Thank you to all the Year 3 and 4 children and the all the staff in the two classes for all the hard work you put in to the play. 

Holy Week mass- On Tuesday Father Clement came into school for our Holy Week mass. It was a lovely service and we were proud with how well behaved and reverent the children were in our mass, as well as snging beautifully.

Parents speaking to teachers- Communication is really important to us. If you would like to speak to a class teacher about any issues concerning your child, please make an appointment to see the class teacher. Please do not try to discuss issues when you are dropping your child off or picking your child up. The teacher needs to ensure the class's safety and they cannot do this if they are having conversations while meeting and greeting children or making sure they are going home with the right adults. Thank you for your support with this. 

Reading- It is really important for you to continue to read daily with your children. Many parents have stopped doing this recently and we have already seen a difference in some children's reading abilities and progress because they are not practising reading regularly at home. When reading with your children, please make sure you are asking them lots of questions about the text and checking they understand the vocabulary in the text. Study after study has shown that those children who read regularly are the ones who are most likely to fulfil their ambitions. If your child reads, they will succeed - it's that simple! 

Car parking- Please can I remind parents about parking in appropriate and suitable places. We are regularly getting complaints from neighbours about people parking across their gates or in the bus stop area or in a dangerous manner. There are 2 PCSO's coming the first week back to look at the parking situation. Thank you for your support with this. 


Attendance- If your child is poorly please call or email the office before 8.45am to let us know. Please provide appointment letters if you are taking your child out of school for medical appointments.   


School Milk– If you wish your child to have school milk, please register at 


Payments to school– Please can parents make sure they are up to date with their payments to school for dinner money, breakfast club, afterschool club and the Robinwood residential. 


Parents workshops -Working in partnerships is important to us. We have started putting on workshops for parents and have been pleased with the attendance so far.  

Please complete the questionnaire on the link below to let us know what other workshops you would like in the future...  


Parents workshops evaluations  -We would love feedback on how useful you have found the workshops if you have attended them. If you have time please complete the google form below. Thank you. 


Thank you for your continued support of your children and our lovely school. 

Have a Holy and peaceful Easter,

With love and prayers, 

Mrs Pearson
