All orders must be back by Monday 16th October to ensure delivery. All orders will be back with us by 4th December in time for cards to be posted and gifts sent. Examples of the card, mug and coaster are available in the school office to show you the quality.

Art week—Week commencing 2nd October 2017

All next week all children will be learning about and creating their own Illustrations based around their literacy learning. They will be given the opportunity to work with a variety of mediums.

We will be using their works for our displays and hope you are looking forward to seeing their masterpieces.

Uniforms and Personal belongings

Please can you ensure that your child’s name is on all items of clothing that they wear to school. If lost it helps to easily return them to the correct person. With the colder weather due just around the corner, please also ensure that your child's PE kit is kept in school in case of any emergencies and can be used as a
spare change of clothes.

Senior Leaders and staff have received initial feedback and the report is being
