Learning Logs – are on their way!

Dear Parents/Carers,

Our brand new Learning Logs for session 2016/17 will be arriving home tomorrow for the first time!

A new approach to Learning Logs is being developed this year and we shall be seeking the views of pupils, parents and staff as the year goes on to ensure these support you in discussing learning and achievements with your child at home.

Over the weekend, please have a look at your child’s first entry in their new Learning Log, and sign it, ready to be brought back to school on Monday.
