Thank you to everyone in our wonderful school community for your generous harvest donations this year. Despite the wet and miserable weather last week, many of you brought bags and boxes of gifts to our harvest tables at the front of school. Your kind support will be greatly appreciated by everyone at the Wyke Food Bank and all the families that they support. On behalf of them, THANK YOU!
Although we are unable to do our usual harvest type celebration, Rev Jane Dixon from Lower Wyke Moravian Church has recorded a special service for us to enjoy in school. If you follow this link, you can share it at home too.
I hope that you, your family and loved ones are safe and well during this difficult time.
For more information about how we are keeping our children safe in school, please visit the newsletter section of the Parents tab where you will find our risk assessment and latest communication with parents.
