be delighted to know that this time your children will

thanks for your cooperation during our recent “weather
crisis” and for the community spirit shown in clearing
the school grounds and carpark. We are also aware that
many families were marooned and unable to get their

those are the only absences in the year. 238/280 pupils

Text-a-Parent is proving very successful in keeping
families up to date. If you change your mobile number
please let us know immediately.
