Dear Parents and Carers

We are now at the end of the Spring Term and the Easter holidays are about to start.  Children and staff are tired but with so many lovely memories to take with them into the holidays. The learning has been fun, outdoors, indoors and memorable. We look forward to Sports Days in the Summer Term, when parents can attend.

We wish you all a Happy Easter and peaceful Eid.

Some Lovely News

Our local church recently held a book sale and have gifted the school a very generous £150 to be used to buy some additional books for your children to use in school. You can be assured that this will be put to good use. Thanks very much to St. Mary Magdalene Church.

Thank you to the staff

This term hasn’t been easy as we have continued to manage with fewer staff than we would like due to Covid, illness and other reasons. Staff have stepped up and been very adaptable covering classes and responding to where the need is within school. The staff at Mousehold always go the extra mile for your children. I wish them a well-deserved break over Easter.
