Wednesday 15th May – Governor day. We will be welcoming governors into our school for governors to see a snapshot of our school in action, to soak up the ethos and see some curriculum subjects in action. Governors will be in the playground between 3:15 and 3:30 to speak to parents, so please do approach them and talk to them.

On Friday afternoon we will be joining the Junior school for the visit of Andy Day as part of his author visit.
