Friday Bulletin – 20th October 2017

20 October 2017

Dear Parents and Carers,

It has been an incredibly busy half term here at Kells Lane. The children have worked so hard and are now ready for a good rest over the half term break. Well done to all our children for their achievements over the last seven weeks; we look forward to sharing their progress with you during next term’s parents’ evenings.

This week, we hosted a training exercise involving school leaders from Gateshead and Sunderland schools. I am extremely proud to tell you that our visitors were very impressed by the children’s behaviour and achievement, and the high expectations of staff.

Thank you for your continued support this half term.

I hope you have a lovely half term.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
