Dear Parents,

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and were able to enjoy the sunshine-although I don’t know what’s happened to it since! It is wonderful to be back at school for the summer term as we have so much to look forward to! Lots of exciting trips are planned including the year 5 residential to Mersea. Mr Robinson and Mr Stanbridge have been busy planning the school sports days and other summer events such as Go Bonkers Day and 3sixty bicycle stunt team sessions have been planned.

Thank you to everyone who visited Mead Farm last term-your support is much appreciated and we raised over £600 to help towards the cost of keeping our animals.

Please be aware that school will be closed on Thursday 23rd May as we are being used as a Polling Station.

Well done to them!. The overall attendance was disappointing at only 94.2% which is below our target-hopefully we can improve on this next week!
