Hi all,


A wonderful celebration of all things number was held on 2nd February and an added bonus was the raising of £157.21 for the NSPCC associated charity.


We are very aware of the stresses that some families may be experiencing and the impact that this can have on mental health and well being. Please remember if you need a space to talk we will support you where we can and direct you to other services for support if necessary. So do get in touch.

A good general website offering support is:


Likewise if any families feel they may struggle over half term feeding the family please be in touch with either Claire Kudryk our family support worker or myself and we will support where we can.


Can I ask that parents talk to children about turning off mobile phones once they are on school premises? This includes once they have entered the school external gates where other families are present. The children are aware that they should not have their phones out and I will address this with individuals if it continues to be an issue. This is part of our wider safeguarding remit. Thank you for your support with this.


On Friday 16th February school is closed for an INSET day. We have also arranged for two INSET days at the start of the autumn term. These will be on Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th of September with children returning on the 6th. This is for training for staff who will be in school.


We are very much looking forward to ending our half term with the EYFS performances. They have been practising hard and it will be lovely to see them take to the stage for the first time this week.


I wish you all a very good week.


S Houseman
