Welcome back to the start of a new school term, we hope that you had a relaxing break and that the children enjoyed the rest. This term is one of our busiest on the lead up until Christmas. Please look for key dates on the school website.

Some of you may have noticed that Mrs. Steventon is absent at present. She has had surgery on her thumb and is due back to nursery on 14th November. We wish her our best wishes and look forward to welcoming her back.

Please can I remind you all that we offer additional nursery sessions priced at £15 per session, including lunch time supervision. These sessions are very flexible and parents can book children in as often or as little as they wish. Please make sure that you book and pay for these sessions in advance in the school office. In addition to this we also offer breakfast club priced at £2.50 from 7.30am-8.40am and after school club priced at £3.50 from 3.20pm-5.45pm.

The self service snack on a Wednesday has been very popular with the children. They have enjoyed pouring, spreading, cutting and of course eating the snack. Thank you for your contribution of £1.50 per term for baking and Wednesday’s snack.

New to this term is the Library in the Nursery reception area at the beginning of each session.
