Dear Parents, 

The PTA AGM takes place on Monday at 8pm via Zoom.  The link details are on the PTA News page.  We hope many of you will join the meeting to meet the committee members and learn about plans for the coming year.

We are really looking forward to our Open Morning next Thursday.  Although this is open to parents who are considering school places for their children in the next academic year, we also welcome current parents and local residents who would like to take the opportunity to see more of our school and nursery at work.  We will also have the children's artwork on display from a recent project looking at Black History Music.  We hope to see you there.

Best wishes for a lovely weekend,

Valerie Elliott
