Friday Update – 23rd October 2020

23 October 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for all your support this half term. It has been challenging at times; your kindness and encouragement is much appreciated. The children have made an extremely positive return to school and I cannot thank the staff team enough for their hard work and dedication.

This week, the children have taken part in the Children’s Cancer Run for the North of England Children’s Cancer Research charity. As you know, it’s been a very difficult time for charities and your generosity is greatly appreciated. Next half term, our Kells Lane tradition of wearing pyjamas to school for Children in Need will go ahead as planned. The Kells Lane School Fundraising group are also appealing for your favourite recipes for their brand new cookbook that will be out in time for Christmas. See below to read the autumn newsletter.

I hope you have a lovely half term.

Mrs A Whistler

Headteacher
