Dear Parent/Carer


We are beginning the process to appoint a new Parent Governor by the end of June. To find out more and download the relevant forms please visit the school website on the important information tab and then Governors. At the top of the area click and download.

You have probably all heard of GDPR – the General Data Protection Regulation - that comes into effect on 25 May 2018. For those that haven’t, the GDPR is an EU Regulation regarding the collection, storage and processing of personal data. All organisations within EU member states will have to comply with GDPR. Whilst Leasingham St. Andrew’s School has always handled data in line with the 8 principles of the Data Protection Act 1998, it has taken some steps in preparation for GDPR. We have published our Privacy Statement on the school website under the important information tab. We will also be updating consent shortly for the key areas of school life.

I am most concerned that we have cars dropping off in the safety zone and also parking in dangerous places especially around the bend heading towards the Church. I have asked the Community Police to attend school to monitor the situation. It is really important that we adhere to the parking regulations around school to ensure that all members of our school community are safe when arriving and leaving school. Also, please be aware of speed around the vicinity of school and in St. John’s as this has also been mentioned as a danger.

Thank you! We now have nearly all the ‘Sponsored Spell’ money in and can reveal we have a total of £1306.71 which we will use to develop our outdoor play and learning space. That’s a fantastic total and thank you for your support it is much appreciated.

On Friday 25th May you are invited to join us for our Celebration Assembly at 10.00 a.m. to see the children sharing some of their class work.

Finally, have a safe and happy half term with the children returning on Monday 4th June for the final Summer Term.

Yours sincerely


Mr D W Hodgson
