Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back. We hope you have all had a fantastic half term with your families. We are now into the last half term of the year and, there are many exciting events coming up to ensure that it is the best half term of the year! We hope that you  enjoy all of the upcoming events this summer!

Year 5 Residential - Mersea Island
This week our year 5 pupils braved the weather at Mersea Island. Even though they had to suffer a small amount of rainfall they all had a wonderful time. Congratulations to each and everyone of you for committing to all of the activities with a smile on your face. We know that some of you faced your fears during your time in Mersea but fear is nothing but an obstacle that stands in the way of progress. In overcoming your fears you all moved forward stronger and wiser and we are all very proud of you. A huge thank you to our amazing staff who encouraged and supported the pupils and kept them safe while they were away from their families.

Summer Sun
After the rainfall this week, I am hoping that we will start to experience some warmer weather soon. I would like to ask all parents to ensure that children have sun protection applied before they arrive at school. . It is also recommended that children bring caps/hats into school to wear during outdoor times. We will ensure that pupils have access to plenty of water throughout the day to keep them fully hydrated. Thank you for your support and co-operation in this matter.

The LFPA have a small number of options for the children to purchase. If you would like one or more of these items plesae send the correct money along with your selection in an envelope with your child’s name and class on.
