Dear Parents,


Happy New Year to all. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas. Thank you for turning up in such numbers to our Carol Service and for co-operating with all the arrangements. I’m sure you’ll agree with me that the children were stunning! A very heartfelt thank you also to all the staff, each of whom made huge efforts to prepare for the occasion.


We re-open on Monday next, as you are probably aware. School will close early on Wednesday, January 11th,at 1:20 pm, for a staff meeting. Please do let creches and minders know, and maybe put a reminder on your phone (or on your fridge!) as we nearly always have a few children not collected on these occasions.


Just want to remind you as well that we are CLOSED for the whole day on Tuesday, January 17th for staff training mandated by the Department of Education.


I am sure the Parents Association will be in touch with you soon with regard to after-school activities, but these do not normally start for a couple of weeks into the term. Chess coaching will NOT be on next Monday, but will restart the following Monday, January 16th.


Thanks again for all your co-operation and support, and best wishes again for 2017!


Kind Regards,
