Welcome back and Happy New Year!

2020 looks to be a very busy year for us in school. There are lots of exciting trips and visits being planned as well as some different events in school.  On the reverse of this newsletter is a list of known dates so far for this term. Please keep it handy. We endeavour not to change dates once they have been set, but there are times when this is unavoidable, however we will try to give as much notice as possible.

I hope you are aware that the May Day at the start of May has been moved to Friday 8th May 2020. I have also reminded you of the first two terms’ dates for the next school year – 2020 – 2021 to assist you in planning holidays. Please remember we are asked to discourage all absences.

Hopefully the weather will be kind to us this term but in the event of severe weather we will use Twitter and the school website to post the news of a school closure. Please keep an eye on these.

If you have studied your date list you will be aware that we have moved Open Morning to the start of this term on Wednesday 22nd January 2020. This is your opportunity to come and see the school in action and to integrate with your child’s learning. The school will be open from 9.00am until 11.45 and you are invited to visit all classes. We will send more details out nearer the time.

Please remember if your child has been away from school with sickness or diarrhoea, they should stay away for at least 48 hours. This helps to protect us all!

Please remember if you have any concerns about your child at school, do not hesitate to come in to see me.

I look forward to seeing you in school in the very near future.
