Spring Fayre and Plant Sale – Saturday 13th May. 10am -12.30pm

It’s our annual Spring Fayre and Plant Sale on Saturday 13th May and we need your help to make it a success.
Could you please donate home baking and sweet treats for us to serve with tea and coffee and to sell at our Cake and Candy stall?
All donations will gladly be accepted in the school no earlier than Friday 12th May. (please label tins and tubs with child’s name and class if you want them returned)
We also need items for our Tombola stall and to make up hampers for the raffle – so clear out those cupboards in search of unwanted gifts and good quality items such as toys, books, stationery, sweeties, bubble bath, candles, wine, chocolate etc.
Please hand these items into the school from Monday 8th May.

Thank you for all the support you continue to give to us and to the school.
Many thanks from your Parent Council.

HMIe Inspection

St. John’s will play host to an HMIe Inspection team for the week beginning 8th May. The Inspectors will have the opportunity to see all the good things happening in our school community, as well as offering advice on how we can improve even further.

We are keen that you are part of our Inspection week and invite you to call the school if you can be part of these groups.
There is also an online Questionnaire for Parents/Carers. We would be delighted if you could complete these.
The link to the Questionnaire is,
