Friday 10th March

Good afternoon,

Thank you to the whole Longnor community for your support and patience this week with the bad weather and school having to close. It is always such a tricky decision. We hope that it hasn’t been too much of an inconvenience and we all hope to return to normal school opening hours on Monday.

Even though we have had a short week, there has been much to celebrate. Well done to all for your sports, computing and mathematics achievements this week.

Thank you to Grace and Florence for your snowy photo:

I hope you all have a safe and restful weekend.

All the best.

Mrs L. Edgerton

Basketball teams

Congratulations to the basketball teams on reaching the finals for South Shropshire. Both teams played incredibly well and improved throughout the tournament. Good luck on Tuesday in the finals!
