Spring term news

Dear Parents and Carers

I do hope you are looking forwards to the Easter break.


The new building will be completed during the holiday period. Our new Rabbit class will start at school on Tuesday 26th April. For everyone else, we start back on Monday 25th April. The gate in Zeus Lane will continue to be used for Rabbit, Robin, Owl, Deer and Otter classes and you will find a new path across to the front entrance of the school.


It is with some sadness that I need to let you know that Colin Garner, one of our minibus drivers died during March. He had been quite unwell since contracting Covid in January 2021. His funeral is on Tuesday 12th April at Portchester Crematorium (midday). The family would like to welcome anyone who would like to attend to celebrate Colin's life. He was such a gentle, helpful and always cheerful member of our school community. He will be missed by everyone. In the summer term, we will celebrate Colin's life with our pupils in an appropriate way. 


Please keep checking our website for updates. There is lots of information in our Parents area - courses, term dates and a link to Gill our home school link worker.


We are planning some family events for the summer term - so that you can come in and do activities with your child in school. Remember to check your parent mail and text messages for updates.


Have a happy holiday


Kind regards

Mrs Le Roux
