Year 5 Swimming Lessons

Dear Parent/Carer

Year 5 pupils will be involved in swimming lessons over this academic year, the aim is for all children to be able to swim by the end of the year, as it is an important life skill to have. The sessions will take place at Bowling Pool and will be led by a  fully qualified swimming teacher.  Please note that:

  • Year 5 girls will be having their swimming lessons between September 2016 – February 2017
  • Year 5 boys will be swimming between February 2017- July 2017

Lessons start on Thursday 15th September 2016 for the girls, these will take place every Thursday until the changeover.

Girls will need to bring the following:

  • Swimming costume
  • A towel
  • A suitable bag to carry swimming things in
  • A bobble or swimming hat to fasten their hair back


Please ensure that swimming things are sent every Thursday, otherwise a session will be missed and the cost of running the session wasted.

Many thanks

School Times

Please remember that Rainbow Primary will close for the summer break on Friday, 22nd july 2016 at 1.30pm.

The school will open on Tuesday, 6th September 2016 at 8.40am.


Children at Rainbow had their say in our school referendum.

Year 6 produced presentations, which they presented to the whole school during assembly, outlining reasons to remain or leave the EU.

Children then voted at the ballot station in school.

Our in school results showed that 68% of children voted remain and 32% voted to leave. This meant that as a school Rainbow voted to remain part of the EU.

Urgent – Parent Mail / PMX

Dear Parent / Carer

It has come to our attention that many parents have not signed up to PARENT MAIL / PMX and many have not VERIFIED or UPGRADED to the new PMX system, unless this is completed, you will not be able to purchase any items from the list below. I thank everyone who has signed up to the system and taking full advantage of this. At present, we are no longer taking payments at reception, therefore it is very important to register and verify as soon as possible to be able to buy or receive the following:

  • Be able to pay for and receive school dinners
  • Uniform
  • Advice on snow day / other weather conditions
  • News letters
  • School trips / running times if your child will be late / early etc.
  • Assemblies
  • Sports tournaments
  • Report absences
  • Reports medical appointments

If any parents are struggling to register on PMX can you please come Wednesday afternoon to register. Can you please bring a valid email address and debit card / credit card, without these 2 items we will be unable to register your account.

I will be available every Wednesday afternoon and will be chasing all parents who have not yet registered.  This is a fantastic tool which will help parents to communicate with the school.

We look forward to seeing you next week.
