    6TH APRIL 2016 Dear Parents,

    THANK YOU Thank you all for your continued support over the spring term. I wish you all a very happy holiday and hope that you have a relaxing family break. School re-opens on Monday 25th April.



    There are still some outstanding payments for the Year 6 children going to Boreatton Park in June. Please ensure the payment is made by Friday 8th April.

    DINING WITH PARENTS FEEDBACK Pat, our cook, would like to thank all parents who took the time to respond to the Dining with Parents questionnaire, she is grateful to receive so many responses and hear that you enjoyed the meal. In response to some of your comments: Pat uses organic pasta, flour, rice and dairy products in all school meals. Fresh fruit, yoghurt and salad are offered every day, as stated in the menu, in addition to a varied choice of meal. On a Friday we offer Friday Favourites to pupils; these are meals particularly favoured and enjoyed by pupils. Many of our pupils in Key Stage 2 switch from a packed lunch to a school dinner on this day!

    YEAR 4 BRASS BAND CONCERT Wow, the pupils were fantastic; we obviously have many talented musicians in Year 4, 5 and 6! Thank you to all the parents and grandparents that came to watch and support their child. I would also like to say a big thank you to Aimee and Evies grandad for his generous donation.


    Grab Bags containing a sandwich, fruit, biscuit/cake, bottle of water will be available to order from Pat, as an alternative to a hot school dinner, for all pupils having school dinners after the Easter holiday.
