Parent Evenings – these will take place in the school hall for all classes on Tuesday 10th February and Wednesday 11th February between 3.30pm – 6.30pm. Appointment sheets will be available in the Foyer to sign up for an appointment with your child’s teacher from Monday 2nd February. Please note that the appointment is for 10 minutes, however if you realise that you may need longer, please make a separate appointment with the class teacher so as not to delay other parents.


Travelling Book Fair – this will be held after school in the hall, during week commencing 9th February. Parents and children are invited to visit the Fair from 3.15pm – 3.45pm Monday to Friday. Books purchased at the Fair will earn the school commission which can then be spent on books and resources for the children’s classes.
