PARENT’S EVENINGS

We have had a very good take-up of parents/carers booking to see the teachers, however if you have missed your opportunity then please do get in touch directly with your child’s teacher. They may be able to see you at an alternative time to talk through your child’s progress. Can we also take this time to remind you that school finishes on Thursday 14th February.

FEBRUARY

Well we made it through January- what a long month! We are obviously back up and running after the snow on Friday, however the Feb Newsletter may be delayed by a day and come out tomorrow rather than today. We will email it as soon as we can. The weather is forecast to be rather wet this week rather than cold, so please make sure the children have a suitable waterproof coat.

SNOW updates

Friday- school is CLOSED today due to site safety and shortages of staff.

SNOW

Thursday- All things being well, we will have a lovely (small) amount of snow this evening so that things look beautiful in the morning, but not enough to impact on the roads or pavements too much. Our website and Facebook pages will keep you updated if things are more severe so please keep an eye out, along with the text message system (this usually works really well, however sometimes when lots of schools are using the system the texts can take a while to be sent, hence the social media will be more accurate).
