 PTA Summer Fair

The PTA are delighted with the recent success of the Summer Fair.  Thank you to everyone for all of your help and support with this event .

We are pleased to announce that we raised in excess of £3000 all of which will go directly to school for the benefit of all the pupils.

 

Foundation Stage Summer Show

 

The children in the Reception Class have had great fun this summer working towards their end of year show "The Humongous Carrot".

This was an adaptation from the traditional tale "The Enormous Turnip".

The children helped to choreograph dance routines, suggest ideas for costume and props

and create the script using their knowledge of planting and growing.

They also decided to add some of the characters from our topics this year, including a friendly dragon and a hen that is able to lay colourful eggs! 

 

 Key Stage 1 Summer Production

Years 1 & 2  showcased their magical production of Mini Beast Madness this week, with obvious gusto and enjoyment, plenty of slick costume changes and well timed exits and entrances. 

They performed songs and dances such as the frenetic 'Buzzin Tonight' along with a group of very cool Dung Beetles, there was a nod to the Blues Brothers in their 'Snail House Blues' routine, a gentle 'Butterfly Lullaby' and a rousing finale number of  'You've Got a Bee in Your Bonnet.'

All throughout the mini beasts were hounded by the relentless Inspector Secticide and her side kicks Snitch and Swat, who were out to exterminate them all! The children  relished the opportunity to perform these well loved songs in front of very appreciative audiences.


Key Stage 2 Show - Alice

The Key Stage 2 children of Alderley Edge Community Primary School have been working hard over the last few weeks busily putting the finishing touches to their summer production of "Alice" which was performed this week.  

It was performed in the Senior School Hall at Alderley Edge School for Girls so enabling the Junior children to perform on a bigger stage as well as learning about stage craft, such as entrances and exits, stage left and stage right and so on.

It showcased the amazing talent of the schools youngsters from Mad Hatters to Lobsters! 

The performance certainly showed their vocal talent in such musical numbers as the caucus race and beautiful soup!

Universal Free School Meals and Income Related Free School Meals

From September 2014 there will be two free school meal schemes - Universal Infant Free School Meals and Income Related Free School Meals.

From September 2014 Central Government plans to introduce a new initiative (Universal Infant Free School Meals) to provide free school meals to all children attending Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.  

Cheshire East Council will continue to administer free school meals to families that receive the qualifying state benefits (Income Related Free School Meals). For this scheme pupils attending Primary and Secondary Schools can be eligible provided their parents are in receipt of a qualifying state benefit.  The list of qualifying state benefits can be viewed at www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/fsm

Schools receive additional funding known as the Pupil Premium.  This funding for the school is based on the number of pupils registered with the Council for free school meals based on income levels.  Therefore any parents who may be eligible based on their income level should still apply by telephone on 0300 123 5012 or alternatively they can apply online at www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/fsm .

Parents who may qualify based on income should still apply to the Council if they are in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits, even if the child will be eligible under the Universal scheme, as this will allow the school to benefit from the Pupil Premium funding.

Schools have been advised that parents in receipt of an ongoing entitlement to Working Tax Credit do not qualify for Income Related Free School Meals regardless of annual income level.  Parents can qualify if they are only in receipt of Child Tax Credit and have an annual income as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs that does not exceed £16,190.00 or alternatively if they have recently ceased to qualify for Working Tax Credit and have been granted the 4 Week Run On of Working Tax Credit. 

If any parent is unsure then they should contact the Council on 0300 123 5012 or call into school and speak to Mrs Rachel French.
