Newsletter - Friday 8th December, 2017

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls

Dear Parents and Carers,

Reception Admissions September 2018
If your child is looking to join our school in Reception 2018, it is vital that you get your application completed by 15th January 2018 or it is likely you miss out. Last year we had over 190 applications for just 90 places. Even with the extra class, we have more expressions of interest than we have places – YOU MUST APPLY! Attending our Nursery will have no impact on your application. Many parents mistakenly believe that a place in the Nursery = a place in Reception… it doesn’t!

LFPA Christmas Fayre
Our LFPA Christmas Fayre is taking place tomorrow, Saturday 9th December between 11;00 and 15;00 at Mead Primary School. There will be a variety of stalls and refreshments! We will have a raffle with some amazing prizes and, of course, we will have one very special visitor for the children to see-Father Christmas. Please come along and support our schools as all proceeds will help us ensure we are able to continue offering wonderful experiences for our children.

Diary Dates
On Monday 11th, in the afternoon, Maple are class are going to Romford for the unveiling of Emily’s bauble in the shopping centre.
On Tuesday 12th the school choir are going to spread Christmas cheer and are singing at Cole court and Rowan spinebreakers are visiting Hilldene library.
