Birthdays are important days in children’s lives and teachers usually mark theses occasions in class with a badge, sticker, birthday hat etc.  However parents are asked NEVER to give  out invitations in the classroom or anywhere on the school grounds  ( or ask their child to do so)  Too often in the past , this practice has hurt other pupils who feel excluded. Please do not ask a teacher to make an exception for your child as a refusal can sometimes offend. Similarly  to avoid hurt for other children if a group of children  are attending a party they should never be collected together from the classroom door or school grounds.

In accordance with our NUT FREE POLICY  birthday cakes  may not  be shared in school.

We appreciate your co-operation in implementing this policy.
