Welcome back – I hope you all had an enjoyable half term. We have many exciting things planned this term, and as usual we will be rounding off the term with our Easter Week Celebrations. We have lots of Easter themed fun and Easter Egg hunts. Please can you send in two chocolate eggs. One small and one medium. You do not need to name the eggs unless your child has a specific dietary requirement, as they will be shared out throughout the school. Please remember that we are a nut free school.

We will be taking part in the National Shakespeare Festival Week, starting on Monday 16th March. The children will be taking part in a variety of drama and performance activities throughout the week.

The school office is open from 8.30am each morning. Please call if possible between 8.30am and 9am if your child is not coming into school, or you need to speak to a member of staff.

Red noses are now available from school for a minimum donation of £1.00. They are all in bags this year—a bit like a lucky dip. All money raised will be forwarded to Comic Relief. Comic relief day is 13th March—details of further fundraising activities to follow.

Short Breaks are organising some angling courses for children with special needs on the following dates—Easter Course- Lakeview Fishery 30th March, 31st March, 1st April, 2nd April, Mill Farm Fishery 7th April, 8th April, 9th April, 10th April. If you would like an application form please ask in the school office.

  • WEDNESDAY 4 MARCH ‘15 (10am-2pm) CRAWLEY LIBRARY Longley Room, Southgate Avenue, Crawley, West Sussex RH10 6HG
