Head's Newsletter

Dear children, parents, staff and governors,

We have just one week to go until our Auction night – Saturday 18th March – and everyone has been so busy preparing for it.  The children in every class  have made a Class artwork that will be auctioned on the night and I must say they are fantastic!  Thank you to the parents who came into school to help the children with this work.

The Silent auction items can be viewed in the Sharpe  Suite every day next week and there are some high quality pieces to bid for.  Look out for the School Association Parent Mail that will tell you opening times for this.

I do hope that we will see all of you on the Saturday night as this will be a fun packed evening of food, drink and bidding!

On another note,  I hope you have all seen our Chair of Governors letter to you all.  It was with last week’s newsletter.  Mr. Heffernan would like to update you all on the changes in government funding to all schools and to explain the impact it will have on the school finances over the next few years.  He will be giving a presentation of   the ‘Fairer Funding Formula’ on Monday evening, 13th March, at 6pm here in the school hall.  Please do come along to this important presentation. 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. V. Richardson
Head teacher
