‘The best that I can be’

Amazing O2 !

The choir did a fantastic job singing along with 7000 other children in the ‘Young Voices’ concert on Monday. It really was a pleasure to be a member of the audience. It was a long day for the children and staff and they were all tired the next day, but it was worth it. Thank you so much to Mr. Matthews, Miss Smith and Mrs. Potts for making this experience possible for the children.

Dangerous Parking

Please can I ask again that you do not park on the bend before the school if you drop your children at the front. It is extremely dangerous to park there and also blocks our neighbour’s driveway. I was sad to hear that our neighbour has also suffered verbal abuse from a parent when he asked them not to park there. It is very important that we keep a good relationship with our neighbours for the sake of the whole community.

Get Well Soon !

I hope you will all join me in wishing Miss Luxford a speedy recovery from an operation she had this week. All being well, she should return to school on Friday 3rd February. In the meantime, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
