Dear Parents

The children have all settled into their new classes very well and taken the move around in their stride! Please come to the meeting next week where I will give you the latest information on the school expansion. As you will no doubt be aware, school budgets have been squeezed year on year.  This year is no exception, as we are being required to pay for more and more services that were ‘free’ in the past.  The Friends of the school do an amazing job to provide your children with additional facilities and resources.  In these difficult economic times their work is even more valued.  We will need to equip the new classrooms and the Early Years outdoor area and we will need your help to do so! Please come along and lend your support, especially parents with younger children are most welcome.
