Newsletter 27 - 21st April 2023

Dear Parents and Carers,

We welcome you all back for our Summer Term!  What a difference a day makes – the promise of spring and warmth yesterday to the downpours today!  I am ever hopeful that the weather will soon break and our much needed sunshine will reappear.  The children however look wonderful in their summer uniforms.


This term we look at our School Value of Justice and will explore what this means to us.  We have already had lots of ‘legal’ discussions about rules and our focus will include what is fair? what is freedom? what is unjust? and to celebrate as a community how diverse and unique we all truly are.


We have a very busy term ahead so please check the school calendar for dates of events. One such event is our Sports Day. Please put Thursday 15th June in your diaries and we'll let you know more details soon.


Have a lovely weekend!

Mrs Barnes
