The Kirk Fenton Pro

Weekly newsletter for staff 15th March 2019


Another busy week completed and a chance to talk to parents about their children. I have had some lovely feedback from parents this week and from talking to you all, it seems that parents' evening was overall very positive. This is down to your hard work and commitment to our pupils so thank you.

I have no reflection this week as I am writing from home & left the book at school but I did want to draw your attention to all the Lent and Easter resources for primary schools on the Christian Aid website. I will be using the assembly resources over the next few weeks in worship.

Have a lovely (if soggy) weekend,

Karen x
