Dear Parents and Carers,


Thank you for attending our Carol Service and a huge thank you to Mr Goremano and Miss Weatherly who have led and developed the school choir this term.  They have done an amazing job, and we are so grateful that they have stepped up to take on this additional role.  


We have a very busy two weeks ahead of us, and I have to say a huge thank you to all the staff who are working so hard to make this Christmas special for everyone.  The shows are fantastic, and I am sure you will really enjoy.  Some parents have reserved tickets, but have not sent in the money, please do this asap.


Exciting News! Caffi Cynefin is going to change it's venue. From January 12th 2023, it will be held in the school hall from 9 am until 11.45 (Last orders 11.30).  We will see many benefits from this change including free wifi, warmth, no rent and we can rotate more pupils into the roles.  We can also expand our menu to include toast, teackes and crumpets.  In addition it will be more child friendly for toddlers and their mums.  As always we will be looking for volunteers to bring some elderly folk,  help with running the caffi and donations of cakes etc.    Can you help us source the following items?  We need:- 

  • 1. Teacups and saucers, small plates, tea pots (various sizes) sugar bowls and milk jugs
  • 2. Tea spoons, forks, butter knives
  • 4. Cushions
  • 5. Cake stands

If you are able to help with any of the above items, please send into school.  They don't have to match - Caffi Cynefin is about bringing people together for a cuppa and a chat, we are not trying to compete with Costa :)!
