Newsletter week beginning 02/02/15

Dear Parents/Carers,

After an eventful couple of days at the end of last week, I am hoping that this week’s weather is less disruptive! It was lovely to see all the children out enjoying the snow on Friday and we had a huge range of snowmen dotted across the field! Miss Roberts has taken some photographs and we will put them on the website as soon as possible.
Should there be further disruption we will put any information on the school website; however I am hoping that this will not be necessary.

Please note that staff work in the school office from 8:30am until 4pm (Monday-Thursday) or 3:30pm (Friday). The answer machine is on during the times that the office is unmanned as teachers are busy preparing in their classrooms before school, and marking work or in staff meetings after school. Please leave a message and we will get back to you.

Best wishes,
Miss Sheila Harrison
