Our girls football team is growing in number and it is wonderful to see this relatively new team developing 'strength in depth'.
On Friday, we played a friendly against St Michael's, Stewkley. Although it was a loss for Buckingham Park, it was great to see 19 girls playing during the game.
Congratulations to our winning year 5/6 badminton team for winning the partnership tournament this week.
As the winners we will represent the Mandeville school sports partnership at the county finals which are taking place next Tuesday.
The team will join our year 3/4 team who were runners up in their tournament!
Tesco are no longer offering the school uniform embroidery service. Our uniform will now be available from My Clothing. My Clothing Limited is the UK’s largest provider of school wear and the company behind the Tesco School Uniform service - so their service, uniform and support is very similar.
We still offer uniform through Bucks Schoolwear Plus which is a local retailer with excellent products and customer service.
SSE Women’s FA Cup Final
Saturday 4 May 2019
Visiting Wembley, the home of English football, is a wonderful opportunity for our children.
The SSE women’s FA Cup Final is a family-friendly game, hosted at the stadium, which sees the best women’s teams playing for the premier cup trophy in women’s domestic football. Last season’s final attracted 45,000 supporters as Chelsea Ladies defeated Arsenal Ladies in a thrilling game.
The game is on Saturday 4 May. The kick off time has not yet been confirmed but we will let you know as soon as it has been (last year’s game was at 5.30pm).
We have the chance to purchase tickets for this year’s final at the incredibly low rate of just £7.50 per adult, with children (under 16) getting tickets completely free of charge!
If you would like to purchase tickets at this incredibly low rate, please complete the attached form and return in to school by Friday 25 January. Please also pay for tickets (adult tickets only) using ParentPay (select ‘Pay for other items’ and ‘Women’s FA Cup Final’).
You are welcome to order tickets for family and friends in this way – we just need a Buckingham Park contact for each order - to pay for the adult tickets on ParentPay and to receive the tickets when they arrive in school.
Although some members of staff will be attending, all children will be the responsibility of their parents (or nominated adults) throughout the day.
We will try and get all the Buckingham Park tickets together so that we are seated together in the stadium.
At this stage, transport to and from the stadium will be your responsibility. However, please indicate on the form if you would be interested in paying for coach travel to and from school. If we have enough interest we will investigate costs (as an indication, a full 50 seater coach will cost around £10 per seat).
If you would like to order tickets at the reduced cost, please complete the form below AND pay for adult tickets on ParentPay before Friday 25 January. We will not be able to accept any late orders because we will be ordering the tickets before the end of the month to guarantee the prices.
Our Breakfast Club is very popular and is a super start to the day for many of our children.
Breakfast Club bookings are made through Parent Pay. As the club has grown, we are finding that we are now much more likely to have to limit our numbers and/or increase our staffing.
In order to achieve this, it is important that we know how many children are coming each day well in advance.
For this reason, we are now setting a 'three day exclusion' on our booking system. The Parent Pay booking deadlines are as follows:
If you miss the deadline, it may be possible to book through the school office but this will only be possible if we have remaining spaces. The only way to guarantee your booking is through Parent Pay.
Please note that we can only accept children into Breakfast Club who are pre-booked and pre-paid.
Keeping you up to date with the life of Buckingham Park CE Primary School
