Welcome to this week’s bulletin and news round-up

A busy first week back after the holiday and one in which the weather has scuppered a few planned outdoor events and clubs. At one point yesterday it looked like the MUGA was becoming a replacement for the recently departed swimming pool and out on the field the water was literally¬† coming up over the top of one’s shoes – ankle deep in parts!

Some important posts below – please note that we’ll be ‘off grid’ communicaiotns-wise on Monday. The Parent-Governor nominations close on Monday too. We have had a couple of nominations so far, which we think will lead us to having to run an election. More on this next week… The post about online safety is hugely important. We don’t intend to spread fear or panic, but we do feel it is important to make sure that our community are well-informed, aware of the risks and possible consequences of misuse of social media. It is always tempting to think “it can’t happen here”, but recent events suggest the need for much more caution and control.

We’re making good headway on our Forest School project, the biggest single new development in our school for many a year and one which we hope will provide fantastic new enrichment and wellbeing opportunities for years to come. All very exciting!
