Newsletter 16th December 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am extremely proud of the whole school community for such a great team effort this term.

We are looking forward to the start of Spring Term 2022 but also looking forward to our Christmas holidays. A chance for us all to rest and recharge.

Thank you to the staff for always going the extra mile. They really are amazing.

Friends of School

Thank you to our Friends of School who have done an excellent job in raising money for all of the children. The raffle raised £382! Thank you to the parents who sold tickets, with Santa, in all weathers. We appreciate it. And thank you to the families who bought tickets.

Community fridges, Christmas food, wellbeing cafes etc

We all know that food costs are rising rapidly and as a result, many families are really struggling. Our colleagues at Norwich City Council and The Feed, have put together a list of providers offering free or pay-what-you-can meals and food services for people in the Norwich area. I have attached the list below.

Please note that we do not endorse any of the services included on this list, so please use of these services is at your own discretion. We do not in any way verify the quality or availability of the services listed. Before visiting any of the providers, we recommend contacting them to check they are open.
