What a fantastic SPORTS DAY we had (and the sun shone!) - Thank you all for your wonderful support

Have a wonderful half term too - We are 'back in business' for the Summer Term on Monday 3rd June

Congratulations go to Sarah Kitcher who now represents our families, along with Tor Price as your Parent/Carer Governor

Finally, please also be aware that the consultation period in relation to the Review around SEND provision in the City is approaching. There is a really useful summary report of the SEND findings in the City at www.southampton.gov.uk/localoffer . It is a really important issue and therefore, it would be massively appreciated if you could get involved with the consultation and put your views across, once the proposals are available and fully formed.
