Dear parents and carers

Road works on Bates Lane! UPDATE!

We have received further notification of resurfacing works on Bates Lane this Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th May. Please do not drive or park on Bates Lane. Parking for drop off and pick up will be available on Chester road. Alternatively, please use the car park at St Paul’s church and walk up. Thanks very much for your cooperation. 

Assembly – Graeme Green

We are delighted that Graeme Green, vicar at St. Paul’s church, will be leading our assembly on Friday this week. It will be lovely to have Graeme back in school again and I am sure that the children will be eager to hear another of his wonderful stories. Hopefully another sign of things getting back to the ‘new’ normal! Three classes will join Graeme in the hall with everyone else watching virtually as usual.
