WORLD BOOK DAY – March 1st


It’s  📚WORLD BOOK DAY 📚  next THURSDAY 1st MARCH and there are all sorts of great things going on at Tufnell Park School! 🎉

  • Look out for tokens for a FREE World Book Day book in school bags, these should be coming home this week.
  • On Thursday 1st your child can dress up as their favourite fictional character/character from a book. Don’t worry – we have some ideas for easy costumes below!
  • We’ll be holding a Book Swap straight after school on Thurs 1st. Over the next few days please bring in a book (or a few!) you are done with, suitable for readers aged from nursery-year 6 and leave them in the boxes in the reception area. Then, after school, children can come along and choose a FREE book!
  • There’ll also be a school uniform sale at the same time, so a great opportunity to pick up bargain TPS uniform pieces ahead of spring/summer.

World book DayBook drop boxes – please leave your donated books sorted (roughly) by age group.

New Touchscreens for Every Class

The PTA have agreed to fund new touchscreens for every classroom. These new screens are packed with interactive features to allow us to present, share and learn better than ever before. The school believes they will have a significant and lasting impact on the learning experience in Tufnell Park School.

This has been made possible by YOUR generosity, supporting PTA fundraising events over the last few years. As the school grows, more screens will be needed and so fundraising will continue. But for now we are looking forward to installing these new screens soon.

We currently have two touchscreens installed inside Ursa and Andromeda classrooms (NOT the portable screen outside). There will be a demonstration session after half term so you can find out more about how these screens will support your child’s learning. Or visit the product site to explore their features now.


Come and visit the PTA noticeboard in the lobby to see what people in the school are offering/in need of, and see if someone else can re-use something you’ve finished with.

All items offered are to be FREE, no cash should change hands. Please remove card from board once item has been picked up. No items to be stored on school premises. All exchanges are at your own risk. Happy swapping!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, from your PTA!

Two announcements: Look out for the Fundraising Friday this coming Friday (19th) – raising money for new playground equipment.

Rocket Fund deadline approaching

Thanks to everyone who has already pledged their support  to our ‘Tech for a Changing School‘ project.  We are trying to purchase equipment, so pupils can record in different ways the changes to the building and school grounds as they take place.  The resources will benefit all children in the school and hopefully the digital content they create will be of value to future pupils  too.  We have so far raised 30% of the total.  We need to raise another £1000 by 28th December to make this exciting project a reality.  Please contribute, whatever you can, and share the project among friends and family.  Together we can do it! Come on Tufnell Park!
