To celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee, Priestley Primary School are going to be holding a Jubilee Event at the school on Monday, 23 May 2022.


During the school day children will be taking part in Jubilee related activities in the morning and then enjoying a street party in the afternoon, followed by a Fete after school, from 3 pm to 4 pm, for parents, carers and families to attend. 


We will be holding two Jubilee competitions, which will be judged on the day:

  • Best Hat 

  • Celebration Cake

Entries need to be brought to school on the morning of Monday, 23 May ready for judging later in the day.

We are also holding a raffle to win Jubilee Hampers. Tickets are £1 per strip and will be on sale at the end of the day by the bike sheds.


Please see Parents letters for more details

The termly payment will go live on ParentPay by Friday 8 April, please make your payment by Monday 23 May. Without your support these wonderful experiences would not be able to go ahead.

If you have not yet paid for Term 4 please make your payment as soon as possible.


Due to the celebrations for the Queens Jubilee on Monday 23 May, Avocet will not be swimming, we would hate them to miss out on the celebrations.


The children are planned to swim until Monday 13 June but a decision has been made that due to the fact  there are so few sessions left until the end of the year, it wouldn't be worth sending another class. Therefore, Avocet will continue with swimming until Monday 11 July, with the exception of Monday, 4 July which has provisionally been set aside for Sports day. 


To confirm the remaining swimming dates will be:


Monday 6 June

Monday 13 June

Monday 20 June

Monday 27 June

Monday 11 July


If you have any queries please contact the school office.
