Parent/Carer newsletter – February 7th 2020

Parent Teacher Consultations (PTCs)

These take place next week after school on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. They are a chance to discuss your child’s progress and their time in school. Please make every effort to attend. Teachers are very flexible and are happy to arrange an alternative time if you are unable to make an appointment at the time provided.


Pre-loved uniform

The PTA have arranged a collection of unwanted school uniform to be available for parents/carers during PTCs next week. Thank you for all the donations of uniform items. The PTA will wash all items and display in the meeting room in KS2. We want families to benefit from the pre-loved uniform so there will be an ‘honesty box’ 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. Thank you to the PTA.
