DOOR SECURITY

The new door security system has been in place for some months now, but can I please remind everyone that the centre door at the front of school is the main entrance and all pupils and visitors must enter the building there.  It has come to my attention that staff and pupils are opening other doors and allowing people into the building. This is not acceptable and breaches our security procedures.

BOOK DONATION

Our School has been chosen to receive a donation of books to let me start up a reading group(s). The company that is donating the books to us wants us to send a list of authors we like so they give us appropriate books. Any pupil who wants to suggest an author or two pop along to the library where I am keeping a list. Every suggestion gets put into a draw for a mystery pop vinyl figure.
