Local suppliers include Wild Lotus offering unique hand printed tea towels, handmade fudge from Fudgelicious, locally cured meats from Bray Cured, engraved wood from Blue Acorn plus fairies, gonks and gifts alongside homemade wax melts, Tropic skincare and even an artisan gin! For a full list please go to our Facebook page where the event will have all the details with links to browse before the evening itself.

We are still giving out so many disposable face masks to girls who have forgotten their mask and/or broken the disposable one they have already been given. Please may we ask for parental support in ensuring your daughter has a reusable face mask with her when coming into school, and always carries a spare with her in her school bag, so we can significantly reduce the number of disposable face masks being handed out daily. Thank you.
Please remember Lateral Flow tests are for asymptomatic testing only, and if displaying any of the three covid symptoms of persistent cough, temperature or loss of taste, a PCR test should be taken.
Your daughter should be bringing home a new pack of LFD tests with her today. Please do ensure she is testing consistently twice a week at home and reporting the results. LFD tests have been widely and successfully used to detect asymptomatic COVID-19 cases. A recent report has shown that the accuracy of LFD tests was more than 80% effective at detecting any level of COVID-19 infection and likely to be more than 90% effective at detecting the most infectious people at the point of testing. So please continue testing to keep everyone as safe as possible!
