Dear Parents / Carers
We hope that Year 4 enjoyed their visit to the fascinating Neasden Temple on Tuesday and that Year 3 enjoyed an exciting, although tiring, day at PACCAR yesterday. Thank you to staff for organising these trips and to the parents who helped on the day
Thank you to CSG Village library for opening specially for our Year 3 and Year 4 children to visit this week so that they could explore the library and borrow some library books.
School uniform we have had a slight change to the school uniform policy. Summer Term Uniform - summer dresses may be worn and ties do not need to be worn in the summer term
SEN Meetings for children on SEN Support - The Parent-Teacher SEN meetings for the Summer term will be taking place w/c 10th July.  Targets sheets will be sent home the week before for parents/carers to read and review.  Attending the summer meetings will be current class teachers and teachers for next academic year.  Please look out for an email from Mrs Bannister with more information soon.

Dangers of Open Water Swimming - Please take a moment to view the video below produced by Bucks Council, the Fire & Rescue Service and Thames Valley Police - and pass it on to friends and family members. Even if you are unlikely to try open water swimming yourself, the video includes advice for the public on helping anyone who gets into difficulties when doing so. Many thanks.
