Parents with children in Y5
As part of the way we wish to be able to work in a close partnership with parents, Mrs Mortimer will be holding a short follow-up induction meeting on Thursday 11th September at 7.00 p.m. for families who have just joined Y5. This will be an opportunity to meet class teachers, see classrooms, clear up any misunderstandings and re-iterate the organisation of the year. The kitchen manager will also be bringing an exhibition of typical school meals. I am told that sampling may be possible!
