Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 17th May 2019

17 May 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

It’s been a very busy week at Kells Lane. Our Year 6 children have worked incredibly hard and sustained the most amazing concentration and resilience during their SATs this week. We couldn’t have asked for more from our children; we are extremely proud of them. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs King and Mrs Anderson-Harrison for all their hard work too. I would also like to thank all the parents of children in Year 6 for your support over the years. I hope you all enjoy a well-deserved ‘SAT free’ break this weekend.


Good luck to everyone taking part in the Children’s Cancer Run at Newcastle Racecourse this Sunday. I hope the sun is shining.


Have a lovely weekend.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
