Spelling Shed Competition

posted Jan 23, 2020, 1:50 AM by Amanda Gurney

In order to encourage children to play games that improve their spelling, we are running a competition over the next 2 weeks where the class who spends the most time playing games on Spelling Shed will all be awarded with a prize. Spelling Shed is a website that we subscribe to and all children in years 2-6 have been given a logon for this so that they can access the games for free. Please encourage your children to play this as much as possible. Class teachers and Mrs Wells can see how regularly individual children are logging on to play the games at home.

Parking at School

Dear Parents

Over the last couple of weeks we have had a growing number of complaints about parents/relatives parking on the zig zag lines on Abbey Street.  Only this morning someone has emailed to say that:

“Today dropping my daughter off at school I witnessed at least 4 cars park on the lines within 5 minutes”.

Under no circumstances is anyone allowed to stop/park on the zig zag lines, this includes blue badge holders.  The zig zag lines are there for a reason and the main reason being to protect your children.

We understand the entrance on Abbey Street is small for the amount of children and adults that use it, which is why we opened Hunter Street for pedestrians to try and relieve the amount of people using it.  Understandable this often creates a bottleneck of people which spills out onto the pavement which inevitably sometimes means that a child or adult may need to step into the road. 

We have sent out texts and tweets asking parents not to park on the zig zags, but this does not seem to work, therefore we are asking for parents to contact 0333 999 3332 to report anyone parking on the zig zags.  We will also be asking for the CEO to have a visual presence and to issue penaltys as necessary.

We thank all those parents that do follow the regulations, and we that all parents receiving this letter ensure that anyone that brings their child to school has also read it.

If you have any queries, please contact the school office.

Thank you for your cooperation with this important safety matter.

Yours sincerely



Miss A Huggins

Ashlawn Uniform

Ashlawn School Uniform Consultation


Following requests from parents and students, we would like to consult on the addition of shorts to the Ashlawn School uniform.  We are currently consulting parents and students at Ashlawn, but are aware that many students in our local feeder primary schools would like to have their views heard and would like to invite comment from them and their parents too.


The shorts would be black uniform shorts with a logo, as for all other items of Ashlawn uniform.  They will be available from our current uniform suppliers – William Webb Ellis and Scallywagz.  There will be two styles available; smart ‘city’ shorts, typically worn by girls and standard Bermuda tailored shorts, typically worn by boys – although we do not specify which style any gender may choose to wear.  Students would be allowed to wear them for the first half of the autumn term and for the duration of the summer term. 


Please send comments regarding the introduction of shorts to our uniform directly to by Monday 29 April 2019.

Coventry Blaze Ice Hockey Offer

posted Feb 6, 2019, 5:44 AM by Amanda Gurney

Hi from Coventry Blaze ice hockey !

Our incredible Hatrick triple offer just for you

Here at Coventry Blaze ice hockey HQ we are very proud of our Sport in the Community programme that enables us to offer reduced price tickets to selected businesses to watch the fastest and most exciting sport in the world for some of our home games.

And now, to celebrate Coventry becoming the 2019 European City of Sport in just a few weeks’ time, we are thrilled to have been able to put together a brand new Sport in the Community package for businesses that has not one, not two but THREE fantastic elements to make the most incredible value package we’ve ever been able to offer.

This offer is available for a very limited time only and we want YOU to be one the first to have the opportunity to experience it.

The package includes

·         Your ticket for a forthcoming Blaze game (usually £18 per adult)

·         An ice skating session immediately after the game with skate hire included

·         Free parking for your visit (one voucher per booking)

If you wanted to have a go at ice skating at any other time it would be £13 per person including skate hire and with parking normally £4 for your visit, this really does represent a fantastic opportunity to have a great night out at an incredible price.

You can take advantage of our business Hatrick package for just £8 per person (still fantastic value even if you don’t fancy the skate) – and you can book up to 2 adults and 3 children for one or both of the following games at the Skydome Arena.

Sunday 17th February vs Sheffield Steelers - 5.15pm  

Sunday 24th February vs Fife Flyers  - 5.15pm  

This offer has a very limited circulation and is not transferrable

To book this package simply email, quote HATRICK OFFER and let us know the business you are from and how many adult and child tickets you would like to book.

We will then send you a confirmation email with full details for the game including instructions for your free parking and free skating session and skate hire.

Bookings must be received by 2pm on the day of the game and can’t be combined with any other offer.

There is nothing to pay now – you pay for your tickets on the night when you come to the game – but all we ask is that if you reserve tickets, you do come along or you will be depriving someone else of the opportunity.

Once we receive your email, we will send you a confirmation to let you know that you have been successful and with everything you need to know about the game.

Blaze Hockey – we’ll sell you the whole seat but you’ll only use the edge!
