Staff Meeting
There will be a Staff Meeting on Monday 12 January.
All children will finish at 12.00noon.

A Reminder re Dropping Off
We must ask that you please note the following important points:

  • People may stop momentarily adjacent to the Bus parking area to drop off children.
  • Please move as far up as possible on that stretch (to the gate past the pedestrian entrance) so that six or seven cars can drop off at the same time.
  • For their safety, children should be dropped only on the school side of the road.
  • Please do not stop on the roundabout.
  • Please also note that parents are not permitted to park in the Staff Car Park when dropping or collecting children. If you are returning to the school to drop off forgotten lunches, schoolbags, etc., we would ask that you park in the bus stop area and enter via the Pedestrian Gate. (Please close gates after you leave)
  • Thank you for your cooperation.

Recycling Reminders
Please remember that unwanted mobile phones and old batteries can be recycled at school in aid of the Jack & Jill Foundation. Children can place these in the correct receptacles just inside the main door.
A reminder too that old 2008 calendars can be useful teaching resources, particularly if they show interesting places around the world, etc. These can be left with Andrea at Reception.
