January 2018 – Newsletter
Congratulations and many thanks to all the readers and choirs organised by the staff and prepared by Mrs Campbell and Miss Knox.
Everyone spoke and performed really well!
Also to Rev W Bingham for leading our annual Christmas Service. Very well done to our KS1 children who presented Barney! An excellent performance telling the story of ‘Silent Night’.

Car Park Safety/Keeping Our Children Safe
Once again we would like to remind everyone to drive safely through the school car park especially on these dark, rainy days! When picking children up please park in appropriate spaces and leave a clearance for traffic to keep flowing carefully! Do not park on the zebra crossings and be cautious of children using them! When parking on the Harbour Road, please leave spaces clear for children to cross with care with the Patrol Officer.
