Thursday 2 July Sports Day! Juniors (9.30 – 11.30 am) and Infants (1.30 – 2.30 pm). Children can come to school in their PE kits. Please provide a sun hat for your child to wear. Staff will be selling hot and cold drinks for spectators. School will provide water and a snack for all the children taking part. Based on the weather forecast, we will take a decision by 8.30am on the day if the event can go ahead.

Head Lice – ONCE A WEEK TAKE A PEEK
Please can I ask that all parents and carers check their children’s hair for head lice every week. Unless every parent takes this problem seriously and checks their child’s hair then head lice will continue to spread quickly between the children and understandably this is very frustrating for parents. Using conditioner and a fine comb is a good way of removing any lice (avoiding harsh chemical treatments) and we still have some specially designed kits available free in school for this purpose. Please call in and ask Miss Gregory for a kit if this will help. Please can all girls come to school with their hair tied back as this will help in preventing a spread. Please help us to minimize this problem in school.
