Week Beginning 24th February 2020

Information and Events

I hope you have all had a great half term and we look forward to welcoming the children back tomorrow. 

We raised £195 for the NSPCC following our MUFTI day, so thank you to everyone who sent in a donation. 

We are holding parents’ evening this week for parents of children in year 1 and 2.  If you have not yet signed up for an appointment, please see the class teacher tomorrow. 

After School Care

Replies to the letter that went out on the last day of the half term need to be received by 12 pm Wednesday the 26th. Parents will then be informed on Thursday the 27th if they have the places they want as this will be dependent upon availability.  We are currently only taking details related to long term bookings. A decision will be made by March 3rd re our capacity to also accept adhoc bookings. If anyone needs another letter, please contact the school office on Monday.

PE kits

As we begin a new half term, could you please ensure your child had a PE kit in school.  We will be sending text reminders to parents if children do not have what they need for PE.  

  • Blue or black shorts
  • White T shirt (either with school logo or just plain)
  • Black plimsoles (please check on the fit regularly)
