To celebrate 150 years of Alice in Wonderland and raise funds for the school, the Friends of Bliss will be hosting ‘Bliss in Wonderland’ at this year’s village Fete on Saturday 13th June, 2-5pm.

The fun will include an Alice themed fancy dress competition, £1 to enter with a prize for the best dressed to be announced at 4pm, Cheshire Cat Hunt, Cake Stall and Refreshments, Book Sale, Hedgehog Croquet and other games.

We are looking for donations of cakes, Alice themed if possible although not essential to sell on the day. If you are able to help please can you leave any cakes at the school office on Friday 12th June and we will collect from there.

School governor – Andy Watt to skydive for charity

Hello and Welcome from Team Santander Skydive
Santander Sky diving

A group of six men, young at heart and passionate to succeed have “dug deep” and taken on the challenge of their first skydive.

It is not to prove their bravery, nor to impress, nor overcome any fears – this inspiring team have taken on the challenge and set a target of raising £2,500 in aid of a very worthy cause. All money raised is in aid of the St. Francis’ Children’s Society (SFCS) to help a vulnerable child find a forever family.

Please help Andy Watt, Nathan Jakes, Simon Masih, Angel Sainz de la Cruz, Adam Spencer and Dipen Dhokia to achieve their target.

Please donate generously !

Many Thanks

Andy, Nathan, Simon, Angel, Adam and Dipen


About St. Francis’ Children’s Society

St. Francis’ Children’s Society (SFCS) is a voluntary adoption agency which seeks to make a difference to vulnerable children’s lives by finding them permanent families. SFCS operate across Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, and are now expanding into East Anglia and Lincolnshire. SFCS is rated Outstanding by OFSTED. As a registered charity and limited company, our work is entirely charitable and non-profit making. Their Adoption Connections service offers an open-door policy. Currently in the UK, there are over 4,000 children in need of an adoptive family, and we welcome all kinds of adopters for all kinds of children, regardless of age, race, cultural background, religion, marital status or sexual orientation. As well as finding new families for children awaiting adoption, SFCS offers an extensive range of support services for adopters, and indeed anyone affected by adoption

The Birth Connections service offers advice, support and counselling to birth parents and other family members who have lost a child to adoption and are struggling to come to terms with that loss. We also offer family tracing services and appropriate counselling to adults who were adopted as children via our Building Connections service. SFCS values and respects everyone who is affected by adoption, and our ‘cradle to grave’ service is what makes us unique.


Thank you

Many thanks to everyone for supporting the Fairtrade cafe and book sale. The cafe raised £50 for Traidcraft.
I would also like to say a huge well done to class 5. Off their own backs, they decided to donate their own money and hold a silence to raise money for Comic Relief. It was a quiet day’s teaching!

Please don’t forget to spend the £1 book day token with your child!

Thanks again for all your support, Miss Thompson

NSPCC update

Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for all of your support with the NSPCC Sponsored Spelling Bee. The school managed to raise a total of £2059.13 which is absolutely fantastic! This money will enable the NSPCC to continue their vital work supporting children, a charity that is clearly close to our hearts.

Thank you all once again.

Royal Albert Hall

What an amazing day we had at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday! We are officially Guinness World Record Breakers and I’m very proud to have taken our children to take part. Their behaviour was brilliant and they thoroughly enjoyed the whole event.  A big thank you to all the parents who came to support us, we raised just under £450 from donations for tickets. I’m so glad that you all had a great day too.

Our final fund raising event for the work of the Street Child World Cup Charity will be the

Brazilian Carnival Party Night in the Village Hall on Friday 14th March 7.30 – 11.45pm.

There will be live music from the Northampton Samba Bandits, (you can join in too if you wish) disco, auction of fabulous prizes, raffle and bar. Tickets are on sale in school and from staff on the playground at £5 each.

Thank you in anticipation of your support for this very worthy cause.
