Staffing changes
Mrs Keeling has joined us today on a permanent contract working as a Teaching Assistant across school.
Miss Nicholson and Mrs Lamb have also started with us today and will be here until the end of the summer term, working in Year 4.
As Mr Cardwell’s Jury Service has been extended again, Mrs Petzoldt will be teaching his class for the next 2 weeks.

Morning Registration – Late Arrivals
Please be aware that school opens at 8.50 am and registration closes at 9 am. Any child who arrives after
9 am will be marked in as Unauthorised. Late arrival at school disrupts the class and may adversely affect a child’s educational achievements. If a child is 5 minutes late for school every day they would have missed
19 days of Primary education. Educational Penalty Notices may be issued to parents of children who are persistently late, arriving after the close of registration.

The next football match is at home on Tuesday 4th March against Pownall Green. All supporters are very welcome.

Car Parking
We remind people to please park sensibly and safely around school to ensure we avoid accidents.

There are a number of parents who are continuing to park unsafely and without thought to residents. The safety of all children needs to be paramount and to ensure that this happens, we have asked for help from the police and traffic wardens.

There is a meeting on Tuesday 4th March at 9am in the Infant School hall to discuss the current issues around parking and safety, especially on North Park Road. If you are unable to attend but have concerns that you would like to share then please email them to me on

World Book Day
We will be holding our celebration of World Book day on Friday 7th March. Mr Kinnear has already sent out details about the range of activities to be undertaken on that day and we look forward to seeing people dressed up as various book characters.

Thought of the Week
I can always try to produce work of the highest standard.

Best wishes,

Miss Sheila Harrison
