Headteacher Bulletin 27/09/19


Dear parents, carers and children,

Please look out for a Medical Conditions letter (being emailed and also sent out on paper) as we are currently ensuring that we have up to date medical information for all children.  Please return this letter whether or not your child(ren) have a medical condition.

I need to update you about the planned Term Dates for 2020-21.  I believed that they were going to be published soon but I have now been informed that they will not be published until South Dartmoor has joined a new Trust.  This is because our dates will need to tally with the new Trust and, if we were to publish now, they may be subject to change in the future so this would cause more confusion and difficulties for families.

Thank you to our FOMs team who made Theatre Alibi’s performance of ‘I Believe in Unicorns’ possible on Wednesday.  I hope your children enjoyed it.

Well done to Ted C, Ted G, Tilly, Oriana, Jules and William who represented the school at a year 1/2 4-a-side football match on Thursday.  They won 3; drew 2; lost 2. To see more of what the children have been up to this week please follow this Facebook link as every class will have some news for you:


OPEN MORNING             

Our pre-school, Little Tors, will be holding an Open Morning on Friday 4th October, from 9.15 to 12 noon.  If you know anyone with children who may like to join pre-school please do spread the word.  We will also welcome any parents of children of older children to come and have a look around too.
