Dear Parents

Children have moved into their new Foundation Stage and are very excited and pleased with their new classrooms.  Thank you for you flexibility in where to drop off and collect children! After half term, Foundation Stage parents will drop off their children at the foundation stage gate and the rest of the school should be able to use the new pedestrian entrance next to the newly positioned cycle shelters.

Work has already begun on phase two, with scaffolding going up at the back of the school.  Y4 have now moved into Red room and Y2 are moving today back into their old room. Thank you to Scott Orchard, our Chair of Governors for providing some man power!

Menu Change: w/c 13/6/16: There will be a permanent menu change in Week 3. Monday will be fruit salad, waffle and chocolate sauce and Wednesday will be shortbread with orange,

KS1 film club – due to the 10 May club being cancelled, the last 2 sessions will be for 2 hours each (28/6 & 5/7, finishing at 5.15pm instead of 4.15pm).

Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers – please look in purses and handbags for any remaining vouchers and hand into the school office.

Year 3 Cake Sale: Thank you for your contributions and to the volunteers who manned the stall.

Thank you  to Nigel Matthews for donating a skip to get rid of our junk in the move around. It’s been good to declutter!

E-Safety Evening: Thank you to all parents, staff and governors who were able to attend; this was an extremely informative session with lots of ideas to keep children safe on the internet. Please see the school website for a link to the ‘Think you know’ website which has lots of information for parents and children and some excellent age appropriate cartoons.
