Parent/Carer newsletter – February 7th 2020

Dear parents/carers


Parent Teacher Consultations (PTCs)

Thank you for attending PTCs this week to discuss your child’s progress. If you were unable to attend, please ensure to arrange an alternative time with the class teacher. These are important meetings which are an opportunity to see your children’s work and ask any questions you may have.


Pre-loved uniform

The PTA very kindly arranged a collection of unwanted school uniform which was donated by our families. These were made available for parents/carers during PTCs this week. There are still some items left and you are welcome to come into the hall after school on Friday to have a look. An ‘honesty box’ has been provided for families to make donations for the uniform. Children grow out of school uniform so quickly and we feel this is a great opportunity for our families to renew uniform at very little cost.
