Please remember that there will be no school-run after-school clubs during the week 21st to 25th October due to Parents’ Evenings. Other externally-run clubs (Mad Science, French and Coding Club) will continue as normal unless you are otherwise informed by the relevant teacher.
Please enter the school via the Burnham Avenue entrance only.
During Wednesday’s Parents’ Evening our Home Link Officer, Mrs Louise Barlow, will be available to parents. If anybody would like to discuss concerns regarding their child’s wellbeing, Mrs Barlow will be located in the Pili Pala room which is situated adjacent to the ramp in the main entrance.
RECEPTION OPEN AFTERNOONS
Parents of pupils in Reception Classes will be invited into school for an Open Afternoon after half term. This will allow the teachers time to fully settle the children into their daily routines. As we currently have spaces in our Reception classes, both existing parents and prospective future parents will be invited to attend.
The date for this event will be determined nearer the time.
Mrs Romans would like to thank everyone for their kind donations. She walked the course for Ben McDonald who tragically died after crossing the finish line last year, and raised £161.24 for ‘Welsh Hearts’, who are organising free heart screening in his memory.
