A huge thank you to everyone who filled in the Induction Questionnaire last term. Every year we take on board ideas and suggestions from parents to improve Fitzmaurice’s Induction process. Following this year’s comments we are looking at creating helpful checklists for parents to go into Induction Packs and adding more photos and explanation about what your child might do in an average day to the Induction Night slide show. I hope you all still have your raffle tickets….(drumroll)….Congratulations number 4! Present your raffle ticket to Miss Howlin or Miss Shergold to collect your prize!


We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who made/brought cakes to our cake sale last week.


We made an amazing £113!!! We would also like to say a special thank you to our class reps, Sam and Jenny for organising everything involved in the cake sale.


We will let you know what great, new resources we buy with the money.
