Premises Day 2019

On a Saturday in June, 23 parents arrived at school to support a grand clear-up and general maintenance ‘day’. Areas were tidied, painted, plumbed, cut back, cleaned and made safe. There were also around 10 children who  mucked in. We progressed quickly and were able to tackle many additional jobs not on the list (I had anticipated 7 in total, so the soup didn’t go quite as far as intended! ) Wotton Farm Shop and Kitt’s Green nursery also supported with the donation of plants to help us look fresh.The school looks superb, and I am very grateful.

Mr Batchelor.
