Dear Parents,

When you receive this letter, I will probably be ghyll scrambling in The Lakes.  I’m a great believer in outdoor education and I’m sure the plummeting temperature will be good for the soul over the weekend as pupils in Year 7 & 8 are put through their paces.


Parent Survey

Please remember to complete our survey.  Your views on your school are very important to us.  Please can I ask you to add detail should you not like something we do (or indeed if you love something we do!)  It’s important for me to know why you dislike/like something rather than just know it’s not what you wish to see.  If you need the link resending please contact the School Office.


Fireworks Night – Friday 9 November

Please remember to book your tickets for this not to be missed event.  Letters should have gone home with the children today and can also be found on the website.


Cinema Night – Friday 19 October

The PTA will be running a cinema night on either side of the pond at the end of this half term.  Forms are attached and should be returned by the end of next week.



Many thanks to those parents who attended the AGM and to those parents who have supported the PTA over the last 12 months.  Our congratulations – and thanks – go to the following office holders:

Chair: Lesley Wratten
Vice-Chair: Karen Shaw
Secretary: Georgina Cowley
Treasurer: Janet Craggs


Nominations for School Council

Don’t forget that your Chair of School Council, Victoria Duncan, is looking to hear from any parents who wish to be considered for a place on School Council.  Victoria can be contacted via either school office.


Open Morning

Thank you to you and the children for your help with Open Morning.  Please continue to promote our wonderful school to your friends and family!


I hope you have a lovely weekend.  I look forward to coming back to work on Monday for a rest!


With best wishes

Ken James
