Letter from the Deputy Headteacher 25th January

Dear Parents/Guardians                                                                

THE BOOK PEOPLE BOOK FAIR held last Friday- : This was a huge success and the children really enjoyed choosing their books. We sold a total of £901 worth of books and the commission raised will be used to purchase further books for each class. Parents have been e-mailed a discount code to use if you want to order books/items direct from the Book People (discount of £5 for every £25 spent) – please ensure you use the link in the e-mail when ordering (to ensure school receives any commission). Thank you again for your support.

MUSIC LESSONS SPRING TERM 2019: Please note that Music Lesson charges for this term have now been added to Parent Pay accounts. Please can you arrange for payment as soon as possible. Thank you.

DINNER MONEY – PARENT PAY: If your child receives school dinners, please ensure that any dinner money owed is paid as soon as possible please. Ideally, meals should be paid for in advance.

BIKE SHED CLEAR OUT REMINDER (Luke & Oliver, Year 6 boys’ Project with Mr Jones)

We are clearing out the bike shed on Monday 28th January.
