Snippets –

18th May 2018:

We are currently improving the outdoor environment for the children. We have exciting plans for the playgrounds and have a very keen Gardening Club who are planting, weeding and making the garden areas attractive.

We are very grateful to FRANK’S CARPETS AT WESTERHOPE, who kindly donated a large roll of imitation grass for our ‘Fairy Garden’.

Karate, Cricket and Gary Ives after school clubs will finish next week and resume after half term. Please note Gary Ives does not resume until 14th JUNE.

Please find attached application forms for the clubs and a copy of the letter which will be sent out soon with details of a trip to Matfen Woods for Year One:

School will close at the usual time on Friday 25th May for the half term holiday and reopen on Monday 4th June.

We would like to thank you for all your support during what has been an exciting term with our visit from The Archbishop of York yet a  difficult term due to the inclement weather.

Easter Holiday Club

St Andrew’s Out of School Club are proposing to run a Holidays Club in the Easter holidays.

The Club would run for two to three days during  week beginning 10th April.  The cost would be £25 per child per day. The hours would be 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. The children would need to bring a packed lunch.

We would need a minimum of 10 children to make this viable.  If enough parents are interested we may run the Club for the whole week.

If you require any further information, please see Heidi or Suzanne
