Dear Parents / carers,

We are hurtling towards Christmas at an alarming rate with tinsel and baubles attached. I wanted to send you a reminder of the events coming up for the rest of December and early January as I am aware you are busy and have lots of other things to be getting on with at this festive time of year.  The children are having so much fun singing Christmas songs rehearsing their performance parts and making Christmas crafts. There is so much to mention I will just attach it in the table overleaf with any updates added.

Christmas card post can go in our letter box in the main entrance. This will be collected daily by the children and given out around school.

Thank you to those people who continue to park at the back of the club car park and reduce congestion on Hay Green Lane.

Good news;

I bring you gifts, in the form of ONLINE PAYMENTS – Via School Comms – we hope to have this Live in the New Year and will keep you posted regarding the progress of this 21st century venture. If you have not recently updated your details during the recent GDPR survey, then please come into school to do this otherwise my gift will not work. J (We will be working initially with the basic package of cashless payments to keep costs of using this down but in the future we may be able to venture into further communication modules.)
