Many thanks
1. Funerama

On Friday 15th July we will be running our Funerama spectacular event!

This will run straight after school with raffles, books, preloved items, games to play, hot dogs, sweet treats, drinks and punch balloons!

We ask that parents collect all of their children and then enter via the KS1 yard. The KS2 gate will be exit only. On entering the KS1 yard, follow around the back of school, past the trim trail and onto the top of the KS2 yard. There is no entry fee this year, but we would appreciate children having change at hand.

Many of our year 6 children will be on transition but are warmly welcomed to attend.

PARENT REQUEST – we kindly ask for any donations of toys, children’s books, bric-a-brac and shop bought pre wrapped cakes for us to sell. Please bring any donations to the school office and a huge thank you in advance.

2. School and Facebook

We would like to update you all on the Facebook group titled – Mortimer Primary Parents Group. The group is an unofficial group with no links or ties to the school. The administrators have kindly responded to our request to ensure there is no confusion in being linked to the school and we appreciate the changes made. We do have a Facebook presence, but have moved our communications to being direct to parents via email, texts and via our website. We remove commenting options from our Facebook posts, as we do not monitor the account. We are always willing to speak to parents and carers about any concerns or queries you may have. We believe we are extremely approachable and want to work with parents to better their child’s experience and education with us.

You can contact us directly by:

o   Speaking to your child’s class teacher at the end of a day.

4. KS2 Sports Day

Years 3 to 6 will take part in their summer sports day on the morning of Wednesday 13th July.
