Friday Update – 28th May 2021

28 May 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for all your vital support during the last half term. Your co-operation at the start and end of the school day continues to be greatly appreciated. We will continue to do everything we can to keep everyone as safe as possible next half term. Please continue to socially distance and wear a face covering on school grounds. Please also remember that only one adult should drop off and pick up. Thank you.

We have had a great week with Chris Connaughton and a really fun ‘hero’ day today. It was wonderful to see the children giggling as they walked past a rather unusual Mrs Swinbank!

It looks like the sun may be making a long-awaited appearance this weekend – fingers crossed. I hope you all have a lovely half term break.

 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler

Headteacher
