Dear Parents

Please be aware that the next few weeks are our assessment weeks across the school when children will be taking various tests. The most important of these are the Year 6 Sats which are the statutory tests that all children across the country will be taking next week, so please ensure that children are prompt for school and have a good breakfast!

Sainsburys Active Kids vouchers – The scheme has now finished so please dig out vouchers from purses & bags so they can be counted.

FOHNS Bike & Bake : we look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday, 2-4pm – cakes and second-hand bikes to sell (labelled with name, telephone & price) can be brought from 12noon. Luke Allington from Broadribb Cycles is coming along with a few new show bikes, see, Brownies will be running at Table Top Sale, and FOHNS will be selling second-hand uniform – something for everyone! (Please contact if you have a clothes rail we could borrow for the day)
