Getting ready for the new term...


I hope that you have all had a magical Christmas and are also looking forward to the start of a new year.  I just wanted to take the opportunity to share with you a couple of important pieces of information for the start of the new term.

School starts on Tuesday 6th January 2016 for all learners.  We look forward to welcoming them all back to school and ready to continue with the great progress that was made last term.  If any of you haven't read my letter to parents or the school news letter please have a look on the website for these.  They give a really good idea of the great work going on in the school.

I also just wanted to take the opportunity to congratulate the schools Eco Committee who achieved Green Flag status at the end of the last term.  This is a great achievement and something the learners can be very proud of.



Also, after our successful Adult Numeracy and Literacy classes we will be launching the next group after the holidays.  There will be more details at the start of term but  just wanted to give you some advance notice.


v We will help you develop strategies to support your child with literacy and / or numeracy.
