Four Legged Fiends and Fruit...
Last week I wrote to tell you that there will be a ‘no food outside policy’ for the rest of this term as we want to get rid of the four legged pests. There will be no tuck shop from this week but we will be providing free fruit for the whole school. You may still bring a healthy snack from home if needed.
I notice that a lot of children eat snacks after school and this is fine, as sometimes they are hungry, but please help us to get rid of these pests by taking all your rubbish home.
Many thanks for your help.

The AGM will include a brief review of the previous year’s events, the Treasurer’s report for the year, and the election of PTA Committee members for the forthcoming academic year.
Nominations should be sent in advance of the AGM, for existing committee members willing to stand for re-election and for anyone wishing to stand for the first time.

Whole School Arts and Crafts Day - Can you help?
Are you able to help or share an arty skill or craft?, it can be anything from knitting to cake decorating for our Arts & Craft day in July (date tba).
Please contact Mrs Surtell or the School Office.
Water Bottles and Sun Cream
Now that the weather has warmed up, please ensure that your child comes to school with a filled, named water bottle - just water please, no squash etc. as this attracts flies & wasps.
These can, and will, be refilled during the day as required, so don’t worry if your child comes home with a full bottle as it will have recently been topped up!
Your child should also have a named sun hat with a brim and please also apply a 12 hour sun cream at home. If you wish for your child to reapply suncream before lunch they will need to do this themselves and you should send in a named bottle of cream to be kept in your child’s school bag. Staff are not allowed to apply suncream to pupils.
We always welcome donations of books for our library, so if you are planning a clear out please think of the school.
