Dear Parents

It is such a pleasure to see everyone back from the Easter break and I trust that you all had a restful and fun holiday.  It has been rather an unusual start to the beginning of a term with extra holidays and shortened weeks to contend with.  We still have a very busy time ahead of us so please make a note of the dates at the end of this letter which you will also find on our school website.

As the summer weather is upon us it is time to consider cooler clothing and sun protection.  Boys may wear grey shorts and girls can keep cool in fresh summer dresses.  The preferred dress for school is from Marks and Spencer Product Code:- T766436 in blue/white stripe.   Official school sun hats can be purchased from school (£6.50 each or £12.00 for two) and if you wish to bring in sun cream for your child please could you also ensure that you complete a permission slip.  ALL children must have a pair of black ballet shoes and plimsolls as well as the standard P.E. kit, clearly named, and this should remain in school.

We ran our Playscheme at half term and that proved to be highly successful and the children who attended had a marvellous time.  Playscheme will be running during half-term and will be available all through the summer holiday.  Playscheme will also run on the afternoon of 8th July 2011 after school has closed for the summer holiday.  If you wish to book a place please send me an email.

Clubs begin in earnest this week. Mr Dan will be running Football club during Tuesday lunchtimes, Mrs Cooke will run Sewing Club after school on Wednesdays and I shall run Computer Club during Thursday lunchtimes.  A letter will be sent out so please return them promptly to secure a place.

We are planning to hold two more Open Days this term so please spread the word to anyone you know who might be interested in our lovely school.  If you can display a poster then please come and see me and I will supply you with one.

Some dates for your diary.
