Many thanks to all those who came along to support the PTA Christmas Fayre . A huge £1020.00 was raised which means that we can continue to keep our laptops and i-pads updated to enhance your children’s learning. We all owe immense gratitude for Mrs Gray and her team , including many volunteer parents and friends , for all the organising involved.
Congratulations to all those who won raffle prizes. We have one unclaimed prize – red ticket number 42. You can collect your prize from Jeanie in the front office.
All Christmas Dinner orders have now been taken . No further orders can now be placed and your child will have to bring packed lunch on Thursday 14th December which is also Christmas jumper day.

After School Clubs
Reminder that this is the last week of after school clubs for this term. 6 o’clock club will run up to and including Tuesday 19th December – we finish at 2 o’clock on Wednesday 20th December.
As you may be aware Miss Pestell is now on maternity leave, enjoying the first weeks with her baby boy and Miss Young is settling in nicely with the year 1/2 class. Mrs Whitehead is due to go on maternity leave in the next few weeks and Mr Durham, who has already been working with the year 5/6 children, will join us as she leaves. Mr Bilotta is sadly being treated for peritonitis and we wish him a speedy recovery – we will cover his absence internally. Finally we look forward to welcoming Mrs Bannister to the Year 3/4 team in January as Mr Beesley moves to a Head of School position in Manchester. We wish him all the best with his new adventure!
