Welcome back to the beginning of another school year, particularly to those of you joining us as new parents or children, either in Y3 or in other years, and to the returning and new members of the staff team. This is the first of my fortnightly newsletters which I hope will keep you informed of forthcoming events, activities and achievements in school. The biggest news is that at the end of the summer holiday we took possession of our new classroom building and, I hope you’ll agree, it is stunning! It has some implications for routines around school though, particularly first thing in the morning and at the end of the day. There is not much room outside the only door that we can use at the moment, so having the Y4s collected from the hall exit is hopefully helping with that. However, the ground to either side of the new path has now been seeded so it would help enormously if both parents and children could keep to the pathway and not walk on the verges.
