Tuesday 17th October,

Dear Parents,

Parental Consultations

Thank you to everyone who attended parents evening. If you did not manage to make an appointment, please do contact your child’s teacher as soon as possible. Thank you.


If you haven’t yet had chance to view the OFSTED report – do please go on the website and have a read. It will tell you what they looked at and what they discovered. Go to the home page and look under Key Information.

Thank you to parents who have e-mailed/ spoken to congratulate us. Staff at Manston Primary do work extremely hard and your kind words are very much appreciated.

Big Draw

Thank you to those of you who managed to join us for the Big Draw. Children had a splendid day and classes shared their work in assembly at the end of the day, so we could all see what each other had been up to.

If you are interested - Leeds City Art Gallery, which has just re-opened, has a free activity on over the half term holiday from Tuesday 24th to Sat 28th which is a drop in for families. You work with an artist to make a huge tent sculpture full of art experiments. It’s on from 11am – 4pm and sounds great fun if you have some time to spare. All welcome and no booking required.

Halloween Disco

Just a reminder that KS1 disco is on Wednesday from 4.45pm – 5.45pm and KS2 disco from 6pm – 7.15pm. Tickets only £2.

Costumes may be worn, but no face coverings at the KS1 disco and ALL children MUST be collected by an adult.

(NB Dance club will finish at the slightly earlier time of 4.15pm.)

Everyone is welcome, although there is limited seating, so first come first seated. Please note photos / videos are not permitted for safeguarding reasons. Thank you
