Sports Day - new date
With forecasts of heavy rain all day, we have taken the decision to postpone this year's Sports Day until Thursday, June 27. Obviously, there is a great deal of planning goes into this event and with all the various activities lined up and we constantly monitor the weather especially as we are spending a full day and picnic on the school field. This year - apart from persistent rain on Wednesday itself - the weather looks glorious. Typical. I appreciate that many of you have taken time off work and made arrangements to spend the day with us - but I would rather let you know in good time, than cancel on the morning itself, so alternative arrangements can be put in place in good time.
We value good relations with our neighbours on Torver Crescent, so I would politely remind parents/carers to consider others when parking at various drop-off and collect times. Parking across drives, for example, makes it extremely for people to actually get in and out of their homes and I have had at least one conversation with a pregnant neighbour who is finding it extremely difficult to get access to her own driveway at 3.15pm and 4.30pm, leaving her with no alternative but to park some distance away. Please consider others when dropping off. Or "park and stride", leaving the car slightly further away and then walking in with your child. Thank you.
