After School Club

We began our 3.00 – 4.00pm After School Club last week. This runs every day school is open until Easter as a trial period. Spaces remain available and can be booked at a cost of £2 per day through the school office.

Packed Lunches

It has been brought to my attention that a significant amount of packed lunches are being thrown in the bin without being eaten. Having discussed this with the PTA and gauged their opinions we are going to trail a period, until Easter, where pupils bring home all remaining uneaten items. I will write to parents to ascertain your views on this towards the end of the trial period. Thank you in anticipation of your support in this matter.

PTA Quiz Sheets

Our PTA Quiz sheets were circulated last week. The closing date for the return of these sheets to the school office is Tuesday 12 March 2019. All monies raised is being used to develop our Outdoor Learning area for Y1 and Y2. Your support in this matter is appreciated
