Dear Parents / Carers,

We've come to the end of another year and what a busy year it has been! This week has been full of the good things that make Christmas in a primary school such a joy. We enjoyed the Y2/ Y3 Nativity - 'The Inn-spectors' and have listened as KS2 sang carols and Christmas songs and read so beautifully. We have eaten Christmas dinner and reflected and prayed together. None of this would have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our amazing staff whom I would like to thank. I would also like to thank all those who have supported us by providing costumes, practising songs and rehearsing words with their children, it makes our job so much easier! Now it is time to enjoy the company of family and friends so I wish you a peaceful Christmas and a very happy new year and I look forward to seeing you all back in school on Tuesday January 7th.

Mrs Karen Williams
