Staff Absence

Currently, we are experiencing a high number of staff absences, particularly across the Inclusion/SEND team and Reception.

Fortunately, staff members at Osborne are more than willing to cover for absence colleagues but we are unable to undertake all of their duties.

We would therefore, ask for your patience if you are waiting for a response from any of these members of your staff.


School Crossing Patrol Warden

Unfortunately, Barry, I have been informed today that our crossing patrol warden will no longer be available for duty.

Therefore, will be no crossing warden until someone else can be recruited. If you are interested in applying for the position please see the advert, under job vacancies on the school’s website.


Hardship Fund

Due to high levels of demand we have been informed of the following;

The Household Support Fund will close to new applications from 12 pm tomorrow Friday 25th March.

BSVC have stated whilst they will endeavour to awarded payment to all eligible applications submitted to this point however there is a risk that due to the volume of forms submitted funds may run out before all payment have been made.

Spring is here thank goodness, and along with the sunshine this week, the longer days as of this coming Sunday 27th March.

The spring digital magazine is full of great ideas to enjoy everything that Spring offers… crafting, gardening and enjoying park life that’s just on the doorstep. There is a great feature on ‘10 ways to love the Earth’ ( page 26) to encourage parents and kids to get out and about and learn more about the environment in a fun way along with lots more things to do.


PS, if you enjoy a bit of baking, the Bundt cake (page 19) is definitely worth a go.



Easter Holiday Activities Programme Codes for Free School Meal Families (this is not the same as Universal Infant School Meals.)


The Easter Holiday Activities Programmes is aimed at children eligible for free school meals from reception to 11 years old.


Families can visit to book their children free places (once you have received a code) to take part in a local club and enjoy the mix of fun, action-packed activities and tasty food provided through the programme.


Once we have received the code by the end of next week, school will send out a letter with your code on.
