· Please ensure your child has a sunhat in school.  Hopefully it’s going to get warmer soon!

· RAMADAN – It is not recommended that children of primary school age should be allowed to fast.  If you are allowing your child to fast at school during the month of Ramadan you will need to speak with Mrs Mitchell beforehand.  This will only apply to children in Year 6 – no other children will be allowed to fast in school. (Even children in Year 6 are too young and obviously this time it will be a very long fast).


The countdown to Summer Sports Day Event begins.  If anyone is interested in helping on a stall please contact Ayaiz Ahmed, Parent Governor.  If you have any unwanted gifts you would like to donate as raffle prizes please leave these at the School Office.


Wear what you want (NO football shirts) and donate chocolate for the tombola at the Summer Sports Day.

Yours sincerely

Julia Sandiford-Mitchell
