Monk Fryston Weekly News 11.6.21

Support from home.

It is great to see the children back in school and refreshed after the half-term break. We have really noticed how well they are applying themselves to their learning, and there is some great progress being made as a result. We would like to acknowledge all the support that you give at home – thank you for reading with your child, supporting their homework, and encouraging them to do their best. We can tell that this is making a difference and are very grateful.

Eco Warriors

We have some great news to share with you! As you know. We set eco challenges for our pupils throughout lockdown. We are delighted that our Eco Warriors have received a Highly Commended Better Energy School Award for this project, which comes with a prize of £100 for our school. This is a wonderful national achievement. We would like to thank all our Eco Warriors and Mrs Gatenby for their hard work.

Uniform Orders - message from Classroom Clothing.

Due to the social distancing, mask wearing and sanitising regulations still in place at the moment, we have decided to work on a similar basis to last year in order to maintain the safety of our customers and employees.

This means all primary school sales will be through our website’s click and collect/delivery system only.

Our cut-off date to guarantee sizes of items is 1st August 2021.

This means that we may not be able to guarantee all sizes after this date and there may be delays of products when ordering. Please use our detailed size guides to help you.

We have however, ordered a large amount of stock already to try and eliminate the risk of running out and we will do all that we can to communicate this with our customers and help them with getting their uniform this summer.

We will accept returns and exchanges which must be done through our website,
