It was great to see so many people at the Festive Café on Friday, thank you to everyone who supported this event. Not only is the school beginning to look really festive but an amazing £1087.42 was raised for school funds. Special thanks to the brilliant Friends of Locking School who work tirelessly to support the school. They are always looking for new members and would love you to join them.

Apologies for the number of slips at the bottom of this letter. Please return these as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

All pupils are working really hard this year and will certainly impress you with their performing and musical skills. We are restricted by fire regulations to numbers attending and would ask that you ensure you have a ticket in advance. Any requests for additional tickets will be allocated on Friday 7th.

Parents of Pre School children are asked to use the creche wherever possible. The creche will be in the staff room and run by members of school staff. Please complete the slip below to book a place for your child.

Since September 2013 head teachers have only been allowed to grant leave of absence for exceptional circumstances. The Government expects it to be extremely unusual  for leave of absence / holidays during term time, to be permitted by schools.

From 1st January 2019, Term Time Holiday will not be authorised unless there are exceptional circumstances. Where leave of absence is taken without permission, or suspected holidays have been taken, the Local Authority will fine £60 per parent per pupil.

Please see the attached letter, from our Education Welfare Officer for further details.
