We finish the week with our E for Excellence assemblies.

Reception Pupils
Our reception pupils started full time this week and have been enjoying their time in school already. Once again a very warm welcome to all of our new families. We look forward to our nursery pupils started full time over the next few weeks and getting to know them all.

Parent Governor Elections
On behalf of the staff and Governors I would like to thank Mr mark Borrell for supporting the school in the role of Parent Governor for the past few years. Mr Borrell is going to continue to serve as a co-opted member of our governing body but we are looking for a new parent governor volunteer. If you are interested in standing for this position please contact Mrs Nicholls before next Friday 27th September via the school office.

After School Clubs
You will recieve club letters and choices next week and all after school clubs will start on Monday 30th September.

Havering Catering Services
Week beginning 23rd September is week 1 on the Havering catering services menu. All meals are served with unlimited salad and vegetables and cost £2.25.

Please be reminded to top up your child’s catering account as we cannot provide dinners for pupils whose accounts exceed a debt of £10.
