Mortimer Primary School
Excellence for all
End of term – 8.4.22
Dear all,
We have reached the end of spring term and said goodbye to Miss Smith…even the mayor turned up to wish her well!
The school has been lit with yellow today in aid of our Sunshine Friday. Thank you to everyone who has donated via Parent Pay.
We hope that you have a lovely break and enjoy some yummy eggs! 
Just a few things to bring to your attention.
1. Leave of absence/Holiday Requests
Following an increase in the number of parents requesting a Leave of Absence for holidays may we please remind you that at Mortimer Primary School we follow both the Government and Local Authorities’ guidelines and are unable to grant a leave of absence for the purpose of a family holiday during term time.  This may lead to a Penalty Notice being issued. Having a ‘good’ attendance will not be considered as justification. Leave of absence can only be authorised in EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES and agreed by the Headteacher. Thank you for your understanding.
2. Milk
If your child would like milk in the Summer term please make payment via parent pay before Tuesday 26th April.  Payments after that date WILL NOT be accepted.
3. Lunch orders
Please ensure bookings are made by Wednesday 20th April for the first week back.
4. Year 6 pupils going to Harton Academy in September
