  • Newsletter Friday 16th July 2021

    Published 16/07/21

     We’ve come to the end of a strange yet very successful school year. Our children have all coped amazingly with the challenges faced during lock down and our teachers and support staff – along with all parents and carers and members of the wider community – have all been amazing too. Happily we look forward to school being back to at least ‘near normal’ in September.  Please see our final newsletter of the year, which has lots of information including activities and support on offer throughout the summer. We also attach flyers below with details.

    We will be reinstating our previous start and finish times, which are listed below. Do look out for an e-mail before we return to school with information on new gates etc in light of new fences and improvements which are happening to the playgrounds at both sites over the Summer holidays.

    We wish you, the children and our whole school community a super, happy and safe Summer holiday and look forward to the children’s return on Thursday 2nd September.
