Newsletter – Friday 14th July

Good evening,

This evening, you will find school reports in bags. Having read every child’s report, I am really impressed by the mature learning behaviours and fantastic progress that every child has made. You should all be really proud of them – I certainly am!

Listening to Eagle class play on Wednesday night, one of their songs was called ‘I’m not average!’ Longnor students are far from average: they each have incredible talents that we celebrate each day through the extra-curricular activities and work we complete in school.

Thank you for your support in the alteration of events this week. The weather has been changeable and we have tried to make the call early to give plenty of notice. We hope to run the Lawley walk for Merlin class on Monday and our sports day on Thursday next week.

In the meantime, have a lovely weekend.

All the best.

Mrs L. Edgerton

Eagles Play

Congratulations to Eagles class for their wonderful performance of The X-Factory on Wednesday night.

Thank you to Ms Mullock and Mrs Hall for all their hard work on the play.
