Thank you to all those parents who were able to spare some time to complete the Parent Questionnaire sent out last week. We had a really positive response; it was great to find out parental views about different aspects of school life and learn more about what you feel makes our school special and what we can improve on. We will share a summary of feedback with you once it has been analysed and action points considered.
The PTA are busy planning some exciting events for this half term:-
Thursday 19th May - Get your dancing shoes on! Sparky Marky is here for the Spring Disco!!!
This event is for children only - if want to join the fun and help out then do get in touch with PTA! Pay on the door. Suggested Donation £3
Thursday 26th May - Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Teddy Bear Trail
As part of the celebrations for the Queen’s Jubilee, the children are being invited to take part in a Teddy Bear Trail in the school woodland on Thursday 26th May. This event is being organised by the PTA to raise funds for the school and will take place during the school day. We are asking for a donation of £2 and at the end of the trail the children will receive a small, edible treat. Please log on to ParentPay to make your donations.
The children are also busy creating some extra special bunting for the occasion!
