A reminder that end of term is Wednesday the 21st December, but that is a designated INSET Day. Therefore, the final day of term for children is Tuesday the 20th.

Another reminder – that Parents Evening appointments are next Wednesday and Thursday, the 9th and 10th.

We will be marking Armistice Day with the traditional silence next Friday, the 11th. We have also manged to secure the services of Mrs Ellis’s husband to play the Last Post, as he has done so for us previously. This is always very poignant and greatly adds to the occasion.
