Happy New Year and welcome back to school! As always, I’ve been so impressed with the way in which the children have returned to school. There was such a calm and orderly atmosphere in our whole school assembly on Monday morning and the children have settled down to work quickly and sensibly after such an exciting Christmas holiday. This term requires a tremendous amount of hard work from all the children and so we really need them to be in school every single day. We also need your support and cooperation as parents and carers so please come and see us if you have any questions or concerns about the work we are expecting the children to complete at home. Reading is absolutely the best thing you can do to help your child so please ask us if you have any questions in this vital area of learning. Many thanks for your ongoing support.
