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.

Switching Off Car Engines

Parents are requested to please ensure you switch your engine off when parked/waiting around the vicinity of school to drop off or collect children. Although this is not a legal requirement in the Highway Code, it is a courtesy to others as well as being environmentally friendly. The safety and health of the children and families of Bracken Leas is very important to us and we would appreciate your support in respecting this request.

Volunteering with Brackley Rainbows

Brackley Rainbows need your help. As a district, Brackley is really struggling for volunteers and have already had to close some units with over 50 young girls on their waiting list. Can you help? Please click on the link to their poster for more details.

We need volunteers!

They would be really grateful for your support.
