Message from the Senior Leadership Team

Dear Parents/Carers,

It feels very strange that we are already half way through another academic year. Thank you for all your kind donations towards our Health Heroes Day. It was great to see all the children wearing the masks that they have been creating this week. Again we would like to stress the importance of all children being in school whenever possible and also being on time for school every day. It is really pleasing to see how many children have achieved 100% attendance since September, however a small number of children are consistently missing out on their education by having time out of school.

We would like to thank all our parents and carers for their continued support during the past half-term and we hope you have an enjoyable half-term break.

We would like to remind everyone that children return to school on Tuesday 20th February.

Mr Nicholson, Head teacher.

Health Heroes Day 

On Friday 9th February Grafton celebrated Health Heroes day. Children enjoyed celebrating the ‘superhero’ themed day by designing and wearing a mask to raise awareness for this worthy cause.
