World Book Day – There will be NO dressing up.

This year we would like the children to bring into school a favourite story or a book they have enjoyed reading to share with their peers. Your child will receive a £1 World Book Day token that they can spend on the World Book Day website or certain high street book stores.

Group and Team Photos
The return date on your photos is 28th February this is the actual day that they will collect proofs, so your orders need to be returned before that date.

Sickness and Diarrhoea/Infectious Diseases in School
May we remind you that if your child has suffered with either or both of the above conditions, or any other infectious disease, you will be asked to keep your child away from school for a certain period of time. This is not only for the protection of your own child but to prevent this and any other condition spreading through school to other children and staff (as it can very rapidly do in a close school environment). This restriction is non-negotiable and children should definitely not be returning to after school or PTA organised activities during this period of time.

Music Tuition
Fees for music tuition are £82 per term and were due to be paid in full on 15th January. Please now pay as a matter of urgency via Parentpay, or if you would prefer via the school office.
