School Newsletter – Friday 15th September 2017

Dear Parents,

Everyone has settled in well to the new school year. We welcomed a number of new children across school and in reception as well as Mrs Gumbley who has joined the staff team in Reception. Congratulations to Miss Black who got married over the holidays and is now Mrs Whittaker.

The roofing work on the school continues and we are working closely with the contractors and Rochdale Council School Safety Team to ensure the children and staff are kept safe during the works.

On Friday 22nd September we are having our Harvest Service at Church, we are not asking for any donations of food for this service as we will have a Harvest collection in school at the end of the half term. Parents are welcome to join us at St James Calderbrook at 10am for the service.

Maple Class are currently taking part in an outdoor programme called British Tribe, please ensure that your children have their full change of clothes in school every Tuesday.

On Friday 22nd we will be holding the PFA (Parents Friends Association) Annual General Meeting at 3.30pm in school. All are welcome to attend.

Thank you to all parents who have returned contact and permission forms, if you have not already done so please send them back on Monday.

Thank you

Mr. R. Walthall
