Dear Parents

Key Stage 1 Dress Rehearsal and Tea Party for senior members of the community will take place on Monday 8 December, 1.30pm in the Study Centre – please spread the word amongst neighbours/grandparents who are very welcome to join us. It would be good to know if you have an older relative or friend who is coming so we can cater more accurately.

Anti-Bullying Weekthis week has been anti-bullying week and the children will have brought home two leaflets – one for parents and one for children explaining how we define bullying and what do to if a child is being bullied. We have discussed the different forms of bullying and I was very reassured by how knowledgeable the children are and what to do if bullying occurs, particularly with cyber-bullying.

PE kits: Please can all children make sure they have a full PE kit in school at all times which includes track suit bottoms and jumpers for outdoor PE.
