Dear Parents and Carers,

I want to start this week’s newsletter by thanking you all for your support and kindness after such a worrying incident after school last Friday. The North Town community were brilliant and so supportive. We have had so many parents and carers asking after the pupil and family and it has been much appreciated. I have had correspondence with Cllr Caroline Ellis about this situation and will continue to push for change to ensure our school community can cross the road safely when arriving at and leaving North Town. Our local PCSO was made aware of this incident and has increased his presence around the school these past days.

A huge well done to all the children for their fabulous vocabulary costumes! They all looked amazing and really enjoyed the day!

Mr Braund
