Headteachers message

Thank you to all of the parents who attended Parents Evening this week. It was lovely to hear so many positive comments and receive some lovely emails. Thank you for your support and recognising the hard work and dedication of the staff.

We have had a couple of parents with questions that have been emailing the office for appointments. Please remember that our protocol is class teachers first and then the phase leaders/school leads. Thank you.

I can’t quite believe that another Half Term has finished. It may have been shorter but the staff and children have certainly squeezed just as much in! As always, it was great to round the term off with a Core Values day.

Hope you have a great weekend!
