In October we received information about a poetry competition. The winning poems would be published in a poetry book so we decided to enter poems into the competition. The classes involved were Year2/3, Year3 and Year 4. We have recently found out that 61 poems have been selected to be published. Along with this information are letters for parents inviting you to order copies of the books- at a cost of £18. We now know that that it can only loosely be described as a poetry competition as it is clearly a publishing company wanting to take advantage of as many parents as possible for their own financial gain. Please do not feel obliged in any way to purchase a copy of the book. There will be no financial benefit to school.
We always follow Sheffield LEA guidance on child protection issues and because of this we did not send surnames of the children so only Christian names will appear in the book. Letters for the children involved will be handed out in the first week back at school.
