A big thank you to everyone that supported the school Christmas Fair last Saturday – we raised over £2,700!!

Tickets for the Winter Shows are now available. We try to accommodate everyone, but we have limited space and an increasing number of students. Please return the slip ASAP indicating how many ticket you would like (max of 2 per family) If you would like more tickets we will add you to the list and see how many spare tickets we have available. This is a very busy and exciting time in school with lots going on. The children are all busy in their classes preparing for the winter shows and making props. Next week we will send home information about events in the last week of term.

Everyone should by now have received their child’s school photo. If you would like to place an order please return your order with payment, sealed in the envelope provided on Monday morning. We need them back promptly to ensure delivery before Christmas. If you miss the date you can order directly online—instructions are included in the pack.

The school governors and the senior leadership team have been investigating the advantages and disadvantages of becoming an academy. After meeting with academy groups and other professional bodies the decision has been taken not to pursue becoming an academy in the foreseeable future.

School Car Park/Pick up and Drop off – Please can we remind you to drive slowly and carefully on the school premises and to park with consideration to others. We will never have enough parking but if we are considerate to one another most of the difficulties can be overcome.

There will be a “Behaviour Workshop” for parents and carers at school on 9th December, 9.30am – 11.00am. If you would like to come along, or you would like more information please speak to Jan in Beech Class or Amanda in Juniper Class.
