Message from Mrs Hall
It has been great to welcome the children back to school this week for the final half-term. There are lots of great learning opportunities to enhance our curriculum, therefore please check the calendar carefully so that your child doesn’t miss out. We are currently in the process of organising classes for next year and we hope to let you know all arrangements before the transition mornings on the 13th and 14th July. We are delighted to report that we are fully staffed for September. If you have any questions or worries about next year, please don’t hesitate to ask. Thank you for your continued support.
Attendance for the week before Half Term
Class with the best attendance: Seahorses (99.2%)
Unfortunately, when we returned to school on Monday the internet was not working which caused some problems across the school for children, parents/carers and staff. The issue has been resolved and we working hard to ensure the children are able to catch-up on their AR quizzing. Thank you for your understanding.
The theme of our assemblies for next week will be: What do House Captains do? How do you become a House Captain?
