Letter from Headteacher 10th January

Dear Parents/Guardians

We hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous 2020. Welcome back!

DINNER MONEY ARREARS: Please can all parents ensure that any dinner money arrears on Parent Pay are paid in full urgently. Many thanks to parents who pay their dinner money on time. For information we are currently reviewing all outstanding dinner money debt and will be telephoning parents with outstanding balances (of over £10 per family) next week to discuss. Many thanks for your co-operation.

NEXT PTA MEETING: This will be held on Monday 20th January at 3.30pm in the Staff Room. All welcome to discuss new ideas etc.

NATIONAL TESTS YEARS 2- 6: Arrangements for the Statutory Tests for Years 2 – 6 are slightly different in that the number and numeracy tests will be done on-line and the reasoning test along will be paper based. The window for the reasoning test is between 28th April and 5th May 2020 so please avoid taking holidays during this period. The on-line tests (number and numeracy) do not need to be administered during this period, they will be done at some point before the summer holidays. If your child happens to be absent on one of the days, they can sit the on-line test on their return.
