School Newsletter 8 – 2018/19

Dear Parents/ Carers

 

We have reviewed a number of policies this term and I wanted to draw your attention to the updated website. This has on an updated version of the Behaviour policy and also the Equal Opportunities policies.

 

Singing Assembly
Miss Kitson has re-arranged the Singing Assembly for Thursday 11th April. This will start at 9:15 am once the children are registered.

 

School Bus Service
As you are aware, the school bus service, S18, is under threat from September. We are still in negotiations with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and will keep you updated.

 

What can you do to help?

 

Consider if you could use the bus service to increase numbers and help to make it cost effective.

 

Contact your MP – Mary Creagh

 

The WYCA consultation and engagement website is now open but closes 15th March 2019, giving all interested parties the opportunity to comment on the proposals.
