Climbing Success!

Billy and Sam both qualified for the UK Grand Final of the BMC Youth Climbing Series (4 regional qualifying competitions, top 3 go onto the final) Billy was second in his category (Dorset, Devon and Cornwall) and Sam was third. They both climbed superbly and were kind and considerate. The final was cancelled but they have given all the qualifiers a special sweatshirt instead.

PTA Updates

Bag 2 SchoolKeep hold of your good quality items for re-use: clothing, paired shoes, handbags, belts and accessories. Bags should be dropped off at 21 Wesley Close, Charmouth after school on Monday 28th or Tuesday 29th September. More information will be coming soon ready for drop off on Wednesday 30th September.

Our PTA AGM will be on Wednesday 30th September at 8:30pm. This will be done via zoom with the details for the meeting to be sent out via email. All are welcome – whether or not you have attended a PTA meeting before. We are all there to help get the best for the children at Charmouth Primary School.

Water Bottles

Please ensure that water bottles are in school every day. These should contain water only. If children would like a squash or juice for lunchtime, this should be a separate bottle kept in their lunchbox.

Lunch Time Eating

Bubbles 2 (Pathfinders and Adventurers) and 3 (Navigators) are now eating their packed lunches outside. This does make it harder for us to keep an eye on how much the children have eaten; if you have any concerns about how much your child is eating, please email the school office so we can keep a particular eye out.

Allergies – NO NUTS PLEASE!

We do have children in school with serious allergies. Please help us to keep those children with nut allergies safe by ensuring that no food on the school site contains nuts – please particularly check the contents of cereal bars and spreads such as Nutella.


As guidance is updated and clarified, we are updating our ‘Covid’ page, which can be accessed from the menu on the website or from here. The latest information from Public Health Dorset has been added to the page with clear information about what to do if your child is unwell.

End of Day Collection – Bubble 2

You may have noticed that we have put additional measures in place to help ensure safety around any vehicles. Please help to ensure this safety by moving away from the gate area on Hammonds Mead after dropping off or collecting.

Before School/Breakfast Club

Please look out for an email with a questionnaire about before school childcare. Our current low numbers are not sustainable. We need your feedback so we can plan next steps.


Week Beginning Monday 7th September
A message from Mrs Cornish

A big welcome back to everyone! It has been a real delight to have the heart of the school back – the children! I have been really impressed with how well everyone has adapted to being back at school and to the new routines. Their smiles and laughter have really brought life back into the building. 

We have made the decision to trial stopping the newsletter and instead updating the school website news feed, allowing us to add information throughout the week. We will send out a reminder on a Friday that the website has been updated so you don’t miss any key information.

Celebration Assembly (updated Friday afternoon)

In our celebration assembly, we particularly celebrated the following children:

Emily, Logan, Elin, Hendrix, Charlie R, Oliver N, Harry T, Maya, Hector, Jasmine I, Explorers Class, all staff.

Shoe Laces

If your child is wearing shoes with laces, please support them to be able to do them up independently as staff need to be maintaining a social distance as much as possible. This is a useful skill for all children to learn.

PE Kit

Children in years 1 to 6 will need their PE kit on Monday. They should wear black or navy sports shorts or tracksuit bottoms, a white t-shirt and their normal school jumper. The children will all be learning cricket skills this half term.


Safeguarding is always a high priority within the school. The safeguarding tab has information about the school contacts, our policies and some useful website links. If you have a concern, please contact Mrs Cornish or Mrs Dare.

Personal Belongings

A reminder that children do not need any personal belongings into school as everything they need is provided.

FREE visits to Magdalen Farm are available for families living in Dorset. Come for a day trip as a parent and then sleepover as a family. Thanks to the kind support of Dorset Skills and Learning BCP, we are pleased to offer a Healthy Minds at Magdalen Farm programme, providing a safe, supportive environment for you and your family. Please contact Rose at for more information or visit to book online.

Congratulations Miss Morrison!

Miss Morrison had a baby boy during the holidays – Noah, weighing a whopping 9lbs12! Mother and baby are doing well. 


EYFS Outdoor Area

Over the summer our EYFS area was extended and our Explorers are really enjoying the extra space!
