Travel Survey
As part of the expansion project we need to update our school Travel Plan. Surveys were sent out last week and we would be grateful if you return the completed form to the school office by Friday 14th March.

Consultation on Expansion
The architect and project manager for the proposed work to replace the mobiles and develop the car park will be in school between 3pm and 6pm on Tuesday 11th March. They will have a display about their proposals and will be available to answer any questions. If you are unable to make this date/time the display will remain in school until Friday 14th March.

Thank you to everyone who turned up to support the teams last Tuesday. Unfortunately Pownall Green forgot that the match had been arranged and didn’t turn up. Mr Lane has been able to rearrange the fixture for Tuesday 1st April.
The next football match is away at Moorfield on Thursday 13th March. All supporters are very welcome.

Car Parking
We continue to 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.
