The Rotary Club Swimathon is now in its 30th year and Carr Hill has been entering a team for the last nine.    The Swimathon is a great annual community event, raising thousands of pounds for charity.  Our children decided they would like to raise money for the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance.  Funds will also go to the Rotary Club charities: The Guildford Eye Project and Bassetlaw Young Carers. To earn their sponsorship money, each swimmer needed to swim for just under fifteen minutes in a bid to complete as many lengths as possible in that time.  The children totally smashed their targets and previous personal records with the total number of lengths swam by our children in thirteen minutes being 170! The children have been promised over £700 in sponsorship.  We are very proud of our children who are willing to give up their own time on a Saturday afternoon for such worthwhile causes and would like to thank all our parents and carers for their support too.

This week the children in Foundation got into the Olympic Spirit, learning about the spectacle of the opening ceremony and the different sports involved.


It is with great sadness that I have to let you know that, following the incident outside school last Monday, our pupil Seth Bartle died on Sunday 21st January, . He was surrounded by his family.

We have been in touch with Seth’s family, who wanted his friends to know what had happened. Your child’s class teacher has talked about Seth’s death in a way that they understand and has taken time to answer some of their questions. Seth’s family have asked that they are given space and time to grieve in private.

You should know that the staff and children have been amazing in how they have supported each other. Following advice, we have been able to keep the normal pattern of the day, whilst having the time to comfort each other when this has been needed.

As I said in my letter last week, it is important that our children are given the opportunity to ask questions, if they have any worries. The advice we have been given is that we talk openly about Seth having died.

Lastly, if you yourself have any worries about how your child is responding to the news of Seth’s death, please talk with their class teacher or contact me through the school office.
