Dear Parents and Carers,

A huge thank you to all the parents and carers who were able to attend the phonics lessons at North Town throughout the week. It was lovely to see so many of you at North Town and we really appreciated your kind feedback. I know the children were really excited to have you join the lessons. Thank you to Mrs Richards and the staff for making this opportunity possible.

Have a smashing weekend everyone.

Councillor John Hunt

Councillor John Hunt kindly visited North Town on Wednesday to join me on the main road to observe the busy end to the school day. We are continuing to push for a better crossing and more visible signs encouraging motorists to reduce their speed.

North Town Nursery

Earlier in the week I wrote to the Nursery parents and carers with the wonderful news that Shelby Norman is expecting her first baby in July. We are all absolutely thrilled for her and her family. We were absolutely delighted when Shelby returned to North Town and became our nursery manager. She has a brilliant team of staff around her and we are pleased to announce that Kirstie Porter will stepping up to acting manager from mid June and that Rebecca Hawley will be acting deputy manager. The North Town Nursery staff are a smashing team and will continue to provide an excellent experience for all children that attend.
