Dear parent / carer,


Please note the following:


  • Crossing patrol – unfortunately Jan is still off and Highways have not been able to cover the role.  As such, please take additional care when crossing North Road at the beginning and end of the school day. The lollipop man outside my wife’s school was not long ago run over by one of the parents (he retired yesterday as a result), so I don’t feel that it is appropriate that a school staff member undertake this role without the appropriate insurances etc. Do please take care of yourself and one another in and around the school.
  • Nursery applications for September 2017 start – closing date is 7th October 2016.
  • Parent consultations week beginning 17th October – appointment letters going out shortly.
  • Bunting – the bunting that we use for Year 6 leavers party etc. is starting to get a bit second hand, and Mrs Wakefield (happily retired!) has offered to renew our stock.  Any spare material that might be used to this end would be gratefully received.
