This week’s message (Friday 25 March 2022)

Friday 25 March 2022

This week’s message comes from Miss Beatson, our Head of School…

We’re now coming to the end of the Spring term and, with the warmer weather and lighter evenings, it certainly feels like Spring’s in the air. The sunny, dry days have meant the children have been able to play on the school field and use the playground equipment more often – it’s certainly brought a lot of fun to our playtimes.

It’s clear from absences that Covid is still very much present in the community; thanks for your vigilance and support in trying to keep our staff and children safe.

Thank you to everyone who attended the parent-teacher meetings last half term. This half term, teachers will send home your child’s second Learning Update of the year – look out for them on Wednesday.

This week, it was fantastic to be able to hold our first PTA event in two years! The cake sale was a great success and I’d like to say a big thank you to the parents who have re-launched the PTA and to everyone who donated baked goods. We will let you know how much we’ve raised as soon as we’ve had a count up.

Thank you to all those families who are giving a little bit more time in the morning to park further away from school. This really helps with the parking and congestion on Hallfield Lane and it helps keep the roads safe for all our children. Even better, if you can, please leave your cars at home and walk to school as much as possible.

Finally, a reminder about our Easter celebrations next week. We’re looking forward to seeing lots of decorated eggs for the Easter egg competition on Monday. On Thursday, we are going to St James’ Church for our Easter Service – parents/carers are welcome to attend.

I hope you have a happy and healthy weekend – it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday (and don’t forget to put your clocks forward this weekend!).
