Fireworks, ‘Guys’ and bonfires seem to have been forgotten in the doom and gloom that the news of a new national lockdown thrust upon us. Our fabulous PTA were hugely disappointed not to be able to plan for or host the terrific event...

New campus 
Our long and eagerly-awaited planning inquiry for the development of the Ridgeway site is nearly upon us, and we are calling for your help and support. The inquiry will be held online by an independent planning inspector from 18 November for eight days.

As we celebrate our diamond jubilee in our 60th year, we would dearly love to cement our plans to bring us all together at one-purpose-built, future-proof campus fit for our quality teaching and the families we care so much about. Letters of support for the plans are welcomed by the inspector and help form a good picture of all the significant benefits arising from our plans that will so positively affect a wide-range of people in our community. More information is being sent to all our families and friends, so we do hope you can help us and show your support and write to: tim.salter@planninginspectorate.gov.uk by: Wednesday 17 November 2020. Include the relevant planning references in your subject line (or at the top of your email): 
APP/TO355/W/20/3249117 – Claires Court School
APP/T0355/W/20/3249119 – Sports Pitches and Pavilion

For details of the plans you can visit our website.

Wednesday 11 November - Wear red to remember 
In support of the British Legion Poppy Day and Remembrance Day we are asking the pupils to wear mufti and wear something red for the day for a £1 donation into the school which we, in turn, will send to the British Legion. This is a change to the normal poppies which are usually on sale but due to Covid-19 restrictions these are not available to us this year. Thank you for helping support this worthwhile charity. If your son has PE, he should wear something which is appropriate to wear during this lesson.

Flu vaccination - Monday 7 December 2020
Have you completed the e-consent form for your son to have the vaccination?  Deadline for completing this is today Friday 6 November. The school code which you will be asked to enter is BK110153B - please see further information about the flu vaccination for boys in Reception to Year 6.

The race for knowledgeThe race for knowledge

Whilst the world has to wait another year for the Tokyo Olympic Games to take place, our budding Olympians have lost no time in learning more  about the games and some of its participants.
Our schools' history

As Claires Court reached a milestone this September and celebrated 60 years of providing high quality education in Maidenhead, our Junior Boys in Year 2 set out to learn a little bit more about the history of their school.
