School news 25th April 2019
“Growing together in mind, body and spirit”
Welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday. We have a busy term as always. Lots of dates have been added below. Please check them out now!
I am very pleased to let you know we have made some exciting changes to the curriculum. I hope you children have already come home telling you about their new topics! Please read this here for more information.
Good luck to Year 4 who are on their Escot residential next week.
- Saturday 11th May is our Family Football Funday. More here.
- As part of our Eco School drive, there is a waste awareness event coming up. See here for more – we have loads of special visitors!
- We also have a Bring and buy sale on May 24th. More here.
- I hope you have all read the letter on school budget cuts. This year for the Summer term I am asking all parents to make a £5 (per child, max £10) contribution towards resources for the school. We will add this to the SchoolComms payment system, or you can pay in the usual way at the office using cash or cheque (payable to DCC). This would be in addition to the swimming payment (if your child swims in the summer term).
- Swimming details here.
- Clubs for this term are here
