Week three back at school – all is calm🙂

We hope you are all enjoying the greater freedoms that Level 2 brings with it. Thank you to the parents who have given us some feedback about our new procedures around the drop off and pick up times. Any ideas and suggestions are welcome. With so many activities no longer happening – this is a very short newsletter. 

Our teachers are really enjoying having all your children back and just concentrating on teaching and learning. Your children bring us joy each day. Thank you. 

The good news for many is that sports practices have started again.

Mufti Day – Friday 12th June

We are having a fun Mufti day next Friday, 12th June – because we can. 🙂 We will not be asking for a gold coin donation or setting a specific theme. It is just an opportunity to have a bit of a change and as we want to make this a fun day. Weird and wacky or just normal – no pressure – whatever you want to wear. PJ’s all day – whatever!
