Friday 10th January, 2020 Weekly Newsletter

Headteacher: Mr J McLucas 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back after the holidays, I hope you had a good time. It was great to see the children coming back to school on Monday full of enthusiasm, ready for an exciting term. While this is a short term it is usually a very productive time, children know the routines and expectations and teachers are able to concentrate on children’s progress. As always, the children will have enrichment opportunities such as trips and visitors,  but this term children will be taking part in the University of Broadford project. I hope that the activities will really capture the children’s imagination.

Lost Property
Please can you make sure children’s clothes are labelled with their name. We have an enormous amount of lost property already and we have only been back at school a week! Lost property is handed in to the Office. Weather permitting, a lost property table will be set up outside the front office each Friday. If your child has lost something please come and hunt through to find the item. Thanks.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend.
Yours sincerely,

Mr Jim McLucas
