Dear Parents/Guardian

Welcome back!  I hope that your holiday was enjoyable. Judging by the inventive holiday challenges our children have enjoyed an exciting summer holiday. As we settle into the new term I would like to thank you for sending your children back in their smart uniform and ready to start the school term.

Reception Classes: We welcome 45 children into Miss Stuart and Mrs Walker’s classes.

Reading & Reading Challenge: Whether doing the library challenge or reading other books at home I want to encourage all families to make reading important. The home-school reading is just part of the expectation. We will be running reading meetings/training parents this year. If you are worried about your child’s reading then please make an appointment with me to discuss your worries.

Parking- Milford Club Car Park: Please help! Please can I respectfully ask you to park in Milford at the end of Sandford Road. Thank you to all parents who support us in this.

Doctors & Dentist: Please could appointments be organised after school if possible (or in the afternoon). Pupils get a register mark if they return to school following the appointment.
