A message from the Head of School…
I would just like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our families for supporting the Christmas Fair and attending the Winter Art Show. The school would also like to say a massive thank you to all the Friends of Haxby Road for organising such a magical fair. We are very lucky to have such a dedicated team.
On Friday 20th December, I will be leaving school to start my maternity leave. In my absence, Alex Winter and Rachel Malster-Hinett (Deputy Head) will be looking after the school. Alex Winter has previously been a Headteacher and currently works for Ebor Academy Trust. Over the next few weeks you will have an opportunity to meet Mrs Winter.
This week our Early Years children were very lucky and got to experience the snow in Forest Schools. The children thoroughly enjoyed this experience.
Please can we ask our families not to block the residents’ driveways in Greenfields during drop off and collection. Thank you for your support with this matter.
