Newsletter 28th September 2018

Dear parents and carers,

Harvest Festival

Do join us for Harvest Festival at 2.00pm in the church on Friday 5th October.  The children will be presenting songs, poetry and art as a celebration of harvest.  We shall be going across to the church for a practice on Thursday 4th and will take the gifts to decorate the church, so we would be grateful for any donations of non-perishable food (no baked beans please!) by then; these will be passed to the Bicester Foodbank.

Secondary School Applications

Parents of children in Year 6 should note that applications for secondary school are now open.  Please apply through: www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/secondaryadmissions by 31st October.
