Dear Parents/Carers

Change of Details
Just a reminder that if you have recently bought a new mobile or have recently moved house or changed any home or work contact details, please can you let the office know so they can amend you child’s contact details.

It is vital that we have up-to-date details at all times.

Reminder
During the first three weeks of May children in all year groups [except reception and year 1] throughout England have their annual assessments.  KS2 (Year 6) SATs tests will take place during the week commencing the 13th May.  We would also ask all families to avoid taking holidays during this period.

Play Equipment Before and After School
Please do not let your children play with the large toys in the reception area or on any of the school play equipment before or after school. This is a health and safety issue and the equipment is only for use during school hours when supervised by a member of staff.

Bottle Top Collection
Just a reminder that if you have been collecting bottle tops they need to be in the school office this Monday.  A big thank you from Year 6 pupils for helping towards this art project!
