A message from the Head of School…

I hope all of our families had a lovely half term with their children and enjoyed the different celebrations such as Halloween and Bonfire night.

There is only 6 weeks left until we break up for Christmas! On the newsletter are some important Christmas Dates for you to be aware of. Please can I remind everyone that parent/carer consultation meetings are next week and the late night meeting is Wednesday 13th November 3:00-6:45pm. There is still time to make an appointment with your child’s class teacher.

Next week we will be sending out some information to all our families on how to keep your children safe online. We will be sharing information about Facebook, Tick Tock and WhatsApp. Please look out for these letters in your children’s book bag.
