Friends of Clavering Easter Egg Hunt and Easter Fayre
On the last morning of term, Friends of Clavering sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt in the playground for all the children. The eggs were hidden all over the grounds (and in the hedges!) and the children had fun hunting them down. Thank you to all the parents and families that supported the Friends of Clavering Easter Fayre this week. A special thank you, once again, to Rachel Betts and her team for all their hard work organising these events.
School starts at 8.50 a.m. We have noticed several children that are consistently arriving late for school – ‘late’ is defined by not being within the school gates by 8.50 a.m. Please make every effort to be at school on time and if you know that your journey will be disrupted by road works, do allow time for this. Thank you.
