Notices for Week beginning 17th December

14th Dec 2018

I would like to thank everyone for their generous support for our Big Christmas Raffle - congratulations to all the winners. So far we have raised £1200 for St Vincent de Paul and hope to add to this with our parent donations instead of presents for the staff.

We will be having our Nursery Open Day on Tuesday 17th at 1.45pm to 3.00pm please spread the word among family and friends.

I will be sending home a Newsletter this week with updates from the whole school.

I would like lastly to say huge thanks to everyone for their words of support and encouragement over the last term it really did mean a lot to me. To show our appreciation the staff would like to invite to invite all children and parents to an extra special breakfast in the school hall - see below.

Finally Happy Christmas to everyone and a peaceful new year.
