual household gross income that does not exceed £16,190 (as assessed by HMRC); or
- Working Tax Credit run-on, paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit.
If you feel that you may qualify for free school meals for your child there is a form to fill in from school or you can complete online by visiting https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/free-school-meals. If you do not register, even though you are eligible, the school will miss out on the financial allowance for Free School meal pupils. Therefore we would urge you to register even if you do not want your child to take up the opportunity of a free meal.
Can we please ask that you provide your child with a balanced packed lunch that will suffice their hunger for the day. There are healthy suggestions for your child’s packed lunch on our school website.
As you know pupil attendance is imperative in order that children do not miss any of their lessons during the academic year. If your child is absent they will be given extra lessons in order to ‘catch up’ after their absence. This will ensure that they ‘keep up’ with the teaching and learning in their class. In school we are taking it very seriously and have many children who achieve the 100% Attendance certificate at the end of every academic year. However, those children who fall below the Local Education Authority’s 96% specification will receive a letter regarding their attendance in line with the school’s OFSTED obligations.
This Year’s class attendance so far:
Year 6 – 94.6%
Year 5 – 92.9%
Year 4 – 93.5%
Year 3 – 94.2%
Well Done Year 2 – 96.6%
Year 1 – 95.5%
F2 – 95.4%
Punctuality is also very important as vital activities take part at the very beginning of the day that your child will miss out on if they are not in school on time – 8.45 am for all children. If your child is ill or to be late for any reason please inform the school office by 9.00am. You will be contacted if your child is not at school by 9.15am so the school register can be completed (in line with our safeguarding policy). The school gate will be opened and supervised by a member of staff at 8.45am. Your child should not arrive before this time as there is no supervision on the playground before this time. The school day begins at 8.55am, please ensure your child has arrived at school by this time so that registration and dinner requirements can be fulfilled before lessons start.
Well done to all of our children for a very high percentage of attendance in all classes, however, please remember one child’s absence has an impact on the whole class percentage. Well done Year 2.
Absence and Illness
From time to time children are sick either at home or at school. Unfortunately, it is not possible to distinguish between the causes, and therefore it is essential that the same rule of 48 hours absence applies in all cases of sickness or Diarrhoea. Therefore if your child is sick at school, we will ask you or your emergency contact to take your child home and they should not return for 48 hours. We appreciate that this is inconvenient in many cases, but please appreciate that we do this in all cases to reduce the risk of infection for all children and staff in school.
In the current health climate we are encouraging children to wash their hands properly in school and at home. If you would like any further information you can find it at email@example.com and some information on our school website: www.brompton.n-yorks.sch.uk
If your child is unwell to come to school for reasons other than sickness and diarrhoea your child should return to school as soon as they have recovered. Your child’s attendance will be marked accordingly and on their return they will be given catch-up to keep up work for completion. Please ensure that any absence is reported daily to the school office before 9.00am.
We are looking forward to working with you all and supporting the development of Brompton Community Primary School. It is always a pleasure to see the work that is going on in school and how happy the children are in their learning. Here is a reminder of who our school Governors are:
Mr Nigel Hebron – Chair Person; Mrs Caroline Rayner – clerk to Governors
