Chicken Pox

We need to inform you that there is a confirmed case of Chicken Pox in Form II.


New Arrangements for PE bags

From now on Reception and Form l girls will be going home in their PE kits on a Friday afternoon. This is so that they can have a longer PE lesson and the kit can be washed. All other Forms will also be taking their kit home on a Friday so that it can be washed and parents can regularly check that sizes still fit and that their daughter has everything she needs.

Jeans for Genes and Breast Cancer Awareness

Next Friday is our annual mufti  fundraising day for the above two charities.  Everyone is to come to school wearing an item of denim and an item of pink together with a minimum of £1.00 donation which will be collected by your daughter’s Form Teacher. Sensible shoes and a warm coat are of course still necessary for outdoor play.
