Your feedback is really important to us and we are constantly thinking about how we can improve further. Many of you asked us to consider reinstating the annual paper planner for parents. We have decided to create an electronic calendar to give you the most up-to-date information. This will be available early next year. In the meantime, please do check the school website and Facebook page for information.

School finishes on Thursday next week. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support this term and to wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year.

 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler

Headteacher
