Monkton Park Newsletter Friday 5th January 2024

Welcome back

Welcome back and happy new year to you all. We hope you have all had a lovely break and are ready to start back in 2024. We have lots booked in for this term already and next week sees all children taking part in some African dance workshops.


Please can we remind pupils to keep jewellery to a minimum. Earrings should only be studs and should be small and either removed or covered for PE.

Collecting & Dropping off

Please can we remind parents when dropping off and collecting to be considerate where you are parking and pulling in. We have had a few complaints of cars blocking dropped kerbs and driveways, some of which require 24/7 access. Thank you.
