·         Funding into school has been cut dramatically, therefore we are tasked with raising as much money for school as possible. Please share any ideas!!

·         Focus between now and December is Books/Reading/Reading schemes.

·         GT looking into reading scheme which will see children reading more appropriate material based on their ability with graded books and a quiz system.

·         More Power of reading books & recommended reading books that are linked would be beneficial for each class – we need to find out how many each class need (i.e 1 book between 2 children)

·         We are still pushing to fill the classroom and library need for more books – any good quality, age appropriate books and topic books that can be donated are a massive help (i.e Space/Romans/WW2 etc)
