Friday Bulletin – 27th April 2018

27 April 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am currently in the process of organising staffing for September 2018. Once this process is complete, I will write to let you know the name of the teacher who will take over responsibility for your child’s class in September.

I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that we hold an open morning for transition at the end of June. This year it will be in the morning of Saturday 30th June. This is an opportunity to meet the teacher, find out about the curriculum for the year ahead, and to ask any questions you may have. We have been offering this opportunity for the past couple of years and feedback from parents and children has been extremely positive. Children feel more confident about what to expect in September and parents have an opportunity to ‘put a face to the name’ and are able to visualise the learning environment for their child. I hope you will put the date in your diary and look forward to seeing you on the day.


Have a lovely weekend.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
