Recently some parents have parked on the yellow hatch markings outside the church office and the entrance to the churchyard. The latter markings are very faded. Please note these are emergency exits and must be kept clear please. Many thanks for your co-operation.

Front Office

This is from last week’s Round-Up

As St John’s has grown so has the pressure on the front office to provide an efficient service for the school community. However, this is becoming increasingly more difficult due to a large number of parents dropping items off for their children such as packed lunches, musical instruments and even items of clothing. Can I therefore politely ask parents to keep these interruptions to a minimum and to encourage their children to be as independent as possible and remember these items for themselves. There has been a reduction in the amount of interruptions in the front office so many thanks for your co- operation.

Events this Week

Friday 2nd December- St John’s Rugby Team won the area final and now go on to represent Epping Forest at the Essex County Final next year.

Thursday 8th December- Year 4 visited the Museum of London

Christmas Bazaar

I am sure you will want to join me in thanking the PTA and their helpers for running such a well organised and enjoyable Christmas Bazaar on Saturday. It really was a credit to the school. You can see pictures of the day here

Have a good weekend.
Yours sincerely,
