Everyone at Sully Primary School hopes you have a lovely Easter break, and we look forward to seeing you in the summer term!
The school photographer will be taking class photos and also individual photos of the Y6 leavers on Tuesday 30th April. Please ensure that your child is wearing school uniform on that day, including a jumper or cardigan. Nursery children are not required to wear uniform.
May we remind you that your child should not return to school until 48 hours have passed since the last bout of sickness or diarrhoea, in order to prevent the spread of infection.
Please note that guitar lessons during the first week back will be on Tuesday 30th April as Mr Hayes is unavailable on Friday that week. If your child is taking a guitar exam soon and you would like to increase the length of their lesson, please refer to https://ccvgmusicservice.org for pricing and contact details.
