Kirk Fenton News
29th November 2019
Dear Parents / Carers,
In the last couple of weeks we have seen quite a few visitors to school. These have included parents of prospective new starters for Reception in September 2020, school governors and trustees from the Academy Trust who oversee the school. The view of all of these varied visitors has been overwhelmingly positive with the classes being described as 'purposeful', 'calm' and 'friendly'. I have been proud to show visitors our school and the people in it that make it such a great place to learn.
Next week, we have the first of our Nativity performances. We now have several children in school who, for whatever reasons, have refused permission for video or photographs. As a school it is right that we respect their wishes and therefore we will no longer be allowing parents to record performances. You will however have time after the show to photograph your own child in their costumes. I ask that you please support us in this in order to protect our pupils.
Have a lovely weekend
Mrs Karen Williams
