Dear Parents and Carers,

In addition to homework, any help you can give with times tables, spelling and reading will

really help. Reading records are collected on a Thursday and certificates given to the best ones. Our website contains lots of ideas as to how to further support your child. This term we are also planning to start a parent and child gardening club with ‘Let’s Grow.’

It is an absolute privilege to be the Acting Headteacher of Donnington Wood, a school and community which strives to give the best opportunities to all. I know 2017 is going to be an excellent year.

Thank you for your continued support,

Mr Fox

Acting Headteacher
