  • Queen Elizabeth II has died

    The Queen passed away peacefully yesterday, surrounded by her family.
    We are currently awaiting confirmation from the government as to whether (and when) there will be a bank holiday to mark Her Majesty’s passing.

    Please be patient in the meantime – we will announce as soon as we can if there will be a bank holiday, and what day it will be.

  • ClassDojo Class Swaps

    Good morning everyone!

    We are currently in the process of moving children into their new classes for the new school year – with this in mind, your child may appear to be in two classes for the next couple of days whilst we get everything sorted. The new classes will be titled like : “Piglets 2022-23” for your reference.

    You will still be able to contact your child’s current teachers however their old classes will be closed before September – we will message all parents to let them know the end date!

    You will still be able to see your child’s posts and updates from then, you will just be unable to speak to your child’s previous teachers.

    If you are confused at any point during this process, feel free to give us a call – as a reminder, our number is 01209 713119. Thank you!

  • Fire next to the A30, Avers

    Good afternoon everyone,

    There is currently a fire next to the A30 at Avers, Redruth.

    We advise families take an alternative route of travel as authorities may need to close sections of the A30 to tackle the fire.

    Stay safe out there! ~ The Berries

  • Transitions

    Good morning families,

    We would like to let you know that we are now beginning transitions for those children due to move up into new classrooms as of September. If you would like more information about how transitions are done or how your child has been doing, please message your child’s teacher on ClassDojo.

    If your child is under 18 months old, your child should not be transitioning into a new classroom until after January 2023. ~ The Berries

  • Lost Property

    We would like to remind term-time families that if you have left behind your child’s bag, coat, shoes or anything else, we will be open Monday to Friday from 8am until 6pm throughout the Summer Break.

    You are welcome to pop on by whenever to collect your child’s things. This includes those in Big Tiggers and Eeyores who have now left for School! ~ The Berries

  • Staff Uniform

    We would like to remind families that staff may not be wearing uniform due to the hot weather, in an attempt to be as cool as possible. ~ The Berries

  • Hot Weather Warning

    Over the next few days the weather is due to get quite hot. Please ensure your child brings a sunhat, a drinks bottle and is wearing appropriate clothing for the weather – no string-strap shirts allowed. Thank you! ~ The Berries
