Please look at the website or listen to Radio Cambridge for weather updates re school closures if it ends up being very heavy….At this stage the plan is to stay fully open as we have lots of exciting things planned for the coming week!

The Vicar of St. John’s Church –  James Shakespeare – has emailed to say he is very happy to offer support to families on any issues, including bereavement, if anyone would like to contact him.  His details are jshakespeare@btinternet.com or he can be contacted by phone on 01223 241815. Parents’ evenings for Nursery children who started in the Autumn Term, are continuing in the coming week. Please check your child’s classroom door to sign up for a 10 minute appointment with your class staff. We would be very grateful if you could also complete the parent survey that is given to you at the time of parent consultations.  We really value your views on Homerton and how we can improve on what we do.  The survey is anonymous and...
