Weekly Newsletter – Friday 14th December 2018
Congratulations to Oliver Clements who has achieved merit in his grade 2 piano exam – a wonderful achievement.
We are extremely proud to be named in the Knutsford Guardian as the highest performing school in the area. We have also been listed as the highest performing school in Cheshire, in ‘The Times’. The Knutsford Guardian will also be writing a feature about Lower Peover Primary School SIAMS report over the Christmas break which we look forward to reading.
Christingle Boxes – Year 6 only
Please could the Christingle boxes be returned to school on Monday 17th December.
Lunch on Friday 21st December
As we have Paul Storey – magician in school on this date we have altered the Friday menu to ensure that the children can sit down to watch the production at 12.30. The menu is hot dog/ veggie burger or fishcake with chips, plus pudding. Please order via Live Kitchen as normal.

Health and Safety
Please could I encourage you to turn off your engines, at the end of the day, on the playground as quite a few cars engines are idling for long periods. A few parents have mentioned their concerns about unnecessary polluting of the air adjacent to the school building. Thank you.
