Young Voices

Pupils from Years 5 and 6 left this morning to join other school choirs at the London 02 Arena for the Young Voices concert. It has been lovely to hear the children rehearsing in the school hall over the past few months. If you have a child or children who have gone to London there is an app in the app store under Young Voices. You need your own code plus the password of PAR36486.  A reminder that the coaches should be back by about 11.30 p.m. If this time is significantly different information will be on the school website from about 11 p.m.

We are still looking for one more member of the Governing Body.

A Note from Aspens

Amanda has spoken with the Operations Manager about having  the menu amended in week 3 and changed the Tuesday lunch choice from Mango lime pork to Lasagne garlic bread and salad.

Elliot from the Aspens IT team has made the changes on the Aspens parent pay site, he has also messaged parents about these changes so you will need to re-order your child/children’s lunches.
