Head of School update

This week at school….

It has been lovely to be able to share this week the progress of all your children at our various parents evening feedback opportunities.  For those of you that navigated the various waiting areas on Zoom calls, and those that were able to attend in person – thank you!  If you were able to come in and have a look at your child’s books you will see how much they have learnt already!  We are incredibly proud of them.  Check out this week’s class updates for more information on what they have been up to.

We are also now slowly getting just a little Christmassy – in the infant school scripts have been sent out for children to learn in readiness for their performances on 18/19 December.  Don’t forget to book early!  Scarily it’s only 3 and half weeks until the end of term. We have a number of parent events in December so keep checking the website and make sure you have saved the date for the recent Dates for the diary letter.

Children in Need 17th November 2023 – We are currently finalising the donations and counting out how much we raised and will let you know shortly.  Thank you to everyone who made an effort and a huge thank you to all the bakers in our school community that brought in enough cakes for us to have 2 bake sales and not just 1!  We cannot wait for next year!
