Jubilee Picnic - 26th May 2022

On Thursday 26th May we celebrated the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. We dressed in red, white and blue and had a special picnic lunch. We had planned to have our picnic on the field but it rained so we stayed in the school hall instead.

Community Champions - April 2022

More and more people in our community are struggling with meeting the increased financial demands they face each and every day. It is therefore more important than ever to celebrate the work of our Community Champions who do wonderful things for others. One of the local charities supported by school is Wyke Food Bank. Our Harvest Collection was donated to them in October and in December, CHIC club organised for Christmas presents to be donated to them. One of our parents (David Dickinson) and his two children (Emmie & Gabriel - both pupils here at Bailiffe) have been very busy supporting the Wyke Food Bank once again. As a local businessman, David asked a number of his contacts in the area to donate money to support the food bank. Ably assisted by his two children, he went shopping with an amazing £2,100 collection, filling vans full of food, to be transported to the Wyke Food Bank. We're so proud of Emmie & Gabriel (& of course, their Dad) for thinking of others.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who made this donation possible. All contributors are detailed on this link.

Comic Relief - 18th March 2022

For Comic Relief we all dressed in red and wore our red noses. In the afternoon, we all decorated biscuits with cherries for their red noses.

Be Bright, Be Happy Day - 11th February 2022

Children's mental health week ran from 7th -11th February this year and the theme was 'Growing Together'. On Friday 11th February we had our 'Be Bright, Be Happy' day where we all wore our brightest clothes in celebration of our wellbeing.

Sports Day - June 2021

Sports day in our bubbles was a great success and it was fantastic to see a wide range of skills on show from our children. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it was a pleasure to hear so many shouts of support for classmates, whether they won a race or not.

Well done to those children who were placed in an event achieving points for their house team. We are happy to announce that BRANXHOLME (green) was the winning team this year. Enjoy the photographs below! Here's hoping that Sports Day 2022 will be celebrated with our whole school community once again.

Mrs Gatehouse - A Volunteer for 20 years!

Mrs Gatehouse has been a great volunteer and loyal friend of Bailiffe Bridge School for 20 years now. She started reading with Classes 5 and 6 in 1999 and still reads with them  on Monday and Tuesday afternoons each week. On 9th July, we had a special assembly to celebrate 20 fantastic years with Mrs Gatehouse.

Every school should have a Mrs Gatehouse. Here's to the next 20 years!

Arts Week

During the last two weeks in May, we held our annual Arts Week event. The theme this year was 'Cultural Diversity' and children from Reception to Year 5 completed work from a range of different cultures.
