Dear parents/ carers,

What a great end to the week we had with so much yellow around the school in connection with World Mental Health Day!  Everyone really embraced the yellow theme and the children were involved in some wonderful activities that Mrs Cowell has kindly collated together, which is attached to this newsletter.

Design a Christmas Card project with Prontaprint Bishops Stortford: you should have received your child’s design home now.  A reminder that all orders need to be returned directly to your child’s class.  If you would like additional forms, just let your class teacher know.

A reminder for Year 6: A reminder that If your child is in year 6, you can apply for a secondary school (year 7) place between 11 September 2020 and 31 October 2020.

More information can be found here: https://www.essex.gov.uk/apply-for-a-secondary-school-place

Student Update Forms: Thank you to those of you that have already returned your student update forms, if you haven’t, could I ask that you return them to us as soon as possible so we can ensure we have up to date contact information for you.
