There is a dedicated email address for questions, comments and feedback at email@example.com . Parents are also welcome to use the Governor Comments Box in the main entrance. There is a Federation page on the school website which will address frequently asked questions as these come in.
Please get involved.

Our Easter Gardens
The African Garden has been decorated for Easter by Mrs. Murphy and the children. It’s looking beautiful thanks to home learning – the children are so engaged and enthusiastic. Thank you for your support. We can all be very proud of the way our children think of others, especially during Lent. Pupils Mathilda and Paolo raised £30 and £20 respectively this week with cake sales for Mary’s Meals - a fantastic achievement!
Our collection to date is £370.32 and counting. We will have a final total when we return to school after Easter. Thank you for your generosity.
Each class has a blue beaker similar to the ones that Mary's Meals use to feed children world wide. The children bring in as many pennies at they can (each meal costs just 7p!) to fill the beaker. We will then keep track of the class with the most coins each week.
Further information on Mary's Meals can be found here: www.marysmeals.org.uk
Bring & Buy
The Bring & Buy sale raised £225 with a further ‘pop-up’ sale organised by Mrs. Nicholls on Monday raising another £100 for Dementia UK. Thanks to Mrs. Bailey and Mrs. Mills who helped to set it up and to you for coming along. Remaining items will be donated to local charities.

Caring for our Oceans
These are some poster designs that Year 2 children designed about caring for the oceans, following the class work we have been doing about the storm whale story. The children have learnt about how important it is to care for ocean life, in particular by reducing the amount of plastic waste that ends up in the sea.
Other Eco News
Year 2 have been making bird feeders using cheerios this week which they are hanging from the trees. We now have some bird identification sheets along the fence next to Nursery so that children can have a go at naming birds that they see in the school environment.
