Big Congratulations to two of our amazing staff members. Miss Tomlinson got married over half term and she is now Mrs Stones in school and Miss Lee got engaged to her lovely boyfriend. We are so happy for both of these lovely ladies.
Just before half term the Governors held interviews for the roles of Assistant Headteacher and Permanent Class Teacher. It is with great pleasure and excitement that we are letting you know the Mrs Goodwin and Miss Garnett are our new Assistant Headteachers and Miss Lee is now a permanent teacher in school.

New School Showerproof Bookbags
We are introducing new showerproof bookbags in school. These can be purchased at the Uniform & Leisure Shop in Lancaster at a price of £6.99.
All Infants will be presented with a new showerproof bookbag as from September in the hope that in inclement weather the reading books inside will be better protected. We will no longer be using the current fabric book bags so please discard of it or use it for personal at home.
