Dear Parents

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the Christmas events at school. Some parents have enquired about babies and very young children coming to the performances. As long as parents are proactive in taking out any child who is upset or noisy, I do not mind young children coming. It would be helpful if parents of young children could sit at the end of rows so it is easy to leave unobtrusively. This offers respect for the performers who have worked hard, and also other parents wishing to hear the performance.

I am delighted to be able to offer the opportunity for children to attend lunchtime language clubs in French or Mandarin.

The clubs will run for children from Reception to Year 6 in January for half an hour. We need to gauge interest and numbers before term finishes. Please download the application form from our website.

Voting For PTA Expenditure

To enable you to express your preference for PTA expenditure of funds, there are voting buttons under PTA news on the school website.

School Trips

An increasing number of our parents are working and we sometimes need to seek support from parents from other classes for assistance during school trips.

I would be grateful if you could fill in the form below if you would be happy to support the school community in this way. Please indicate if you hold an Enhanced DBS check.
