Welcome Mrs Atkinson.

We are delighted that children enjoyed meeting their new teacher this week and are getting ready to move up in September. It was nice that Mrs Atkinson was able to be with us for the day, and we all look forward to working with her in September

Welcome Miss O'Brien.

Community Speed Watch - Can you help?

I’m going to be taking over and leading the Community Speed Watch in Monk Fryston. This is a volunteer-led initiative to deter speeding motorists. Volunteering needn’t be a big commitment. Volunteers only have to give whatever time they’re able to give. If any fellow parents would be interested in volunteering to help run the Community Speed Watch, they can contact me via Facebook or at Initially, I just need a few volunteers (no longer term commitment required!) to be trained on the equipment and see what we can do.
Best wishes, Matt
