Dear Parents/Carers, 

I hope you are all well as we approach the half term break. I am writing with details of the recreational visits taking place next week as part of our third “Cultural Capital Week” of the academic year.  

Every student is expected to be in school, on time, every day. Our final week at school will include academic and cultural capital activities both as a part of our curriculum offer and also as a thank you for their hard work throughout this term.
