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.

Year 5 have been taking part in Bikeabilty this week. We have been so lucky to have the sunny weather and the children have all enjoyed this training immensely.

The hard work continues on the redevelopment of our Eco Area. We have a long shopping list of items and support that we need to deliver this project and volunteers and donations would be gratefully received. Please click on the link below to our news story on this.

Mrs Harwood and the Year 6 Team have been hard at work putting the final touches to our plans for our children during their final term with us. If you have a child in year 6 then you will have received an email today about the summer term and our planned celebrations. Please check your inbox for details.

Finally, we are excited to announce that we are introducing changes to complement our uniform from this September. We believe as a school that wearing uniform unites us and instils a sense of identity and pride in our school. An email has been sent out to all parents, and details have also been updated on the school website. Here is a link https://www.brackenleasschool.co.uk/parents/school-handbook/uniform/
