PTA Race Night is postponed from the 29th April to 20th May!  Details to follow.

The new INSET date is Wednesday 22nd June.

Apologies for the lack of new newsletters and policies etc.  The site is still not accepting any new downloads!  We are doing everything we can to rectify the problem.

Mr Lockwood will not be back for parent/carer consultations.  The new dates for the 4L consultations are Tuesday 26th and 28th April.  Apologies for any inconvenience.  His class will be taught by Mrs Small and a good quality supply teacher up to the Easter holidays.  I will inform you about the situation for the summer term before we break up for Easter.  This is not an ideal situation but we are making every effort to minimise the impact on the class and ensure that standards are maintained.  Email me or call to make an appointment if you have any questions or concerns.  We wish Mr Lockwood a speedy recovery and look forward to his healthy return.

Bingo Night: Friday 18th March 7pm - 9pm

Horse Race Night: Friday 29th April 7pm - 9pm

URGENT for NURSERY Parents and Carers
All Nursery Parents/Carers are required to collect pupils from the gates accessed by East View.  The gates accessed from Florence Place will be closed because we are trying to reduce the disruption of grown ups walking through the outdoor area during lesson time.  Thank you! 

East View vehicle gates are now fully activated!  The vehicle gates are for staff only.  The staff understand the details of how the gates open with an electronic fob and close automatically... please do not try to enter to avoid potential damage to your vehicle.

Attendance: A pupil who takes 10 days holiday (authorised or not) in an academic year will only attain 94.7% attendance.  Please continue to support our target of 95% attendance and take family holidays during the school holidays!

Please contact school with the reason why your child is absent from school
Reporting Your Child's Absence
: Be specific with the reason for the absence.  Please do NOT use the words: 'poorly', 'unwell', 'ill'
The Local Authority will not accept these words as authorised reasons for absence.  Also, if we know the exact reason, we can support you with services like - the school nurse!
