Dear Parents and Carers of St George’s,

Christmas Lunch

The Christmas Lunch was absolutely delicious this year, as always. Our kitchen team have really surpassed themselves and provided us all with a veritable feast of delicious turkey with all of the trimmings. Thank you to everyone who made the Christmas Lunch such a success.

 Christmas Fair

Thank you again to everyone who was able to donate and join us at the Christmas Fair. We raised just over £300 for our School Fund which is just brilliant!

 Christmas Productions

Our Christmas productions this year have been outstanding. We are so proud of each and every one of our children from Nursery through to Year 6. They have shared their talents with us willingly and it has been a privilege to see them so full of joy and so confident during the performances. Thank you to all of our families for joining us to watch the children perform.


Polite Reminder - Poverty Proofing the School Day – No Gifts for Staff Policy

As you know, we are no longer accepting gifts into school from our children and families. Any gifts which are sent into school will be donated to local charity shops. Thank you for the lovely cards, emails and messages we have received so far – we really appreciate them.

Can I take this opportunity to thank the whole community again for making Mrs Clarke and I so welcome. The children of St George’s are an absolute credit to their families and our school and we could not be prouder of them.

 On behalf of all of the governors, staff and children of St George’s, I wish every member of our school community a happy and holy Christmas.

 Mrs Anne Bullerwell
