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.

Dear Parents & Carers,

Welcome back to a new term and a new academic year at Bracken Leas. It has been a busy and challenging start to the new school year. Thank- you for your patience and understanding as we have needed to ‘tweek’ arrangements over the last couple of days.

As we get into the swing of things in this ‘new normal’ we hope to be able to broaden our ability to offer additional activities such as clubs. Music lessons resume next week which is a positive step in the right direction.

It is lovely to see the children outside in the playground and enjoying themselves. The new playground markings, kindly paid for by FOBL have been an instant hit.

Our new children have settled in well during their Stay & Play sessions with us, extending their time with us next week and going ‘parent free’. An email detailing arrangements for drop off and collection has been sent to you today, please take a few minutes to familiarise yourselves with these arrangements in order to keep the one flow going through the playground area.

Wishing you all a great weekend,

Kind regards,
