World Book Day Update for Thursday 2nd March

Dear Parents/ Carers,


Earlier today, a message was sent out to parents to let them know that, although it has been tradition previously, we wouldn't be asking children to come to school this Thursday 2nd March on World Book Day dressed up in costume. The reason for this is because of the concern we have that for many parents buying fancy dress costumes is extremely difficult at a time when the Cost of Living crisis is impacting on them. I appreciate however that this message was sent out late.


Having sent the mesage out, we have had contact from parents who were disappointed and have already prepared costumes for their child over the holiday.


As a compromise then, I am going to suggest that on Thursday we will have a Non-Uniform Day for World Book Day. Children will have the option, either to come dressed as their favourite book or story character or to come in non-uniform on that day. However, if your child is dressing up, please do not feel that you need to go out and buy a costume.


Many thanks,


Mr Beale
