Dear Parents/Carers

Re. Sports day postponed to Thursday 19th July

The weather is perfect, everything is in place but alas…  One of our neighbours has shared with the school that a very large tree in their garden is dangerously leaning over our running track.  The Tree Surgeon has reported it is too dangerous to allow the full running track to be used for our planned sports day tomorrow.

Therefore sports day is postponed to Thursday morning at the same time.  This give us the chance either to get the tree felled or the running track re marked to a safe place.  Even if neither actions can be achieved we will still run sports day but will have time to augment our plans to work in as safe area of field.

Students are reminded on Thursday they are permitted to wear either school uniform or school PE kit only and bring a hat and lots to drink.  Tomorrow is normal summer uniform (no ties or blazers) and students will need books and equipment for lessons all day.

Regretfully the change in date means the children taking part in the choir tour will have already departed to Devon and so cannot take part in Sports Day.

If it is not snow or blazing heat it is a tree that blights our plans!
