Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you to all of the  the year 5 parents/carers who attended the Mersea information meetings on Tuesday.  It sounds as though the children have a really fantastic few days to look forward to! Please ensure that you return the medical information forms distributed at the meeting  to school a.s.a.p.
Diary Dates
Monday 7th May is a bank holiday and the school is closed to all pupils.
On Tuesday 8th we are hosting a Maths league in school, good luck to all of those pupils involved.

Royal Wedding Celebrations - Friday 18th May
As you are all aware Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting on Saturday 19th May at Windsor Castle. We are celebrating in school by wearing wedding headwear for the day. Veils, top hats, tiaras, bowler hats & fascinators the bigger and brighter the better! It doesn't matter if they are home made or handed down from grandparents, we are looking forward to seeing all the pupils Royal wedding ready!

Swap Shop - Thursday 24th May 3.00 - 4.00 pm
On Thursday 24th May 2018, we will be holding our first children’s clothing swap shop. A swap shop is a great way to help families support each other, whilst emptying your wardrobe of those unwanted items. Often children grow out of their clothes so quickly, that many parents/carers are left with perfectly good clothes with plenty of wear still in them.
If you have clothes to donate, then we will gratefully receive them from Monday 30th April. To help with the organisation we would appreciate it if clean clothes can be donated in bags, labelled with gender and size.
For hygiene reasons we are unable to accept stained or damaged clothes or underwear/swimwear.
Any clothes which we have left after the event will be donated to a local charity shop. Thank you for your continued support.
