Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 5th April 2019

5 April 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

The staff and children have had a productive spring term and are looking forward to recharging their batteries in preparation for an action-packed summer term. There are lots of things to look forward to as you can see below, including our Year 6 residential visit to Holland. Please do keep an eye on the diary dates as new events are added regularly.

Mrs Heath, our school business manager, will be retiring shortly after we return from the Easter holidays. She has worked tirelessly over the last 10 years to help make our school a better place. I am sure you will join me in thanking Mrs Heath for her commitment to our children, and in wishing her a very happy retirement.

I hope you manage to take some time to relax and spend time with friends and family when Easter comes.

Here’s a short Easter film for you to enjoy at home.



Thank you for all your support this term.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
