Remembrance Day was respectfully observed at USH on Tuesday 11th November at 11am. The front lawn was awash with red poppies created by students. For the first time at USH grandparents attended the event, followed by their grandchild showing them around the school and joining them for refreshments in the pavilions. I would like to thank the numerous grandparents for taking the time to write in expressing their thanks and enjoyment of the morning. I would also like to thank Jo Laybourne for organising the event, Joshua King for his excellent rendition of ‘The Last Post’ and Lizzie Laybourne for her reading.

You may have heard about the gas explosion in Shirley on local and national news, which sadly destroyed a house as a father and daughter slept. Miraculously no-one was seriously hurt in the accident. The young girl involved, Bella Sabanal, is a student at Wordsworth Primary School which is part of our Multi-Academy Trust. As a result of this we are opening a collection at USH; if you would like contribute towards supporting the family, donations can be left at reception. Thank you.
There is also a collection in the community: donations can be sent to https://www.justgiving.com/yimby/sabanalfamily#/.
