Dear Parents

It is amazing how quickly time passes in school and how much has been going on just in the past 5 weeks.

Many of you will have noticed my ‘presence’ at the school gates at the end of the day. I have received a number of complaints from local residents about parents blocking driveways and children climbing onto private gardens. Please park with consideration for our neighbours and stop your children from going onto private property.

Thank you for the fantastic donations for Harvest Festival. We managed to pack up 39 hampers and raised £228 which we will send to ‘Harvest for Hope – Send a Cow’. This is a charity we used for our Harvest Assembly and they are working to end poverty by helping to make African families self – sufficient. The money we are sending will make a considerable difference.

Please look out for letters coming home at the beginning of next week about the ‘How to support your child’s learning’ evenings we are holding the following week. These are slightly different from the information evenings held in the past and are intended to explain what we are doing in school with your children and what you can do at home to support this. The three evenings – one for each Key Stage, will be held on three consecutive evenings and will last between an hour and an hour and a half. I look forward to seeing you there!

Another plea on behalf of all staff – please make sure all items of uniform are named, we have an increasing number of red jumpers in lost property!

Please remember that we are a ‘nut free’ school and no products containing nuts must be brought into school.

If you have any concerns or if there is anything you wish to discuss please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely

Mary Driver
