Good News!

You may have noticed that Mrs Jones is looking a little plumper recently. She won’t be joining weight-watchers because that bump is a baby bump! Yes, Mrs Jones is expecting a baby which is due to arrive at the end of January. Hooray! We are currently in the process of organising an acting deputy/Senco to take over at the beginning of the Spring term. I will keep you updated as the situation is gradually sorted and, as always, we will have the best interests of your children at heart.
