WEEKLY NEWSLETTER

Issue 15 – 5th January 2018

First edition of 2018!

MAY WE WISH YOU ALL A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We hope you all had a lovely Christmas holiday with plenty of fun family time. Staff would also like to say a big THANK YOU for all the lovely presents received in the run up to Christmas – they were all much appreciated.

 

Annual questionnaires

Yesterday we sent home our annual parent questionnaire – we are also surveying staff, students, Trustees and Governors, and results will be posted in school and on the website later this term.

 

PLEASE TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO COMPLETE THE FORM AND RETURN IT – LET US KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE THE FORM ELECTRONICALLY – THANK YOU!

 

Quiz night

A flyer concerning the Quiz Night fundraiser on Friday 26th January was also sent home this week. This is a fun event where we look to raise a serious amount of money for the school as well as well as having a really enjoyable evening!

Space – and tables – are limited so be sure to send your form in ASAP if you want to bring a team.

ROMEO AND JULIET

For those who missed our performance at the Shaw Theatre in November, as part of the Shakespeare Schools Festival, you have a last chance to see it. Mars Class will reprise their moving performance at our assembly next Friday.

Please be seated by 2.30pm – thank you.

 

NEW LUNCH MENU

A copy of the new lunch menu is attached to this newsletter. Next week we will be on week 2. Lunches cost £3.15per day, this can be paid daily, weekly or termly.  If you wish to pay by online banking please call and we will let you have our banking details.
