Important Dates for Autumn Term

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn Term. I hope you enjoyed the Autumn break and made the most of the mild weather we experienced. This is a long half term and as usual there are lots of key events.  With this in mind I would like to share with you a checklist of important dates which may help you organise your family diary. Please be aware that further details for each event will be shared nearer the time.

Tuesday 10th January return to school for the start of Spring term

Rehearsals are now underway for the school Christmas pantomime and are expected to take place during the school day.  If there are any practices outside the normal school hours, the relevant staff will contact you.

Following on from our previous correspondence regarding Wellfield’s commitment to improving attendance, I am happy to announce that Class 7W had the best attendance the previous week and they are therefore given the honour of coming to school in ‘non-uniform’ this Friday.  Well done 7W! In the future we will send a text out each Friday to confirm the winning class for the following week and the day that they will be allowed to wear non uniform so that it does not clash with their PE day..

Please contact the school if you have any further queries.

Kindest regards

Susan Winter
