Head of School update

It’s been a week of trips and visits…

This week the children have had their first trips of 2023 with Year 1 and 2 visiting Norwich Cathedral and a chance to see historic Elm Hill.  This was all part of their current topic work.  Year 3 and 4 experienced life as an Anglo Saxon at West Stow, they were all amazing and a credit to the school, please check out the class updates for more information.

PTFA News:  If you have not already booked your tickets, don’t forget the Friendship Disco – Tickets are now live on school money.  Closing date for ticket purchases is Monday 6 February.

School Money Arrears: we are sending out reminders of outstanding balances on a weekly basis, please note that we are able to take payments over the phone as well. Please help us by making sure your account is always up to date.  If you are experiencing any problems, please let us know quickly so that we can help.

Lunch bookings: Please review the letter being sent out this week in regard to booking lunches promptly. This ensures that the caterers on site can provide the service that we would want our children to receive.   If you have any questions please let the school office know. 

Next week our Year 4 trip to Hilltop takes place.  The children will have 3 days of activities to look forward to. This is an annual event and is always great to observe the children’s independence and ability to have fun no matter if the weather can be a little unpredictable!  If your child is attending please expect a big bag of dirty washing to return with your child along with a raft of great memories for them to share!  For those who are not attending we will be providing lots of fun activities to continue their learning at school.

Teacher strikes: the first of the proposed strike days is Wednesday 1st February. Please note that we will continue to communicate plans to you as soon as we are able. Please monitor your emails/texts to ensure you have the most up to date information.

Half term is also nearly upon us.  We break up on Friday 10 February and return to school on Monday 20 February.
