Headteacher’s Newsletter

Welcome to another ‘new look’ newsletter! We would welcome any feedback you have on which formats you think work best and make the newsletter an easy read on your device.  Thank you to all those who attended the FOSCS AGM yesterday evening. It was lovely to see some new faces joining us to plan this year’s fundraising activities. Just over £8000 was raised through donations and events last year which has been used to enhance your children’s learning greatly through, among other things, purchase of a large history timeline and funding our Artis sessions each week which the children benefit from hugely. We could not provide these additional opportunities with the levels of funding given to schools as they currently are. Please help this relatively small group of parents to plan and organise events this year if possible and attend them if you can!

Please renew parent permissions

For safeguarding reasons, if your child walks home alone, or if they are routinely collected by a person other than their parent, please send a brief email to the office confirming this.  On the odd occasions when your child’s class has a cover teacher, we then have all the information centrally and we know it is up to date for this year.
