12 July 2018


Dear Parent/Carer,

The children have their new teacher on Wednesday afternoon ready for the new year and all had a positive experience, I hope.  Mrs Whalen is working through uniform orders and these will be ready to collect from Wednesday 18th July from the front office.

This afternoon you will be able to order meals on Wisepay for the first two weeks of next term 4-7 and 10-14 September.  The cut-off date for placing orders for both weeks is 9 AM MONDAY 16 JULY, this is to enable numbers to be sent to our providers before the end of term.  As we have a long summer break, please remember to keep a note of your order. 

A reminder for parents/carers of those children who are currently in Year 2 and will be moving into Yr 3 in September.  Unfortunately, Universal Free School Meals do not apply to children above Yr 2.  If you still wish your child to stay, please follow the online instructions which will ask for payment and will not accept the order unless payment is made.  If you have any difficulties in placing your order, please let Mrs Whalen in the office know.

Don’t forget that Friday 13th July is the PTFA Summer Fayre and the children have the option of coming to school in non-uniform. The Summer Fayre will commence at 3.15p.m. with a range of events and stalls on the school field.

As this is the last letter of the year, I would like to wish all of those children who are leaving us every success in their new schools. It would be good to see as many of you as possible at ‘The Leavers Assembly’ at St Andrew’s Church on Friday 20th July, commencing at 2.00p.m.

I would like to say a massive thank you to the staff of St Andrew’s for all of their hard work this year. The school continues to have very positive outcomes and we can be very proud of our achievements. I would like to thank Mrs Robinson for all her commitments to the children and school over a number of years. She has been a pleasure to have in school and although not completely finishing it is important to celebrate and say thank you and I am sure we will still see her in school in the new year.

Finally, I would like to wish you a safe and happy summer and look forward to seeing the children return on September 4th.

Yours sincerely,


Mr D W Hodgson
