Finally, to conclude with some old chestnuts; with dark, cold and wet mornings a feature of Winter, I wish to re-iterate that children should not be left unsupervised outside the school gates before our morning opening time of 9.10pm , and I request that no cars use the staff/bus car-park in the mornings and at 2 and 3pm pick-up times.

Yours sincerely,

John Devenney.
