Head Teacher’s Message

Dear Parents/Carers,

It has been a super fast month and it is now ‘all systems go’
until Christmas. You should have already received a booklet
with pantomime info, a school show ticket form and dates for
your diary for December. If your child has not brought this
home, please contact the office. If you can help with any
events we are holding or accompany us on any trips please
let us know!

This month’s newsletter contains the dates you should
already have, along with dates we have set for the rest of the
school year.

As always, please contact the office if you would like a chat
or a meeting to discuss any issues or concerns you may

Thank you for your support in 2019
and I look forward to working with you
and your children in 2020.

In partnership,

Susan Lauder
Head Teacher
