Dear Parents / Carers.


I hope you are all well.  I know fundraising for Friends of Isham School (FOIS) has been pretty quiet recently but we are very excited to be back and safely raising funds for the children again !


We wanted to start back with something fun for the kids as we appreciate things have been a bit tough recently. So Kirstin and Alex have very kindly allowed us to let the children break a few rules, embrace individuality and uniqueness and have a huge bit of fun!  On the last day of term, next FRIDAY 28th MAY. We will be holding a “DARE TO BE DIFFERENT DAY”.  See the poster above for the ‘dares’, there are 8 of them that the children can take part in.  Each ‘dare’ will cost you 50p, or break all of them for £3!



CASH – ON THE DAY PLEASE (we go straight into half term after so can’t take late cash payments)

BACS – Friends of Isham School, Acc. 21854077, Sort 09-01-29, Ref. Your Childs Name

Our funds have really depleted this year with the lack of events, but the need is still there, we really appreciate your support.  FOIS supports all aspects of the school to help enrich the daily lives of the pupils of Isham primary.  Lets have some fun together and get back to raising some much needed funds.



Thank you

Sarah, Nina and Emma

Blue Peter - Friday 13th Nov at 5:30pm

We thought you’d like to know that one of our pupils, Imogen, in Y6 will be starring on Blue Peter this week.

Imogen is a long-term user of the charity Living Paintings – a charity which helps blind and partially sighted children explore, learn and read. This charity is also supported by Children in Need.

The BBC film crew and the presenter, Richie, went to Living Paintings where they made a tactile and audio book for Imogen, subsequently visiting her at home during half term to present the book to her.
As part of the show they did a section on Imogen’s likes…her sister, Jasmin, in Y3 also features on the show.
I hear the girls loved their day – and we’re all very excited to see them on the TV.

Hope you all manage to see them: Friday 13th November 5:30pm.


Please see the photos below.


Friday 13th is also our Children in Need Mufti day in school. Please consider sending in a donation of £1 or £2 so that they can continue to support charities such as Living Pictures.





Message from Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service for Bonfire Night - Nov 2020

Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service would like to remind families that we are actively discouraging people from having bonfires and fireworks at home.  Firefighters do often get called out to bonfires out of control, and we know that fireworks also need to be used with great care.

However, we want families to have as safe a Bonfire Night as possible, so we are also sharing safety tips for those who choose to celebrate in this way at home.  This is to help avoid some of the hazards people can experience when using fireworks or having bonfires.  (Please see Bonfire night file attached below).

We hope everyone enjoys their Bonfire Night and shares our safety messages as widely as possible.

Thanks for your support,

Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service
