Thank you so much for your support of the Royal Wedding celebrations at school.
The children had a wonderful time at the street party and the wedding was beautiful!

Trip to London
Plans are completed for our whole school trip to London next week and we are all looking forward to a fabulous day. Please could any outstanding monies be paid into the office as soon as possible.
We are really pleased to inform you that we have a new site supervisor at school.
Helen Fagen who has worked at Harlestone for some time, is now site supervisor across the two schools and the cleaning is being undertaken by a new company. The improvement in the cleanliness of the school is marked. This arrangement has also saved Brington a great deal of money which is very important in these extremely difficult financial times.
If you have queries or concerns about your child or classroom based issues please see the classteacher in the first instance. Mrs Fagen will be in school every morning, usually in the office, and will be available to take messages and deal with enquiries. The Business Manager, Hayley Richardson, from Harlestone is spending some time at Brington every week and is managing the finances. Hayley is putting in new procedures to get the two schools in line with each other and hopefully you will reap the benefits of these changes.
Helen will endeavour to answer the phone during the mornings and the answer machine will be regularly checked for messages, but please do feel free to ring Hayley or Pauline at Harlestone on 01604 842391 if you cannot get through. We thank you for your support and understanding during this time.
Exciting Partnership News
A message from the Governors;
The Big Safety Day + Big Weather
By now you should have received your invitation to the Big Safety Day on Friday 27th May.
The children from both schools are very excited and we do hope you will be able to join us for part of the day.
Hopefully we are due to get some warmer weather during this term and would remind you that we ask the children to have a sun hat and water bottle in school. (We have a supply of water bottles in school at a cost of £2.00)
We also recommend that the children come to school with a long lasting sun cream already applied.
