Fit and Fed
Plymouth City Council has received funding from the Department of Education to deliver a number of FREE holiday clubs this summer to ensure that children on free school meals enjoy a happy and healthy holiday. The Fit and Fed holiday clubs will provide a safe and fun environment where children can experience a wide range of amazing activities including sports, dance, arts and crafts and much more. Every child will also receive a healthy nutritional meal or packed lunch each day. There are over 45 clubs taking place across the city at different times and for different age groups. Visit www.plymouth.gov.uk/fitandfed for more information. Note – due to building work in our dining hall, this won’t be held at High View this year only.
Thank you to all who supported our summer fair on Wednesday, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did in this lovely sunny weather. It was also great to see Pantosaurus showing an appearance on behalf of the NSPCC, delivering important safety messages to our children. Thank you to Mrs Hancock, Mrs Lloyd Miss Warrington, Mrs Keanie, Mrs Bush and Mrs Swain and all the staff for their help and support.

PLASTIC FREE PLEDGE – NOW WE NEED YOUR HELP!
As you know, High View have taken the pledge to become a single use plastic free school in order to support our environment. Having investigated things which we can change, we have noticed that lots of children who have a packed lunch don’t have refillable drink bottles. We would like to stop the use of single use plastic drinks i.e. fruit shoot etc., therefore we will now be providing juice, milk or water for children who do not have a reusable bottle. Please can we ask that your child only brings in a refillable bottle or has a school supplied drink from now on?
Thank you for your support.
