Dear Parent/Guardian                                                                                                      


Ventrus Athletics Event –Monday, 25th June 2018


For the first year the Ventrus Trust schools will be taking part in a Athletics event being held at the Exeter Arena on Monday, 25th June.  Your child’s class teacher and Mr Ovey, our Sports TA, have selected children who have shown an aptitude in the various athletic disciplines and we would like your child to join the Orchard Vale Team.


We will be travelling by coach which will leave Orchard Vale at 8am prompt so the children will need to be in school at 7.45am.  The event should finish at between 1pm and 2pm and we should arrive back at school by the end of the school day.  However, as this is the first year this event has taken place please bear with us if we are slightly delayed.


The children will need to wear their PE kit and trainers and bring with them:


Jogging bottoms or track suit, to keep them warm.          Spare Socks    

Trainers                                                                            Waterproof coat                     


The children will need to bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink in a plastic, labelled container.  If your child is entitled to Free School Meals and you would like the kitchen to provide a packed lunch for them please indicate this on the tear off slip.


Please could we ask you to complete and return the slip below to your class teacher by Thursday, 21st June.

If your child suffers from asthma could we ask that you ensure any medication is in school and up to date the day before this activity so that staff members can take it to the event.


Yours faithfully


Fiona Pearce, Head Teacher
