CONGESTION ON THE PATH AT THE END OF THE SCHOOL DAY

I apologise for the difficulties some of you have experienced on the new path at the end of the day. I know it is a tight squeeze at the moment especially with push chairs. I will ask the builders to move the orange fence back so that the two ‘lay-bys’ are useable which should help a bit. Once the old path is reinstated leading straight up from the gate, congestion shouldn’t be an issue. That should be by February half –term so we will have to try to manage until then. Thanks for your patience!

 

POPPY APPEAL 2016

Year 6 children will be on the gate in the morning after the half-term break and in the playground at the end of the day, taking donations for poppies.
