World Book Day

This has been re-arranged for Thursday 29 March. The theme of the day this year is “share a story / bedtime stories” and we are inviting children to come to school in their pyjamas. They could bring with them a teddy, pillow and blanket if they want as the children will be enjoying stories throughout the day and these items will make it extra special. A reminder that if you have any pictures for us to share of children reading stories in unusual/different places please send them in as soon as possible, we have some lovely ones already. Class 8 –please bring a change of clothes for when they go swimming, thank you.

Please can we ask parents/carers to be mindful about where they park before and after school. There should be no-one parked on the zig zag lines and please do not block any of the residence driveways. Some of our parents have been very rude to members of the public who also use the pathways and road, it doesn’t make for a good example to our children when bad language is used outside of the school gates. For those parents who drive their children to school please be mindful as to how you drive and park as we have had several phone calls from members of the public suggesting that speed is an issue and also letting the children out of the cars straight onto the road is a danger to our children.
