School Choir
I was incredibly proud of the choir who performed at Stockport Town Hall last Thursday night. It was lovely to see so many children representing our school. Thank you to Mrs Humphreys for all her hard work in preparing the choir for this event.

Junior Bake Off
The application process for Junior Bake Off is once again open. The closing date for applications is Sunday 1st May. Last year we had two children from school who entered. If you would like further information on how to apply please do not hesitate to contact me.

Just a reminder that if you have concerns about your child their class teacher is the first port of call. If you feel that the issue needs to be escalated, the phase leader should be contacted. For Years 3 and 4 this is Mr Kinnear, whilst in Years 5 and 6 it is Miss Wilson. If your concern is around the area of SEND then Mrs Lamont should be contacted and for any friendship/playground issues, Mr Black is a further point of contact. Only once these channels have been followed should myself or Mrs Challinor be contacted.

Attendance and office times
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.

Leave of Absence
Please remember that any requests for leave of absence should be made at least 2 weeks in advance of the start date. Leave of absence will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances.
