Lunch boxes

Thanks for ensuring lunchboxes are balanced nutritionally. Please can I ask that sweets are not sent in lunchboxes. The BBC provide some great ideas for packed lunches, the link is below.

Coats/Jackets

Yesterday, there were a number of pupils without coats. Although the day started fine, it ended up raining lightly over lunchtime – classic British weather! In such cases, we will take children out for some fresh air with their coats on, so please send coats/jackets in, unless the sun is cracking the flags!

For now, have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing everyone on Monday.

Mr Aldridge
