Information from Mrs Driver

I am delighted to tell you that when Mrs Wheat goes on maternity leave in January her class will be taught by Mrs Lara Mitchell, who is currently our support teacher. Mrs Mitchell joined our team in September and has been a great addition to the teaching staff and is an experienced Year 6 teacher.

Mrs Mackilligan returns from maternity leave in January and she will be taking over the group work started by Mrs Mitchell this term. Many of you know Mrs Mackilligan and we are very pleased to have another experienced teacher taking on the support teacher work.

Therefore Mrs Thomas will be staying with class 3/4 on a Thursday and Friday.

I am sure you will all be pleased that we have managed to maintain the stability across the school by working with teachers who are known to us all.


We have our second major fund-raising event of the year on Saturday 22nd November – our Winter Wonderland. This is a wonderful day for the whole family. We have the Secret Present Room for the children to buy those special Christmas presents, a few craft stall for parents to do their shopping, a raffle with a range of different hampers and of course Storytime with Santa. But all these events can only work if we have lots of help from as many people as possible. You will have received a letter from the SPA about their new online rota PTA Social. This can be accessed through the school website and is where they have put the rota for people to sign up to help. If you could spare an hour on the day between 10.00 and 2.00 or alternatively come along before it starts or at the end to help with the setting and clearing up, sign up or talk to one of the SPA members.

Remember all the money raised is for the benefit of your children.


Once again I have to mention the number of children who are late for school. We all understand the odd days when traffic is a nightmare, but it is often the same children every day. Please ensure your child is in school BEFORE 8.45am. Thank you


Should you wish to discuss any matters relating to school please feel free to make an appointment to see me with the school office.

Yours sincerely
Mary Driver
