School Newsletter March 9th

Dear Parents and Carers

Thank you for your support with what has been an unpredictable week. It is never easy deciding to close a school for snow and we do

everything we can to stay open – but when you get the Ofsted call on top of that, it makes things more interesting! We have deferred the inspection and can expect them to return as soon as an inspection team is available.

It was good to see such a good turn out at parents evening on Tuesday. If you did not complete a questionnaire on the night, it will have been sent home for you to complete and return.

Finally, if you need help registering with Eezeetrip, please let us know.

Parents who have filled the questionnaire in so far have largely expressed a preference for this as the best means of communication.

Have a good weekend and hopefully it will warm up now.

Best wishes

Dear Parents/Carers

The Secondary site will be open on Tuesday 6th March.

The heating is now working and the burst pipes have now been fixed!

Best wishes,


PS This is how one US school announced their Snow Day….  




World Book Day!

All the pupils at Mabel Prichard celebrated world book day on 1st March 2018. Each pupil was invited to dress up a favourite book character. We had some very creative outfits including Mario, Dennis the Menace, Mr. Stink, Aunt Spiker, Minnie Mouse, a witch, skeleton and many more. We enjoyed sharing our thoughts about our favourite books and listening to different stories




Dear Parents and Carers

Please note that the School will be closed today from 12.30pm.

Please check the website and local radio stations for an update for tomorrow Friday 2nd March.


Snow update – school open today

Dear Parents and Carers

We are currently open but are watching the weather and talking to transport. The forecast is for heavier snow at some point later today and for this reason we may have to close early to ensure the students get home safely. If you are not going to be at home, please can you let the school office know and we can contact you first should we need to close early.

Due to the weather, Ofsted have deferred their inspection.

I will keep posting updates.

Best wishes
