Dear Parent/Guardian,

Staffing

We are pleased to welcome Mrs Carla Duggan onto our staffing team after Easter. She will be working every morning supporting pupils in class and every lunchtime.

Birthdays

Happy Birthday to Yvie in YR who celebrated her birthday this week. Over the Easter break Lacey in Y6 and Kai in Y4 will celebrate their birthdays.

Extra curricular clubs

Next term we have set up some additional clubs.

Gymnastics will run on Wednesday but is already fully booked as COVID regulations limit our clubs to 15, Smart Raspberry cookery club will run on Thursdays, but unfortunately the craft club will not run next term. Piano and guitar lessons in school are also running. Please contact the club provider if you require any more information.

Online safety information

A new document with advice and support from the government regarding online safety has been produced and we have posted this on the school website under e-safety. We have been made aware that a number of children have been accessing online games which are not appropriate for their age. There has been bad language and unkind messages also being sent. Please ensure that you supervise your child when online and follow the safety protocols.
