Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 6th December 2019

6 December 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,


Our school is looking very festive now in preparation for Christmas. It’s our Christmas Fair next Friday afternoon so please do come along if you are able to.

We have had lots of visitors in school this week. This morning we welcomed a large group of headteachers from China who were interested in finding out how we do things at Kells Lane.

This afternoon we welcomed lots of prospective parents for next September to our open afternoon. I must just say that, as ever, the children’s behaviour was exemplary and I was extremely proud of them all.

We made an important appointment in school this week.  I am pleased to inform you that Mrs Gray will be joining our senior leadership team in January as our Early Years Leader.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
