Library – Mrs Saunders is looking for parent helpers to work with our junior librarians at lunchtimes so that children can borrow and return books from our school library. If you are able to spare an hour (12.30 – 1.30) on a regular basis once a week, please contact the school office. Many thanks.


Y3/4 Swimming lessons – swimming for years 3 & 4 will start on Wednesday 23rd September. Please ensure your child has their kit in school on this day. Each class will also need parents to help walk the children to and from the swimming pool. So far we have had very little response for Dove and Swift classes.  If you are able to help, please see your child’s class teacher ASAP. We also have swimming hats available from the school office for £1 each.

If you are able to help with walking to and from St. Laurence please let your child’s class teacher know.
