Dear Parents and Carers
New School Building Plans
I am happy to be able to inform you that the new building plans have been approved by the
Local Authority Planning Committee and the building works will start shortly after Easter.
We will also be converting the house near the entrance to the school into a classroom and
offices so that we can accommodate an additional Early Years class in September.
Ms Murphy has left the school to return to mainstream teaching and we will be joined by
Mr L Belcher.
Miss Lee, Ms Winiarczyk and Ms Markowska have all started their Maternity Leave.
Mr Austin who has been working in the secondary department will be returning to Australia,
and we will be welcoming two new Teaching assistants, Suzanne Burd and Ranjit Cheema.
I am pleased that the school has been awarded a grant by the Jack Petchey Foundation in
order to fund a breakfast club. We are currently piloting the scheme in order to find the best
way to provide pupils with food and a drink that they like, that is also healthy and quick to
serve. So far we have found that for a number of children who may have had a long journey
to school this has helped with their concentration and their behaviour. We will now be
exploring ways we can fund this in the future.
Don’t forget to bring your bags of unwanted, clean clothes, shoes and bags etc to school by
Friday 15th April. The money raised for these items will go towards our Christmas collection.
