All Weather Parenting

Being a parent can be at times very stressful and challenging. Knowing how to cope with your child when they are being difficult is not always easy. If you would like to attend a course that will support and guide you as well as de-stress you please phone 296467. The course starts on Tuesday 27th September at the Tarner Children’s Centre from 10.00 –12.00. You can pick up a leaflet for more info from the Parents notice board in school.

Labour Party Conference update

The police are keeping me up to date on the conference arrangements and so far everything seems to be fine and we shall carry on as normal. In the highly unlikely event that we are asked to evacuate the building arrangements have been made for us to assemble at the Komedia in Gardner Street. From there we will phone parents to arrange for children to be collected and taken home. Local radio will keep you up to date with conference events and any potential difficulties that may occur.

Mad Hat Day

We will be holding a sponsored Mad Hat Day on Friday 21st October. More information will follow but I thought you might like to start thinking about just how mad you want your Mad Hat to be. All money raised will go to the Monsoon Trust
