Health, Safety and Security: Keeping our Gates Closed I’m really pleased with our Governors’ investment in security at PG but low security breaches (including leaving gates open) is in focus at the moment. Please help us keep our site (and your children) secure by closing our gates behind you if you leave the site after 9am (…but please be careful and watch your fingers!). The gates are open until 9am obviously but Mr. Cannon then goes round to close everything soon after 9am. The green gate by the front infant entrance is sometimes left open (sometimes by delivery people too!) so if you are one of the last to leave, please close it behind you (…carefully! Fingers!). Many thanks!
Spelling Bee Event Weel dun two all are Speling Beees! I hope you spotted all six of my spelling mistakes there …packed into such a short sentence! I bet you checked back to count them too! Ha! Thanks to Mr. T for leading this brilliant development. Well done to everyone but special praise goes to our winners: Cooper Barber (Y1); Leanna Thomas (Y4); and Josh Clark (Y5). Spelling Bees are cool! Brilliant performance and good luck in the final!

PG Appeals – New Appeal for Gardening Tools Thank you for the jigsaws and the LEGO but we still need more if possible – especially LEGO. We haven’t got enough LEGO to run our club yet so please have a look and send it in if it is no longer needed in your play boxes. Thanks! And we also need any unwanted gardening tools please. Our grounds are being developed as part of our curriculum offer and we need a bit more gardening kit – so please help us if you can. Thank you!

Mrs. Tyrer - Well done to Mrs. Tyrer for completing her first full term at PG today. She does a great job for us as she continues to champion the needs of all our children …and she brings great cakes in too! She has got to know all our children and many families and we’re delighted she’s with us at PG. Keep up the good work Mrs. Tyrer!
