Phase A/B Christmas Show

A big well done to all of the children and staff  in Phase A / B for putting on two fantastic Christmas shows this week. DVDs will be available in the New Year.
Moving forward, we are going to rethink productions. This will include: which year groups perform together, how the children are staged, how we film and share productions, parents use of phones in shows and timings of shows. Each of these will all be aimed at improving arrangements for both parents and the school. If you have any suggestions on any of the above, please email Mr Cotter. 

Fox Staff Panto
A massive well done to all the staff who performed in today's staff panto. We had some great performances from Snow White, the Wicked Queen, the Mirror and  the Hunts-thing and his side kick. The children absolutely loved the show.
Fox Play/Breakfast club arrangements from January 2019

In light of the demand for more Fox Play/breakfast club places and to accommodate inconsistent bookings, we have decided to increase the numbers of places we offer. Starting from next term, we will make Fox Play/breakfast club more flexible by employing additional members of staff which will allow us to offer more spaces.  Fox Play spaces will increase from 35 to 50 on Mondays to Thursdays and 55 to 70 on Fridays . Breakfast club will increase from 30 to 40 everyday. In order to do this, we need to cover our extra staffing costs and therefore will be increasing the prices of sessions.
Please click here for more details and the new pricing structure.
