Early Reading Information Evening

It was lovely to see so many of you at the reading information evening last night.  We are looking forward to implementing the scheme fully from 27th February.  It represents a significant change in our approach to early reading and to the books you will see coming home each week.  We will hold further information evenings, specific to year groups, early in the summer term to discuss any issues, and talk in more detail about the scheme and approach in your child’s year group. 


  • School is closed to children next Friday (17th February) and reopens after the half term break on Monday 27th
  • PTA Quiz Night is taking place tonight at Wedgwood Cricket Club.


A list of which clubs will run in the next half term will be sent out next week.


With best wishes,

Mr J Gordon
