Dear Parents, Carers and Governors

Last week’s busking was a great success; we had performers all over the playground demonstrating their talents. We raised £134.83 which will be donated to a creative arts charity decided by School Council next week.

Academy Status
I am pleased to say that last night Governors made the decision to apply for Academy status for the school and to join the River Learning Trust. We discussed the outcome of the consultation process and considered all the questions that were raised and agreed that pursuing academy status was in the best interest of our school. Minutes of the consultation meeting will be on the website from today under the Governors section. The application will be sent to the DfE within the next few days and the process takes approximately 5 months to convert. I will keep you posted of events as they happen.

Open Afternoon Monday
We are holding an open afternoon on Monday between 3.00pm and 4.00pm to showcase the work the children did on creative arts week. Please do join us to look in all the classrooms, including Springfield (please note Springfield do not finish until 3.15pm so entry to their classrooms will be after this time). Tennis and Indoor Games Clubs will carry on as normal and children are more than welcome to bring their parents round at pick up time.

Quiz Night
The PTA are looking for teams to enter the quiz night on Friday 17th March. Please get your entries in by Wednesday of next week. The last two years have been a great success and a very enjoyable occasion.
Year 2 Concert
All Year 2 children are expected to attend the Year 2 concert at Wood Green on 14th March. It is a wonderful occasion where the children get to work with children from other primary schools and to represent our school. If there are circumstances that prevent your child form attending please could you let the class teacher know.
