The great news is that the swimming pool is nearly ready! If Environmental Health’s water test is ok and they give us the all clear, we will be ready to take the plunge on next week! Summer really must be here?! ( just don’t look out the window).
So get your ‘swimmers’ ready please. Class teachers will let you know exactly when they plan to take your children in to the pool for a swim. There will also be swimming club taking place after school when we come back after the half term break. More details to follow.
In the meantime could you please make sure that your child has a one piece swimming costume and towel. You may also like to send in goggles (adjusted to fit please) and inflated armbands, if needed. Could you please make sure that all items are clearly named and in a separate kit bag. Thank you.

And Finally a reminder…
Your view matters. We would really like to know what you think of the school. On the top of the school website there is a link to the 2016 Parent Survey. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/7DMB8SN. We would like to know how we are performing against the Ofsted Parent View criteria. Please take a few minutes to complete, it will really help us to continue to move the school ever forward. If you don’t have internet access there are paper copies available from Mrs Pike.
