Welcome to our Weekly Newsletter where we share relevant information with you about what has been happening here at Bracken Leas and events planned in future weeks.

Last week we said goodbye to Mrs Lewis who has now moved on to pastures new at our sister school; Marie Weller. As is tradition at Bracken Leas, Mrs Lewis was crowned on her last day here with a rather fetching hat. She also received cards from each year group, presented to her in her leaving assembly by representatives from each year group.

Next week our Year 4 children are off on a residential to Aylmerton in Norfolk. We will be adding photos to this news story as they do the different activities, so check in here if you would like to see what they are up to.


There is currently a Part Time Cleaner vacancy at Bracken Leas. Please click on the link for more details on how to apply.
