All the parents, staff and pupils would like to thank Willmott’s and Sansome & George for their continued sponsorship of our School Crossing Patrol at Long Lane Primary School.
Both companies have sponsored our School Crossing Patrol since 2019.
The school crossing patrol funding was cut in 2018 as part of West Berkshire’s decision to cease its funding for six patrollers in the district.
Scott Willmott said:
"I am a parent with a child at the school, my family cross the busy road every day and I can't imagine what it would be like without Mr Darling helping them. As a family business, we are proud to be sponsoring Long Lane's lollipop man."
Paul Bampton, Managing director of Sansome and George, was keen to support the school as well.
“At Sansome & George we take immense pride in supporting the local community especially Long Lane School. We are pleased to have helped maintain the safety for the children and their parents travelling to and from the school.”
A team of Year 5 and 6 boys played Hermitage in the first round of the Bill Mc Cup. A great team performance saw them win 4-0 with two goals each from Henry and Luke.
Italian Lessons start at Long Lane
We are all really excited to begin our Italian lessons at Long Lane. The children have thoroughly enjoyed their first lesson of Italian and have been really enthusiastic to learn about the Italian flag and follow some instructional language.
We are very fortunate to be able to offer two Italian clubs;
Thanks for all your support over the past year, it’s been busy and we love that the community has rallied round to raise an incredible amount of money for our children’s education. We would love to kick off next year in style – we have set a date for our AGM already, which we will again combine with an epic quiz night with fish & chips served from a local chip shop.
Please put the date in your diaries now – FRIDAY 29th September 7.30pm at school.
Happy summer everyone
