General Information


It is now time for the second installment of payment for Caythorpe. We would appreciate a payment of £60 by 10th February. This can be made via your Parentpay account. If there are any problems with payment please contact your child's class teacher or the school office. The final installment of another £60 is due in April.

Just a few helpful points that have been raised following discussions with the children:

  • Tents sleep a maximum of 5. We ask the children to choose 2 names of friends they would like to share tents with. We then allocate tent groups very carefully based on this information and our knowledge of the children;
  • Relevant forms, packing lists and timetables will be sent out closer to the trip.

In the meantime, if you or the children have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We want you and the children to look forward to our trip as much as we are. 



As part of the Year 6 curriculum, we complete a Drugs Education programme called D.E.A.V. (Drugs Education at Arno Vale). This is a series of lessons that are designed to help raise children’s awareness and develop the skills they need to make positive, informed choices for a safe and healthy life. 


Throughout the first few weeks of the Spring term we will be teaching these lessons and using a range of resources to help the children make informed decisions and develop safe and healthy lifestyles. Individual activities, teamwork, role play and discussions are used to cover topics including:

  • Self-esteem and positive attitudes
  • Responsibilities
  • Bullying
  • Alcohol
  • Tobacco
  • Cannabis
  • Volatile substances
  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Peer pressure
  • Esafety
  • Healthy eating
  • Exercise


The children will complete some written work during lessons; however a lot of learning takes place through discussion and role play. At the end of the programme we will be holding a D.E.A.V. exhibition to celebrate the learning that has taken place. Parents are invited to join us for this on Friday 20th January at 2pm. 

Sealife Centre Trip

We were hoping to go on a trip to the Sealife Centre in January to support our new theme of Oceans in the Spring term. Unfortunately, we will no longer be able to go as the centre only accepts school group sizes of 50. There are no other aquariums close enough for us to visit within the school day. We are really disappointed about this as it has been a fantastic trip in the past.
