Friday 21st April 2017


Welcome back to the summer term. We hope you all had a good break over the Easter period.

Developments over the holiday
Mr Jackson has been working hard over the holiday as usual. There are new lights in Years 5 and 6; these lights emit 50% extra light but cost 40% less than the older lights. A new soakaway drain has been dug which means there should be less chance of flooding, particularly outside the school hall. The PE store at the end of school hall has been converted into a room, as part of our Music Room development.

An architect has drawn up plans for the revised Music Room development and planning permission is now being sought.

Thank you to all parents who get your child to school regularly and punctually; this is important for your own child not to miss learning on school days. It also helps when a class is not disturbed by late-comers. You may be aware that the Supreme Court recently judged against a parent who took his child out of school. I have been asked to remind you all that absence from school can only be authorised in advance and only for exceptional circumstances. Thank you for your support.

You may wish to display the dates below in a prominent place at home to remind you of what is happening in school.
