Letters for Translation

Welcome to our new Letters for Translation page, which will enable families with English as an Additional Language (EAL) access to School letters and Friends of Lyndhurst letters which are sent to parents and uploaded to the website in PDF format.


PDF letters do not automatically translate; we hope this new page will be of help to you. 


We will update it as and when we receive updates.

Summer Fair Countdown… 3 weeks to go!


We are looking for volunteers to help with all aspects of the fair – raffle prize gathering, craft stall prep, biscuit and cake baking BEFORE the fair; setting up from 10am on the day of the fair; running or doing a shift on a stall DURING the fair; and being part of our clean up squad AFTER the fair. If you can help in any way, please do let us know!


And here’s another reminder of the class tasks for the fair. If you can help with your class’ specific task please do get in touch with your class rep and let them know as they are now looking for volunteers to help in lots of different ways both before and on the day. Thank you!

Please see the attached document for details of the two spending proposals.  Do please send any comments or questions our way and if you are in agreement with the proposals - which will be discussed and voted on at Friday's meeting - please do let us know by return of email, whether or not you can attend Friday's meeting.  Thank you.


Additionally, should you have any items you would like added to the meeting agenda please let me know by Friday lunchtime.


We look forward to seeing many of you at the meeting on Friday.

Year 6 Journey

Rachel Worrell

Year 6 journey to Allnatt Centre, Swanage, Dorset, from 9th-13th July.

Outward bound, mini-beast safari, den-building, body boarding, etc,

The overall cost is £18,000 of which FoL are being asked to make a contribution of £2,000.


A request for funds (approx. £50 per pupil) to help reduce the overall cost for all parents to supplement grants and parent contributions. The Year 6 trip is an integral part of the Lyndhurst life that gives all Year 6 pupils an end of primary school experience away from home.


Year 6 pupils



The total of spending proposals put forward in this round is £2,814.


Friends of Lyndhurst can afford both proposals, leaving enough in our account to fund the fair and leave untouched our required £3,500 contingency.
