Dear North Tawton Families,
It was great to have so many of you join us on line this afternoon to see children's work. Next term I hope to be able to hold assemblies, a Parent Forum and some school events in the flesh!
Well done to Year 4 for organising the Bake Sale last week. They are delighted to announce that they raised £178 for the Ukrainian emergency fund.

Farewell to Mrs Reynolds
The week we said farewell and a huge thank you to Mrs Reynolds. She first started working at the school 19 years ago! She has had various roles in the school and most recently has been running our netball club. She will be missed!
Welcome to Mrs Adams
After Easter we welcome back Mrs Adams to the school office. she will be here Monday to Thursday and Mrs Cassels will be here Fridays. As always, please contact the school office with reasons for absence, urgent messages and general enquiries.
Dojo is a wonderful communication tool; however, I do need to remind parents that teachers do not check Dojo while they are teaching. Urgent messages must go to the school office.
I have instructed teachers not to read and reply to messages in the evenings, at the weekend or in the holidays. I take their well being very seriously and want them to switch off and have time for themselves and their families. I hope you agree and support this.
The catering team are delighted that they have been given a new lunch time menu to cook for our children. We really hope that the children enjoy the new dishes. We will be asking them and letting you know!
We have a vacancy for a mealtime assistant 12.00pm to 1.30pm Monday to Friday (Term Time Only) 7.5 hours per week.
