School Newsletter

Dear Parents,

Many of you have commented on our two new “parking friends” who have been out each morning to

help remind people not to park on the zig zag lines. We would like to extend this to the end of school but we need your help. If you are one of the 1st to arrive at pick up time please just pop the signs out on the edge of the path opposite the gates. In the same way, if you are the last to leave the playground please tuck them back inside safely. Your help would be very much appreciated.

Sarah Vass - Headteacher
