Term dates for 2015-2016
Term dates for the next academic year have been sent out and are on the school website.
Please note that Easter falls within the Spring term – we are in for 4 days after Easter Monday before breaking up for the holidays, so please be careful if booking a holiday for that time.

Please remember that school starts at 8:50am with registers closing at 9am. Any child who arrives after 9am will have that session marked as an “unauthorised absence” and this WILL impact on their overall attendance figure for the term. The office staff work from 8:30am until 4pm (3:30pm on a Friday) and there is an answerphone at all other times so that you can leave a message regarding any absences.

Lost scooter
A girl’s pink micro-scooter has gone missing from the bike racks between the Infant and Junior schools.
If you find it please return to the Junior school office.

Year 6 SATs
Good luck to all of Year 6 who are sitting their end of Key Stage 2 Assessments this week.
We know that the children have all worked very hard and are sure that they will do their very best and show their abilities in the tests.
If there are any issues with sickness or getting to school on time please phone the office at the earliest opportunity.

A letter will be going out tonight asking parents to opt out of Parentmail if they do not wish to register.

Well done to the children in Years 4 & 5 who took part in the Bikeability Training. Certificates and badges will be given out this week.
