Newsletter 27: 27th April 2018

Grand Opening of Classrooms and Foyer

This afternoon, we had special visitors to come and celebrate the official opening of our foyer and new classrooms. The children sang beautifully and the visitors were very impressed with the new buildings. It has been a long time coming, but well worth the wait. Thank you for your patience. Photos to follow.

Sun Hats

Please could you provide your child with a school baseball cap to wear when it is sunny. Those children who do not have a school baseball cap will need to wear a school hat (which is for their sole use). Please do not send your child in with any other sun hats/baseball caps as they will not be allowed to wear them. If you have ordered a cap and it has not arrived yet, your child will be provided with a hat in the interim. Thank you for your co operation.

Parent and Pupil Questionnaires

Thank you to all of you who sent in their completed questionnaires. We will read them carefully and publish the results over the next couple of weeks. We will also, of course, take into account your comments and those of the children and respond in due course.

Kingswood Meeting

Parents of all children who are going to Kingswood are invited to a meeting on 21st May straight after school, where we will give you more details about the visit and you will have an opportunity to ask questions. Please attend if at all possible, as the date of the visit is now only a few weeks away.
